    Do not install this app on your device Sep 29, 2021

    By fuck off
    I feel like the app developers got the app to do the bare minimum and just left it at that. The app has minimal feature. The app is constantly not recognizing notes for idk what reason. I would play a note 4 times and then it wouldn’t recognize it the 5th time. The app would also freeze and lag and the most inconvenient times. I even contacted customer service and they were mo help at all. They refused to address the actual problem and kept asking the same redundant and irrelevant questions.

    Lost $149 it's a scam, beware! Feb 8, 2021

    By David Wong
    They give you a 7 day free trial. After that they charge you $149. I was aware of that so I tried to cancel on day 6. Guess what? There's no way to cancel because technically you're on a trial and not signed up. It doesn't show up anywhere that I'm signed up so I can't cancel. I went through the app, through Google play store and paypal and nothing showed. Even support said it probably means I'm not signed up. Now guess what? This morning my account miraculously appeared. Along w $150 charge.

    Although I really don’t like all of the songs offered (because my children shouldn’t listen to some of them) I do admit this app has been really great for me personally. I was about to hire a piano teacher and found out it was $50 per session for my little family. If I would have gone through with it, would have been $1200 per year for 2 sessions per month. I came across simply piano randomly while looking for piano lessons online, and after session 1 I decided $150 was way better than $1200. Best part is that after I learn something I can practice what I learn with my children and they in turn can start their practicing on the app separately from mine. If you add up the costs this app is 100% worth it. I do wish they offered more child friendly or non lyrical songs on here. It would be nice to have a choice to learn more classical music vs modern, I’m a woman of faith so it’s hard to listen to some of that stuff. I just turn down the volume and go for it though just to get through. Hoping in the future they are able to offer different options for those who don’t like that music in their home. Modern or Classical options please! I keep reading reviews that comment everything’s expensive for subscription- please read my review again. An actual teacher costs far more!

    Ok so if you are like me and have been looking for someone around your area that teaches piano but they are too overpriced or you simply just can’t find anyone who is professional enough please just stop and get this app. It’s only like $10 USD a month and teaches skills much faster than finding an expensive piano teacher who will just keep teaching you the basics for months. This is like my 5th or so day playing and I’m surprised to say I can already read sheet music very well and I’m already playing whole songs with both hands. Don’t listen to the reviews that are complaining about the fact that this costs any money at all because this is teaching things that you would usually have to pay a TON more to learn. It is incredibly cheap and works wonders. Like I said, stop waisting your time looking for piano teachers because this app will probably teach you better than a teacher could believe it or not. 100% 5 stars!! I wish I could give more!! I am so thrilled that I can finally play my piano after years of wishing I could!! I definitely see myself using this app for years instead of ever getting in person lessons!!! Never been so satisfied with an app in my life there are like no flaws!!!! :D Happy piano playing! ❤️❤️❤️

  • No Regret At All (Really Great App) Sep 1, 2020

    By Graceskyoo
    Technically, I would just rated 4 stars for this app since there is always room for improvement. However, I rated it 5 stars for a very personal reason. I learned to play piano on and off throughout my childhood but gave it up during my mid teen. Thinking I will never be able to play perfectly, I even began to hate the instrument since it kept reminding me that I have no musical talent. I even tried to avoid anyone who can play like my friends and cousins (when they play). However, I have come to realise that nothing is actually stopping me from finding musical talent but myself. So now almost 28, I decided to start again through this app. I initially hesitated due to the price and that often times, subscriptions are hard to cancel. But surprisingly, I have come to love it. Now playing it almost everyday whenever I can, the house is filled with simple melodies. I don’t mind not becoming professional as long as I can play for my parents, especially my father. He has always hoped that one day, his children will touch the keys again. I recommend this to anyone who are struggling to reconcile with piano and music. Keep the app running for old iOS please!! Some of us still use old iPads. ❤️🙏🏻

    I absolutely loved this apps design and functionality with my piano. The only reason I decreased the star value to 3 was because I had to stop using after the tutorial. The app only offers block plans. This would be affordable to me if I had an option to pay monthly even if the price was a little higher, however at the starting plan being $74 currently that's a bulk amount I can't afford all at once. I hope in the future this become available.

  • I like the app but doesn’t work sometimes.. Jul 5, 2018

    By CoolUnicorn11
    The app is helpful and easy to understand. Which I do like, however, the app detects I’m playing a whole different key. It is hard to learn the piano on this app when it is saying you are playing a key wrong. I’ve learned a lot from this app but it is frustrating I have to play the key multiple times to move on. I’ve studied each key, to make sure it wasn’t me playing the wrong key, but it wasn’t. On the bottom of the screen it shows the keyboard, and when you play a key it shows which one you are playing, so when i play the key it wants me to play, it says I’m playing a different one. And to move on, I have to play a key that isn’t required. But on the bottom of the screen It says I’m playing the correct key. to play, I either, play the wrong key and it moves me on, or keep playing the right key over, and over, again and then it moves me on. Sometimes it doesn’t even move me on so I HAVE to play the incorrect key. So this will not help me become a better pianist by telling me the correct key is the wrong key, and the wrong key is the correct key. So I think they should fix that. But other than that it’s is a nice app. It is helpful other than the wrong key thing. It’s easy to understand which is great for young kids who want to learn by them self, like myself. But I really hope they fix that so I can give them a way better rating. If this wasn’t a problem I would give them a 5/5.

    First, I want to be clear this app is not free. And nor should anyone expect it to be. You get the first section free to get a feel for piano by learning the first few notes but this is a paid app. Second, the cost is in the long run, cheaper than paying a person for 25 to 35 a week for only a 30 minute session. For the year subscription it is 149.99. You move at your own pace. We use this app for a few different people. Highly recommend for serious learners only.
  • this whole thing it will tell you everything you need to know Oct 30, 2021

    At first you will get like a couple seconds maybe minutes of trying this app and you’ll get the first two seconds off and then you need to continue the trial not the child but like something fun to buy premium and this is kind of like normal piano lessons but online if you want to get the whole year one is $143 I think so if you’re willing to pay that much for this do it it’s all you but if you’re not willing to pay for it then don’t get it you’ll never be able to continue playing after the last part of the night the last part but the second to last part so if you want to continue doing that buy it done easy over with continue if you don’t wanna do it then you’ll just get the forest for five of the practice and then you can’t do anything else so what you need to do is delete it or buy it you can’t do both or you can’t just do it for free so I was pretty bummed out myself I am pretty young like am I tween years but if you are willing to pay a lot of money do it it’s not a lot of money if you really think about it the the first three months one not the first three months but one of them is three months you’re paying at least $25 a month for it soIt’s it’s that that’s that so if you want to do that do it Lastly look at all the other reviews before you download it I’ll tell you other things

    Things to know before you install: 1 You CANNOT no matter what the simply piano ads say, learn piano in a month. It takes years to become fluent. 2 This app is for extreme beginners. Do not expect to learn much more than very very simple notes unless you buy premium. I do not recommend this app unless you only want a 5 minute video lesson for free. Go on YouTube and find someone who knows what they are doing and can teach you, not this app.
  • Jan 23, 2022

    By MikachuTheKrayZ
    The ads make this app looked really helpful and convenient and you're excited to start. And when you download the game, it seems like the real deal. But after you finish the basics, you realize that you need premium to do literally anything else. All you can learn is the notes C, D, E, F, and G. The ads are very deceiving.

    It's an ok app, (you do have to pay) but no matter how close it is to the speakers, I couldn't get it to recognize the note, even at full blast volume. Also, sometimes when I make a mistake and start over on a song, it thinks I messed up again when my hands weren't even touching the keyboard, and it sends me straight to practice mode.
  • Jan 4, 2022

    By Brittany McCracken
    Update: I initially gave this app 5 stars because I found the free lessons helpful. After 10 minutes of lessons, I was prompted to review it. After I did, there was no free content left. So plan on paying for it if you're serious. I've no idea how they handle adding the second hand in the lessons. I literally learned and practiced 5 notes. Also, the only way to pay for it is through PayPal, and I don't have a PayPal account. I would prefer being able to pay with Samsung Pay.

    This app is not great for non-beginners. I am an intermediate piano student and was hoping to learn pop songs and jazz chords. This is not part of the free trial, so I paid. But it tells me I first have to complete "essentials 3" which is really long and tedious, teaching me things like the C major scale and dotted quarter notes. This is well below my level and a waste of my time. There really should be a way to quiz out of this.
  • This game is so stupid!😩😡 Aug 11, 2021

    By Julka shadow
    I just spent a while going through as many piano games as I could most of them said theyAre free but then they make you pay as soon as you start the game but simply piano it makes you think you can pay for this to get a premium access to a whole bunch of their stuff and then you can say you don’t want to in so it’ll start up the game like normal and then once you’re almost done with the basics it tells you you have to pay to get done with the rest of the game and it doesn’t even let you learn the rest. I feel like this game is just trying to Clickbait people into saying it’s free but you can pay if you want to and then it ends up being completely lying it makes me so mad and I kept on trying to play and my sound on my keyboard was almost turned all the way up and it kept on saying that I couldn’t pick up my sound because either the microphone wasn’t working or my keyboard was too quiet. So basically it’s a scam and it has bugs😡🤬and I’m just so glad that I didn’t have to pay for it and I deleted it before I actually got desperate. Because I’ve heard a lot of people spreading rumors saying that this takes your data and uses it for its own reasons so basically it’s taking your private information and stealing it but I’m pretty sure those things aren’t true so how about you just download the game and try it for yourself but don’t pay for it yet! Only do it if you’re 100% sure it’s worth it and there’s no other way you can learn

    . I figured out me just making random noises made the key on the tablet go off (keep in mind I have a real Piano) and the amount of money you have to spend just to play other songs then the beginning lessons is horrible. They should at least have more lessons for beginners they move so fast through it.over all this app sucks
  • I’m Disappointed. Oct 9, 2020

    By Lia Anne
    When I got this game I was excited, super excited, but not long after that I got really disappointed, let me explain why. So I downloaded thinking, this is awesome, I’m gonna learn how to play piano and be able to read the music. I was super pumped about it so I got on right away, when you go in they have you creat a account which was super easy and I had no trouble with it at all, though It did ask if I wanted to go premium and of course I put no because I don’t have the money to spend on an app, I mean if I had the money for the app I would just go to an actual piano lesson, not to mention the prices are pretty high, but anyway I was on the app for about 5 minutes because that’s how long the app says I should practice for, and then I was done, super easy super fun so I got off the app and went on with my day. Later that evening I wasn’t doing anything so I did it for another 5 minutes and after that I finished the first whole lesson and I was like wow I really like this app, I learned a lot and it doesn’t take forever, little did I know that after you finish the first lesson you have to go premium to do anything else and that makes me very frustrated because there are a lot of teenagers and kids and some adults who can’t afford lessons and this app might as well cost the same as an actual lesson. But I’m sure it’s great for the people that can afford it. I just think that they should say before you download that you only get one lesson.

    Although I really don’t like all of the songs offered (because my children shouldn’t listen to some of them) I do admit this app has been really great for me personally. I was about to hire a piano teacher and found out it was $50 per session for my little family. If I would have gone through with it, would have been $1200 per year for 2 sessions per month. I came across simply piano randomly while looking for piano lessons online, and after session 1 I decided $150 was way better than $1200. Best part is that after I learn something I can practice what I learn with my children and they in turn can start their practicing on the app separately from mine. If you add up the costs this app is 100% worth it. I do wish they offered more child friendly or non lyrical songs on here. It would be nice to have a choice to learn more classical music vs modern, I’m a woman of faith so it’s hard to listen to some of that stuff. I just turn down the volume and go for it though just to get through. Hoping in the future they are able to offer different options for those who don’t like that music in their home. Modern or Classical options please! I keep reading reviews that comment everything’s expensive for subscription- please read my review again. An actual teacher costs far more!

    Ok so if you are like me and have been looking for someone around your area that teaches piano but they are too overpriced or you simply just can’t find anyone who is professional enough please just stop and get this app. It’s only like $10 USD a month and teaches skills much faster than finding an expensive piano teacher who will just keep teaching you the basics for months. This is like my 5th or so day playing and I’m surprised to say I can already read sheet music very well and I’m already playing whole songs with both hands.

I learned to play piano on and off throughout my childhood but gave it up during my mid teen. Thinking I will never be able to play perfectly, I even began to hate the instrument since it kept reminding me that I have no musical talent. I even tried to avoid anyone who can play like my friends and cousins (when they play). However, I have come to realise that nothing is actually stopping me from finding musical talent but myself. So now almost 28, I decided to start again through this app. I initially hesitated due to the price and that often times, subscriptions are hard to cancel. But surprisingly, I have come to love it. Now playing it almost everyday whenever I can, the house is filled with simple melodies. I don’t mind not becoming professional as long as I can play for my parents, especially my father. He has always hoped that one day, his children will touch the keys again. I recommend this to anyone who are struggling to reconcile with piano and music. Keep the app running for old iOS please!! Some of us still use old iPads. ❤️🙏🏻

    First, I want to be clear this app is not free. And nor should anyone expect it to be. You get the first section free to get a feel for piano by learning the first few notes but this is a paid app. Second, the cost is in the long run, cheaper than paying a person for 25 to 35 a week for only a 30 minute session. For the year subscription it is 149.99. You move at your own pace. We use this app for a few different people. Highly recommend for serious learners only.
  • AMAZING! But one suggested. Jan 7, 2022

    By Natalie dodoy
    ( ◠‿◠ ) I loveeee this app. It’s amazing for all levels of piano players. I’m only 10, and I started about a year ago, but then my keyboard broke, and I got a new one for Christmas , and completely started over, now I just finished Essentials 3. But anyway, here is my suggestion, caould you make it so we can skip the reminder? I just started Intermediate 1, and I have to do left hand reminder, right hand reminder, left hand flash cards, right hand flash cards. And I JUST finished Essentials 3, and it’s so annoying when I already know all them, it is useful when you haven’t played in a week, but not if it’s five minutes after you finished the previous stage. But overall I would HIGHLY recommend getting this app, if your seven or up, I think it would be good, my little brother who is six, is struggling, but that’s not the app. I think smaller kids just don’t have the attention spand to play it. But if you have a keyboard or piano, and, well it’s COVID. So you can’t really get lessons, download this app! Though, you do have to pay money to unlock all the courses, you get to play the beginner course, and the payment isn’t really unreasonable for what the app gives. Over all, I give two thumbs up 👍 👍
  • Musically Challenged and LOVE this app! Jan 24, 2022

    By TheCavazosFamily
    The story of how this app came to be downloaded: I am not a fan of downloading apps or paying for apps, but here I am. My kids music teacher had them practicing Christmas songs to play for their recital on a keyboard that sat in my kitchen. I was amazed how fast my 7 year old and 10 year old were catching on, but me playing the piano seemed very far fetched as I never played instruments. Enter COVID. I was bored beyond belief and needed to diversify my daily activities. This app flashed as an ad on Instagram. I figured, “If they can do it, so can I” and pressed download. I have been practicing for the last 5 weeks, 4 times a week for 30 minutes (read: 1 hour…I lose track of time sitting behind the piano and while I don’t really have an hour to spare, now it’s less time scrolling IG and more time playing the piano). I somehow know how to read the notes and shockingly figured out how to play the basics. If I can do it, so can you!! My husband said it no longer sounds like I’m banging at the keys and when I’m learning songs and now they start singing along as I’m practicing. 🤯 This will be the biggest accomplishment I never set out to have, but here we are.

    I have tried multiple piano learning apps with my phone, and this one is the best. It truly works with you on your goals, I even learned the beginning of reading sheet music in less than 20 mins. my only critic is that the mic picks up multiple notes, but that could just be my phone's mic. all in all definitely worth using.
  • Amazing app Aug 29, 2020

    By 🕷🕷🕷🕸🕸🕸🦖
    So I just started playing this it’s really fine but at the same time a little bit hard but you should definitely try this app it is amazing I have it’s like a little bit ago but it was hard for me but now I’m seven and I was six when we first got it and I really love it now it’s amazing I had another one but then it start to not work so then I wanted to try this again and I’ve been playing for about 15 minutes now and I already love it so this is a very cool app you should definitely get it at first it will be a little bit frustrating but then you would actually be able to do a lot of stuff like it’s difficult and then you get used to it and then you will be able to do it so I recommend you to buy this app like it is amazing like when I first started I didn’t know how to play it but now I do so it’s really amazing is it home to me only in 15 minutes so you should deathly get this app and if you were kid reading this you should show your mom and you should deathly get it like it is amazing when I first started it was just difficult but then you’ll get used to it so you should get it this app is amazing🤪🤩

    I take piano lessons for irl, and I downloaded the app for fun and I figured I'd try the trial membership just to see what premium was all about. I like the app because it's Fun when your bored and it's overall great app to play piano with. Thier customer service is exceptional too, I was not aware it would automatically charge after the trial for premium so I got a nice 150$ surprise charge, after sending them a message they refunded my money in less than 5 minutes.
  • Dyslexic help please Dec 9, 2021

    By Ditto3D
    Hey so I have dyslexia, and it was really really hard for me to learn how to read when I was younger and I’m experiencing the same thing with learning the piano and that’s why I never learned it when I was younger and stop taking lessons and this app has really helped in a lot of areas and it’s almost perfect but please I really really beg of you simply piano team to put in a one color line somewhere in the notes to help differentiate line 3 and five out of the others because my eyes and mind gets so so confused on where the note actually is especially now that I am in essentials 2 and there’s way more notes now if you could have that toggle feature somewhere I would really really appreciate it doesn’t have to be a drastic difference it just Has to be enough difference for my mind to not start scrambling all the lines in notes together into one and to create some contrast and if you could change it also to the finger position having the letter next to the number too if you could have that as a toggle on and off that would should be a tremendous help because I really understand where the C and D key are don’t need help anymore with that but the rest I do. would love if it could gradually disappear as I got more comfortable and made the piano 2nd nature
  • Questioning This Download Just A Tad Oct 23, 2021

    By Orange Sloth Frog
    I’m really sorry to complain, because I can understand that some things aren’t avoidable. But I guess I should jump straight in. So, I downloaded this app after seeing the ad maybe a million times. I open it and I just created an account and a profile. Not bad, right? I do an entire lesson, and I am already learning a lot. Then before I can even finish it, it offers me the subscription. I just x-ed out of it thinking that I could just continue without the full version, but no. It won’t let you do ANYTHING. This is so disappointing, because their competitors, Ultimate Guitar are already doing way better. Ultimate Guitar, which has a piano feature, is cheaper and is useable without the subscription. Additionally, the addition of a placement test might be helpful. Other than that, I have no complaints and I would like to congratulate the people at Simply Piano on a successful app, just maybe you all might want to work on making it more affordable and useable in a limited version for those of us not looking to spend $12-$20 a month on an app. (Also, this is coming from an almost 13 year old who asked her parents for this and that said “Absolutely not! That’s the most ridiculous price ever!”)
  • Jan 17, 2022

    By Felicien Kalonda
    A really great app. It helps you with your piano skills and let's you take your piano skills step-by-step and helps you if your lost. on of my favorite apps to use in my free time. I just wish the premium version was free. 😔
  • Fun but raging Jan 6, 2021

    By javeryh
    So I chose the blue path, and when I was trying to play somewhere over the rainbow, it legit wouldn’t show the notes and when I tried again it somehow thought I needed to play the 16 steps again before playing the song. Developers, if you read this, please respond and PROMISE me you’ll make it so if you’ve already completed the steps and are on the song and you exit or it glitches, you don’t have to go through complicated and long steps. I JUST WANTED TO MOVE ON, ITS NOT THAT HARD, THANKS FOR NOTHING. Besides from that, I recommend you Simply Piano. It gives you a very confident boost and a very good start. Even if your just doing Simply Piano for fun, and you don’t want to learn anything, you are. I’m up to F position, I take piano lessons, but none as good as virtual lessons. Well, technically, I do have virtual lessons because of the big fad sickness, COVID-19, but I mean not talking to anyone or being corrected to harshly or having homework. Oh, the homework is a bonus. Well, in my opinion I have homework from an APP, but that’s just me. And if you want homework from Simply Piano, try everyday at 3:30 reading sheet music. Anyhow, very good confident start, and I hope you respond to my raging. This is getting pretty long so imma end it here. But listen to me.

    By Venita Durante
    I like this a lot but I think that the program can allow for a bit more practice before moving onto new keys. Not sure maybe there is a method to the programs madness. I am learning I just wish there was a practice mode or function where a person could click to simply practice what was learned. you know like on Mavis Beacon.
  • Amazing and fast to learn, but… Sep 24, 2021

    By ϔ
    So I think this app is amazing for how much easier and more enjoyable it is than any other alternative that I’ve tried, and it’s been really easy for me to learn and how fast it goes though. I do have some problems I want to point out though, such as sometimes when I get introduced to something, they don’t explain it before first showing something sometimes, and it isn’t much of a problem for me at least, but it can make things more difficult sometimes. Also sometimes when I’m playing, the notes will automatically think they heard me play when in reality I didn’t, and it just skips notes and I need to skip ahead to keep playing, and it gets aggravating for me because I want to be able to do lessons on my own pace, and this bug isn’t very helpful. Idk if it’s something wrong with the calibration if I’m able to change that, or if it’s something else. Either way, this app is still very cool, and it has made me very happy to finally start learning piano again, and is also in general making my life more pleasant especially in the time I’m in school, making me feel more confident in my schooling. Over all, an amazing app, with its every day bugs that can be fixed.
  • It was good at first but then Nov 22, 2021

    By trust me ik ik what i am doing
    So one night I was playing a game and this ad shows up and it’s for simply piano so I was like you know what let me just get it because I was kind of bored and didn’t really have anything else to do I grab my keyboard piano thing out and get it set up and then I downloaded the app and it loaded and then it give me a few lessons and let me create a profile create multiple profiles what age you are I really liked that it was cool you know I really liked their lessons were like really helpful and they went slow like they actually helped me to do it but once you finish most of them like the first big lesson and then you choose a song it says that you have to pay which I just feel that is dumb because I wanted to have fun and just experiment this I have a new hobby but literally it cost money I know that’s what games are kind of for but I was really hoping that this one like didn’t have money requirements because I actually did want to play piano and like a learn how to cause I’ve always wanted to but like they just like I thought I could do it but then after I saw we had to pay I was just no so if you wanna learn somethings just just go on there do the first lesson but you’re not pay for it it’s not worth it and you shouldn’t have to pay for something an app to do this I think it was really dumb why they did this so I liked it but then I had to pay so I didn’t

    I absolutely loved this apps design and functionality with my piano. The only reason I decreased the star value to 3 was because I had to stop using after the tutorial. The app only offers block plans. This would be affordable to me if I had an option to pay monthly even if the price was a little higher, however at the starting plan being $74 currently that's a bulk amount I can't afford all at once. I hope in the future this become available.
  • I like the app but doesn’t work sometimes.. Jul 5, 2018

    By CoolUnicorn11
    The app is helpful and easy to understand. Which I do like, however, the app detects I’m playing a whole different key. It is hard to learn the piano on this app when it is saying you are playing a key wrong. I’ve learned a lot from this app but it is frustrating I have to play the key multiple times to move on. I’ve studied each key, to make sure it wasn’t me playing the wrong key, but it wasn’t. On the bottom of the screen it shows the keyboard, and when you play a key it shows which one you are playing, so when i play the key it wants me to play, it says I’m playing a different one. And to move on, I have to play a key that isn’t required. But on the bottom of the screen It says I’m playing the correct key. to play, I either, play the wrong key and it moves me on, or keep playing the right key over, and over, again and then it moves me on. Sometimes it doesn’t even move me on so I HAVE to play the incorrect key. So this will not help me become a better pianist by telling me the correct key is the wrong key, and the wrong key is the correct key. So I think they should fix that. But other than that it’s is a nice app. It is helpful other than the wrong key thing. It’s easy to understand which is great for young kids who want to learn by them self, like myself. But I really hope they fix that so I can give them a way better rating. If this wasn’t a problem I would give them a 5/5.
  • this whole thing it will tell you everything you need to know Oct 30, 2021

    By mj46😇
    At first you will get like a couple seconds maybe minutes of trying this app and you’ll get the first two seconds off and then you need to continue the trial not the child but like something fun to buy premium and this is kind of like normal piano lessons but online if you want to get the whole year one is $143 I think so if you’re willing to pay that much for this do it it’s all you but if you’re not willing to pay for it then don’t get it you’ll never be able to continue playing after the last part of the night the last part but the second to last part so if you want to continue doing that buy it done easy over with continue if you don’t wanna do it then you’ll just get the forest for five of the practice and then you can’t do anything else so what you need to do is delete it or buy it you can’t do both or you can’t just do it for free so I was pretty bummed out myself I am pretty young like am I tween years but if you are willing to pay a lot of money do it it’s not a lot of money if you really think about it the the first three months one not the first three months but one of them is three months you’re paying at least $25 a month for it soIt’s it’s that that’s that so if you want to do that do it Lastly look at all the other reviews before you download it I’ll tell you other things
  • An unforgivable frustration Apr 26, 2020

    By Elisionsly
    I really like this app. It has taught me a lot, and I think it is a great tool for learning. However, there is a major flaw that drives me insane every time i use it. No matter how quiet the room, how loud my keyboard is, or how on tempo I am, it constantly does not pick up some notes (mostly eighth notes—specifically if they are in a sequence of eighths). I’ve been playing music for a while, so I know my beats and tempos. I’ve tried everything from making sure the room is silent when I play to turning my keyboard up to the max (deafening) volume. It seems to help a little bit when my keyboard is very loud, but the problem still persists. It’s just so frustrating when I just need one more star, but I can’t get it because the app won’t pick up notes that I know I’ve played correctly. Also, I’ve noticed that some songs seem to be a little off. I understand them from a musical point of view, but it may trouble a new learner. They might not be able to hear the medley and play something different during the first few lessons. I was a little long winded, I apologize. The pros do outweigh the cons with this app—as long as you’re okay with listening to (honestly) bad singers. I’ve been able to learn a lot and it has helped me with playing with both hands. I’d give 3.75 stars. 4.5 if the note thing gets fixed.
  • Jan 14, 2022

    By Madison Griffin-Jones
    This app was great, but I don't like the fact the ads boost this app up especially for young teens and children all for that to stop after the first few lessons. Lots of parents are able to afford the prices because they are very cheap, but refuse to pay because they could learn on their own or with videos.
  • Good but why do you have to pay? May 7, 2020

    By xX_WolfyPlayz_xX
    The simply piano app is good, but why do you have to pay? I know that sounds like a dumb question but why? I don’t know why you have to pay to learn piano. For example you want to learn piano but you just can’t effort it every month or you just don’t know how to pay it. Like, if you just want to learn piano you can just make it free. It’s just that I think it’s better to make it free so more people can learn piano without paying. But, what I do like about simply piano is at the start, when you download the app you get this guide and then you start learning piano but, when your done doing the piano stuff or the touch screen piano you get this guide about you can pay or get a free trial but, I just don’t get why. Like, if you want to learn piano and you do all the piano stuff and you feel like your ready to move on but you don’t want to pay or have your credit car information on the app. If you don’t want to pay or have your credit card information on the app you can’t learn piano and your just stuck there repeating the same stuff that you learned on Simply piano. I don’t get why you have to pay. But, that’s why I don’t think you should pay just to learn piano. But, if you don’t agree with me I understand.
  • Jan 19, 2022

    By Kynzie Alvarez
    Things to know before you install: 1 You CANNOT no matter what the simply piano ads say, learn piano in a month. It takes years to become fluent. 2 This app is for extreme beginners. Do not expect to learn much more than very very simple notes unless you buy premium. I do not recommend this app unless you only want a 5 minute video lesson for free. Go on YouTube and find someone who knows what they are doing and can teach you, not this app.
  • Jan 4, 2022

    By Brittany McCracken
    Update: I initially gave this app 5 stars because I found the free lessons helpful. After 10 minutes of lessons, I was prompted to review it. After I did, there was no free content left. So plan on paying for it if you're serious. I've no idea how they handle adding the second hand in the lessons. I literally learned and practiced 5 notes. Also, the only way to pay for it is through PayPal, and I don't have a PayPal account. I would prefer being able to pay with Samsung Pay.

    By Patricia Degner
    This app is not great for non-beginners. I am an intermediate piano student and was hoping to learn pop songs and jazz chords. This is not part of the free trial, so I paid. But it tells me I first have to complete "essentials 3" which is really long and tedious, teaching me things like the C major scale and dotted quarter notes. This is well below my level and a waste of my time. There really should be a way to quiz out of this.

    By Rachel Lynn
    At first I enjoyed the app. Then over time it started lagging and being off beat for no reason. Also learned that you have to pay to get past the basics. Some bugs need to be fixed plus would prefer the upfront knowledge of the cost of playing this app beyond basics.
  • Jan 14, 2022

    By Chonks
    This app is great and it teaches well but it is misleading. All the ads make it seem free but literally everything is behind a pay wall. This would be fine but it's a subscription not an upfront cost. Even if you wanted to pay monthly you can't do that, it's only 3 months, 5 months, and one year plans.

    Cant get it to work on my daughters tablet. I try setting up a profile for her and it tells me to "check my internet connection" while i am sitting at Home ON WiFi. Her tablet isn't on a mobile network plan, but i dont see how that should matter when i am on my home wifi. I will say 2 stars rather than 1 only because i was really looking forward to trying it out. The only thing i was actually able to look at was choosing an avatar, and my only suggestion there is needs more kid friendly option

    Do not install this app on your device Sep 29, 2021

    By fuck off
    I feel like the app developers got the app to do the bare minimum and just left it at that. The app has minimal feature. The app is constantly not recognizing notes for idk what reason. I would play a note 4 times and then it wouldn’t recognize it the 5th time. The app would also freeze and lag and the most inconvenient times. I even contacted customer service and they were mo help at all. They refused to address the actual problem and kept asking the same redundant and irrelevant questions.

    Lost $149 it's a scam, beware! Feb 8, 2021

    By David Wong
    They give you a 7 day free trial. After that they charge you $149. I was aware of that so I tried to cancel on day 6. Guess what? There's no way to cancel because technically you're on a trial and not signed up. It doesn't show up anywhere that I'm signed up so I can't cancel. I went through the app, through Google play store and paypal and nothing showed. Even support said it probably means I'm not signed up. Now guess what? This morning my account miraculously appeared. Along w $150 charge.

    The ads make this app looked really helpful and convenient and you're excited to start. And when you download the game, it seems like the real deal. But after you finish the basics, you realize that you need premium to do literally anything else. All you can learn is the notes C, D, E, F, and G. The ads are very deceiving.
  • Dec 31, 2021

    By Meehan
    It's an ok app, (you do have to pay) but no matter how close it is to the speakers, I couldn't get it to recognize the note, even at full blast volume. Also, sometimes when I make a mistake and start over on a song, it thinks I messed up again when my hands weren't even touching the keyboard, and it sends me straight to practice mode.
  • This game is so stupid!😩😡 Aug 11, 2021

    By Julka shadow
    I just spent a while going through as many piano games as I could most of them said theyAre free but then they make you pay as soon as you start the game but simply piano it makes you think you can pay for this to get a premium access to a whole bunch of their stuff and then you can say you don’t want to in so it’ll start up the game like normal and then once you’re almost done with the basics it tells you you have to pay to get done with the rest of the game and it doesn’t even let you learn the rest. I feel like this game is just trying to Clickbait people into saying it’s free but you can pay if you want to and then it ends up being completely lying it makes me so mad and I kept on trying to play and my sound on my keyboard was almost turned all the way up and it kept on saying that I couldn’t pick up my sound because either the microphone wasn’t working or my keyboard was too quiet. So basically it’s a scam and it has bugs😡🤬and I’m just so glad that I didn’t have to pay for it and I deleted it before I actually got desperate. Because I’ve heard a lot of people spreading rumors saying that this takes your data and uses it for its own reasons so basically it’s taking your private information and stealing it but I’m pretty sure those things aren’t true so how about you just download the game and try it for yourself but don’t pay for it yet! Only do it if you’re 100% sure it’s worth it and there’s no other way you can learn

    . I figured out me just making random noises made the key on the tablet go off (keep in mind I have a real Piano) and the amount of money you have to spend just to play other songs then the beginning lessons is horrible. They should at least have more lessons for beginners they move so fast through it.over all this app sucks
  • I’m Disappointed. Oct 9, 2020

    By Lia Anne
    When I got this game I was excited, super excited, but not long after that I got really disappointed, let me explain why. So I downloaded thinking, this is awesome, I’m gonna learn how to play piano and be able to read the music. I was super pumped about it so I got on right away, when you go in they have you creat a account which was super easy and I had no trouble with it at all, though It did ask if I wanted to go premium and of course I put no because I don’t have the money to spend on an app, I mean if I had the money for the app I would just go to an actual piano lesson, not to mention the prices are pretty high, but anyway I was on the app for about 5 minutes because that’s how long the app says I should practice for, and then I was done, super easy super fun so I got off the app and went on with my day. Later that evening I wasn’t doing anything so I did it for another 5 minutes and after that I finished the first whole lesson and I was like wow I really like this app, I learned a lot and it doesn’t take forever, little did I know that after you finish the first lesson you have to go premium to do anything else and that makes me very frustrated because there are a lot of teenagers and kids and some adults who can’t afford lessons and this app might as well cost the same as an actual lesson. But I’m sure it’s great for the people that can afford it. I just think that they should say before you download that you only get one lesson.

    So all of a sudden every ad I have is a simply piano or simply guitar ad so I thought I have a keyboard in my basement I'll try this. YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THE WHOLE GAME! You get the first lesson free and everything else you have to pay for, A premium subscription. I bet this app is wonderful and it's just us the ad say and really does work but it's just another thing I have to pay for, I might as well pay for lessons again.

    Overpriced app. After a few minutes of playing, it's either a minimum of $75 for 3 months, or $150 yearly. Why not have fair pricing models so people can try it out to see if their kids take a interest instead of trying to collect it all upfront.

    I've seen a lot of ads from simply piano and I swear all of them promoted the idea that this app is completely free, so I decided to give it a shot because I've been wanting to learn how to play the piano for a while. Well, it turns out there's only a single free course which serves as an introduction, you only learn 5 notes. And the rest? Well that costs money. And it's not even a one time pay, it's a subscription. Anyways this app is totally not worth it unless you're willing to pay.
