Ratings and Reviews
This truly is a great help for an beginner adult (senior) piano player. I’m using the physical book to learn. But, to know you’re playing it correctly it helps to actually hear what it is supposed to sound like. I’ve shared this app with 2 other beginners and they find it quite helpful too.
My only suggestion would be to add an option to display the suggested finger position. The option would allow the user to turn display or hide the suggested finger position. That way I could take the music with me without the book.
That said, there is no substitute for the book. But, this is a “must have” partner to it. I still give it a full 5 stars.
Perfect Companion For Learning Piano
What a fantastic tool this app is. My daughter and I are learning piano and this app has several valuable tools built into it that will help you with your lessons and practice. It’s very easy to use and is full of useful features such as music scores with backing tracks, tempo adjustments, mute left or right hands, looper, metronome, and more. Very well priced as well.
I love the user interface on this app. Unlike other apps, you can disable the keyboard from showing while performing the musical pieces. It can also detect your piano input via iPad microphone or through midi. I like the fact that I can use my Akai LPK25 in conjunction with the midimittr app. My only qualm is that you cannot upload new scores, and the sheet music is limited. Otherwise, nice app.
