Pianonome is a patent pending piano-learning platform app for iPad and iPhone. It helps you to have more efficient piano practice sessions. The app using the built-in microphone of your iPad and iPhone, listens to your playing, and tells what notes you played wrong and/or uneven (out of tempo).

Piano teachers and book authors can upload their books or pieces to the platform which you can download from the Pianonome app library.

After installing Pianonome, you first need to tune the app to your piano. Then you are ready to practice the 40 scores that come with the app. You will have a Practicing mode and Evaluation mode. Practicing mode is where you can click the pause button and correct your notes then proceed. In the practicing mode the correctly played note will be colored in blue and once you make a mistake it ill be colored in red and the rhythmic unevenness will be marked with a blue square. Also, there is the evaluation mode where the notes appear on the screen, and the last correctly played note will be colored in blue. Pianonome has an integrated metronome providing visual and audible tempo cues.

For iPhones, you will need headsets for the audible metronome. For iPad, headsets are optional for using the audible metronome.

Make sure the practice room is quiet while tuning the app and practicing, as background noise (for example, talking or music) will degrade the quality of note detection. Remember that Pianonome is listening to your piano using the microphone!

Almost completely amazing.

Functionally exactly what I was looking for a few years ago. The UI Is in need of polishing.. but works great. My wish is that you could somehow upload scores you’re trying to work on in pdf form or incorporate purchased sheet music to learn from.. though if I practice with the app enough maybe I won’t need to?

I purchased this for my 7 year old daughter who has been taking piano lessons for a year now. It has been very helpful in helping her practice in between lessons. First you have to "tune" your app with the piano. This way the app can tell you if you play the wrong note. It also has a metronome so it teaches you how to play more evenly. I would recommend this for anyone who is a beginner in piano or any parent who wants their child to have a piano teacher at a fraction of the price. Highly recommend! **update: what's also great is the lessons in the app are constantly being updated so there's always new pieces to learn. All in one price.**

Great challenging and fun app!

I have enjoyed testing this app out for students and have begun using it with considerable success as a teaching supplement. My students really enjoy working with the app to build evenness of tempo and accuracy in note marksmanship. I'm amazed at how perceptive it is in catching tempo fluctuations. I highly recommend this app for any early student's ongoing piano growth.
