What's New in Version 3.0
This new version of Piano Maestro is all about improvements!
-We've improved the MusicSense (acoustic premonition) to make playing with your piano or keyboard that much better
-Minor bug fixes (sorry about those!)
Fantastic app - but some bugs need taking care of
I have to admit that I am an adult and this app is really meant for children… but its a very fun way to at least attempt to learn the piano. Thwacking dirt off the imaginary keyboard is strangely addictive. I have no previous experience and am not musical but in a week or so could passably play along to both Katy Perry and Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony (clearly covering all the greats!) More than five stars for this!
There are some annoying bugs and also some possible improvements. Bugs include sometimes it is incredibly slow to load. You can make and drink a coffee in the time and sometimes it just gives up and crashes altogether. Occasionally it doesn’t record the score and, most annoying, sometimes fails to recognize a note from the piano so I end up plonking middle C 16 times or so before it recognizes and calibrates the game. These bugs would be good to fix, but they don’t seriously let it down.
As improvements, as others have said it would be nice if you could slow down a tune to help to learn or play a segment. I also think it would be good if there was a headphones mode as I live in an apartment and while listening to the keyboard is simple - the rest of the floor isn’t as keen.
Overall though a great app.
Really fun but fixing a couple of bugs would help!
I really enjoy playing this game but I'm kind of hitting a ceiling because of a couple of issues with the practice mode, the biggest of which is that you can't practice one section of a song repeatedly. When you're practicing a song on the piano, you repeat the areas you're having problems with until you get it right and then put the whole song together; DustBuster makes you play the whole song through. If they fixed this it would really make a difference in skill levels players could legitimately reach.
We became premium members
We got a keyboard for our kids to learn Piano. After playing around with multiple Apps we decided that this is the best to make learning piano and sight reading music fun. There are tons of songs, the app listens as we play, and we can learn with real music on a staff. It is easy enough for my 3 year old to get, my 6 year old loves it, and my wife and I are able to play around and our piano lessons from childhood are coming back.
