App to learn piano: the 10 best on the market

Would you like to use an app to learn piano alone? There are indeed many on the market, but not all of them are the same!

To start, you need to define what you are looking for in piano learning: an app to learn the music you like on the piano? An app to learn how to decipher a score? An app to learn the basics of music theory without music theory? All this together?

Each application to learn piano offers a specific method, which corresponds to the expectations of a part of the learners.

To help you choose according to your objectives, here is an overview of the 12 best applications currently available on the market!

1 – La Touche Musicale (hundreds of free songs) 

Objective : learn the songs you love on piano

How to start this ranking without mentioning the only existing French application to learn piano? La Touche Musicale offers you a vast catalogue of music to learn piano (pop, hits, jazz, rock, rap, anime, video games, films, …) and offers you to learn them easily through an efficient, fun and intuitive method.

The main strong points of La Touche Musicale : the possibility to import on your account all your favorite musics in midi format and to be able to connect your piano to your computer to interact with the platform and learn very very quickly !

From a price point of view, it is without a doubt the most interesting application on the market: hundreds of musics totally free and 3,99€/month to have access to the whole catalog (1000+ musics).

2 – Perfect Piano (limited free version)

Objective : learn the songs you love on piano

Perfect Piano is a well thought-out application to learn the songs you love on piano. The catalog of music is less exhautistic than on La Touche Musicale, but the learning features and the “gaming” side make it really interesting.

The only real drawback: on this app to learn piano, you need several smartphones to have a piano with 88 keys (the piano is very small on a single smartphone).

3 – Piano teacher (limited free version)

Objective: to learn how to decipher a piano score

Piano Teacher is a good app to learn piano alone if you want to start deciphering sheet music. The goal here is to know how to decipher a score and understand how they are made up. The whole in a playful and gamified way. The score is here at the heart of the app, and the way to teach its knowledge is quite funny! If that’s your goal, test it, you’ll have fun!

Chordify-logo-green

4 – Chordify (paying, very limited free version)

Objective : learn the chords of the songs you love

Chordify is a clever platform that allows you to choose a video from Youtube and transform it into tablatures to learn chords of music on guitar or piano. Their transcription technology is very powerful and took several years of development, but the downside is that you won’t really be able to learn the music, but only its main chords.

However, if you are looking to simply tune your voice to these chords to practice your singing, jump at the chance!

5 – Online Pianist (free version limited to 30 seconds per song)

Objective: learn the tracks you love on piano

Online Pianist is a website and a mobile application that offers to learn music through a simple and intuitive interface. Its music catalog is very rich and it will be easy for you to find your favorite song.

Only downside: you can’t interact with the platform. Indeed, it is not possible to connect your piano to learn at your own pace.

6 – Synthesia (free version limited to a few musics)

Objective : learn the songs you love on piano

Synthesia is the oldest player on the market, but that doesn’t stop it from regularly updating itself! Synthesia offers the interesting feature of importing its own music in midi format, just like La Touche Musicale. This gives you an almost unlimited repertoire that you can build yourself.

It is also possible to connect your piano to interact with the platform.

Only downside: Synthesia is a software that can be downloaded and is therefore not available directly on the Internet (unlike all other applications mentioned here). It is therefore complicated to access the same account on your mobile phone.

7 – Skoove (25 free lessons, 400+ paid lessons)

Objective: learn music theory and scores

Skoove is a relatively new player in the market. Its value proposition is very simple: make you learn partition decryption through an intuitive interface.

The platform is well thought out and allows you to evolve progressively.

You can connect your piano to interact with the platform, making learning more motivating.

On the other hand, beware of your budget: Skoove costs 19.99€/month, making it (with Flowkey, the next application) the most expensive platform in this ranking.

8 – Flowkey (10 free musics, the other paying musics)

Objective : learn the songs you love + music theory

Flowkey is, like Skoove, a relatively new player in the market. The application emerged in 2012 and offers to learn both his favorite music at the piano but also to learn music theory through an interesting and visual method.

It is also possible to connect your piano to it for more ease on your learning.

However, like its colleague Skoove, its price is quite high (19,99€/month). So make sure you have the right budget before you get started!

9 – Simply Piano (1 lesson free, the other lessons + paying music)

Objective: learn music theory + decipher scores

Simply Piano is an application only available on phone and tablet. Its approach is qualitative: you learn music theory and the deciphering of scores through a (very long!) series of courses designed to evolve gradually and not to become demotivated.

It is also possible to connect your piano!

On the other hand, if you wish to avoid the score in your learning, go ahead, because the whole application is based on this principle!

pianu-logo

10 – Pianu (very limited free version)

Objective : learn the tracks you love + decipher the scores

Pianu is a web platform that offers you to learn music theory through a series of lessons and a catalogue of music.

The platform is not yet very optimized for learning but it promises great things for the future!

On the other hand, pay attention here again to the budget you need to have to learn on Pianu: 14$/month!

piano-companion-logo

11 – Piano Companion (very limited free version)

Objective: learn chords, scales, and correct finger placement.

Piano Companion is an original app since it provides you with unique tools such as a complete chord list allowing you to get your hands on the various chord possibilities, a scale dictionary, chord progressions and a complete set of tools that every “good” pianist should have at his disposal.

However, you won’t be able to play your favorite music or learn to decipher a score on this app, and that’s not its purpose! The app rather seeks to transmit the basics of music theory (chords and progression) so that you can improvise and compose afterwards. Nice initiative!

vivace-logo

12 – Vivace (limited free version)

Objective: learn how to decipher partitions

Vivace is a good app to familiarize yourself with sheet music. In spite of its interface which, at first glance, may seem a bit austere, the application offers a good, methodical and rigorous approach to learning via the score. Intermediate and beginner alike will find what they are looking for.

 In conclusion: before choosing from this list of apps to learn piano, don’t forget to set your goals. How would you like to learn piano? Would you prefer to learn the music you like? Know how to decipher a score? Learn the chords and scales to be able to compose or improvise?

By answering these questions, you will know exactly what you are looking for. And remember, it’s important to have fun while you learn! That’s what will make you succeed in progressing without seeing time go by and without demotivating you!
