Music is a craft that most people become interested in as kids. Many kids begin taking piano lessons early on, but as they get older, they stop. These kids grow up, life gets busy, a global pandemic happens, and suddenly there is no time to learn the piano. But, what about those adults who want to grow their piano abilities? Here are 3 apps that will help you master the piano:

1. Flowkey

“Flowkey” is a great piano app that can be used with iOS, Android tablets, and computers using a mic or a MIDI cable. This app offers online piano lessons for all piano playing levels, from beginner to master. Beginners will have to sit through a few short video lessons before beginning to play.

Overall, Flowkey offers excellent instructions and is very engaging. Users will run through each part of a lesson three times, and then they learn a song. This app provides a great plan to build up the users’ skills and abilities quickly! If you’re unsure what skill level you’re at, Flowkey lets you play around with the different skill levels to let you figure out what level you feel most comfortable in.

3. OnlinePianist

“OnlinePianist” is more of a way to learns songs online rather than a piano lesson app. This app offers a platform that provides song tutorials you can use once you know how to play the basics. It can be used on iOS, Android, and computers with a mic.

If you are more intermediate level, the app provides a dashboard to control many settings to your liking. For example, you can change the tempo, break down a song by each hand, and so much more.

The coolest thing about this app is that the “free mode” offers a wide selection of songs from famous pop artists to anime theme songs. However, the paid plan provides access to every piece across all your devices without losing access to them.
