Piano Tutor for iPad
What does it do?
If you have ever wanted to learn to play the piano, this app is bound to give you an insight into the basics of the keys and tunes. With Piano Tutor, the notes are clearly labelled on the keyboard interface and there is a display with all of the song details and a timer. You are measured on accuracy, errors and timed on response to what key you need to press. The key sounds are life like, and the pitch is clear for each of the notes. There are also modes called Treble and Bass which are used for practising both your left and right hand. Are you a beginner? Don’t worry, with key hints the notes will be displayed clearly for you so you too can learn in no time. Your scores are also tracked so you can see your improvements. As you progress, you have the option to play new songs from music sheets which get more difficult as you progress. New songs are downloadable from the app store if you run out of music to play making this application futureproof.
What’s the verdict?
Piano’s are not the easiest thing in the world to grasp, however this app lays down a great foundation level of learning from beginners through to intermediate musicians. The sounds produced are realistic which reflects how much of a high quality app this is. The additions of extra music available on the app store provides hours of fun, making this app one that will last. Piano Tutor starts from the basics (even we could use it!) and within a matter of minutes you will soon pick up the basic notes, enabling you to play the piano.
