  • Horrible!!!

    By Nattysdaddy
    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!!!!!!!

    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.
  • Asks for too much...

    Asks for too much info before they allow you to try the app (pain in the a55). Email address, name, subscription. I feel they do this in hopes that you will forget or not know cancel the subscription. Very annoyed with this sketchy scam mentality.

  • Looks good, I want it to work

    I’m playing keys on the staff correctly but it’s asking me to play a different note, and it doesn’t seem to be keeping up with the melody. I’m an intermediate player and tried on the first lesson with same result.

    Does not work on piano. You do not state that when purchasing I have a piano
  • Terrible

    By kfejfiehrjjvrivrjrij
    I got this app thinking that I would use it every day. NOPE. You can only play three songs but you can actually only play one of them because the other songs are intermediate and hard. I recommend that you don’t download this app unless you are willing to pay.☹️😠

    Do not get this app!!!! You can play 1 thing and that is all!!! I am so mad that Everyone was saying that this is a five star rating app and it is not. The app is good at listening to what notes you are playing but I find myself going faster than the app is going and it will not read my music because of that.(also I am just a beginner) I am very frustrated that you get a app like this and are very excited for it and then it is a awful app. Don’t waste your time on this one.ALL IT IS ABOUT TO THEM IS MONEY!!!!!😱😱😱😨😨😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢 PS I was excited for this app for only 5 minutes.(The five minutes was before I got it) you’ll have fun in the first one minute of the app and then it all goes downhill with them asking for money multiple times nothing else is unlocked. I’m not trying to be rude I’m just trying to save people from having to do the same thing that I went through!!
  • The listening portion is horrible.

    By Rowandator
    Half the time it doesn’t pick up the correct notes when trying to learn. Very frustrating. It hurts more than it helps. There should also be a section with just the notes and no play along or listening. They also won’t refund your money even if you’re dissatisfied. Wouldn’t purchase again.
  • Great tunes

    Skoove offers so much more than other apps. I used it after not playing for over 40 years. I was able to become advanced again using it 1/2 hour daily for 6months. When my 12 year old granddaughter visits, she tinkers with it and was able to play many songs in just a few days. I highly recommend this app.
  • Wonderful for a Beginner

    I’m 60 years old and want to play piano for enjoyment. I purchased Skoove and Flowkey. I started with lessons in both and find both very good. I find the lessons in Skoove very doable and have made good progress in about 6 weeks. I can read music and play songs with both hands. I love it! I practice every day because I want to improve. I would give 5 stars if I could slow down playing with the band and increase the speed once I became more proficient. I find the transition from practicing to the band too challenging. I also find the messages that appear while playing can be distracting and sometimes block my view of the music. I appreciate the feedback for my playing but they appear in the middle of my playing sometimes. I like the way music theory is taught through the lesson in playing, connecting the concept to piano playing instead of separately. The arrangements for beginner level are very good and are enjoyable to play. I wish there were longer versions to play outside of lessons for practice and enjoyment. I would also like more holiday music at this level. Overall, it is a great app and I love connecting my iPad to my Yamaha keyboard through a midi cord for accuracy, although I found it also works fairly well through the microphone.
  • TO MUCH MONEY

    I always wanted to play the piano but never had the opportunity to take lessons as a child. Now, as a senior, I decided it was not too late. I downloaded several piano apps but found this one the best. This app has it all. The systematic way the lessons are presented makes it simple, easy and fun to learn. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this app and how thrilled I am to finally be able to play something other than chop-sticks.
  • For the most beginner of beginners

    By cacotigon
    Unfortunately if you have any experience at all on the piano, this app will frustrate you to no end. Everything is extremely slow paced, and you can’t even practice a full song without going through the interminable excruciatingly slow step by step process of learning the song.
  • Really Helpful App

    By Wenrl
    This is a great app for learning the piano whether you take lessons or not. Very helpful for learning notes and fingering for beginners. I haven’t gotten into more advanced music, but I’m looking forward to completing everything you offer here. I would like the option of learning the full songs and the option of downloading pdf of the music learned. I would be willing to pay extra for the full version of songs and sheet music so I could practice without the app once I have played with the app a few times. Like, 1-3 dollars for full song and download from a separate Skoove site.

    Notes recognition is sub-par compared to others apps available and they don't even support MIDI. Feankly a non starter for me.
  • Oppressive Authentation

    Awesome if it saves your progress but I did not even bother. I have no interest in supporting an app that forces me to sign in.

    I'm trying to get started. Have limited time on piano and you bother me with writing a review and other crap. The lesson should start immediately. No blah blah blah.

    I’ve purchased many piano lessons in my day, never have I been able to sit down at the piano and begin playing immediately. Thank you, I’m excited about learning how to play for my church.

  • Buying a subscription gives you almost nothing!!

    By Pjbuke
    I actually like the way this app works. But I’m a little confused, The versión you suscribe to from the AppStore is actually very limited and you need an additional subscription to use most of the functionality.
  • Premium

    The interface is very muddy and cluttered.
  • Great for beginners — advanced players, not so much.

    By Tatipu
    The interface is okay. I can see how it would benefit those who have little to no experience with piano. I’m impressed with how the app can pick up sound correctly though. For advanced players, it’s frustrating since you have to play by the tempo given but again, primarily for beginners so I can’t be too upset. I played a few things here and there. Songs are not the full piece though so I’m not a fan of it saying you played the full song. Otherwise I would definitely recommend this to beginners. It’s well worth the price. I remember having to go to an actual teacher and pay $ 30-50 an hour per week for over 15 years.

    Great for beginners and even experts like myself. I found this can be quicker than sheets. Love the library of music and the dev team seems pretty interested in improving their product.
  • Great potential CUMBERSOME app

    By Tractor'sMom
    I bought a midi keyboard for my kid and this app was offered with purchase. We use his iPhone. Song selection is great BUT. Using the app makes you want to tear out your hair. You can't just return to the menu to switch between songs- you have to FORWARD through each lesson in a session (6 or 7) and then try to jump to the en of all 8 or 9 remaining songs before you can go back to the top of the song you were playing. Good lessons. Good songs. But I won't spend a cent on this app because they don't seem to care about user experience on iPhone.

  • Amazing

    By apfitzg2
    This app is amazing. I’m learning piano way faster than any lesson book I can pick up, but I have knowledge of music. I think there needs to be more teaching of notes on the staff. Also, I’m having an issue where the app crashes sometimes and I can’t continue my lesson.
  • Outstanding

    This is the only way to learn piano if you have no prior experience. The app is so easy to use. The Skoove staff is always available to help and communicates promptly to any questions. I have told so many people about the Skoove app be cause I highly recommend it. I am fulfilling a life long dream and have Skoove to thank.
