Piano Maestro – Playing Piano Is So Much Fun!
I was so excited to have the opportunity to try Piano Maestro. My daughter and I started taking piano lessons several weeks ago. She is 9 years old with ADHD so an entertaining app to reinforce some of the things she is learning is very welcome.
So far we have only played the music directly on the iPad. Tonight I tried to play it with our piano but it didn’t work. I do not attribute it at all to the app – our piano hasn’t been tuned in 7 years. I have no doubt middle “C” did not sound like a middle “C” should. The app just couldn’t recognize it.
Like many apps you have to complete certain levels to be able to advance to the next level. You have to become a master at each level to move on. There is a way to bypass some levels by taking a test and scoring three stars – basically mastering the test. Because we have been in lessons we were able to move up based on our experience.
This is a fun way to learn sheet music and understand the notations and symbols. The user does learn both treble clef and bass clef. I did not try the Connect Your Teacher feature but I may at a later date. That allows our piano teacher to see our progress.
There are several free levels and you can upgrade to a premium level at any time. New songs are constantly added (weekly!). Check out their Website for even more great news.
This is an excellent app to help us on our way to playing even better! I will also be downloading Piano Dust Buster 2 and Piano Summer Games.
