    I used the free 7 day trial to test out the app and see how far I could get, and I wasn’t disappointed. However, I didn’t cancel my trial in time and was charged the $119 yearly fee for a subscription. I contacted customer support and luckily they were very understanding and super helpful in getting my money back! I gained some great beginner piano skills and received a lot of kindness and zero pushiness to keep the subscription when I asked to cancel. Definitely would recommend to anyone!

    Sometimes when I restart the song that I’m playing, I can’t see the notes that I’m supposed to place and it’s really annoying.

    This app was nice at the start but then when you finish all the lessons you have to pay and get the membership to continue. I forget how much manny but it’s ridiculous
  • Sound recognition poor

    I have already played piano in the past and have been a musician all my life, so when I get to the end of the first lesson, play the practice sections perfectly and can’t seem to get through the “duet” singers without it saying I’m missing notes that I’m playing in time with the music. When it takes me back to the metronome mode I’m not missing anything. My guess is that the music on the device from the “singer” is actually interfering with the sound the microphone is picking up. It’s such a shame because the first couple of steps seemed so promising.

    i’ve been using the app for about 2 1/2 months now and overall I’m very pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to do self study for keyboard. That being said, there are a few things that truly bug me. Whenever you finish playing a song, the app jumps very quickly to a screen that presents you with feedback on how accurately you played. That’s dandy, but it does it so fast you don’t have a decent chance to enter the review mode that allows you to see and study your mistakes. If you don’t hit pause within milliseconds of the song ending, you lose the opportunity for review altogether and all the information about what mistakes you made is gone for good. I would like to see the app wait for the user’s OK before going to the score screen and offer the option of review explicitly and at any time before either closing the song or playing it again. Ideally, it would remember the most recent performance indefinitely so you could come back the following day or a week and review what you did the previous time. When the app goes to the score screen, it plays a celebratory tune completely unrelated to what you just played. And it plays it over and over and over, never stopping, world without end, amen. In other words, just when you would most like to relax and think about what you just played, the app barrages you with utterly irrelevant music that completely distracts you. I would like the option to completely disable the celebratory music. The scoring is too lax. The highest rating is three stars. it is quite possible to earn a three star rating on the basis of a performance that would be completely unacceptable musically in any conceivable context, including casual performance for friends and family. I would like a four-star or five-star system in which four stars requires 95% note accuracy and 90% or better rhythmic accuracy and five stars requires 100% note accuracy and 95% or better rhythmic accuracy. The present system could easily delude beginners into thinking they are playing far better than they are. Sooner or later the real world will painfully disabuse them of this. I deeply miss a way to identify a segment of a song and “woodshed” that section, looping through it repeatedly at gradually increasing user-controlled tempo until the user explicitly quits “woodshed” mode. Last but not least, the developers need to learn respect for the great masters of music of the past. Do not “improve” Bach, Handel and Beethoven with cheesy, ridiculous so-called “arrangements” that arbitrarily add drum tracks, guitar licks and who knows what other garbage to music that has stood the test of time for centuries. The original editions are readily available and are in the public domain—they won’t cost you a dime! Use them! If you can be respectful of Boyz To Men you can be respectful of Bach!

    Simply Piano is really great and awesome but it doesn’t get all the notes I hit and I have to press my keyboard as hard and long as I can and it makes me look weird. I’m on the right mode but I just have to put it as loud as I can to actually play the notes and kinda annoys my parents ITS JUST TOO MUCH BUGS
  • Please fix this.

    Hi. I just got this today after three years and it doesn’t seem to have gotten any better. As soon as I tried playing middle C, it says I’m playing B, and it’s not very helpful if you’re a beginner. I saw the adds for this while watching piano tutorials, and what do y’know, nothing got better. And the prices for the premium seem extra for an app that won’t even pick up the notes. I don’t mean to sound rude but these are things that need to be fixed. I hope this helps both readers for when they pick the app and the developers for the next update.
