I quit piano about a year ago because I didn’t like it. I wanted to start back up again because I get bored in the summer. But I didn’t want to do piano when school started because I need to focus on my grades. This app is the best app I own. I love it. I totally recommend this app.
Such an amazing app
by Abby42001 on 2019/07/14 16:21
Normally I don’t write reviews but I have to give credit to this app. This is my first time playing the piano, and I knew how to read notes but not play them. I learned the first notes and I thought it was great to have someone help me understand what and where they are. The only thing that I would like to be fixed is when I play, it mostly does not hear what I am playing and I have to continuously tap the note until it would count it. But overall such a great app!🥳🥳
Ugh
by Naturalhippymama on 2019/07/14 12:21
What if you know how to play piano? I’m 9 years old and I play the pedal. I do not want to start from the beginning!🤦🏻‍♀️
What’s wrong
by Brandy Lou on 2019/07/13 16:56
This app seems amazing but there is one thing it’s not picking up the sound from my piano so I read everything and when I went to turn on the microphone it said that the app hadn’t asked for the use of the microphone so I went to update it but apparently I already had the latest version so I’m on the verge of deleting the app and the option of contacting a member isn’t working so I’m gonna give it one more week for a response on this but them I’m definitely going to delete it - Ma’Kel R 😕
Awesome
by hello to the other side on 2019/07/12 19:02
This game is pretty good
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 💗
I don’t want to pay
by Brittanybeemine on 2019/07/08 23:40
I loved this app till they want you to pay for this app . I will never pay for this app.
Ok listen
by Lulupanda2019 on 2019/07/08 19:29
These app is great but you can’t go past lesson 4 else you pay for it .I am getting tiered of it
Destroyed by Premium
by Jess Fresh on 2019/07/07 01:55
Like others have posted, the lessons in the app used to be completely free. Unfortunately, now the company has decided to sell out and in order for anyone to continue where they left off, they will have to pay for premium services: $120 for the year, $53 for 3 months or $20 bucks for the month. Smh. Really liked this app. Made it up to lesson 18.
The best

Paying to learn Piano!
by momo stinks on 2019/07/05 16:52
Why would you pay to learn piano all you get is a couple of songs and learn some notes but then you have to do a trial for like 30 dollars a month or something. It is just a waist of time to me!
Loving it!
by rainbowcovenant on 2019/07/04 21:55
I’m a homeschool mom of two. They are learning piano at an academy and I felt I couldn’t help them with their practice at home. I decided to try this app and wow. I’ve learned so much. Even on trips I can still practice when I’m away from our real piano. Awesome app. Sometimes it does have a hard time recognizing the played keys on the real piano. Other than that, I love it.

U have to but lessons
by annie8298293922 on 2019/07/01 20:34
Idk if it’s a thing where u only have 10 mins with playing the piano but I have to buy premium to get the other lesson that’s some bull right there
Not horrible, but needs work.
by IAmADangerousFellow on 2019/06/29 01:41
I loved this app before the premium update, it was so easy and lovely to use at home for myself and kids. Now that you have to pay for a year or three months makes me upset. If you buy three months, it’s half the price of the year, which is suppose to be 6 months. (Yes I can do math.) This makes it unfair to people who learn INSANELY fast. You pay more than you are suppose to if you choose a less amount of time. Otherwise I would rate this a FAT 5 stars. Please fix this.
Piano Academy Is Great
by Kay-Hey 🥰 on 2019/06/28 20:23
This app is the best thing that helped me learn piano. This app should never go down because it helps me and encourages me. Not other thing like this app than other like Simply Piano.
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😂😅😜
Great app but...
by yEE.T on 2019/06/24 19:46
I had this app before the new update came out, and I was able to have access to all of the lessons. I was in the middle of lesson thirteen when I had to update it. Now I have to pay for a subscription to be able to resume my lessons. I’m very disappointed. I thought it was free.
Nothing if you do not pay money
by Please add multiplayer! on 2019/06/22 18:33
I already play the piano and I am trying to learn more. I wish that more stuff was free I downloaded this for nothing. The first little part I got to do was really good though, so I know that this is a good app (if payed for).You are not going to get any customers if you make most of it premium for so much money. No ones go to pay that much money it’s not worth it.
I liked it at the beginning but then I had to pay which not all people can pay on an app
by Allie825 on 2019/06/22 15:24
😡
I really loved this app...
by neve,jjj on 2019/06/21 12:28
I’m in a situation that I can’t go to piano lessons right now and I was so happy that I found a free learning piano app and I was progressing with it! Until the latest update which you made and now you have to pay for the lessons That’s disappointing
👎🏻
by hockeystud30 on 2019/06/19 00:38
I got through the first level then it was gonna make me pay!! UGH 🙄
Great,Until
by Kiley💗 on 2019/06/17 19:37
I got this app to learn piano and was very happy to learn that all the coarses were free.I got to a certain level and decided to take a break.After a few months I came back to the app to see that everything had become premium and I had to pay to use it.I’m very disappointed because this app helped me a lot.I’m not going to pay for an app that used to be free.So if you see this please make all the levels free so I can learn piano.
I am mad,sad and disappointed because of this!!!!
by Mjjdnfhf on 2019/06/17 01:03
I downloaded it for me and I deleted it and reinstalled it for my cousin who wanted to learn the piano and then it said I needed a premium membership I was like “what!!!” And now I am writing this review.
My kids love it after school every day they play there piano
by I had to rate this five stars on 2019/06/16 21:55
My kids love me after school they play the piano every day it is the best app ever
Don’t make premium
by douper piano on 2019/06/15 01:37
Don’t make premium because people don’t want to pay for it
Subscription? Seriously
by Ejsjajs on 2019/06/12 21:37
Most kids like to learn the piano and I am one of them! I’m 11 years old. And I’m broke! Who would think a kid would have enough money to pay for a subscription? Just saying...
Doesn’t work?
by santa says hoe hoe hoe on 2019/06/12 20:37
I tried to use it with my keyboard, but when I hit the C and F notes, the app didn’t pick up the sound.....so I adjusted the volume to the highest it could be, and played all the C and F notes on my keyboard, but it wouldn’t work.
Ok.. But too fast
by Ffggjjhggjjgg on 2019/06/12 01:39
Great app at the beginning, but once hit the 2 hands,,, it too fast for me. Must have the feature to slow down the speed. I like to practice with the right hànd but once with 2 hànds, it move way too fast and hard to learn. Maybe future add on???. Slow down button.
Why Money???
by MoneyIssues on 2019/06/11 01:09
Every time I go to a piano app, it costs money so I delete it. I really like this app but it costs money. What if we don’t have the money?
Great game
by 2000nd girl on 2019/06/10 20:53
Great to teach a second grader who is me
Good.... For 10 minutes...
by YURM0THER on 2019/06/08 20:53
I thought when I downloaded this “oh this is gonna be GREAT” But no! Sure, it’s a great app, the teacher is enthusiastic, the sound recognition is ok i guess... by you couldn’t at least give us a FEW more lessons without making us pay a freaking $119.00 FOR PREMIUM!!!!! I really wanted to learn piano and I really expected more from this app. I learned 2 LESSONS and then it said “pay for premium to continue” SERIOUSLY?!?! Honestly I think that is a scam. I can’t find ANY apps! I’m downloading ANOTHER app. Don’t waste your time on this app.
I really love this app
by Sh3sh32011 on 2019/06/08 13:10
This app is amazing and I really love it but I have a problem with restoring purchase. When I try to restore it, I am informed that I have not purchased the app in the first place even though I already did. Now I am asked to make another payment even though I have already did
Disapoonting trial
by DragonLost on 2019/06/06 23:50
Trail period was a trial for an unfinished app Some sessions have a metronome “song” that just flat out does not fit the song being practiced. Most glaringly is “over the rainbow”.
It's good at start but not good
by 1010679 on 2019/06/06 20:40
When I downloaded it it was great than when you learned cdef it tells you you have to buy a membership like I want to learn piano but this.this dose not help I could honestly learn more on YouTube but I can't play because I don't have a keyboard so eh it's not the best app and I hope they fix it
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!
This is the best game to learn piano
by A Happy Momma 😏😏😏 on 2019/06/02 01:24
I played this game for piano lessons because my piano teacher taught me garbage so I need a better app to teach me piano so now I’m getting better with both hands on the piano
Pleased until
by JoVon M. on 2019/05/31 05:33
I was actually very happy with this app because it wasn’t like most piano learning apps. You can learn how to play piano with some of your favorite songs and best of all it was free, no restrictions, knowledge for everyone. Now that it has updated I can no longer learn how to play piano with this wonderful app, because I don’t have the money. I’m not upset, just disappointed.
Was good, now bad
by Best girl😘 on 2019/05/30 23:51
This app was amazing! I used it all the time to learn to play. So you may be asking why one star? Because, it was awesome before they made everything premium with horrible prices! I’m not paying 100 dollars for an app, just to learn the piano. So this app is horrible.
I’m heartbroken
by Jld123abclove on 2019/05/29 19:36
I got this in the first stages and since I got it then it said that I would not have to pay for premium ever but than I got the latest update and now I have to get premium to resume where i left off.
Don’t download it!
by Vferraz on 2019/05/25 21:47
I downloaded the free version to test it with my children, I thought it had in app purchases. One week later I was charged for an entire year (not cheap!) of it. Couldn’t unsubscribe it. Decided to give it a go since I payed for it, still there are a lot of locked things.
I LOVE IT!!!
by Brett106 on 2019/05/25 04:22
Solid app and a great teacher and educational structure, I’ve learned so much in just 30 min, AND ITS FREE?!?!?
Okay...😒
by Griz73 on 2019/05/25 01:20
I thought it would be a good to try piano because I have done other instruments ,But I don’t understand why you have to pay to get through the 2nd lesson!Also I was kinda confused because it gives you a keyboard on the screen even if you say you have a piano!I liked how it taught you and I liked the effort in making the app so it wasn’t so bad.
I wish I had money
by sudokuprofessional on 2019/05/22 08:15
Amazing app I want to buy the premium
Don’t buy this!

by Caption Kirk on 2019/05/20 09:41
I play the same with iPhone and iPad but on iPad always red notes, I did the same but always wrong notes, it lack some time. Pls help me fix it.
Ehhhh...
by Shxriqx_ Roblox on 2019/05/18 23:54
I respect this app and all but like, I DO have a keyboard its just that i press a key and it doesnt do anything, You have to press the key on your PHONE. Overall, I do not recommend this app.
Isn’t it supposed to be free 🤨
by Lavender🦄🐼🦊🐨🐷 on 2019/05/12 15:20
When I endeared the game I could only play 2 lessons then I had to pay for all the other lessons. I was angry cause I thought that I could learn of to play piano with the game but I guess I can’t.🤬😡😭
It’s great but...
by unknown dog nan on 2019/05/08 22:03
The app itself is great and I really liked it and it taught me a lot but I had it before an update and when it updated the only free lesson were the first three or four and I’m not currently at an age to make income so I can’t pay for the lessons and my parents refuse to pay so I had to get rid of the app and I must say that was very disappointing
Good!
by vaq on 2019/05/08 12:36
Very good for begginers. Learned a lot.
Some problems.
by Ldrakehdues on 2019/05/07 23:24
While the lessons are really good, the app often has a hard time hearing the notes I play, even at a high volume. This will cause it to think I played the wrong note, even if I didn’t.
Problem
by Lythepisode on 2019/05/05 18:51
It would be great if there would be back up.
Yay
by Rya Nick on 2019/05/04 18:46
This is a great app for kids because it really helped my kids with the piano they have been asking me to sign them up for lessons I said it was fine but then they found this app 😃👍
Amazing and Easy to use
by 41dreamer on 2019/05/04 15:30
At 41 years old I wanted a nice app to show me how to play....and after searching through many....This app is by far the best one.
Piano Academy
by JacobB1212 on 2019/05/03 00:43
This app is a perfect app for learning the basics and eventually mastering the piano. However, this app only has 2 lessons for free users. I am seriously done with piano apps or any app including lessons. Yokee owns many successful apps. Hope it helped!😀
Won’t let me play on my piano
by dude boi123 on 2019/04/25 20:24
I wanted to be able to play on my piano it made me play on my phone
Beware no refunds!
by Chevyman164289 on 2019/04/25 03:53
Was on a trial basis for a week then they would charge me over 120 dollars after it was over. I figured well I will just test it out and if I don’t like it I’ll cancel. Well I forgot to cancel, just been busy with my work and it just never crossed my mind until I saw I was charged over 120 dollars! Ya it was my fault, I should’ve canceled it before but I tried getting a refund but no, it’s final and can’t get it back. 120 dollars wasted on a company that is greedy and doesn’t care about customer service!
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.
Nice

I got five stars on my review
Used to love it but....
by michellemmendoza on 2019/04/14 21:47
I was trying to find a piano app that could teach me that was completely free then I found this. But then I stopped playing for awhile because I was busy with other things. Then I decided to play again. When I downloaded the app I noticed something was different. I had to pay now for everything. You don’t know how extremely frustrated with this. I am so disappointed and angry with this app now. I’m probably going to delete.
Whyyyyyy!
by v is angry on 2019/04/13 08:52
Why do you have to pay 119.50
Learning
by slide it on 2019/04/11 12:47
Ok
It would be awesome
by no fun games now on 2019/04/10 18:29
It would be a nice app, if you did not have to pay. You have to pay after the first two lessons. And I liked it, but I can’t pay 95 dollars for a piano app.
A little bit bad
by 12wilsonFsux37 on 2019/04/09 21:33
If you want to play a piano but you have a kid that wants to learn how to play the piano it’s useless. On level 3 you have to pay for it why does it have to charge me $100! Maybe because you could be like Mozart 2.0. I think that is why it has to charge me $100. I am sorry to drop that on you but I do not want my kid crying in his pillow. I just started a new job so I do not want to waste my money. But very impressive. Nice try though. So that is why I rated it one star second thought not so bad after all. A medium improvement to so I am now going to rate it 3 stars. Think it sounds good to you too
Sad! 🤬😢
by its a try on 2019/04/07 17:42
This is a great app BUT I hate it now! I lovED this app ever since it was free... It was the only app I could use that DOESN’T Include MONEY BUT today (April 7) I was using the app and than it KICKED me out! When I went back in the app It said for you to start your free-trial I was scared so I quickly passed all the free lessons to see if it was true & when I got to level 3 I was about to cry because I lovED this app! And before it kicked me out I was finally about to pass lesson 10 and I was finally gonna go to both hands, because of this I’m really disappointed, I hope this didn’t happen to anybody else, and I hope you didn’t have to work as hard as I did to get to that lesson and than be kicked out! Enjoy the app If you’re new hopefully no more glitches happen in the future and you get to learn unlike me, maybe I’ll just have to find unfinished lessons in YouTube or something... 😢 I know why you kicked me out because than it won’t be fair BUT at least let me get to lesson 15 or something.. I’m extremely disappointed! 😭
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.
Ok

Great app but the in app piano is terrible
by greatonesv on 2019/03/24 15:18
It’s great for learning but if you have to use the in app piano it’s terrible. With any iPhone without a physical home button every time you try to press a key I thinks you are swiping up to exit and causes the song to pause and have to be unpaused ever couple of notes
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
A great start
by Nasser H Almoumen on 2019/03/21 08:15
Simple and rewarding learning experience however i wish that they update it for the newer iPad Pro 2018 screens.
Great

I learned so much get it ❤️👌👌❤️❤️❤️👍👍
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
Very nice app but
by esaadat on 2019/03/13 03:06
It’s a great app but usb midi is not working with my iPad Pro and Casio keyboard. Also if you add speed control as well, it would make it great.
Worst app ever
by katie 🍭 on 2019/03/10 16:28
It gives you like two lessons with the letters and it expects you to be a perfect I tried it was so hard which gives me to you a zero stars
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.
Why
by kenirn on 2019/03/04 22:17
I like the app a lot but there is one thing whenever I press keys at the same time on level 11 it counts wrong and I pressed down the Wright key!
AMAZING!
by ILovePiano! on 2019/03/04 02:44
I was a very beginning at playing the piano and this app taught me so much stuff about the piano and now I’m an advanced piano player! Highly recommend this app for everyone!
One problem...
by Mona Lisa 101 on 2019/03/03 00:02
There’s just one problem with this app: you have to play the note really hard or else the app won’t recognize that note
App Broken
by Pimpin Big Daddy J on 2019/03/02 23:26
Lesson 5 Trivia, after getting every single question right, it fails and I can’t proceed. Major software bug.
Amazing app
by Eritoelloquito on 2019/03/01 12:50
The way it is conformed is beautiful. I am being able to read music and play de piano step by step. I recommend this app if you want to learn. You can even use your own keyboard or the one in the app in case you do not have one.
Great app
by cutelolipop 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!
Helped me through!
by mommysLittleLearner on 2019/02/27 20:36
This app is sooo amazing I wanted to learn piano for a while than my brother showed it to me and well I’m like a master!! I’m so thankful!!!
It’s amazing af

I used things like simply piano that did not teach me much. But when I found this app while using yokee piano. And an ad for this app popped up so I’m like: okay let’s try this out! Now I’m learning we will rock you by one of my favorite bands: Queen. And I’m still learning. Now I don’t have to worry about buying much. Thank you for making me not spend 100s of dollars learning piano! 10/10

I HATE this app!!!!
by MadCustomer42 on 2019/02/24 23:28
I’m practicing piano with low budget. I download this app. When I play the key on MY keyboard, it doesn’t work. Soon, I find out that you have play it on their keyboard. I’m not happy about that!
Please read this
by 🙂🙁😡🤩 on 2019/02/24 20:21
Ok I absolutely love this app but my younger brother deleted all my apps and when I downloaded this one again all my progress was lost so can there be something where you can pick if your a beginner or you already know stuff because that would really help me out because I’m on lesson 13 but now I’m at lesson 1
Trouble
by yffvguj on 2019/02/24 01:06
When I was on my real piano playing stay with me it won’t press it for me when I pressed it
Fun and works perfect with midi
by Lois L. on 2019/02/23 09:54
This is a fun app. Works perfectly with my keyboard using a midi usb 2 and Apple camera adapter and my iPad. No delay or errors recognizing notes played. Thank you for the update with new lessons.
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.
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.
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😂😅😜
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.

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!
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 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 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 emmaiceden 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 😁😁
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.

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
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.
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.
Great app

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.

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!
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 ;)
You NEED this app!
by Brianna Dem on 2018/12/27 01:13
Wow! I have recently just downloaded this app and am already seeing AMAZING results! I’m currently on level 6, but am seeing a large improvement in my piano playing. Each lesson gives you step by step tips including correct posture, new notes and how to read music. There’s no need to buy an app that makes pay for a subscription. This app is free and will teach you everything you need to know to become a professional! 100% recommend
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.
Favorite piano app so far
by Cam420710 on 2018/12/15 02:22
Love this app, been using it a couple days, I HIGHLY recommend it considering it’s free while I’m writing this, it listens to your keyboard or piano very responsively. Teaches all the basics, and much more. New to keyboard myself, and it’s definitely helping me excel in just this short time. Much better than other piano apps that I’ve used. Definitely give it a go if you’re a newbie or experienced, definitely a beneficial and easy to use app, and teaches you quickly!
Such an amazing app
by Abby42001 on 2019/07/14 16:21
Normally I don’t write reviews but I have to give credit to this app. This is my first time playing the piano, and I knew how to read notes but not play them. I learned the first notes and I thought it was great to have someone help me understand what and where they are. The only thing that I would like to be fixed is when I play, it mostly does not hear what I am playing and I have to continuously tap the note until it would count it. But overall such a great app!🥳🥳
Simple and Exciting
by SuperSmellySnail on 2019/01/09 18:11
I’m currently working on getting back into piano, and I think this app is a great way for anybody to start learning. The in-app instructor is engaging and fun, and I recommend this to all. I don’t know how far the app plans to go in instructing students how to play, but I think some form of test or way to skip ahead of lessons would be nice, especially if you’ve had some exposure and want to pick up where you left off.
Great app
by GiggityGiggity123 on 2019/01/19 18:19
I don't have anything to complain about besides the size of the built in keyboard, but I'm not going to hold it against the app considering most people probably use their own keyboard. I am planning on getting one soon I just thought I'd learn some stuff while I wait to gather the money. Other than that the app is perfect for learning the piano. It really doesn't take that long either to learn the stuff, just need practice.
Great app!
by Yortamato on 2018/12/11 01:21
So far, went through 7 lessons in the evening. I was wondering at which point a prompt would come up for me to subscribe, but for now it is free. It’s engaging and has tunes you’ll recognize, from pop to classical, and everything in between. Good mix of theory, playing and technique so far. Overall, exceeds my expectations. I don’t think I’ll become a virtuoso, but that’s fine. We will see where it goes!
Great Stuff just few minor bugs
by Pdfwarrior on 2019/01/06 07:04
Forget about Yousician and the likes because this app for me has made me learn much more even in the limited lessons. I highly encourage this new learners of piano. Now I do believe this is a bug but moment when play octave notes simultaneous cause the G clef notes to be unheard so you have to play the treble note after the bass notes or just finagle around until the app detects both notes. If this can be fixed then for me this is definitely a 5. Thanks
It’s amazing af
by Warrior_Smith on 2019/02/27 03:45
I used things like simply piano that did not teach me much. But when I found this app while using yokee piano. And an ad for this app popped up so I’m like: okay let’s try this out! Now I’m learning we will rock you by one of my favorite bands: Queen. And I’m still learning. Now I don’t have to worry about buying much. Thank you for making me not spend 100s of dollars learning piano! 10/10
Not horrible, but needs work.
by IAmADangerousFellow on 2019/06/29 01:41
I loved this app before the premium update, it was so easy and lovely to use at home for myself and kids. Now that you have to pay for a year or three months makes me upset. If you buy three months, it’s half the price of the year, which is suppose to be 6 months. (Yes I can do math.) This makes it unfair to people who learn INSANELY fast. You pay more than you are suppose to if you choose a less amount of time. Otherwise I would rate this a FAT 5 stars. Please fix this.
What’s wrong
by Brandy Lou on 2019/07/13 16:56
This app seems amazing but there is one thing it’s not picking up the sound from my piano so I read everything and when I went to turn on the microphone it said that the app hadn’t asked for the use of the microphone so I went to update it but apparently I already had the latest version so I’m on the verge of deleting the app and the option of contacting a member isn’t working so I’m gonna give it one more week for a response on this but them I’m definitely going to delete it - Ma’Kel R 😕
A little bit bad
by 12wilsonFsux37 on 2019/04/09 21:33
If you want to play a piano but you have a kid that wants to learn how to play the piano it’s useless. On level 3 you have to pay for it why does it have to charge me $100! Maybe because you could be like Mozart 2.0. I think that is why it has to charge me $100. I am sorry to drop that on you but I do not want my kid crying in his pillow. I just started a new job so I do not want to waste my money. But very impressive. Nice try though. So that is why I rated it one star second thought not so bad after all. A medium improvement to so I am now going to rate it 3 stars. Think it sounds good to you too
Loving it!
by rainbowcovenant on 2019/07/04 21:55
I’m a homeschool mom of two. They are learning piano at an academy and I felt I couldn’t help them with their practice at home. I decided to try this app and wow. I’ve learned so much. Even on trips I can still practice when I’m away from our real piano. Awesome app. Sometimes it does have a hard time recognizing the played keys on the real piano. Other than that, I love it.
Amazing App! One tweak and it would be loads better
by JayRaffe51 on 2019/01/07 23:11
This app is great. I have been able to learn how to play with 2 hands in under a month! The one small improvement would be to allow the song to slow down when you are practicing. That would make it much easier to learn songs. Thank you for you time.
Please read this
by 🙂🙁😡🤩 on 2019/02/24 20:21
Ok I absolutely love this app but my younger brother deleted all my apps and when I downloaded this one again all my progress was lost so can there be something where you can pick if your a beginner or you already know stuff because that would really help me out because I’m on lesson 13 but now I’m at lesson 1
Really good app, but...
by Rie4739462847293 on 2018/12/19 22:41
I love, love, love this app. I’m already on the tenth lesson. However, on this lesson, I’ve been noticing that when I play the right notes at the right time, there’s a lot of times where it still tells me I’m wrong so I have to play really loud and play the same song over and over again. Gets on my nerves!! Before this happened, would’ve rated 5 stars. This is still a really good app and I will continue using it. I might even suggest to s friend, who knows.
Excellent App!
by Meeee.<3 on 2019/01/18 21:58
Please keep the subscription free for those who started with this version! I want to take my time with these lessons and not feel like I have to rush because you might be increasing prices. I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the piano. And now with your free app, I can. Thank you for helping make my goals come true.
Room for Improvement
by {•Rachelle•} on 2018/12/15 20:09
I just started using this app and I really like it however there are a couple of issues. I have to start as a beginner as there is no option to skip past what I’ve already learned. When I am playing along I have to hit the piano key before the note displayed on the app otherwise it will count it as incorrect and I will have to replay the song in order to move on to the next lesson.
I love this app
by a fellow.... on 2019/02/03 05:28
I was looking into learning the piano alongside my middle school sister when I stumbled upon this app. All reasons aside, I love it! It wasn’t stressful learning at all and I had fun learning the piano even when I didn’t actually own one. If you’re looking into learning the piano this app is a must for starters! 5 out of 5 stars!! ~Kyra
Glad it’s free
by 3Rence on 2019/01/09 03:03
I’m glad that piano academy doesn’t ask for you to subscribe to the app. I’ve been looking for apps that won’t give me an amount of time that I have to play for that day or an app that tells you need to subscribe for a second lesson. I’m just glad that it’s free for me use so I can enjoy playing the piano.
Love it
by Ashhfw on 2018/12/22 19:47
I really hope they don’t make the subscription soon because I am really learning a lot. I am going to try and get through all the lessons as soon as possible. And btw who is the person guiding us through the lessons. I want to know his name. Is that weird? 😂 I just see him so much but I don’t know his name.
This app can teach an old dog new tricks
by Graces Mams on 2018/12/21 03:41
I am learning alongside my 9 year old. I’ve tried many piano lesson apps including the more expensive subscriptions and none have come close to the quality of this one! Highly recommended. Please, if you start the subscription, keep it affordable ❤️
Takes Patience
by TeriZ. on 2018/12/31 21:23
This is the only music app I’ve found that does not require a subscription for the lessons. However, I finished the available lessons in 4 days. I understand that they’re making new ones, but until then I can’t learn anything new. My feedback: don’t make the updates every couple of months.
Hard time hearing the notes
by vaf55 on 2019/02/02 21:57
When I am playing quite the app doesn’t hear me playing but when I turn up the volume on the piano the sound in the background drowns out. I am on level five but am still using the app. When they update this app I hope 🤞 that my problem will be solved!!!!
Nothing if you do not pay money
by Please add multiplayer! on 2019/06/22 18:33
I already play the piano and I am trying to learn more. I wish that more stuff was free I downloaded this for nothing. The first little part I got to do was really good though, so I know that this is a good app (if payed for).You are not going to get any customers if you make most of it premium for so much money. No ones go to pay that much money it’s not worth it.
Beware no refunds!
by Chevyman164289 on 2019/04/25 03:53
Was on a trial basis for a week then they would charge me over 120 dollars after it was over. I figured well I will just test it out and if I don’t like it I’ll cancel. Well I forgot to cancel, just been busy with my work and it just never crossed my mind until I saw I was charged over 120 dollars! Ya it was my fault, I should’ve canceled it before but I tried getting a refund but no, it’s final and can’t get it back. 120 dollars wasted on a company that is greedy and doesn’t care about customer service!
Okay...😒
by Griz73 on 2019/05/25 01:20
I thought it would be a good to try piano because I have done other instruments ,But I don’t understand why you have to pay to get through the 2nd lesson!Also I was kinda confused because it gives you a keyboard on the screen even if you say you have a piano!I liked how it taught you and I liked the effort in making the app so it wasn’t so bad.
Frustrating
by StarfiishRawr on 2019/01/17 16:08
I was playing without a keyboard, just the app. The keys on the app were very small and didn’t always respond to my presses leading to “missed” notes even though I hadn’t missed any. Songs also don’t match up well to notes you are learning, it’s frustrating. I’m giving it more than one star because with a keyboard it would be much better but don’t bother if you don’t have one.

LOVE IT 😊
by LOVERofQUIZLET on 2019/07/15 15:48
I quit piano about a year ago because I didn’t like it. I wanted to start back up again because I get bored in the summer. But I didn’t want to do piano when school started because I need to focus on my grades. This app is the best app I own. I love it. I totally recommend this app.
Such an amazing app
by Abby42001 on 2019/07/14 16:21
Normally I don’t write reviews but I have to give credit to this app. This is my first time playing the piano, and I knew how to read notes but not play them. I learned the first notes and I thought it was great to have someone help me understand what and where they are. The only thing that I would like to be fixed is when I play, it mostly does not hear what I am playing and I have to continuously tap the note until it would count it. But overall such a great app!🥳🥳
Ugh
by Naturalhippymama on 2019/07/14 12:21
What if you know how to play piano? I’m 9 years old and I play the pedal. I do not want to start from the beginning!🤦🏻‍♀️

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 💗
I don’t want to pay
by Brittanybeemine on 2019/07/08 23:40
I loved this app till they want you to pay for this app . I will never pay for this app.
Ok listen
by Lulupanda2019 on 2019/07/08 19:29
These app is great but you can’t go past lesson 4 else you pay for it .I am getting tiered of it
Destroyed by Premium
by Jess Fresh on 2019/07/07 01:55
Like others have posted, the lessons in the app used to be completely free. Unfortunately, now the company has decided to sell out and in order for anyone to continue where they left off, they will have to pay for premium services: $120 for the year, $53 for 3 months or $20 bucks for the month. Smh. Really liked this app. Made it up to lesson 18.
The best

Paying to learn Piano!
by momo stinks on 2019/07/05 16:52
Why would you pay to learn piano all you get is a couple of songs and learn some notes but then you have to do a trial for like 30 dollars a month or something. It is just a waist of time to me!
Loving it!

U have to but lessons
by annie8298293922 on 2019/07/01 20:34

Piano Academy Is Great
by Kay-Hey 🥰 on 2019/06/28 20:23
This app is the best thing that helped me learn piano. This app should never go down because it helps me and encourages me. Not other thing like this app than other like Simply Piano.
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😂😅😜
Great app but...
by yEE.T on 2019/06/24 19:46
I had this app before the new update came out, and I was able to have access to all of the lessons. I was in the middle of lesson thirteen when I had to update it. Now I have to pay for a subscription to be able to resume my lessons. I’m very disappointed. I thought it was free.

by neve,jjj on 2019/06/21 12:28
I’m in a situation that I can’t go to piano lessons right now and I was so happy that I found a free learning piano app and I was progressing with it! Until the latest update which you made and now you have to pay for the lessons That’s disappointing
👎🏻

I got through the first level then it was gonna make me pay!! UGH 🙄
Great,Until
by Kiley💗 on 2019/06/17 19:37
I got this app to learn piano and was very happy to learn that all the coarses were free.I got to a certain level and decided to take a break.After a few months I came back to the app to see that everything had become premium and I had to pay to use it.I’m very disappointed because this app helped me a lot.I’m not going to pay for an app that used to be free.So if you see this please make all the levels free so I can learn piano.
I am mad,sad and disappointed because of this!!!!
by Mjjdnfhf on 2019/06/17 01:03
I downloaded it for me and I deleted it and reinstalled it for my cousin who wanted to learn the piano and then it said I needed a premium membership I was like “what!!!” And now I am writing this review.
My kids love it after school every day they play there piano
by I had to rate this five stars on 2019/06/16 21:55

Don’t make premium
by douper piano on 2019/06/15 01:37
Don’t make premium because people don’t want to pay for it
Subscription? Seriously
by Ejsjajs on 2019/06/12 21:37
Most kids like to learn the piano and I am one of them! I’m 11 years old. And I’m broke! Who would think a kid would have enough money to pay for a subscription? Just saying...
Doesn’t work?
by santa says hoe hoe hoe on 2019/06/12 20:37
I tried to use it with my keyboard, but when I hit the C and F notes, the app didn’t pick up the sound.....so I adjusted the volume to the highest it could be, and played all the C and F notes on my keyboard, but it wouldn’t work.
Ok.. But too fast
by Ffggjjhggjjgg on 2019/06/12 01:39
Great app at the beginning, but once hit the 2 hands,,, it too fast for me. Must have the feature to slow down the speed. I like to practice with the right hànd but once with 2 hànds, it move way too fast and hard to learn. Maybe future add on???. Slow down button.
Why Money???
by MoneyIssues on 2019/06/11 01:09
Every time I go to a piano app, it costs money so I delete it. I really like this app but it costs money. What if we don’t have the money?
Great game
by 2000nd girl on 2019/06/10 20:53
Great to teach a second grader who is me
Good.... For 10 minutes...
by YURM0THER on 2019/06/08 20:53
I thought when I downloaded this “oh this is gonna be GREAT” But no! Sure, it’s a great app, the teacher is enthusiastic, the sound recognition is ok i guess... by you couldn’t at least give us a FEW more lessons without making us pay a freaking $119.00 FOR PREMIUM!!!!! I really wanted to learn piano and I really expected more from this app. I learned 2 LESSONS and then it said “pay for premium to continue” SERIOUSLY?!?! Honestly I think that is a scam. I can’t find ANY apps! I’m downloading ANOTHER app. Don’t waste your time on this app.
I really love this app
by Sh3sh32011 on 2019/06/08 13:10
This app is amazing and I really love it but I have a problem with restoring purchase. When I try to restore it, I am informed that I have not purchased the app in the first place even though I already did. Now I am asked to make another payment even though I have already did
Disapoonting trial
by DragonLost on 2019/06/06 23:50
Trail period was a trial for an unfinished app Some sessions have a metronome “song” that just flat out does not fit the song being practiced. Most glaringly is “over the rainbow”.
It's good at start but not good
by 1010679 on 2019/06/06 20:40
When I downloaded it it was great than when you learned cdef it tells you you have to buy a membership like I want to learn piano but this.this dose not help I could honestly learn more on YouTube but I can't play because I don't have a keyboard so eh it's not the best app and I hope they fix it
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!
This is the best game to learn piano
by A Happy Momma 😏😏😏 on 2019/06/02 01:24
I played this game for piano lessons because my piano teacher taught me garbage so I need a better app to teach me piano so now I’m getting better with both hands on the piano
Pleased until
by JoVon M. on 2019/05/31 05:33
I was actually very happy with this app because it wasn’t like most piano learning apps. You can learn how to play piano with some of your favorite songs and best of all it was free, no restrictions, knowledge for everyone. Now that it has updated I can no longer learn how to play piano with this wonderful app, because I don’t have the money. I’m not upset, just disappointed.
Was good, now bad
by Best girl😘 on 2019/05/30 23:51
This app was amazing! I used it all the time to learn to play. So you may be asking why one star? Because, it was awesome before they made everything premium with horrible prices! I’m not paying 100 dollars for an app, just to learn the piano. So this app is horrible.
I’m heartbroken
by Jld123abclove on 2019/05/29 19:36
I got this in the first stages and since I got it then it said that I would not have to pay for premium ever but than I got the latest update and now I have to get premium to resume where i left off.
Don’t download it!
by Vferraz on 2019/05/25 21:47
I downloaded the free version to test it with my children, I thought it had in app purchases. One week later I was charged for an entire year (not cheap!) of it. Couldn’t unsubscribe it. Decided to give it a go since I payed for it, still there are a lot of locked things.
I LOVE IT!!!

I wish I had money

I play the same with iPhone and iPad but on iPad always red notes, I did the same but always wrong notes, it lack some time. Pls help me fix it.
Ehhhh...
by Shxriqx_ Roblox on 2019/05/18 23:54
I respect this app and all but like, I DO have a keyboard its just that i press a key and it doesnt do anything, You have to press the key on your PHONE. Overall, I do not recommend this app.
Isn’t it supposed to be free 🤨
by Lavender🦄🐼🦊🐨🐷 on 2019/05/12 15:20
When I endeared the game I could only play 2 lessons then I had to pay for all the other lessons. I was angry cause I thought that I could learn of to play piano with the game but I guess I can’t.🤬😡😭
It’s great but...
by unknown dog nan on 2019/05/08 22:03
The app itself is great and I really liked it and it taught me a lot but I had it before an update and when it updated the only free lesson were the first three or four and I’m not currently at an age to make income so I can’t pay for the lessons and my parents refuse to pay so I had to get rid of the app and I must say that was very disappointing
Good!
by vaq on 2019/05/08 12:36
Very good for begginers. Learned a lot.
Some problems.
by Ldrakehdues on 2019/05/07 23:24
While the lessons are really good, the app often has a hard time hearing the notes I play, even at a high volume. This will cause it to think I played the wrong note, even if I didn’t.
Problem
by Lythepisode on 2019/05/05 18:51
It would be great if there would be back up.
Yay
by Rya Nick on 2019/05/04 18:46
This is a great app for kids because it really helped my kids with the piano they have been asking me to sign them up for lessons I said it was fine but then they found this app 😃👍
Amazing and Easy to use
by 41dreamer on 2019/05/04 15:30
At 41 years old I wanted a nice app to show me how to play....and after searching through many....This app is by far the best one.
Piano Academy
by JacobB1212 on 2019/05/03 00:43
This app is a perfect app for learning the basics and eventually mastering the piano. However, this app only has 2 lessons for free users. I am seriously done with piano apps or any app including lessons. Yokee owns many successful apps. Hope it helped!😀
Won’t let me play on my piano

Beware no refunds!
by Chevyman164289 on 2019/04/25 03:53
Was on a trial basis for a week then they would charge me over 120 dollars after it was over. I figured well I will just test it out and if I don’t like it I’ll cancel. Well I forgot to cancel, just been busy with my work and it just never crossed my mind until I saw I was charged over 120 dollars! Ya it was my fault, I should’ve canceled it before but I tried getting a refund but no, it’s final and can’t get it back. 120 dollars wasted on a company that is greedy and doesn’t care about customer service!
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.
Nice

I got five stars on my review
Used to love it but....
by michellemmendoza on 2019/04/14 21:47
I was trying to find a piano app that could teach me that was completely free then I found this. But then I stopped playing for awhile because I was busy with other things. Then I decided to play again. When I downloaded the app I noticed something was different. I had to pay now for everything. You don’t know how extremely frustrated with this. I am so disappointed and angry with this app now. I’m probably going to delete.
Whyyyyyy!

Ok
It would be awesome
by no fun games now on 2019/04/10 18:29
It would be a nice app, if you did not have to pay. You have to pay after the first two lessons. And I liked it, but I can’t pay 95 dollars for a piano app.
A little bit bad
by 12wilsonFsux37 on 2019/04/09 21:33
If you want to play a piano but you have a kid that wants to learn how to play the piano it’s useless. On level 3 you have to pay for it why does it have to charge me $100! Maybe because you could be like Mozart 2.0. I think that is why it has to charge me $100. I am sorry to drop that on you but I do not want my kid crying in his pillow. I just started a new job so I do not want to waste my money. But very impressive. Nice try though. So that is why I rated it one star second thought not so bad after all. A medium improvement to so I am now going to rate it 3 stars. Think it sounds good to you too
Sad! 🤬😢
by its a try on 2019/04/07 17:42
This is a great app BUT I hate it now! I lovED this app ever since it was free... It was the only app I could use that DOESN’T Include MONEY BUT today (April 7) I was using the app and than it KICKED me out! When I went back in the app It said for you to start your free-trial I was scared so I quickly passed all the free lessons to see if it was true & when I got to level 3 I was about to cry because I lovED this app! And before it kicked me out I was finally about to pass lesson 10 and I was finally gonna go to both hands, because of this I’m really disappointed, I hope this didn’t happen to anybody else, and I hope you didn’t have to work as hard as I did to get to that lesson and than be kicked out! Enjoy the app If you’re new hopefully no more glitches happen in the future and you get to learn unlike me, maybe I’ll just have to find unfinished lessons in YouTube or something... 😢 I know why you kicked me out because than it won’t be fair BUT at least let me get to lesson 15 or something.. I’m extremely disappointed! 😭
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.
Ok

Great app but the in app piano is terrible
by greatonesv on 2019/03/24 15:18
It’s great for learning but if you have to use the in app piano it’s terrible. With any iPhone without a physical home button every time you try to press a key I thinks you are swiping up to exit and causes the song to pause and have to be unpaused ever couple of notes
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
A great start
by Nasser H Almoumen on 2019/03/21 08:15
Simple and rewarding learning experience however i wish that they update it for the newer iPad Pro 2018 screens.
Great

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
Very nice app but
by esaadat on 2019/03/13 03:06
It’s a great app but usb midi is not working with my iPad Pro and Casio keyboard. Also if you add speed control as well, it would make it great.
Worst app ever
by katie 🍭 on 2019/03/10 16:28
It gives you like two lessons with the letters and it expects you to be a perfect I tried it was so hard which gives me to you a zero stars
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.
Why
by kenirn on 2019/03/04 22:17
I like the app a lot but there is one thing whenever I press keys at the same time on level 11 it counts wrong and I pressed down the Wright key!
AMAZING!
by ILovePiano! on 2019/03/04 02:44
I was a very beginning at playing the piano and this app taught me so much stuff about the piano and now I’m an advanced piano player! Highly recommend this app for everyone!
One problem...
by Mona Lisa 101 on 2019/03/03 00:02
There’s just one problem with this app: you have to play the note really hard or else the app won’t recognize that note
App Broken
by Pimpin Big Daddy J on 2019/03/02 23:26
Lesson 5 Trivia, after getting every single question right, it fails and I can’t proceed. Major software bug.
Amazing app
by Eritoelloquito on 2019/03/01 12:50
The way it is conformed is beautiful. I am being able to read music and play de piano step by step. I recommend this app if you want to learn. You can even use your own keyboard or the one in the app in case you do not have one.
Great app
by cutelolipop 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!
Helped me through!
by mommysLittleLearner on 2019/02/27 20:36

It’s amazing af
by Warrior_Smith on 2019/02/27 03:45
I used things like simply piano that did not teach me much. But when I found this app while using yokee piano. And an ad for this app popped up so I’m like: okay let’s try this out! Now I’m learning we will rock you by one of my favorite bands: Queen. And I’m still learning. Now I don’t have to worry about buying much. Thank you for making me not spend 100s of dollars learning piano! 10/10

I’m practicing piano with low budget. I download this app. When I play the key on MY keyboard, it doesn’t work. Soon, I find out that you have play it on their keyboard. I’m not happy about that!
Please read this
by 🙂🙁😡🤩 on 2019/02/24 20:21
Ok I absolutely love this app but my younger brother deleted all my apps and when I downloaded this one again all my progress was lost so can there be something where you can pick if your a beginner or you already know stuff because that would really help me out because I’m on lesson 13 but now I’m at lesson 1
Trouble

Fun and works perfect with midi
by Lois L. on 2019/02/23 09:54
This is a fun app. Works perfectly with my keyboard using a midi usb 2 and Apple camera adapter and my iPad. No delay or errors recognizing notes played. Thank you for the update with new lessons.
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.
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.
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😂😅😜
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.

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!
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 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 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 emmaiceden 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 😁😁
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
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.
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.
Great app
by cutelolipop 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!
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.
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! 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!
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 ;)
You NEED this app!
by Brianna Dem on 2018/12/27 01:13
Wow! I have recently just downloaded this app and am already seeing AMAZING results! I’m currently on level 6, but am seeing a large improvement in my piano playing. Each lesson gives you step by step tips including correct posture, new notes and how to read music. There’s no need to buy an app that makes pay for a subscription. This app is free and will teach you everything you need to know to become a professional! 100% recommend
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.
Favorite piano app so far
by Cam420710 on 2018/12/15 02:22
Love this app, been using it a couple days, I HIGHLY recommend it considering it’s free while I’m writing this, it listens to your keyboard or piano very responsively. Teaches all the basics, and much more. New to keyboard myself, and it’s definitely helping me excel in just this short time. Much better than other piano apps that I’ve used. Definitely give it a go if you’re a newbie or experienced, definitely a beneficial and easy to use app, and teaches you quickly!
Such an amazing app
by Abby42001 on 2019/07/14 16:21
Normally I don’t write reviews but I have to give credit to this app. This is my first time playing the piano, and I knew how to read notes but not play them. I learned the first notes and I thought it was great to have someone help me understand what and where they are. The only thing that I would like to be fixed is when I play, it mostly does not hear what I am playing and I have to continuously tap the note until it would count it. But overall such a great app!🥳🥳
Simple and Exciting
by SuperSmellySnail on 2019/01/09 18:11
I’m currently working on getting back into piano, and I think this app is a great way for anybody to start learning. The in-app instructor is engaging and fun, and I recommend this to all. I don’t know how far the app plans to go in instructing students how to play, but I think some form of test or way to skip ahead of lessons would be nice, especially if you’ve had some exposure and want to pick up where you left off.
Great app
by GiggityGiggity123 on 2019/01/19 18:19
I don't have anything to complain about besides the size of the built in keyboard, but I'm not going to hold it against the app considering most people probably use their own keyboard. I am planning on getting one soon I just thought I'd learn some stuff while I wait to gather the money. Other than that the app is perfect for learning the piano. It really doesn't take that long either to learn the stuff, just need practice.
Great app!
by Yortamato on 2018/12/11 01:21
So far, went through 7 lessons in the evening. I was wondering at which point a prompt would come up for me to subscribe, but for now it is free. It’s engaging and has tunes you’ll recognize, from pop to classical, and everything in between. Good mix of theory, playing and technique so far. Overall, exceeds my expectations. I don’t think I’ll become a virtuoso, but that’s fine. We will see where it goes!
Great Stuff just few minor bugs
by Pdfwarrior on 2019/01/06 07:04
Forget about Yousician and the likes because this app for me has made me learn much more even in the limited lessons. I highly encourage this new learners of piano. Now I do believe this is a bug but moment when play octave notes simultaneous cause the G clef notes to be unheard so you have to play the treble note after the bass notes or just finagle around until the app detects both notes. If this can be fixed then for me this is definitely a 5. Thanks
It’s amazing af
by Warrior_Smith on 2019/02/27 03:45
I used things like simply piano that did not teach me much. But when I found this app while using yokee piano. And an ad for this app popped up so I’m like: okay let’s try this out! Now I’m learning we will rock you by one of my favorite bands: Queen. And I’m still learning. Now I don’t have to worry about buying much. Thank you for making me not spend 100s of dollars learning piano! 10/10
Not horrible, but needs work.
by IAmADangerousFellow on 2019/06/29 01:41
I loved this app before the premium update, it was so easy and lovely to use at home for myself and kids. Now that you have to pay for a year or three months makes me upset. If you buy three months, it’s half the price of the year, which is suppose to be 6 months. (Yes I can do math.) This makes it unfair to people who learn INSANELY fast. You pay more than you are suppose to if you choose a less amount of time. Otherwise I would rate this a FAT 5 stars. Please fix this.
What’s wrong
by Brandy Lou on 2019/07/13 16:56
This app seems amazing but there is one thing it’s not picking up the sound from my piano so I read everything and when I went to turn on the microphone it said that the app hadn’t asked for the use of the microphone so I went to update it but apparently I already had the latest version so I’m on the verge of deleting the app and the option of contacting a member isn’t working so I’m gonna give it one more week for a response on this but them I’m definitely going to delete it - Ma’Kel R 😕
A little bit bad
by 12wilsonFsux37 on 2019/04/09 21:33
If you want to play a piano but you have a kid that wants to learn how to play the piano it’s useless. On level 3 you have to pay for it why does it have to charge me $100! Maybe because you could be like Mozart 2.0. I think that is why it has to charge me $100. I am sorry to drop that on you but I do not want my kid crying in his pillow. I just started a new job so I do not want to waste my money. But very impressive. Nice try though. So that is why I rated it one star second thought not so bad after all. A medium improvement to so I am now going to rate it 3 stars. Think it sounds good to you too
Loving it!
by rainbowcovenant on 2019/07/04 21:55
I’m a homeschool mom of two. They are learning piano at an academy and I felt I couldn’t help them with their practice at home. I decided to try this app and wow. I’ve learned so much. Even on trips I can still practice when I’m away from our real piano. Awesome app. Sometimes it does have a hard time recognizing the played keys on the real piano. Other than that, I love it.
Amazing App! One tweak and it would be loads better
by JayRaffe51 on 2019/01/07 23:11
This app is great. I have been able to learn how to play with 2 hands in under a month! The one small improvement would be to allow the song to slow down when you are practicing. That would make it much easier to learn songs. Thank you for you time.
Please read this
by 🙂🙁😡🤩 on 2019/02/24 20:21
Ok I absolutely love this app but my younger brother deleted all my apps and when I downloaded this one again all my progress was lost so can there be something where you can pick if your a beginner or you already know stuff because that would really help me out because I’m on lesson 13 but now I’m at lesson 1
Really good app, but...
by Rie4739462847293 on 2018/12/19 22:41
I love, love, love this app. I’m already on the tenth lesson. However, on this lesson, I’ve been noticing that when I play the right notes at the right time, there’s a lot of times where it still tells me I’m wrong so I have to play really loud and play the same song over and over again. Gets on my nerves!! Before this happened, would’ve rated 5 stars. This is still a really good app and I will continue using it. I might even suggest to s friend, who knows.
Excellent App!
by Meeee.<3 on 2019/01/18 21:58
Please keep the subscription free for those who started with this version! I want to take my time with these lessons and not feel like I have to rush because you might be increasing prices. I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the piano. And now with your free app, I can. Thank you for helping make my goals come true.
Room for Improvement
by {•Rachelle•} on 2018/12/15 20:09
I just started using this app and I really like it however there are a couple of issues. I have to start as a beginner as there is no option to skip past what I’ve already learned. When I am playing along I have to hit the piano key before the note displayed on the app otherwise it will count it as incorrect and I will have to replay the song in order to move on to the next lesson.
I love this app
by a fellow.... on 2019/02/03 05:28
I was looking into learning the piano alongside my middle school sister when I stumbled upon this app. All reasons aside, I love it! It wasn’t stressful learning at all and I had fun learning the piano even when I didn’t actually own one. If you’re looking into learning the piano this app is a must for starters! 5 out of 5 stars!! ~Kyra
Glad it’s free
by 3Rence on 2019/01/09 03:03
I’m glad that piano academy doesn’t ask for you to subscribe to the app. I’ve been looking for apps that won’t give me an amount of time that I have to play for that day or an app that tells you need to subscribe for a second lesson. I’m just glad that it’s free for me use so I can enjoy playing the piano.
Love it
by Ashhfw on 2018/12/22 19:47
I really hope they don’t make the subscription soon because I am really learning a lot. I am going to try and get through all the lessons as soon as possible. And btw who is the person guiding us through the lessons. I want to know his name. Is that weird? 😂 I just see him so much but I don’t know his name.
This app can teach an old dog new tricks
by Graces Mams on 2018/12/21 03:41
I am learning alongside my 9 year old. I’ve tried many piano lesson apps including the more expensive subscriptions and none have come close to the quality of this one! Highly recommended. Please, if you start the subscription, keep it affordable ❤️
Takes Patience
by TeriZ. on 2018/12/31 21:23
This is the only music app I’ve found that does not require a subscription for the lessons. However, I finished the available lessons in 4 days. I understand that they’re making new ones, but until then I can’t learn anything new. My feedback: don’t make the updates every couple of months.
Hard time hearing the notes
by vaf55 on 2019/02/02 21:57
When I am playing quite the app doesn’t hear me playing but when I turn up the volume on the piano the sound in the background drowns out. I am on level five but am still using the app. When they update this app I hope 🤞 that my problem will be solved!!!!
Nothing if you do not pay money
by Please add multiplayer! on 2019/06/22 18:33
I already play the piano and I am trying to learn more. I wish that more stuff was free I downloaded this for nothing. The first little part I got to do was really good though, so I know that this is a good app (if payed for).You are not going to get any customers if you make most of it premium for so much money. No ones go to pay that much money it’s not worth it.
Beware no refunds!
by Chevyman164289 on 2019/04/25 03:53
Was on a trial basis for a week then they would charge me over 120 dollars after it was over. I figured well I will just test it out and if I don’t like it I’ll cancel. Well I forgot to cancel, just been busy with my work and it just never crossed my mind until I saw I was charged over 120 dollars! Ya it was my fault, I should’ve canceled it before but I tried getting a refund but no, it’s final and can’t get it back. 120 dollars wasted on a company that is greedy and doesn’t care about customer service!
Okay...😒
by Griz73 on 2019/05/25 01:20
I thought it would be a good to try piano because I have done other instruments ,But I don’t understand why you have to pay to get through the 2nd lesson!Also I was kinda confused because it gives you a keyboard on the screen even if you say you have a piano!I liked how it taught you and I liked the effort in making the app so it wasn’t so bad.
Frustrating
by StarfiishRawr on 2019/01/17 16:08
I was playing without a keyboard, just the app. The keys on the app were very small and didn’t always respond to my presses leading to “missed” notes even though I hadn’t missed any. Songs also don’t match up well to notes you are learning, it’s frustrating. I’m giving it more than one star because with a keyboard it would be much better but don’t bother if you don’t have one.
