OnlinePianist app review: an animated piano tutorial which enables you to control and design your learning experience

Reviews

Introduction

Making its way into the Music category of the App Store is this wonderfully charming iPad piano app that provides an easy and effective way for new pianists to learn how to play various songs in a fun and approachable manner.

Any app that is aimed at furthering musicianship amongst its users is one that I can really get behind, and this one is certainly no exception.

Personally, I prefer to simply sit with a musical instrument and find my own way around it, but if you’re looking for a slightly more formal, albeit fun way of learning how to play the piano, then I would very much recommend that you take this app for a spin.

Learn Piano the Fun Way

When you first start using OnlinePianist - Piano Tutorials for Popular Songs you’ll be provided with six songs free of charge. Three of these songs are demos and you can also pick another three of your choice. The developer has also been kind enough to provide another free song for every three subsequent times that you log in.

In terms of the educational aspects of this app, it is designed to help you work on factors such as individual hand movements, speed and tempo adjustments, working with sustain, and playing in time with a metronome.

The developer has also promised that lessons for finger positions and piano chords will also be added in future versions of this piano app.

Entertaining, Engaging, and Effective!

Please note that this app is based on a monthly subscription service, charged at $9.99 per month. In my opinion, this is likely to be far cheaper than actually hiring a piano tutor for you or your child, so I definitely think this is worth trying out, if only for just a month.

All in all, this definitely appears to be a very solid development, and you can really tell that the developer has gone to lengths to ensure an entertaining, and most importantly, engaging learning experience to keep you coming back for more.
