Interactive Piano and the iPad

Download the free Piano Apprentice app from iTunes, sit your iPad on the portable keyboard and you have yourself a Piano! Simple as that. If you have never played piano before let the keyboard light up and show you how to play.

With a free piano teaching app, you cannot go wrong. And whilst you are still in learning phase and making more noise than music, plug in the headphones so you can keep your 'music' to yourself.

Whilst it may never replace traditional piano lessons this is a great way to start. It won't turn you professional overnight but it is a great way to play and enjoy music.

If you do not know the words, just like typical karaoke style, the words appear on the iPad screen. The mircophone comes with a code for 10 free songs and if you want more just simply download more from iTunes or use your own music.
