Description
Piano Academy is for anyone who's looking to learn the piano from scratch, or for those who have prior knowledge and want to continue learning by practice playing along to their favorite songs. Piano Academy offers an on-screen touch keyboard so you can start playing immediately. The app also supports MIDI connection, and it can even detect the notes you play if you have an acoustic or electronic piano. MAIN FEATURES - Watch tutorial videos introduced to you by your personal instructor, teaching you theory topics like notes, the staff, chords, and much more. - The app listens to every note you play and gives you instant feedback, so you know how to improve. - Practice playing tons of great tunes by reading real sheet music. - Play fun games to train your musical hearing, hand-coordination, and sense of rhythm. WHO IS IT FOR? Piano Academy is suitable for all ages, from kids to adults. We have designed and built this app from the very beginning to help transform even the complete beginners into actual pianists. HOW DOES IT WORK? We are going to teach you how to read notes, so you'll be able to play while reading sheet music. You'll play tons of amazing classical pieces, as well as contemporary hit-songs on your own. As you progress, you'll learn to play with both hands, play chords, and much more. Theory topics are introduced to you by your personal instructor with the aid of animations and walk-through videos. You will play fun games that are explicitly designed to train your senses, such as musical hearing, hand-coordination, and your sense of rhythm, among other skills. And the crowning glory is our staff player that shows music notes as you see in real sheet music. The notes are perfectly synced with the background music that will accompany you while playing. The app listens to every note you play and gives you instant feedback, so you know whether you hit the correct note at the right time.

This game made me the best piano player in the world so this is the best game ever I wouldn’t have ever been the best piano playerIf I didn’t have this game so therefore this game is the best I love all of the most fun things about it I even get to learn piano it gives you a lesson and it’s fun but I tried to learn piano by myself but that didn’t work So when I saw the ad for this game I was like maybe this will work and then it did so thank you for this game it helps me every single day and oh my piano lessons I get all of them right so thank you and goodbye

by RADplayer124 on 2020/10/07 00:45
I was in the app but it was AMAZING, but throughout the lessons, it starts getting harder and harder, and it is about to feel like I am having too much pressure, and add extra games if you can, but the app is awesome so please make it a bit simpler. Thank you! and also make more for intermediate songs for BTS such as Dynamite.

by tiktok1275 on 2020/09/23 20:45
I think the app is really good because it has a private lesson and it’s helping me learn how to play the piano since were in quarantine during Covid so it’s really been helping me.

Great
by nonleft on 2020/09/17 14:32
It is great it is just they think you know a lot so they give you boss songs and it is a little hard but it is great because I learned a to g for the piano but I don’t like that you have to pay because I only have $19.53 because I am a kid but I am going to get more money.
Upgrade the app
by iphoneappchecker2020 on 2020/09/14 22:55
I would appreciate if you would make it listen to a piano also.
Might just be a me thing?
by Slimeatory lover on 2020/09/12 16:11
Overall its a decent piano app, though there are a few problems i’ve come across. For example on lesson 10, Left hand introductions, I played the correct notes every time, but it always registered it as the wrong note. I’ve also checked with the online keyboard they provide, and all the notes were correct. I’m not sure if thats just a bug that happened with me, or something. It used to work, but when i got to the Ode To Joy practice, it started happening. I’ve tried going back to old practices and songs, but it always registered wrong. I went back to the video, and it was the correct hand positioning. Im not sure if its just me, or if this is a problem other people experience, but this is one of the major issues i have at come across.
SERIOUSLY
by funimage all on 2020/09/11 22:39
I had this app before and some of the songs were free now you have to pay to play song which is ridiculous.

Amazing app
by pianolover100 on 2020/08/27 19:37
I would totally recommend this app to any one with little or none piano experience. There’s plenty of songs to choose from and with the membership you can unlock all the songs which I thing is so worth you’re money.
Simply piano is better
by scrappy049 on 2020/08/26 22:04
Listens progress too fast in an awkward way, it doesn’t let you practice repeatedly, so before you know it you will be stuck with complicated notes. So in order to practice it, you have to go back to the same lessons to play the same boring songs, which actually doesn’t didn’t help because your ears and fingers memorize the movement before your eyes do, so you will pass the lesson eventually but, it doesn’t help you with note reading. And each lessons loads way too slow because of unnecessary “shows” such as painfully long cheerings or pauses that come between lessons. So it makes you sick to move on. Only the lesson I feel like I could take was that birds on telephone lines because all the notes seems to be different every time I try, but again, I have to wait for the narrator talking and wait for the birds to land on the stupid telephone lines and it just takes forever. Terrible way to learn piano.
Cool

Music sheet note
by pourdad on 2020/08/23 19:40
Hello Piano Academy Team First I must thanks for your app. Very very good in UX section. Learning curve progress it’s very good but I have one important notice : I thing you must add section for showing all music played sheet note. Because when I’m habit with your music note with animation and play note with movement animation , Maybe after months I can’t play note from sheet because I’m habit with animation. You can add section for example music sheet note course 1 and I can see all music played sheet note and practice. These two things ( playing note with animation movement and play from sheets) together , Strengthen the students. Again congratulate to your team for creating this app. Best regards
NO
by SSdhhdEy on 2020/08/23 04:12
It does NOT listen to ur notes at all, While ur playing the right notes it says ur not!
This App is a SCAM
by ScoHaz on 2020/08/22 14:30
My original iPad died. I asked this company to restore my subscription status of the app I pay $119 a year for. I heard nothing back, so I asked for a refund. I also heard nothing back on that request. Apple offers no help. This operation is pure scam. Buy at your own risk.
WARNING! 1 week purchase RENEWS Automatically !!!
by KM2.0 on 2020/08/20 16:04
Ugh - why would anyone purchase one week for 7.99 with automatic renewal in 1 week if there is a 1 month option for 15.99 - one renewal costs me MORE FOR TWO WEEKS than the 1 month option !!! I hope you enjoy the bad karma of stealing my money.

BEST APP EVER

It’s so fun it’s not like simply piano this app corrects you from right to wrong and it waits for you it’s amazing you should get this app
The good and the bad (update)
by Pianistalove4453 on 2020/08/13 22:40
So let’s start with good. This app has been great for me! I’ve been wanting to play piano for awhile but for some reason I have never been able to. I got a piano now and I’ve done some homework. Learned how it works, where the notes are, what the pedals are for, etc. Well I couldn’t find a teacher (especially since the pandemic) so I settled for an app. A friend suggested this app and they say a lot of good things about it. He plays amazing and I hope to someday be in his level. So far, this app has taught me so much! I like the choices of songs and it pretty fun. Now the things that kinda annoys me is the note recognition. Its actually very annoying having the app tell you the notes are wrong even after checking finger position and everything. I would love some help or maybe someone to tell me what to do. Idk if it’s my iPad, the piano or the app. Might be the app, cause then why would I write this. Anyway I would very much appreciate it if someone would help. Thank you have a nice day ☺️. Update: Noooo now it won’t recognize ANY notes while playing in the songbook 😭. HELP WHY WONT IT WORK. ITS NOT MY IPAD ITS NEW AND SO IS THE PIANO. There go your stars...
Best game ever

Best app but still needs improvement
by OliviaRoyal on 2020/08/09 20:19
This is the best piano teaching app I have tried, and the one with the most content for free users. However, the sheet music for the songs needs to be available. Practicing complicated songs one thousand times in a row on the songbook is awful. This could be easily fixed with the sheet music available for practicing.
Still some problems, but mostly fine

Good content/design, poor acoustic note recognition
by Collin Luke on 2020/08/05 18:09
I like the app content, layout, and teaching methodologies but the acoustic note recognition is wanting. It is often wrong and requires I play way too loud to get any sort of accuracy; this alone caused me to cancel my subscription. I often have to play the notes early and make my play off-beat to get them to be recognized. I know an expert app developer if you guys need some help.

Great app to learn to play the piano for beginners, the pricing is great. My problem is lesson 10 because it doesn’t pick up the keys even if I play them, it won’t let me move on because it keeps saying that I am not playing the keys when I am.

Doesn’t hear my piano anymore
by les805 on 2020/08/03 17:13
We have used this app for several months now and have loved it. Now it no longer “hears” our piano. What’s changed in the app and why? Very disappointed especially for my daughter who has really enjoyed playing during this a Covid time.

by Madmonkey114879 on 2020/07/30 19:35
I just downloaded the app and played maybe 2 tutorials had a bit of trouble cause it wouldn’t hear the note every now an then. I make sure the room is as quiet as it can be turn my keyboard all the way up doesn’t hear a single note I’m playing so I’m sitting there jamming a note for 5 minutes. Great Marketing horrible app

Hmmm
New to piano and love it but I have a suggestion
by madelinedg on 2020/07/22 21:22
First off let me say you really have to use headphones otherwise it doesn’t pick up that you’re playing the right notes. Secondly it’s amazing as a beginner to piano and I would much rather pay $16/mo than pay for formal lessons. My suggestion is that in addition to many people who ask to be able to see full sheet music, especially since we’re paying for this app that should be a given, but I would also like the ability to just go over a portion of the song. Many times I’m struggling with one part which is in the middle or the end of the song but I have to restart the entire song to work on it and have to play through things I feel comfortable with when really I just want to go over the part I’m finding more challenging. Otherwise great app and I’m really enjoying learning piano! As a side note I already play guitar and have for many years and have been singing all my life so music isn’t new for me but when it comes to piano I’m a total noob!

Good but not so good
by RealBG1 on 2020/07/21 17:51
I love this app but I need a special thing that connects to the piano because if I do not have that it dose not hear me at all. It also makes it so much more difficult than having a real teacher because it dose not take you throw every step.But I do like it for it is the best piano app than all the other ones.

Great piano learning app
by Duc.Rider on 2019/01/02 15:57
Update: for those having note recognition issues, use headphones. You can still hear the piano but the accompaniment music doesn't interfere with the microphones picking up played piano notes. Had zero issues with software hearing notes this way. I’m a 53 yr old newbie to piano (I play tuba but doesn’t fit well with other family instruments). I’ve dinked around with piano through the years but want to play cord pads mainly on keyboard with family that plays piano or guitar. I need to get some note learning and muscle memory working in my favor to be something other than an embarrassment. I have a long road ahead but I’m having fun blasting through the lessens. At first it felt a bit kid oriented however that soon changed after the first few lessens. Love that the app works with MIDI - I’m practicing at midnight with headphones! I’d never be able to learn on a regular piano with my and my family’s schedule. Thank you for including MIDI! My goal is to play a few (up to six) songs with family after one year for church. My goal is to not miss more than 30 days out of a year of practice. I’m excited to see where this app will take me!! So far it’s about right, however it’s wise to go ever some songs several times before moving on, which you can do by pressing the back button before the practice song ends (saves a little time from having to go through the reward screen. I’ll update my review further after more lessens are completed.
Cool app, needs improvement
by Blondebomber626 on 2020/03/14 23:28
I pay for this app and it’s not cheap! I probably won’t renew because there are some things that need to be improved. For instance, it reads the notes incorrectly much of the time so it would be nice to have a function in the settings where instead of using my microphone, the app connects with my digital piano through bluetooth and reads the notes that I’m actually pressing (this way I can also leave my piano volume down if I choose). Also, if I am paying for the premium version of this app, I should have access to full sheet music. You cannot repeatedly practice the harder pieces as scrolling notes. You just can’t. Give me sheet music or give me the ability to scroll through the upcoming notes in the pause screen. Lastly, I will have completed an entire lesson section and the next day it shows incomplete because somehow it doesn’t register that I’ve already watched the lesson video? It’s not that big of a deal because I can still progress forward, but again if I am paying so much for the app I expect it to work. I’m sure that small problem can be fixed with a simple update though! Overall, the app has certainly been helpful in sight reading practice and teaching me new songs, and even some stuff my piano teacher glosses over :-) I enjoy the songbook portion too.
Good but...
by sistersagmoon on 2020/05/01 23:56
I’ve only been using this a little over a week, and am learning piano for the first time, but have played other instruments as a child so the theory isn’t completely new, HOWEVER, I am almost done with the first level (12 or so lessons) and the practice songs in the songbook are a bit frustrating. They teach you a four-count and the symbol for a one beat pause, but a lot of the songs have half-beats and what I assume are half-beat pause symbols, and you just have to figure out how to count that while still learning the notes and hand placement and it is really becoming frustrating. I am having a hard time counting some beats bc they are like 2.5 or 3.5 but it’s hard to tell from the way it’s displayed and there’s no one to ask. I don’t understand why they would throw all that at us without instructing us first. Other than that I’ve enjoyed the app, and like that you can use a keyboard in the app before laying out several hundred for a decent keyboard, but you can really only go so far with the app keyboard (forget two hands!). The developer also seems open to feedback and implements the suggestions, which is good.
Great for beginners - Tedious for others
by lesbian.ham on 2018/12/14 21:57
It’s great for beginners! There’s just two things I’m not a fan of. When I first downloaded this app, I didn’t have a real keyboard available to me, so I had to use the virtual one in the app. The problem is the keys are smaller than my fingers, so it’s hard to make sure you hit them perfectly. I found that hitting them slightly to the side either wasn’t recognized, or was recognized as the note next to the correct key. But obviously, this will not be a problem for those who have a physical piano/keyboard available to them. Another criticism that I have is that you have to unlock everything starting from the very beginning. That’s great for beginners, and I understand that’s who this is meant for. But it would be nice for those who already know a little bit, or those who play other instruments and already know what clef and a staff are to be able to start at their current skill level and skip what they’ve already learned elsewhere. Though with that said, it seems that the lessons are fairly quick, so it’s not the end of the world. It’s just an annoyance for those who aren’t complete beginners who have no musical knowledge under their belt, going into this.
Great at first
by vevexus on 2020/01/13 17:54
I started using this app almost a month ago with absolutely zero experience. It has been fantastic learning from square one with a gamified experience that gradually gets more like reading real sheet music as you progress. I subscribed after a few hours and had no regrets until recently. I really only have one gripe - that you cannot redo certain sections of the songs. I am forced to pause - restart and wait for the section I am working on to come up. If I am lucky the section fits on one screen and I can pause it and just work on it while paused or take a picture with my phone. It is especially frustrating when the instructor has a small speech at the beginning, forcing you to hear his spiel over and over again before the music even starts scrolling. All I want to do is rewind but I cannot. Early on I mastered the songs fast enough to not care so much but it takes longer and longer to master the songs as they get longer and more complex which means restarting a lot more. I cannot continue so inefficiently... I really feel invested in the app (not just monetarily) and want to use it.. but I’m done and moving to flowkey which lets you loop any section you want to work on.
My piano skills have improved greatly!
by itsmedcj on 2019/11/08 02:45
I am in my 30s and have always had the desire to play piano. I have tried several attempts throughout the years but just couldn’t stick with it. However after doing this app for about two months now, I am playing Music in ways I thought I never could. I really appreciate this app and I’m so thankful for it. One suggestion I have is if we could see the full sheet music so that way we can practice on the areas that we may have problems on instead of having to start the whole song completely over and wait until we get to that part. That’s a little annoying. Also I’m not into secular music. I enjoy learning with the classical pieces much better. But I know you can’t please everyone with the music selections LOL. I will also email my suggestions as the app developer has suggested because I really want to stick with this app to improve my piano skills it has help me tremendously.
The good and the bad (update)
by Pianistalove4453 on 2020/08/13 22:40
So let’s start with good. This app has been great for me! I’ve been wanting to play piano for awhile but for some reason I have never been able to. I got a piano now and I’ve done some homework. Learned how it works, where the notes are, what the pedals are for, etc. Well I couldn’t find a teacher (especially since the pandemic) so I settled for an app. A friend suggested this app and they say a lot of good things about it. He plays amazing and I hope to someday be in his level. So far, this app has taught me so much! I like the choices of songs and it pretty fun. Now the things that kinda annoys me is the note recognition. Its actually very annoying having the app tell you the notes are wrong even after checking finger position and everything. I would love some help or maybe someone to tell me what to do. Idk if it’s my iPad, the piano or the app. Might be the app, cause then why would I write this. Anyway I would very much appreciate it if someone would help. Thank you have a nice day ☺️. Update: Noooo now it won’t recognize ANY notes while playing in the songbook 😭. HELP WHY WONT IT WORK. ITS NOT MY IPAD ITS NEW AND SO IS THE PIANO. There go your stars...
New to piano and love it but I have a suggestion
by madelinedg on 2020/07/22 21:22
First off let me say you really have to use headphones otherwise it doesn’t pick up that you’re playing the right notes. Secondly it’s amazing as a beginner to piano and I would much rather pay $16/mo than pay for formal lessons. My suggestion is that in addition to many people who ask to be able to see full sheet music, especially since we’re paying for this app that should be a given, but I would also like the ability to just go over a portion of the song. Many times I’m struggling with one part which is in the middle or the end of the song but I have to restart the entire song to work on it and have to play through things I feel comfortable with when really I just want to go over the part I’m finding more challenging. Otherwise great app and I’m really enjoying learning piano! As a side note I already play guitar and have for many years and have been singing all my life so music isn’t new for me but when it comes to piano I’m a total noob!
It was a lot better months ago
by BlueFurryAnimals on 2020/03/16 20:50
I first got this app around 6 or 7 months ago when I first decided to learn piano. It was great then and you could play many songs for free and whatever. But you could only go so far in the lessons before they wanted you to subscribe. Then I stopped playing for awhile till I checked in around 2 months ago, this is where everything went downhill. I came back to app after realizing how much I missed it 2 months ago like I had said. I quickly realized that almost every song was marked only for people who subscribed. Every single song I liked I could no longer play. I’m pretty Itsy Bistsy Spider was marked for people who subscribed as well. It’s terrible. I understand that they as a company need to make money somehow but I encourage that a subscription isn’t the best way to do it, especially if the plans aren’t that affordable for everyone. So listen to my idea, people who want to play a song have to watch an add per song. And like a couple ads at a time to unlock a lesson. This way the company can still make money. If someone is really truly fed up with all the ads they have to watch then they can pay for a subscription or something.
Best app ever!
by queen of kindness2011 on 2019/12/27 01:00
This is the best app ever! It’s so good to learn with if your thinking about learning piano this is the app for you. I was thinking like I really want to learn piano. I found one app already but since I didn’t have it on my mom’s iPad I was trying to reload it. So I searched the app and this app popped up along with the app I was looking for. So i was looking at the reviews they were all good and I’m like why not give it a try I downloaded it and loved it. As soon as it downloaded I started playing songs I saw the intro and watched it. And I’m like cool a real piano teacher. As soon as I started I got hooked playing song after song looking for my favorite songs. I told my dad this is cool. I created an account so he could get my progress. I kept playing I totally love it! thank you so much. It’s a great app I am gonna practice a lot now. If you wanna learn piano download this app please!
best piano app!
by jaylaxxx on 2019/01/21 00:31
okay to start this off, i don’t usually write reviews but i thought that this really just deserved one. i just want to say this app is so well created. if you had trouble finding an irl teacher, or piano app, i assure you this is the one. it would help to have prior music experience, especially when it comes to reading notes. but all is well, because they tell you every note, and breaks everything down into little videos, quizzes, games and playing tests! it’s everything you’ve ever wanted! best part is, the app listens to you play to check for accuracy, i don’t know what else anyone would want. the only downside i’d prolly have to say is that sometimes the app says the note is wrong/right when it actually isn’t. but most of the time it’s all good! anyway i hope this helps you download the app, ALSO last thing, everything is FREE! xx
Powerful Tool
by RMohney on 2019/02/01 01:29
This app is simply awesome!!! I have never played or studied music before but have always wanted to learn to play the piano. Looking for different apps led me here! So far, this app has been challenging, entertaining, and educational. It’s setup in a way that teaches you the basics of music while pushing you to practice your skills on a keyboard or piano. I will admit... having access to a keyboard or piano is extremely better and will give you more out of this experience. It’s pretty cool too cause it ends up teaching you interactively with your phone or tablet through the microphone and speaker. If you have played any sort of rock band or guitar hero on a video game console you have an advantage! It’s like the rock band of real life! Thanks for the app and for the opportunity to use it for free. I look forward to practicing and working on my skills!
It’s changed, and I don’t like it.
by Waffles is my dog and cute🐶 on 2019/06/27 21:25
Piano Academy has changed because of the Premium Pack. I cannot learn ANYTHING!!! I want to know, can you guys at least leave SOME lessons without premium? This is really bothering me and I don’t want premium in Piano Academy. Actually, I would be FINE if you left premium for the SONGS, but soooo NOT the lessons. I was learning piano finely, until the Premium pack came. Please, please, PLEASE, take the Premium Pack off on the lessons. I would take my time to write this review. This is how you know: my cousin is here and she’s kinda bored, but Piano Academy is important to me, and her. Please, take my advice. A lot of people started disliking this app. I’m sorry, but I might be one of those people, because this is just (sorry, but) kinda annoying that I can’t play ANY lessons. Please, make this a better piano learning app. After all, it was the GREATEST piano app ever, but now it has changed. Sorry. One of your app customers, Me😂😅😜
Piano academy
by 👁❤️🏀 on 2020/05/19 15:18
I liked the app at first and I liked it. I had played piano before, but because of the coronavirus, my lessons got cancelled. So I have been looking for a app to teach me. I used to have simply piano, but then I quit and when I asked my mom to pay for it again, she said it took away too much of her money. So I have been on a quest to find another piano app. I saw ads for all different piano apps, and they all wanted me to pay money to learn, so I tried this one. I was playing pretty good, but it was all beginner stuff that i had already played, and even though I told the app I have played before, I gave me easy things. When I got to the song perfect, I was about to play the first note C. So I played a C and it paused. It was not connecting. I was trying to play a C and it wouldn’t work. I tried so many times and it wouldn’t work. The app is also constantly trying to make me pay for it, even though I keep saying no. I just downloaded this app, and I am now about to delete it. I highly recommend no one to use this app.
Omg I love this app
by GoUSA2012!! on 2018/12/16 19:34
I tried other Piano apps (like that terrible Joy one) and this one is awesome! The lessons are simple, ordered well, and focused on getting you to play songs you know as quickly as possible, even when you only play 3 notes. The app works great—no awkward “practice” modes when you don’t get things perfectly right. You just replay the songs over again as many times as you need. It’s easy to navigate so that both my son and I can go at our own paces. (Although I just put this on his iPad so he’ll stop using mine.) I’m addicted to this app, and super excited about learning piano this way. And it’s free, which is amazing. I sound like I got paid to write this (not true), and I would totally pay for this app.
Good Before Update
by Athena9306 on 2019/03/15 21:02
All the lessons are simple and easy to understand and I recommend it to any beginner who is struggling to learn. I stopped practicing for awhile because I was busy with other things. When I came back to start on my lessons again, I saw it has to be updated. So I did. And I regret it. I never had any problems with this app until now. It's extremely frustrating because the app doesn't read the notes correctly! When you press a key it's supossed to respond and correct or wrong. Now, it's not reading any of the keys I'm pressing even though it's correct. It made me upset thinking I was messing up and I was disappointed in myself then to come to a realization that i'm not messing up and it's Piano Academy. It's disappointing because I loved this app and I wanted to continue learning how to become a pianist. It hasn't given me problems until now. This was the only app that I could find that wouldn't charge me 100$ to continue my lessons. I was so happy when I found it. Now, I'm having problems. I don't want top have to look for another app. I'm not in school so I can't get lessons there, I don't know how to self teach myself to play, and I don't have the money to pay for extra lessons. I'm struggling as it is. Hopefully this isn't bothersome. I have low self esteem and anxiety and playing made me happy, now I just want to sleep my disappointment off. Thank you anyway
Great! But needs one main improvement
by RED*345 on 2019/02/13 00:10
I just started learning piano, and it’s been great using this app! I love how I’ve learned music theory along with the general piano, it’s exactly what I’d been looking for. However, the app could use one main improvement: When learning new songs for lessons, it would be helpful to be able to change the speed of the song from slower to full speed. That way, one could practice the song at a slower pace and make their way up to full speed. I know the songs in lessons have “slower pace” practice before the full pace song, but even that’s too fast sometimes for a very beginner. It’d be nice to determine the speed by yourself (this goes for both songs AND practice exercises)- maybe have a sliding bar for speed so the student can manually change the pace of the song. Otherwise, this is a great app!
GREAT app with one very annoying bug
by I aM a LoAf oF bReAd on 2020/01/29 01:03
This app is great. I came to this app thinking there was no other app that can teach you in a fun way. But I got to the part where you start playing with your left hand. There is nothing wrong with how they are teaching you but sometimes I would play a key exactly when I am supposed to and on the the exact note but it would still say its wrong and I have to do the song over again because I got zero stars. Now I do not have a real piano. I have a electric piano with only 43 notes(its a Casio SA-76) so it does not sound like a real a grand piano but it is extremely close to the actually sound. Just with alot less bass. So I reccomend this app if you have ether a real piano or a very good sounding electronic piano but if you have something like me then you probably will have some trouble.
Needs work but not horrible
by Timfoolio on 2019/01/16 08:22
I think this app has potential. Nice flow with videos and progressive lessons. But it can be frustrating at times. The biggest flaw is it being too fast for a beginner...once you reach intervals and using both hands. The problem I have is you have these training parts for songs that you can’t pause, or slow down and see what you keep missing. Instead you fight through it then redo it over and over again. Then once you feel good about that and move on to the actual song they throw in new notes and intervals you haven’t practiced for that song at full speed. Simply Piano does a much better job at training you on the parts for the “full song” you will play. If you miss too many notes it will rewind and play that section over for you. If you keep missing, it will take you into a practice mode that is slowed down and will pause on a missed note until you get it right. You can also pick the speed of the song...100%, 80% or 60%...which is incredibly helpful. The other problem is it doesn’t recognize every note you hit. So about 20% of correct notes and timing are not recognized and counts as a missed note. Like I said it has potential...and it is free compared to $120 annually with Simply Piano.
Awesome App!! Works Perfectly!!
by jazmmine on 2020/03/29 19:07
I love this app. This app lets me play any song i like. I love how it stops and lets u catch up to the notes so u can learn little by little. I also love that u can change to Begginer, intermediated , or advanced once u go to Intermediate it lets u do the song with Remebering the notes!!! It’s awesome I love this piano app!! It works better than any other app. Also, since I don’t have a piano or keyboard it lets me practice it on my phone. It also gives u a tutorial on how to play and what keys are which D,E,F,G I require this app if u do not have a Paiona or a keyboard or even if u do. It will help u learn brand new songs!! And it will bring u step Bye step. Nothing is bad about this app. That is why I give it a 5 rating ❤️💜💜💜💜🤗
Great app, but I have a few suggestions
by PMA1999 on 2020/05/23 07:17
Hi, as a student I wanted to learn to play piano. During quarantine I decided why not, the app itself is amazing I’m sure you could learn a lot just by playing it once a day. Now you see that’s when the problem comes in. You can only play the academy once a day, and that’s horrible for a student like me during quarantine. I just suggest making the free academy like 10-15 minutes instead of eight, because a lot of that time is just wasted on videos which are pretty long. Also I suggest you rather sponsor somebody but make the academy time bigger. Try to fix some glitches too. Thank you very much
Simply piano is better
by scrappy049 on 2020/08/26 22:04
Listens progress too fast in an awkward way, it doesn’t let you practice repeatedly, so before you know it you will be stuck with complicated notes. So in order to practice it, you have to go back to the same lessons to play the same boring songs, which actually doesn’t didn’t help because your ears and fingers memorize the movement before your eyes do, so you will pass the lesson eventually but, it doesn’t help you with note reading. And each lessons loads way too slow because of unnecessary “shows” such as painfully long cheerings or pauses that come between lessons. So it makes you sick to move on. Only the lesson I feel like I could take was that birds on telephone lines because all the notes seems to be different every time I try, but again, I have to wait for the narrator talking and wait for the birds to land on the stupid telephone lines and it just takes forever. Terrible way to learn piano.
Ok...
by BMXROCKS on 2020/07/05 17:22
I am a kid, and I loved it at first, other than the fact it didn’t ask for my level, and treated me as a beginner, ai mean, I started playing a little before I even turned 5! I just decided to ignore that fact and give it a 4.5, but on Level 3, it just decided it wouldn’t listen anymore!!!😡I was working so hard and having fun with piano and this app and it just stopped listening!!!!! So I thought it was just this level, it’s fine. My rating dropped to a 4 or a 3.5. Then, it totally ruined my progress by saying I needed to buy a premium to keep continuing! So mad, it instantly dropped to a 2 or a one, I think it should ask your level, let you make multiple accounts, and it’s premium should be less expensive and include things like ,or more songs, or answers to questions ,or more accounts, or a zoom teacher or something, learning and skipping lessons should be available to everyone. But they deserve credit, so 1 star.
Might just be a me thing?
by Slimeatory lover on 2020/09/12 16:11
Overall its a decent piano app, though there are a few problems i’ve come across. For example on lesson 10, Left hand introductions, I played the correct notes every time, but it always registered it as the wrong note. I’ve also checked with the online keyboard they provide, and all the notes were correct. I’m not sure if thats just a bug that happened with me, or something. It used to work, but when i got to the Ode To Joy practice, it started happening. I’ve tried going back to old practices and songs, but it always registered wrong. I went back to the video, and it was the correct hand positioning. Im not sure if its just me, or if this is a problem other people experience, but this is one of the major issues i have at come across.
Good, Could be better
by Dashy Ash on 2019/12/17 18:49
I never write reviews but since I’ve been using this app for over a month now I thought I should. What I love about this app is that I have noticed progress in my playing since I started. I only have time for 30 minutes three times a weeks and I surprise myself every time I come back at how much progress I have made. My only criticism is that if I want to practice a specific part that I am struggling with, I have to start at the beginning. I wish you could rewind a few bars or print the sheet music so you could isolate difficult parts of the song you’re learning. Maybe that’s something you guys could look into? Anyway, good app all around. Definitely would recommend it. 👍🏽
It was incredible until...
by fer.maximoff on 2019/07/09 22:07
I read some of the reviews and I was really excited to download this app because the reviewers were saying it was free, I tried other apps and in order to continue with your lessons you needed to pay certain amount of money, and I am one of those persons who can’t pay, so when I saw this app I was completely satisfied, I used the app for about 20 minutes and in lesson number 5, approximately, the app was saying that I needed to pay to continue, so then I realized you guys updated it, and now, again, I’m going to eliminate the app just as I did with other ones, I hope you can make it free again or at least just the lessons, or another idea could be to put adds and unlock videos and lessons with them. Thank you if you read this 💗
Very easy & helpful :)
by emmadenice on 2018/12/20 00:07
This is the first time I've written a review for an app. I really love this one, I've always wanted to learn to play the piano and it takes you step by step from the beginning. You can tell the creators have put a lot of time and live into this app. I especially love that the entire program is currently free, which most apps only give you a lesson or two before making you pay x amount of money a month. I have one complaint about this app. I use the on screen keyboard and it's way too small, it's hard to correctly hit keys without insane accuracy. I do plan on getting a starter keyboard though, since I feel I have a strong understanding of the basics to continue with lessons. Thanks for the great lessons guys 😁😁
Great app but..
by ArthurMom4 on 2020/05/17 04:14
I love this app, it’s one of the most well structured I have seen out of the learning apps. BUT... it’s sad for those who are less fortunate like myself that I am so limited on what I can do without paying. I’m a mother of four trying to finally do something for myself by learning to play piano. This time we are in now with COVID-19 we are stuck inside and I was losing myself. Now more than ever I definitely can’t afford to pay for an app, as it was hard to come up with the money for the keyboard. I understand app development and licensing is expensive, but give those like me a way to earn their way to premium (ads, daily login, advertising, etc) Great job developing this for those who are beginners to piano.
I’m starting to hate it
by anneliece perez on 2019/03/22 17:49
I used to like this app and I’m trying to learn piano. There is just one problem... this app does not ask if you understand or need to go over the lesson again. I know that their is a choice to go back to a lesson but it tells me the notes and that does not help me learn. If the creators of this app could add a feature that the app would ask you if you understand or not so that it’s not so challenging when you move on. I’m really trying to learn but this is the only decent app. So far I only know the right hand notes because the app moves too quickly and does not help you learn piano like it says. I was about to delete the app but I decided to give this one more chance hoping that the creators of the app would see this and add that feature that asks you if you understand or not. Thank You
Awesome app to lean!!♥️
by Pophansanitizer on 2019/01/22 01:32
This is my favorite app to learn piano. I have a piano keyboard and this is my first day learning! I practiced for 5 hours and learned notes, how to play, and much more. I love the idea how this app makes it fun to learn and is free! This app clearly explains everything and can’t wait for new lessons. I would really recommend this app for beginners and intermediate players. I find the piano some what easy to play and learn- since I’ve been playing the violin for about 5 years. I guess since one has experience playing an instrument, it is not as hard learning a new instrument. I love the app and recommend it for others!⭐️
It has potential..
by Steelcty on 2020/01/18 21:40
I have some experience with piano. I have skipped around from app to app trying to find something with good piano lessons. Some apps are great, but cost money, and other are just plain bad. I thought this app was going to be good, since it has a professional introduction and it started off by teaching you two basic notes. However, when I started the first song, the app didn’t pick ANY of the notes I played. It was even worse when it stopped the song to help you play the note. I had to jam the key on my keyboard, and I don’t think that’s good for the keyboard. I don’t know if the problem is with me, the app, my iPad, or the keyboard, but I don’t want to waste my time basically hitting my keyboard. Other then that, this app is pretty great! :)
Nice app for beginners
by 3Thugs on 2019/02/07 04:08
Would have given 5 stars, but have one complaint about the hands on lessons. When going through the exercises it would be very useful to have the ability to pause the music where you are making a mistake or having a problem reading the music. I play several instruments, but have not done much on the bass clef nor having to look at the treble and bass simultaneously. It is extremely frustrating to not be able to stop the scroll of the music so I can clarify the notes and get the rhythm correct. Then when you want to try again you have to start from the very beginning every time. Other than that it is a pretty nice app.
good app but it was better before
by skittlz_kitty1105 on 2020/04/28 22:22
i downloaded this app a while ago and then uninstalled it. a couple of weeks ago, i reinstalled it and found that it wasn’t at all the same. half of the songs in the songbook that i used to be able to play(including every single one of the hard level songs)now have to be paid for. and the price for subscription is insane. some songs like Part of Your World and Thunder i know for a fact were free because i played them frequently. now i have to pay for them. please fix this soon in an update or something. other than this, great app, i have learned so much more than i thought i would and it has really piqued my interest for playing piano.
Better than Simply Piano
by susu the great on 2020/01/25 01:10
When I wanted to learn the keyboard, I downloaded Simply Piano bit it didn’t help me at all, so I moved on to this app and I love it!!! It made music into my life and improved my piano skills and a real teacher that teaches me!! But one tiny problem, you only get 20 minutes for free and it’s kinda not fair because I want to learn and play nonstop but I need to pay for it (well my parents) and but if you think about it... it kinda is fair at the same time because it makes a bookmark and you can play later and start where you were at!! Thanks for reading 😊
3 week review (newbie piano player)
by Tryseem on 2019/11/01 20:42
I really like this app. I am now really learning piano! I do have a few wants with this app though: I can’t tell you how many times I have to pause the song I’m on to learn where my hand should be and try to slow down the songs myself. I wish you could select the tempo of the songs. Also I wish I could just scroll back a few measures and play them over and over again. Even scroll forward through easy measures to get to harder measures. I’m still flustered when playing both hands and the song goes too fast. Like I said I’m new to piano. Sometimes when there is an instructional video it takes forever to buffer too and it’s not my internet trust me we’ve got the best internet we can get and we check the speed regularly. Only this app buffers and it’s annoying. I like how he teaches theory though! Very good and broken down for anyone to learn. I already know treble clef because I also play trumpet but I have to really think on bass clef! All Cars Eat Gas , Good Boys Do Fine Always...
Great app in process
by Vivannas on 2019/01/27 05:33
I’ve been playing around with app for a little over a week and I feel improvement on my skills already. There is of course room for improvement. First it would be good to be able to move more freely around the courses and have additional exercises to work around needed skills. Second, I think the note recognition fails a couple of times, as the note is being played and it marks as wrong, but I’m sure the app will get better as more people use it. Moreover, it would be really good to be able to move around the songs, so maybe be able to restart without having to leave the song and start all over, but go back to work on more difficult areas of the song, and even choose the speed while perfecting a theme. Finally, not sure if this is only my problem, but sometimes I find difficult to read the content, it’s quite small, specially when getting to the two hands level. Other than that I really feel that this app can help people go a long way playing piano.
Just a few complaints- otherwise I loveee it
by booboobeedoo on 2019/04/23 20:30
Honestly I really love the app, however I found at points i would be playing the correct note but it would automatically count me wrong for whatever reason. I also found that I sped through the current 23 lessons pretty quickly and am kind of disappointed to see that I have to wait for the rest. I understand that it’s difficult to produce lessons fast, all I am saying is that maybe add other songs to play by choice, so then we could get the practice and have fun with some of our favorite songs. That’s about all I found wrong, otherwise I love the app and it’s great as a beginner pianist.
the best app that i have use so far
by ChimChim_TaeTae on 2020/06/28 16:36
OMG this is the best app that I have ever used to learn piano. O don’t pay for the app, but since I have a really busy schedule, and sometimes barely play the piano during days, I love that it’s 10 min daily. Sometimes I would always want to learn more piano but the environment of the app is the best. I absolutely love this app. Unlike simply piano (I don’t really like the app) it continues playing until u get it. But simply piano can only limit u to lessons until u pay. I totally recommend this to people who are starting to learn the piano. 😍😍😍 luv it
Great app
by uhalexialol on 2019/02/28 02:03
I am tired my friends taught me little pieces of songs but I really wanted to know I was searching and searching for apps and I decided to try it out so I downloaded it. I soon as it got started I thought very comfortable and they showed me the basics of piano right from the beginning you don’t need anything not even a real piano you don’t need to know anything about Piano you just need yourself and the ability to focus. I definitely recommend and is helping me and if I get something wrong it makes me want to try to do it right. Please get this app it’s amazing!
I love it but...
by Sarah._ on 2019/11/22 00:42
I have tried plenty of piano apps because I am eager to learn another instrument. I already knew a few things prior to this app and it is slightly annoying when all of the next levels are locked and it uses up my daily 15 minutes on things I already know. Also, one of my main problems is that sometimes it doesn’t remember my progress, so I have to start the lesson completely over. This makes it really hard to learn more. But overall, it is a great app and you can still learn without making a payment.
I'm so good at piano!!!🤗
by The Solace Group on 2020/10/17 14:14
This game made me the best piano player in the world so this is the best game ever I wouldn’t have ever been the best piano playerIf I didn’t have this game so therefore this game is the best I love all of the most fun things about it I even get to learn piano it gives you a lesson and it’s fun but I tried to learn piano by myself but that didn’t work So when I saw the ad for this game I was like maybe this will work and then it did so thank you for this game it helps me every single day and oh my piano lessons I get all of them right so thank you and goodbye
Playing on break ok
by 💩💩♻️♻️ on 2020/05/21 18:32
I got this app off a add it is ok I am 11 and I have been playing for 3-5 years and with Corona and moving I haven’t been able to play that often I do know I have bad static so that might be why but I know I am playing the wright notes when it counts me wrong sometimes I make a mistake but most of the time I do not I would have also gave it a 2 star but I consider being a nice girl I also don’t like how it is so delayed and sometimes it counts me wright when I haven’t even hit a note the last thing I do not like is that without paying you can only play for 10min and after you only get to play songs from your song book. To wrap up this is not the best thing but it might help during quarantine
Great! Until the latest update
by Hina D on 2019/06/04 01:05
Before the update everything was free and I actually got to learn a lot of things and I’m a decent pianist because of this app. But here’s the problem in the latest update things weren’t free anymore my progress was there I just couldn’t progress without premium. I chose this app because it was free, but this update really messed things up for me. I don’t have time to get a piano teacher and I don’t have a credit card so I guess for now I can’t play piano. Not a good move. But still a great and very helpful app, for anyone who can buy premium I think it would be worth it!
7yo is teaching himself with Piano Academy
by merjive on 2019/03/08 16:40
My nearly 7yo son expressed an interest in piano when we inherited my family’s old spinet. I found Piano Academy in the App Store, and figured he could try it out before we committed to expensive lessons. He LOVES the app, and he’s making amazing progress working through the levels and trying for three stars. My wife and I are blown away, and can’t believe how much he’s learned with “only” the Piano Academy guide him. I rarely rate apps, let alone leave reviews. Our extremely positive experience has made it worthy of the effort.
Great but needs improvement
by I❤️iPodtouch5 on 2018/12/16 02:37
This app has many features that sets it apart from others and it’s FREE for right now, which I love because I can’t afford subscriptions. However, the microphone on the app isn’t picking up sound from my keyboard (my notes are played correctly) and it’s making it hard for me to pass certain levels. Also, I’m an intermediate piano player and it doesn’t have an option for more experienced players. If you could fix these things, that would be great! Thanks ;)
Good but definitely needs improvement
by Coco_Pichy on 2020/05/25 06:10
This app is cool except for two things that are EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING AND DISAPPOINTING. First of all, before downloading this app I already had a background with piano, so I was planning on skipping the first easy lessons because I already learned what is on them, the problem is YOU CANT SKIP A SONGLE LESSON. Second of all, the note recognition is terrible. I have too many problems with it. I can’t get past a lesson because it is terrible at detecting what note I am playing, therefore the app counts it as wrong, even if it was correctly played. Pleasseee fix these mistakes! Apart from that, the app is great, but these to problem have made me lower the rating of this app to a 2 stars!!
Good, but some problems...
by 1 person of 7 billion on 2018/12/28 07:13
I downloaded this app with high hopes, and lucky for me you don’t have to pay for anything. It’s great teaching, and I know every review says this, but the app is REALLY hard at hearing. Especially the low notes, with I know the low notes tend to be a little quieter, but that doesn’t dismiss the fact that it still doesn’t hear too well. I understand that you could turn you volume up if your piano is electric (mine is) but I worry about disturbing my family members. Other than that, this app is amazing for beginning piano players.
There’s a small bug here
by Walrus( ・∇・) on 2019/04/07 13:23
Sooo... I love this app and all, without it I would be legit lost, but the app’s crashing in the middle of me playing, and lessons I’ve already done just... appears as if I haven’t done it, it’s also happening with the songs, the songs appear 0 stars when I’ve already done them, the app crashed right now, and when I went in again it appeared as if I hadn’t done the training, when I had done the training, the song, and was already in another song, please fix this, it’s driving me crazy. Otherwise it’s an AMAZING app.
Needs feature to override note match
by Joce3003 on 2020/04/24 23:54
I’m not sure if it’s better to have a great feature that doesn’t work well or not have the feature at all. I love the app, but the fact that the note recognition feature doesn’t work well makes it difficult when you’re trying to advance to the next lesson but the app won’t let you because it thinks you got all the notes wrong. Over and over again. There should be a function to turn off the lock that doesn’t allow you to advance unless the app recognizes all the notes correctly, because it doesn’t.

I was in the app but it was AMAZING, but throughout the lessons, it starts getting harder and harder, and it is about to feel like I am having too much pressure, and add extra games if you can, but the app is awesome so please make it a bit simpler. Thank you! and also make more for intermediate songs for BTS such as Dynamite.

It is great it is just they think you know a lot so they give you boss songs and it is a little hard but it is great because I learned a to g for the piano but I don’t like that you have to pay because I only have $19.53 because I am a kid but I am going to get more money.
Upgrade the app
by iphoneappchecker2020 on 2020/09/14 22:55
I would appreciate if you would make it listen to a piano also.
Might just be a me thing?
by Slimeatory lover on 2020/09/12 16:11
Overall its a decent piano app, though there are a few problems i’ve come across. For example on lesson 10, Left hand introductions, I played the correct notes every time, but it always registered it as the wrong note. I’ve also checked with the online keyboard they provide, and all the notes were correct. I’m not sure if thats just a bug that happened with me, or something. It used to work, but when i got to the Ode To Joy practice, it started happening. I’ve tried going back to old practices and songs, but it always registered wrong. I went back to the video, and it was the correct hand positioning. Im not sure if its just me, or if this is a problem other people experience, but this is one of the major issues i have at come across.
SERIOUSLY

by pianolover100 on 2020/08/27 19:37
I would totally recommend this app to any one with little or none piano experience. There’s plenty of songs to choose from and with the membership you can unlock all the songs which I thing is so worth you’re money.
Simply piano is better
by scrappy049 on 2020/08/26 22:04
Listens progress too fast in an awkward way, it doesn’t let you practice repeatedly, so before you know it you will be stuck with complicated notes. So in order to practice it, you have to go back to the same lessons to play the same boring songs, which actually doesn’t didn’t help because your ears and fingers memorize the movement before your eyes do, so you will pass the lesson eventually but, it doesn’t help you with note reading. And each lessons loads way too slow because of unnecessary “shows” such as painfully long cheerings or pauses that come between lessons. So it makes you sick to move on. Only the lesson I feel like I could take was that birds on telephone lines because all the notes seems to be different every time I try, but again, I have to wait for the narrator talking and wait for the birds to land on the stupid telephone lines and it just takes forever. Terrible way to learn piano.

Music sheet note
by pourdad on 2020/08/23 19:40
Hello Piano Academy Team First I must thanks for your app. Very very good in UX section. Learning curve progress it’s very good but I have one important notice : I thing you must add section for showing all music played sheet note. Because when I’m habit with your music note with animation and play note with movement animation , Maybe after months I can’t play note from sheet because I’m habit with animation. You can add section for example music sheet note course 1 and I can see all music played sheet note and practice. These two things ( playing note with animation movement and play from sheets) together , Strengthen the students. Again congratulate to your team for creating this app. Best regards
NO

This App is a SCAM
by ScoHaz on 2020/08/22 14:30
My original iPad died. I asked this company to restore my subscription status of the app I pay $119 a year for. I heard nothing back, so I asked for a refund. I also heard nothing back on that request. Apple offers no help. This operation is pure scam. Buy at your own risk.
WARNING! 1 week purchase RENEWS Automatically !!!

Ugh - why would anyone purchase one week for 7.99 with automatic renewal in 1 week if there is a 1 month option for 15.99 - one renewal costs me MORE FOR TWO WEEKS than the 1 month option !!! I hope you enjoy the bad karma of stealing my money.

BEST APP EVER

The good and the bad (update)
by Pianistalove4453 on 2020/08/13 22:40
So let’s start with good. This app has been great for me! I’ve been wanting to play piano for awhile but for some reason I have never been able to. I got a piano now and I’ve done some homework. Learned how it works, where the notes are, what the pedals are for, etc. Well I couldn’t find a teacher (especially since the pandemic) so I settled for an app. A friend suggested this app and they say a lot of good things about it. He plays amazing and I hope to someday be in his level. So far, this app has taught me so much! I like the choices of songs and it pretty fun. Now the things that kinda annoys me is the note recognition. Its actually very annoying having the app tell you the notes are wrong even after checking finger position and everything. I would love some help or maybe someone to tell me what to do. Idk if it’s my iPad, the piano or the app. Might be the app, cause then why would I write this. Anyway I would very much appreciate it if someone would help. Thank you have a nice day ☺️. Update: Noooo now it won’t recognize ANY notes while playing in the songbook 😭. HELP WHY WONT IT WORK. ITS NOT MY IPAD ITS NEW AND SO IS THE PIANO. There go your stars...

Best app but still needs improvement
by OliviaRoyal on 2020/08/09 20:19
This is the best piano teaching app I have tried, and the one with the most content for free users. However, the sheet music for the songs needs to be available. Practicing complicated songs one thousand times in a row on the songbook is awful. This could be easily fixed with the sheet music available for practicing.
Still some problems, but mostly fine

Good content/design, poor acoustic note recognition
by Collin Luke on 2020/08/05 18:09
I like the app content, layout, and teaching methodologies but the acoustic note recognition is wanting. It is often wrong and requires I play way too loud to get any sort of accuracy; this alone caused me to cancel my subscription. I often have to play the notes early and make my play off-beat to get them to be recognized. I know an expert app developer if you guys need some help.

Great app to learn to play the piano for beginners, the pricing is great. My problem is lesson 10 because it doesn’t pick up the keys even if I play them, it won’t let me move on because it keeps saying that I am not playing the keys when I am.

Doesn’t hear my piano anymore
by les805 on 2020/08/03 17:13
We have used this app for several months now and have loved it. Now it no longer “hears” our piano. What’s changed in the app and why? Very disappointed especially for my daughter who has really enjoyed playing during this a Covid time.
Love this app

I just downloaded the app and played maybe 2 tutorials had a bit of trouble cause it wouldn’t hear the note every now an then. I make sure the room is as quiet as it can be turn my keyboard all the way up doesn’t hear a single note I’m playing so I’m sitting there jamming a note for 5 minutes. Great Marketing horrible app

New to piano and love it but I have a suggestion
by madelinedg on 2020/07/22 21:22
First off let me say you really have to use headphones otherwise it doesn’t pick up that you’re playing the right notes. Secondly it’s amazing as a beginner to piano and I would much rather pay $16/mo than pay for formal lessons. My suggestion is that in addition to many people who ask to be able to see full sheet music, especially since we’re paying for this app that should be a given, but I would also like the ability to just go over a portion of the song. Many times I’m struggling with one part which is in the middle or the end of the song but I have to restart the entire song to work on it and have to play through things I feel comfortable with when really I just want to go over the part I’m finding more challenging. Otherwise great app and I’m really enjoying learning piano! As a side note I already play guitar and have for many years and have been singing all my life so music isn’t new for me but when it comes to piano I’m a total noob!

by RealBG1 on 2020/07/21 17:51
I love this app but I need a special thing that connects to the piano because if I do not have that it dose not hear me at all. It also makes it so much more difficult than having a real teacher because it dose not take you throw every step.But I do like it for it is the best piano app than all the other ones.

Great piano learning app
by Duc.Rider on 2019/01/02 15:57
Update: for those having note recognition issues, use headphones. You can still hear the piano but the accompaniment music doesn't interfere with the microphones picking up played piano notes. Had zero issues with software hearing notes this way. I’m a 53 yr old newbie to piano (I play tuba but doesn’t fit well with other family instruments). I’ve dinked around with piano through the years but want to play cord pads mainly on keyboard with family that plays piano or guitar. I need to get some note learning and muscle memory working in my favor to be something other than an embarrassment. I have a long road ahead but I’m having fun blasting through the lessens. At first it felt a bit kid oriented however that soon changed after the first few lessens. Love that the app works with MIDI - I’m practicing at midnight with headphones! I’d never be able to learn on a regular piano with my and my family’s schedule. Thank you for including MIDI! My goal is to play a few (up to six) songs with family after one year for church. My goal is to not miss more than 30 days out of a year of practice. I’m excited to see where this app will take me!! So far it’s about right, however it’s wise to go ever some songs several times before moving on, which you can do by pressing the back button before the practice song ends (saves a little time from having to go through the reward screen. I’ll update my review further after more lessens are completed.
Cool app, needs improvement
by Blondebomber626 on 2020/03/14 23:28
I pay for this app and it’s not cheap! I probably won’t renew because there are some things that need to be improved. For instance, it reads the notes incorrectly much of the time so it would be nice to have a function in the settings where instead of using my microphone, the app connects with my digital piano through bluetooth and reads the notes that I’m actually pressing (this way I can also leave my piano volume down if I choose). Also, if I am paying for the premium version of this app, I should have access to full sheet music. You cannot repeatedly practice the harder pieces as scrolling notes. You just can’t. Give me sheet music or give me the ability to scroll through the upcoming notes in the pause screen. Lastly, I will have completed an entire lesson section and the next day it shows incomplete because somehow it doesn’t register that I’ve already watched the lesson video? It’s not that big of a deal because I can still progress forward, but again if I am paying so much for the app I expect it to work. I’m sure that small problem can be fixed with a simple update though! Overall, the app has certainly been helpful in sight reading practice and teaching me new songs, and even some stuff my piano teacher glosses over :-) I enjoy the songbook portion too.
Good but...
by sistersagmoon on 2020/05/01 23:56
I’ve only been using this a little over a week, and am learning piano for the first time, but have played other instruments as a child so the theory isn’t completely new, HOWEVER, I am almost done with the first level (12 or so lessons) and the practice songs in the songbook are a bit frustrating. They teach you a four-count and the symbol for a one beat pause, but a lot of the songs have half-beats and what I assume are half-beat pause symbols, and you just have to figure out how to count that while still learning the notes and hand placement and it is really becoming frustrating. I am having a hard time counting some beats bc they are like 2.5 or 3.5 but it’s hard to tell from the way it’s displayed and there’s no one to ask. I don’t understand why they would throw all that at us without instructing us first. Other than that I’ve enjoyed the app, and like that you can use a keyboard in the app before laying out several hundred for a decent keyboard, but you can really only go so far with the app keyboard (forget two hands!). The developer also seems open to feedback and implements the suggestions, which is good.
Great for beginners - Tedious for others
by lesbian.ham on 2018/12/14 21:57
It’s great for beginners! There’s just two things I’m not a fan of. When I first downloaded this app, I didn’t have a real keyboard available to me, so I had to use the virtual one in the app. The problem is the keys are smaller than my fingers, so it’s hard to make sure you hit them perfectly. I found that hitting them slightly to the side either wasn’t recognized, or was recognized as the note next to the correct key. But obviously, this will not be a problem for those who have a physical piano/keyboard available to them. Another criticism that I have is that you have to unlock everything starting from the very beginning. That’s great for beginners, and I understand that’s who this is meant for. But it would be nice for those who already know a little bit, or those who play other instruments and already know what clef and a staff are to be able to start at their current skill level and skip what they’ve already learned elsewhere. Though with that said, it seems that the lessons are fairly quick, so it’s not the end of the world. It’s just an annoyance for those who aren’t complete beginners who have no musical knowledge under their belt, going into this.
Great at first
by vevexus on 2020/01/13 17:54
I started using this app almost a month ago with absolutely zero experience. It has been fantastic learning from square one with a gamified experience that gradually gets more like reading real sheet music as you progress. I subscribed after a few hours and had no regrets until recently. I really only have one gripe - that you cannot redo certain sections of the songs. I am forced to pause - restart and wait for the section I am working on to come up. If I am lucky the section fits on one screen and I can pause it and just work on it while paused or take a picture with my phone. It is especially frustrating when the instructor has a small speech at the beginning, forcing you to hear his spiel over and over again before the music even starts scrolling. All I want to do is rewind but I cannot. Early on I mastered the songs fast enough to not care so much but it takes longer and longer to master the songs as they get longer and more complex which means restarting a lot more. I cannot continue so inefficiently... I really feel invested in the app (not just monetarily) and want to use it.. but I’m done and moving to flowkey which lets you loop any section you want to work on.
My piano skills have improved greatly!
by itsmedcj on 2019/11/08 02:45
I am in my 30s and have always had the desire to play piano. I have tried several attempts throughout the years but just couldn’t stick with it. However after doing this app for about two months now, I am playing Music in ways I thought I never could. I really appreciate this app and I’m so thankful for it. One suggestion I have is if we could see the full sheet music so that way we can practice on the areas that we may have problems on instead of having to start the whole song completely over and wait until we get to that part. That’s a little annoying. Also I’m not into secular music. I enjoy learning with the classical pieces much better. But I know you can’t please everyone with the music selections LOL. I will also email my suggestions as the app developer has suggested because I really want to stick with this app to improve my piano skills it has help me tremendously.
The good and the bad (update)
by Pianistalove4453 on 2020/08/13 22:40

It was a lot better months ago
by BlueFurryAnimals on 2020/03/16 20:50
I first got this app around 6 or 7 months ago when I first decided to learn piano. It was great then and you could play many songs for free and whatever. But you could only go so far in the lessons before they wanted you to subscribe. Then I stopped playing for awhile till I checked in around 2 months ago, this is where everything went downhill. I came back to app after realizing how much I missed it 2 months ago like I had said. I quickly realized that almost every song was marked only for people who subscribed. Every single song I liked I could no longer play. I’m pretty Itsy Bistsy Spider was marked for people who subscribed as well. It’s terrible. I understand that they as a company need to make money somehow but I encourage that a subscription isn’t the best way to do it, especially if the plans aren’t that affordable for everyone. So listen to my idea, people who want to play a song have to watch an add per song. And like a couple ads at a time to unlock a lesson. This way the company can still make money. If someone is really truly fed up with all the ads they have to watch then they can pay for a subscription or something.
Best app ever!
by queen of kindness2011 on 2019/12/27 01:00
This is the best app ever! It’s so good to learn with if your thinking about learning piano this is the app for you. I was thinking like I really want to learn piano. I found one app already but since I didn’t have it on my mom’s iPad I was trying to reload it. So I searched the app and this app popped up along with the app I was looking for. So i was looking at the reviews they were all good and I’m like why not give it a try I downloaded it and loved it. As soon as it downloaded I started playing songs I saw the intro and watched it. And I’m like cool a real piano teacher. As soon as I started I got hooked playing song after song looking for my favorite songs. I told my dad this is cool. I created an account so he could get my progress. I kept playing I totally love it! thank you so much. It’s a great app I am gonna practice a lot now. If you wanna learn piano download this app please!
best piano app!
by jaylaxxx on 2019/01/21 00:31
okay to start this off, i don’t usually write reviews but i thought that this really just deserved one. i just want to say this app is so well created. if you had trouble finding an irl teacher, or piano app, i assure you this is the one. it would help to have prior music experience, especially when it comes to reading notes. but all is well, because they tell you every note, and breaks everything down into little videos, quizzes, games and playing tests! it’s everything you’ve ever wanted! best part is, the app listens to you play to check for accuracy, i don’t know what else anyone would want. the only downside i’d prolly have to say is that sometimes the app says the note is wrong/right when it actually isn’t. but most of the time it’s all good! anyway i hope this helps you download the app, ALSO last thing, everything is FREE! xx
Powerful Tool
by RMohney on 2019/02/01 01:29
This app is simply awesome!!! I have never played or studied music before but have always wanted to learn to play the piano. Looking for different apps led me here! So far, this app has been challenging, entertaining, and educational. It’s setup in a way that teaches you the basics of music while pushing you to practice your skills on a keyboard or piano. I will admit... having access to a keyboard or piano is extremely better and will give you more out of this experience. It’s pretty cool too cause it ends up teaching you interactively with your phone or tablet through the microphone and speaker. If you have played any sort of rock band or guitar hero on a video game console you have an advantage! It’s like the rock band of real life! Thanks for the app and for the opportunity to use it for free. I look forward to practicing and working on my skills!
It’s changed, and I don’t like it.
by Waffles is my dog and cute🐶 on 2019/06/27 21:25
Piano Academy has changed because of the Premium Pack. I cannot learn ANYTHING!!! I want to know, can you guys at least leave SOME lessons without premium? This is really bothering me and I don’t want premium in Piano Academy. Actually, I would be FINE if you left premium for the SONGS, but soooo NOT the lessons. I was learning piano finely, until the Premium pack came. Please, please, PLEASE, take the Premium Pack off on the lessons. I would take my time to write this review. This is how you know: my cousin is here and she’s kinda bored, but Piano Academy is important to me, and her. Please, take my advice. A lot of people started disliking this app. I’m sorry, but I might be one of those people, because this is just (sorry, but) kinda annoying that I can’t play ANY lessons. Please, make this a better piano learning app. After all, it was the GREATEST piano app ever, but now it has changed. Sorry. One of your app customers, Me😂😅😜

by 👁❤️🏀 on 2020/05/19 15:18
I liked the app at first and I liked it. I had played piano before, but because of the coronavirus, my lessons got cancelled. So I have been looking for a app to teach me. I used to have simply piano, but then I quit and when I asked my mom to pay for it again, she said it took away too much of her money. So I have been on a quest to find another piano app. I saw ads for all different piano apps, and they all wanted me to pay money to learn, so I tried this one. I was playing pretty good, but it was all beginner stuff that i had already played, and even though I told the app I have played before, I gave me easy things. When I got to the song perfect, I was about to play the first note C. So I played a C and it paused. It was not connecting. I was trying to play a C and it wouldn’t work. I tried so many times and it wouldn’t work. The app is also constantly trying to make me pay for it, even though I keep saying no. I just downloaded this app, and I am now about to delete it. I highly recommend no one to use this app.
Omg I love this app
by GoUSA2012!! on 2018/12/16 19:34
I tried other Piano apps (like that terrible Joy one) and this one is awesome! The lessons are simple, ordered well, and focused on getting you to play songs you know as quickly as possible, even when you only play 3 notes. The app works great—no awkward “practice” modes when you don’t get things perfectly right. You just replay the songs over again as many times as you need. It’s easy to navigate so that both my son and I can go at our own paces. (Although I just put this on his iPad so he’ll stop using mine.) I’m addicted to this app, and super excited about learning piano this way. And it’s free, which is amazing. I sound like I got paid to write this (not true), and I would totally pay for this app.
Good Before Update
by Athena9306 on 2019/03/15 21:02
All the lessons are simple and easy to understand and I recommend it to any beginner who is struggling to learn. I stopped practicing for awhile because I was busy with other things. When I came back to start on my lessons again, I saw it has to be updated. So I did. And I regret it. I never had any problems with this app until now. It's extremely frustrating because the app doesn't read the notes correctly! When you press a key it's supossed to respond and correct or wrong. Now, it's not reading any of the keys I'm pressing even though it's correct. It made me upset thinking I was messing up and I was disappointed in myself then to come to a realization that i'm not messing up and it's Piano Academy. It's disappointing because I loved this app and I wanted to continue learning how to become a pianist. It hasn't given me problems until now. This was the only app that I could find that wouldn't charge me 100$ to continue my lessons. I was so happy when I found it. Now, I'm having problems. I don't want top have to look for another app. I'm not in school so I can't get lessons there, I don't know how to self teach myself to play, and I don't have the money to pay for extra lessons. I'm struggling as it is. Hopefully this isn't bothersome. I have low self esteem and anxiety and playing made me happy, now I just want to sleep my disappointment off. Thank you anyway
Great! But needs one main improvement
by RED*345 on 2019/02/13 00:10
I just started learning piano, and it’s been great using this app! I love how I’ve learned music theory along with the general piano, it’s exactly what I’d been looking for. However, the app could use one main improvement: When learning new songs for lessons, it would be helpful to be able to change the speed of the song from slower to full speed. That way, one could practice the song at a slower pace and make their way up to full speed. I know the songs in lessons have “slower pace” practice before the full pace song, but even that’s too fast sometimes for a very beginner. It’d be nice to determine the speed by yourself (this goes for both songs AND practice exercises)- maybe have a sliding bar for speed so the student can manually change the pace of the song. Otherwise, this is a great app!
GREAT app with one very annoying bug
by I aM a LoAf oF bReAd on 2020/01/29 01:03
This app is great. I came to this app thinking there was no other app that can teach you in a fun way. But I got to the part where you start playing with your left hand. There is nothing wrong with how they are teaching you but sometimes I would play a key exactly when I am supposed to and on the the exact note but it would still say its wrong and I have to do the song over again because I got zero stars. Now I do not have a real piano. I have a electric piano with only 43 notes(its a Casio SA-76) so it does not sound like a real a grand piano but it is extremely close to the actually sound. Just with alot less bass. So I reccomend this app if you have ether a real piano or a very good sounding electronic piano but if you have something like me then you probably will have some trouble.
Needs work but not horrible

I think this app has potential. Nice flow with videos and progressive lessons. But it can be frustrating at times. The biggest flaw is it being too fast for a beginner...once you reach intervals and using both hands. The problem I have is you have these training parts for songs that you can’t pause, or slow down and see what you keep missing. Instead you fight through it then redo it over and over again. Then once you feel good about that and move on to the actual song they throw in new notes and intervals you haven’t practiced for that song at full speed. Simply Piano does a much better job at training you on the parts for the “full song” you will play. If you miss too many notes it will rewind and play that section over for you. If you keep missing, it will take you into a practice mode that is slowed down and will pause on a missed note until you get it right. You can also pick the speed of the song...100%, 80% or 60%...which is incredibly helpful. The other problem is it doesn’t recognize every note you hit. So about 20% of correct notes and timing are not recognized and counts as a missed note. Like I said it has potential...and it is free compared to $120 annually with Simply Piano.
Awesome App!! Works Perfectly!!
by jazmmine on 2020/03/29 19:07
I love this app. This app lets me play any song i like. I love how it stops and lets u catch up to the notes so u can learn little by little. I also love that u can change to Begginer, intermediated , or advanced once u go to Intermediate it lets u do the song with Remebering the notes!!! It’s awesome I love this piano app!! It works better than any other app. Also, since I don’t have a piano or keyboard it lets me practice it on my phone. It also gives u a tutorial on how to play and what keys are which D,E,F,G I require this app if u do not have a Paiona or a keyboard or even if u do. It will help u learn brand new songs!! And it will bring u step Bye step. Nothing is bad about this app. That is why I give it a 5 rating ❤️💜💜💜💜🤗
Great app, but I have a few suggestions
by PMA1999 on 2020/05/23 07:17
Hi, as a student I wanted to learn to play piano. During quarantine I decided why not, the app itself is amazing I’m sure you could learn a lot just by playing it once a day. Now you see that’s when the problem comes in. You can only play the academy once a day, and that’s horrible for a student like me during quarantine. I just suggest making the free academy like 10-15 minutes instead of eight, because a lot of that time is just wasted on videos which are pretty long. Also I suggest you rather sponsor somebody but make the academy time bigger. Try to fix some glitches too. Thank you very much
Simply piano is better
by scrappy049 on 2020/08/26 22:04
Listens progress too fast in an awkward way, it doesn’t let you practice repeatedly, so before you know it you will be stuck with complicated notes. So in order to practice it, you have to go back to the same lessons to play the same boring songs, which actually doesn’t didn’t help because your ears and fingers memorize the movement before your eyes do, so you will pass the lesson eventually but, it doesn’t help you with note reading. And each lessons loads way too slow because of unnecessary “shows” such as painfully long cheerings or pauses that come between lessons. So it makes you sick to move on. Only the lesson I feel like I could take was that birds on telephone lines because all the notes seems to be different every time I try, but again, I have to wait for the narrator talking and wait for the birds to land on the stupid telephone lines and it just takes forever. Terrible way to learn piano.
Ok...
by BMXROCKS on 2020/07/05 17:22
I am a kid, and I loved it at first, other than the fact it didn’t ask for my level, and treated me as a beginner, ai mean, I started playing a little before I even turned 5! I just decided to ignore that fact and give it a 4.5, but on Level 3, it just decided it wouldn’t listen anymore!!!😡I was working so hard and having fun with piano and this app and it just stopped listening!!!!! So I thought it was just this level, it’s fine. My rating dropped to a 4 or a 3.5. Then, it totally ruined my progress by saying I needed to buy a premium to keep continuing! So mad, it instantly dropped to a 2 or a one, I think it should ask your level, let you make multiple accounts, and it’s premium should be less expensive and include things like ,or more songs, or answers to questions ,or more accounts, or a zoom teacher or something, learning and skipping lessons should be available to everyone. But they deserve credit, so 1 star.
Might just be a me thing?
by Slimeatory lover on 2020/09/12 16:11
Overall its a decent piano app, though there are a few problems i’ve come across. For example on lesson 10, Left hand introductions, I played the correct notes every time, but it always registered it as the wrong note. I’ve also checked with the online keyboard they provide, and all the notes were correct. I’m not sure if thats just a bug that happened with me, or something. It used to work, but when i got to the Ode To Joy practice, it started happening. I’ve tried going back to old practices and songs, but it always registered wrong. I went back to the video, and it was the correct hand positioning. Im not sure if its just me, or if this is a problem other people experience, but this is one of the major issues i have at come across.
Good, Could be better
by Dashy Ash on 2019/12/17 18:49
I never write reviews but since I’ve been using this app for over a month now I thought I should. What I love about this app is that I have noticed progress in my playing since I started. I only have time for 30 minutes three times a weeks and I surprise myself every time I come back at how much progress I have made. My only criticism is that if I want to practice a specific part that I am struggling with, I have to start at the beginning. I wish you could rewind a few bars or print the sheet music so you could isolate difficult parts of the song you’re learning. Maybe that’s something you guys could look into? Anyway, good app all around. Definitely would recommend it. 👍🏽
It was incredible until...
by fer.maximoff on 2019/07/09 22:07
I read some of the reviews and I was really excited to download this app because the reviewers were saying it was free, I tried other apps and in order to continue with your lessons you needed to pay certain amount of money, and I am one of those persons who can’t pay, so when I saw this app I was completely satisfied, I used the app for about 20 minutes and in lesson number 5, approximately, the app was saying that I needed to pay to continue, so then I realized you guys updated it, and now, again, I’m going to eliminate the app just as I did with other ones, I hope you can make it free again or at least just the lessons, or another idea could be to put adds and unlock videos and lessons with them. Thank you if you read this 💗
Very easy & helpful :)
by emmadenice on 2018/12/20 00:07
This is the first time I've written a review for an app. I really love this one, I've always wanted to learn to play the piano and it takes you step by step from the beginning. You can tell the creators have put a lot of time and live into this app. I especially love that the entire program is currently free, which most apps only give you a lesson or two before making you pay x amount of money a month. I have one complaint about this app. I use the on screen keyboard and it's way too small, it's hard to correctly hit keys without insane accuracy. I do plan on getting a starter keyboard though, since I feel I have a strong understanding of the basics to continue with lessons. Thanks for the great lessons guys 😁😁
Great app but..
by ArthurMom4 on 2020/05/17 04:14
I love this app, it’s one of the most well structured I have seen out of the learning apps. BUT... it’s sad for those who are less fortunate like myself that I am so limited on what I can do without paying. I’m a mother of four trying to finally do something for myself by learning to play piano. This time we are in now with COVID-19 we are stuck inside and I was losing myself. Now more than ever I definitely can’t afford to pay for an app, as it was hard to come up with the money for the keyboard. I understand app development and licensing is expensive, but give those like me a way to earn their way to premium (ads, daily login, advertising, etc) Great job developing this for those who are beginners to piano.
I’m starting to hate it
by anneliece perez on 2019/03/22 17:49
I used to like this app and I’m trying to learn piano. There is just one problem... this app does not ask if you understand or need to go over the lesson again. I know that their is a choice to go back to a lesson but it tells me the notes and that does not help me learn. If the creators of this app could add a feature that the app would ask you if you understand or not so that it’s not so challenging when you move on. I’m really trying to learn but this is the only decent app. So far I only know the right hand notes because the app moves too quickly and does not help you learn piano like it says. I was about to delete the app but I decided to give this one more chance hoping that the creators of the app would see this and add that feature that asks you if you understand or not. Thank You
Awesome app to lean!!♥️
by Pophansanitizer on 2019/01/22 01:32
This is my favorite app to learn piano. I have a piano keyboard and this is my first day learning! I practiced for 5 hours and learned notes, how to play, and much more. I love the idea how this app makes it fun to learn and is free! This app clearly explains everything and can’t wait for new lessons. I would really recommend this app for beginners and intermediate players. I find the piano some what easy to play and learn- since I’ve been playing the violin for about 5 years. I guess since one has experience playing an instrument, it is not as hard learning a new instrument. I love the app and recommend it for others!⭐️
It has potential..
by Steelcty on 2020/01/18 21:40
I have some experience with piano. I have skipped around from app to app trying to find something with good piano lessons. Some apps are great, but cost money, and other are just plain bad. I thought this app was going to be good, since it has a professional introduction and it started off by teaching you two basic notes. However, when I started the first song, the app didn’t pick ANY of the notes I played. It was even worse when it stopped the song to help you play the note. I had to jam the key on my keyboard, and I don’t think that’s good for the keyboard. I don’t know if the problem is with me, the app, my iPad, or the keyboard, but I don’t want to waste my time basically hitting my keyboard. Other then that, this app is pretty great! :)
Nice app for beginners
by 3Thugs on 2019/02/07 04:08
Would have given 5 stars, but have one complaint about the hands on lessons. When going through the exercises it would be very useful to have the ability to pause the music where you are making a mistake or having a problem reading the music. I play several instruments, but have not done much on the bass clef nor having to look at the treble and bass simultaneously. It is extremely frustrating to not be able to stop the scroll of the music so I can clarify the notes and get the rhythm correct. Then when you want to try again you have to start from the very beginning every time. Other than that it is a pretty nice app.
good app but it was better before
by skittlz_kitty1105 on 2020/04/28 22:22
i downloaded this app a while ago and then uninstalled it. a couple of weeks ago, i reinstalled it and found that it wasn’t at all the same. half of the songs in the songbook that i used to be able to play(including every single one of the hard level songs)now have to be paid for. and the price for subscription is insane. some songs like Part of Your World and Thunder i know for a fact were free because i played them frequently. now i have to pay for them. please fix this soon in an update or something. other than this, great app, i have learned so much more than i thought i would and it has really piqued my interest for playing piano.
Better than Simply Piano
by susu the great on 2020/01/25 01:10
When I wanted to learn the keyboard, I downloaded Simply Piano bit it didn’t help me at all, so I moved on to this app and I love it!!! It made music into my life and improved my piano skills and a real teacher that teaches me!! But one tiny problem, you only get 20 minutes for free and it’s kinda not fair because I want to learn and play nonstop but I need to pay for it (well my parents) and but if you think about it... it kinda is fair at the same time because it makes a bookmark and you can play later and start where you were at!! Thanks for reading 😊
3 week review (newbie piano player)
by Tryseem on 2019/11/01 20:42
I really like this app. I am now really learning piano! I do have a few wants with this app though: I can’t tell you how many times I have to pause the song I’m on to learn where my hand should be and try to slow down the songs myself. I wish you could select the tempo of the songs. Also I wish I could just scroll back a few measures and play them over and over again. Even scroll forward through easy measures to get to harder measures. I’m still flustered when playing both hands and the song goes too fast. Like I said I’m new to piano. Sometimes when there is an instructional video it takes forever to buffer too and it’s not my internet trust me we’ve got the best internet we can get and we check the speed regularly. Only this app buffers and it’s annoying. I like how he teaches theory though! Very good and broken down for anyone to learn. I already know treble clef because I also play trumpet but I have to really think on bass clef! All Cars Eat Gas , Good Boys Do Fine Always...
Great app in process
by Vivannas on 2019/01/27 05:33
I’ve been playing around with app for a little over a week and I feel improvement on my skills already. There is of course room for improvement. First it would be good to be able to move more freely around the courses and have additional exercises to work around needed skills. Second, I think the note recognition fails a couple of times, as the note is being played and it marks as wrong, but I’m sure the app will get better as more people use it. Moreover, it would be really good to be able to move around the songs, so maybe be able to restart without having to leave the song and start all over, but go back to work on more difficult areas of the song, and even choose the speed while perfecting a theme. Finally, not sure if this is only my problem, but sometimes I find difficult to read the content, it’s quite small, specially when getting to the two hands level. Other than that I really feel that this app can help people go a long way playing piano.
Just a few complaints- otherwise I loveee it
by booboobeedoo on 2019/04/23 20:30
Honestly I really love the app, however I found at points i would be playing the correct note but it would automatically count me wrong for whatever reason. I also found that I sped through the current 23 lessons pretty quickly and am kind of disappointed to see that I have to wait for the rest. I understand that it’s difficult to produce lessons fast, all I am saying is that maybe add other songs to play by choice, so then we could get the practice and have fun with some of our favorite songs. That’s about all I found wrong, otherwise I love the app and it’s great as a beginner pianist.
the best app that i have use so far
by ChimChim_TaeTae on 2020/06/28 16:36
OMG this is the best app that I have ever used to learn piano. O don’t pay for the app, but since I have a really busy schedule, and sometimes barely play the piano during days, I love that it’s 10 min daily. Sometimes I would always want to learn more piano but the environment of the app is the best. I absolutely love this app. Unlike simply piano (I don’t really like the app) it continues playing until u get it. But simply piano can only limit u to lessons until u pay. I totally recommend this to people who are starting to learn the piano. 😍😍😍 luv it
Great app
by uhalexialol on 2019/02/28 02:03
I am tired my friends taught me little pieces of songs but I really wanted to know I was searching and searching for apps and I decided to try it out so I downloaded it. I soon as it got started I thought very comfortable and they showed me the basics of piano right from the beginning you don’t need anything not even a real piano you don’t need to know anything about Piano you just need yourself and the ability to focus. I definitely recommend and is helping me and if I get something wrong it makes me want to try to do it right. Please get this app it’s amazing!
I love it but...
by Sarah._ on 2019/11/22 00:42
I have tried plenty of piano apps because I am eager to learn another instrument. I already knew a few things prior to this app and it is slightly annoying when all of the next levels are locked and it uses up my daily 15 minutes on things I already know. Also, one of my main problems is that sometimes it doesn’t remember my progress, so I have to start the lesson completely over. This makes it really hard to learn more. But overall, it is a great app and you can still learn without making a payment.
I'm so good at piano!!!🤗
by The Solace Group on 2020/10/17 14:14
This game made me the best piano player in the world so this is the best game ever I wouldn’t have ever been the best piano playerIf I didn’t have this game so therefore this game is the best I love all of the most fun things about it I even get to learn piano it gives you a lesson and it’s fun but I tried to learn piano by myself but that didn’t work So when I saw the ad for this game I was like maybe this will work and then it did so thank you for this game it helps me every single day and oh my piano lessons I get all of them right so thank you and goodbye
Playing on break ok
by 💩💩♻️♻️ on 2020/05/21 18:32
I got this app off a add it is ok I am 11 and I have been playing for 3-5 years and with Corona and moving I haven’t been able to play that often I do know I have bad static so that might be why but I know I am playing the wright notes when it counts me wrong sometimes I make a mistake but most of the time I do not I would have also gave it a 2 star but I consider being a nice girl I also don’t like how it is so delayed and sometimes it counts me wright when I haven’t even hit a note the last thing I do not like is that without paying you can only play for 10min and after you only get to play songs from your song book. To wrap up this is not the best thing but it might help during quarantine
Great! Until the latest update
by Hina D on 2019/06/04 01:05
Before the update everything was free and I actually got to learn a lot of things and I’m a decent pianist because of this app. But here’s the problem in the latest update things weren’t free anymore my progress was there I just couldn’t progress without premium. I chose this app because it was free, but this update really messed things up for me. I don’t have time to get a piano teacher and I don’t have a credit card so I guess for now I can’t play piano. Not a good move. But still a great and very helpful app, for anyone who can buy premium I think it would be worth it!
7yo is teaching himself with Piano Academy
by merjive on 2019/03/08 16:40
My nearly 7yo son expressed an interest in piano when we inherited my family’s old spinet. I found Piano Academy in the App Store, and figured he could try it out before we committed to expensive lessons. He LOVES the app, and he’s making amazing progress working through the levels and trying for three stars. My wife and I are blown away, and can’t believe how much he’s learned with “only” the Piano Academy guide him. I rarely rate apps, let alone leave reviews. Our extremely positive experience has made it worthy of the effort.
Great but needs improvement
by I❤️iPodtouch5 on 2018/12/16 02:37
This app has many features that sets it apart from others and it’s FREE for right now, which I love because I can’t afford subscriptions. However, the microphone on the app isn’t picking up sound from my keyboard (my notes are played correctly) and it’s making it hard for me to pass certain levels. Also, I’m an intermediate piano player and it doesn’t have an option for more experienced players. If you could fix these things, that would be great! Thanks ;)
Good but definitely needs improvement
by Coco_Pichy on 2020/05/25 06:10
This app is cool except for two things that are EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING AND DISAPPOINTING. First of all, before downloading this app I already had a background with piano, so I was planning on skipping the first easy lessons because I already learned what is on them, the problem is YOU CANT SKIP A SONGLE LESSON. Second of all, the note recognition is terrible. I have too many problems with it. I can’t get past a lesson because it is terrible at detecting what note I am playing, therefore the app counts it as wrong, even if it was correctly played. Pleasseee fix these mistakes! Apart from that, the app is great, but these to problem have made me lower the rating of this app to a 2 stars!!
Good, but some problems...
by 1 person of 7 billion on 2018/12/28 07:13
I downloaded this app with high hopes, and lucky for me you don’t have to pay for anything. It’s great teaching, and I know every review says this, but the app is REALLY hard at hearing. Especially the low notes, with I know the low notes tend to be a little quieter, but that doesn’t dismiss the fact that it still doesn’t hear too well. I understand that you could turn you volume up if your piano is electric (mine is) but I worry about disturbing my family members. Other than that, this app is amazing for beginning piano players.
There’s a small bug here
by Walrus( ・∇・) on 2019/04/07 13:23
Sooo... I love this app and all, without it I would be legit lost, but the app’s crashing in the middle of me playing, and lessons I’ve already done just... appears as if I haven’t done it, it’s also happening with the songs, the songs appear 0 stars when I’ve already done them, the app crashed right now, and when I went in again it appeared as if I hadn’t done the training, when I had done the training, the song, and was already in another song, please fix this, it’s driving me crazy. Otherwise it’s an AMAZING app.
Needs feature to override note match
by Joce3003 on 2020/04/24 23:54
I’m not sure if it’s better to have a great feature that doesn’t work well or not have the feature at all. I love the app, but the fact that the note recognition feature doesn’t work well makes it difficult when you’re trying to advance to the next lesson but the app won’t let you because it thinks you got all the notes wrong. Over and over again. There should be a function to turn off the lock that doesn’t allow you to advance unless the app recognizes all the notes correctly, because it doesn’t.
