The piano is one of the most iconic instruments in the history of music. While some still associate it with a stuffy, closed elite, the piano blends with every genre you’d find on a music streaming service and can be accessed by all audiences.
Also, in addition to learning to play the guitar, you can also learn to play the piano through our selection of applications.
Apps to learn to play the piano
The piano is an art with its universe, its codes, its techniques. A few apps help you find out all about it.
Piano – Apprenez le piano
In addition to its fairly classic virtual keyboard, the Piano – Learn the piano application offers didactic videos where an instructor gives you advice on how to perform certain chords and explains some notions of music theory.
If you play on the application, the latter can also give you some feedback to help you progress. Some sheet music will also help you better master the art of the piano.
You may be itching to play the piano at any time of the day, even when you’re away from your instrument. The Perfect Piano application may succeed in relieving your ardor. It is indeed a virtual keyboard that you can customize in several ways to display the keys you want and configure the sound effects of your choice.
You can strum on your smartphone to quickly review a few chords, a sequence of notes or do some tests. A section of Perfect Piano also offers to try a few pieces with the notes and the rhythm that scrolls on the screen “in cascade” (you have to press at the right time and for the right duration).
Music Notes – Learn to read notes
Some of you may be starting to learn the piano… but without mastering some rudimentary music theory such as reading notes on a score. The Music Notes – Learn to Read Notes app can remedy this (its name didn’t leave much room for doubt).
You will find some fun exercises with different game modes to gradually succeed in deciphering the notes as if they were an alphabet. A sober application, unpretentious and very easy to handle.
Applications to play the right notes on the piano
Well, the applications above help above all to understand a piano keyboard, to recognize which note corresponds to each key. To really master the instrument, however, you can go further with the apps below.
MuseScore: view and play sheet music
We often play an instrument to be able to reproduce our favorite songs or some classics. In this case, it can be useful to get your hands on a score to know how to do it right. MuseScore will be a good ally in this context since this application boasts a catalog of more than a million scores.
Look for the piece that interests you or try to discover a new one to play on the piano. You can also download the scores on your smartphone to have them at your fingertips even without being connected to the Internet.
Perfect Ear – Ear Trainer
Good. You know how to play the piano. It’s time to take the next step and develop your hearing acuity with Perfect Ear. This application offers you several types of exercises dedicated to fine-tuning your esgourdes, both to recognize notes in order to redo them and to make them aware of the notions of rhythms and intervals.
Of course, we don’t promise you absolute pitch, but keen hearing is obviously a major asset when you start playing music.
