    $89.99 is not something I can shrug off.
  • Free but I wouldn’t pay for it.

    I have a free premium trial of three months. I’m not impressed with the lessons and teaching style. There is one great section on sight reading for the right hand which was very well done. You learn the notes and how to read them and which hand to use and where they are on the keyboard.But there is nothing like that for the left hand or the bass clef. After that It’s just endless lessons where you learn snippets of music. Unfortunately this makes it very jumbled because there isn’t a formal teaching for the left hand. Additionally because the left is most often the weaker hand they have no focused sections for just strengthening the left hand coordination. it would be better to have at least one lesson on sight reading for the left hand so I can get it as well as the right hand. It is free but after a week of going through it it’s getting boring learning endless snippets of pieces which don’t really teach you very well what’s going on. It needs more formal music theory instruction like the ONE section on sight reading would be a big improvement. I.e. Why isn’t there sight reading part 2, part 3 and part 4? Or how to read all the notes other than the 5 they do in the sight reading section in the treble clef? I’m glad I’m also attending an in person piano class as this app really doesn’t tie it all together.
  • Terrible pricing

    By book is no. 1
    I understand that the piano lesson makers need money, but seriously, just make ads instead of premium, cause some people don’t like spending money on apps including me
  • Annoying

    Skoove becomes annoying very quickly. It has a great defect that made me stop playing with it just a couple of weeks after subscribing. Skoove does not allow you to browse through the scores, so that you are condemned to boredom in the “learn the keys” sections because you have to play note by note very slowly so that the software recognizes what you play before it takes you to the next “page.” In the “play on time” sections you have to go at whatever speed is set for the piece you are practicing (no tempo settings) and, worse of all is that you cannot practice each page because if you stop, it takes you back to the first one. The reason for this one star review is that, since I am using the app at least 5 updates have been released and these issues are still there despite fixes being requested by a number of users.
  • Poor app

    By Bloopdeedoop
    It’s a cute app but you won’t learn much more then what you can learn from a $5 Alfred’s Piano Library book. I immediately began with the advanced level to see just how advanced it was and the “advanced” level is what you learn on page 10 in any primer level book. Do not waste your time or money. Use YouTube it’s free AND it’ll actually teach you. This? Not so much. -A full time piano teacher of 25 students
  • Do not get the 7 day free trial on iTunes if you have a 3month trial from amazon

    I signed up for the 7 day free trial on iTunes trying to sign up for the 3 month trial. I was excited to use skoove with my new piano and missed that that the amazon code is only redeemable on the website and does not override the 7day trial with apple. I was charged $100 for a yearly subscription. Apple said talk to skoove and skoove said sorry, that’s between you and apple. This is my first experience with skoove and and apple, and so far I’m wishing I had not gotten either.
  • Great Idea, Very Poor Execution

    The title says it all. This app would be wonderful if it weren’t so fatally flawed in its design. Honestly, I’m giving it two stars because I got it as a free trial through the purchase of a keyboard. The app is rife with errors. It often doesn’t recognize when keys are hit and there are notational errors in a few of the tunes I’ve played. I definitely would not pay money for this app until it can perform as advertised.
  • Does not work with Midi input

    1
    By Borfswitch
    This app is unusable in its current state. The microphone mode does not consistently pick up the notes I play, and if I use a midi cable the app seems to think that I am holding down every key I press, causing it to fast forward through the notes instead of waiting until I play them. I’ve tested using a midi cable with other apps and had no problems. I contacted Skoove support about this issue, but so far they have not been able to resolve it.

    My subscription will expire on 7/26. I’m not interested in renewing this subscription. This happened once last year with auto renewal and I wasn’t able to stop the payment. I was told I authorized this auto renewal when purchased the app. Can you please help me to make sure this is canceled and will not charge my account for another year? Thank you Terence
  • Good but wish you didn’t have to pay

    I think this is a great app to learn how to play piano and I absolutely love it! But I don’t like the fact that you have to pay so much money for it😿😿 but that’s the only thing I don’t like about it
