  • Best but needs improvement

    By Dgdg87
    I think this is the best piano tutor app out there, but it needs work. The inability for it to properly recognize notes is frustrating and interrupts flow and learning. I purchased the cords to hook up my keyboard to my iPad, so hopefully that helps, but there is no work around when playing my acoustic piano, so I'll have to play my keyboard when using this app, also frustrating. I would also like to have more control of the sheet music in the lessons. I would like to press pause and then be able to scroll through the sheet music. Right now when you hit stop it takes you back to the beginning of the sheet music automatically. At least allow me to pause it where I'm at and practice and repeat the current notes at my own pace, or have an option in the lesson to review all sheet music and scroll through it there. For what it is and the need to purchase cords, $5 a month should be the max for a subscription.

  • Why auto subscriptions!!

    Why do all of these music apps offer free trials but force you to be apart of auto renewal? I know exactly why, in the hopes you'll forget and they can charge one hundred something dollars. I hate auto renewal subscriptions! If you app is any good you won't need to con people into accidentally buying your product! Also the app seemed to have trouble recognizing two notes played at the same time.

    That was taught really well, in a way that I could catch on quickly but separated enough so it wasn’t too much to take in. How encouraging! A quick, packed lesson. Thanks!

  • Bad tune recognition

    This software can not specify most of the sound I play. It waste me lots of the time to click the same key again and again just to let it go through! It’s really annoying.

    Great App. Highly recommendable to everyone. Great great job.
  • Great in concept but not very useful

    1
    By Rivers920
    The concept behind the software is great but the fact that it has to hear the notes on the piano in order to move ahead made it really frustrating. It often did not hear the notes even when we had it turned up so we had to continuously go back and play the same notes. We have a brand new piano too. Due to licensing they cannot give you just the sheet music to play (it only gives you a line at a time). We pretty much stopped using it after a week. Wish we didn’t waste the money on the 3 month subscription.
  • To all the people having trouble getting it to pick up notes

    By KC555444552698766
    To all of the people having trouble getting the app to pick up notes from their piano/keyboard: I have had this problem with all of the piano apps that I have tried and I figured out that if I transpose my keyboard, usually up one from the default, it will register the notes. If going up one doesn’t work, I would recommend fiddling with it until the notes register, as other keyboards may be set up differently from mine. Hope this helps! Note: I am giving this review more as advice than an actual review, so I will be giving it five stars automatically, regardless of my actual rating.

  • Keys are messed up

    By Eng. Abdulaziz Ali
    The Keys are all messed up when you use Iphone X, when you press the “C” key for example, the app reads a “D” key, i think its a screen issue!
  • Why do you have to pay?

  • Fraudulent charges

    By ashr23
    Outrageous. Mentioned a free trial for the premium service. I tried to use it, but it didn’t seem to be working. All the songs remained locked except for the starter free ones and I assumed the premium trial never kicked off. But it did and now they’ve charged me 90 dollars for a year of premium and the app STILL says I need premium to play any of the songs. I tried to cancel or check the subscription and there’s no option to even do that in the app. I tried to get a refund and was rejected.

    This seems like a lot of money for an online course. I’d probably be more likely to spend this kind of money to go and meet with someone one on one.
  • Too much money

    By fjsjdudhuzzigxcxhcj
    Sure you may get a 7 day free trial but after that it’s 89.99 your better off finding a cheaper free alternative
  • Too many tooltips.

    By I'll-221
    It is so annoying that this app continuously launches those little blue boxes of text. Sometimes to deliver incredibly irrelevant tips. My hands are on the keyboard and I have to lift them to escape these messages that are blocking the actual musical content I am here to ingest. What was your UX team thinking?

  • Doesn’t work like it should

    1
    By tortilibilly
    The app won’t register notes and keeps saying the note I’m playing is wrong when I’m playing it right next to the microphone with an electric keyboard. I’ve tried turning up the volume, there’s no (loud) noise around me, and I’ve tried exiting the lesson and app together, and it still won’t work. I tried contacting staff through the conversation feature and said they would be back tomorrow. When playing with the app, it got kind of confusing when the segment of the piece restarted, as it suddenly went off beat with the tempo given in the beginning.

  • Simple but expensive lessons

    By maskedman991
    The lessons are great, very good for starters to learn and adapt to playing piano. The lessons seem to be a bit expensive and in my perspective there should be some offers or deals to continue on taking the lessons. There are many applications, websites to learn piano from but it would be amazing if the app can be exceptional in terms of prices and lessons.

  • Everything is locked

    I could barely evaluate the app because everything is locked. the few lessons released in beginner mode are not enough to test the app.

  • Great but can be improved

    4
    By Khalid G.
    An amazing app with a lot of potential and I have learned quite a bit so far. However, there are some issues that I have noticed. This first thing is when I open the app, it asks me to login every time and I have to go through the process of logging into Facebook. The second thing that can be improved are the bugs when I play along with the animation, it often does not follow the keys and the sounds play at different times.
  • good but

    it would be better if it had a setting to calibrate your mic input to my pianos notes. i have an old piano and it’s a half step off key. hard to use the app if the keys don’t match what the app hears.

    At first it worked very well but the app is now buggy and the audio is terrible as it won’t register the keys I hit, app needs fixing
  • Great app except......

    By fardhdkfstskktsdly
    I love this app. It is a very good way to learn piano but sometimes it can’t hear what your playing so you have to press your key a lot of times before you can move on. This is VERY annoying. Overall though pretty good app.
  • Great app, great support

    By Wendell Borton
    The app has helped me begin learning piano. It works. Also, for my iPhone, it was more useful to buy a midi-lightning cable. To hear the app with the cable plugged in, make sure your vibrate switch is set to “ring”.

    This app would get stuck every time I was actually able to log in. $90.00 and I couldn’t even log in without trying at least 5-7 times just for it to get stuck every time. MY ACCOUNT HAD BETTER NOT BE CHARGED!!!!!!!

    By Nagelle
    I’ve never left a bad review on apple before but I really wish I could get my money back. I purchased the 1 year subscription for over $100 and the app didn’t retain the lessons that I did (over an hour), won’t keep me logged in and now the app won’t even open. Lesson learned...
  • Very difficult to use

    2
    By Sunddbrunch
    The app will NOT remember your progress! It will tell you that you have yet reached lesson 2 when you’ve already completely all the lessons in the whole series. It also won’t recognize some notes on the piano even though I have a very standard brand new piano. It won’t recognize certain notes no matter how loud I play them. This makes it impossible to play fluently, or to play with any rhythm in mind because you are forced to repeat certain notes otherwise the sheet won’t progress. This and the fact that they don’t provide full sheets of music but the app only progresses by listening to you make it very ANNOYING to practice with. There’s also no rewind button so forget about returning to a certain segment to practice more. Overall very poorly designed and difficult to use.
