    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.

    Had issue with my subscription and the additional charge of the year membership was taken from my account after I explained I don't want the membership and wasn't happy with losing money straight away they have refunded me and stopped the pending payment, couldn't fault the customer service, the app itself was good for a couple months but now I have a piano I am self taught and I can play very good and this company did inspire me to do so, so a big thank you to Joy tunes and your support.

  • I can’t say how much I love this app! Jan 27, 2021

    By bicoastalite
    I took some piano lessons as a kid and played for a few years. But I was never excited nor did I practice much. And, honestly wasn’t very good to at playing the piano. Forward 35 years (in the midst of Covid 19), I had an intense desire to play the piano. And I had the time to learn and practice! I purchased an electric piano online and downloaded Simply Piano. I realized as I went though lessons that I was relearning everything. And they do such a nice job of keeping me engaged. I was enjoying it! So much that I started to look forward to learning new lessons, which opened up more music to practice and etc. As much as I love classical music, learning and practicing modern songs that I quite well has been really fun. I can’t wait to learn the next set. And I can’t wait to get further along in the lessons to play more complex versions. The app isn’t perfect, sometimes I get frustrated when the app dings me for playing the wrong chord or tempo- when I am sure I didn’t. And it takes forever to get through it. But at the same time I guess I am getting practice... With that said, I do miss having real time feedback from a piano teacher and hope to hire one when it’s safe to do so! But bottom line is that even though the app does have an expensive subscription fee, I think it’s absolutely worth every penny. Thanks for helping me find my passion in piano!

    This app is literally so perfect like you get to learn basically the whole thing before you go to premium and it's just fantastic I downloaded this like a week ago and I already know a few keys and I can play really good with the keys that I've learned so far and it's really nice I recommended I literally knew nothing about clean the piano but it's something that I've always wanted to do and know that I'm doing it it feels so good 😊 once again this app is awesome.

    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!

    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 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.
  • 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🤪🤩

    This is good so I give it 5 stars, but you have to pay which makes me give it a 4 star and then, you hide like some things from public in your ads for example you tell them to download it but you don't say you have to pay! So I downloaded this for no reason. I thought it was free :\. Which forces me to give it a 3 star.

  • 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.

    This app is amazing help, for the basics, everything after you learn the basics requires premium, if you are willing to pay a monthly fee then go for it, this app will help you a lot, but if you are looking for something free, then keep searching.

    Almost into one year of using this app. Sadly I have so many issues with it. When the rythem gets faster it starts jumping from note to note. We bought a more powerful tablet just to accomandate. But its almost the same. Tried it on my even faster phone. Same issues. We bougt that midi adapter. Now it started to constantly change my tablets volume - that in turn changes the volume on my soundbar. Killing my hearing when suddenly blasting to 700%. Its a bummer after all those hours. -.-
  • Good app but w/ a MAJOR issue Mar 6, 2019

    By Jaimie Emily Rose
    Giving this 2 stars (generously) for how great of an app it COULD be; if my issue were fixed it’d be 5 stars. The app showed its potential and was great until about halfway into the first lesson. My audio all registered fine at first, passed all their audio sync tests, no issues. Out of the blue it was no longer detecting that I was hitting notes. In the app when you fail a part of the song 3 times it sends you into a practice mode with a metronome. Don’t get me wrong it’s a nice feature when needed. HOWEVER, I didn’t need it making it SO FRUSTRATING to keep having to repeat this painfully slow practice mode. I even had my mom who has been playing piano for decades sit and try to play the simple song and it did the same thing! There is nothing I could do at this point; if you can’t pass the song you can’t move forward in the app. The funny thing was on the practice mode it registered all the notes just fine, then it would go back into the regular song and would glitch again. I had to delete the app and start using Yousician which is good but limits you to only 10 minutes per day unless you pay. I don’t like it as much as I did this app which is a shame. Hopefully, this can get fixed as I saw a few other people mention similar issues.
  • Pls read if you’re getting this for your kid Dec 30, 2020

    By SammichTheSammichSammich
    I’ve been struggling to play piano for a while and I was like oh I should use this app! And you know what, it was decent until I needed to pay premium to continue on with my lessons. That’s a big no from me, but my little brother was super interested and he hasn’t played piano once in his life. So I thought well, I’ll get as much out of this as possible. I set up a new profile and everything, and thought he would at least learn a few things, but man it was way to fast-paced for him. The ads are all like “OMG THIS SIX YEAR OLD LEARNED HOW TO PLAY PIANO IN A FEW WEEKS” and my six year old housemate rage quit as soon as he was thrust into the side scrolling play along with the music thing. He’d been getting by by looking at screen, looking at hand, squinting, pressing key, moving on, which was pretty slow. I tried to calm him down but little brothers are the worst. A few days later he tried again, and got further, I guess. Let’s just say that taking a mini child through this app results in much angry piano smashing and “I PRESSED THAT KEY!!!!!” and tears. Basically, no, your toddler is not going to learn piano with this app. I’m sure there are more kid-oriented versions somewhere, but don’t believe the ads with a little baby jamming out to baby shark like a Mozart

    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!!

    The app is colorful, cute, and it really improves your music abilities. Might get the upgraded app since my kids adore playing the piano now. It's a simple electric keyboard, but works fine, you just need to leave phone close to one of the speakers. I really wanted this bc I play the piano b/c I can imitate a song just by listening, but don't know how to read notes, so this is a win for my family! I hope they come out with an advanced app after this one. Thanks Simply Piano 🥰

    Excellent app and a first class service. I bought a subscription for my 8 year old daughter and it was a perfect fit for her and helped her to learn some of the basics and few tunes even though her native language is Icelandic and her understanding of English is quite limited, but her attention has drifted to other things now which has more to do with her being a 8 year old instead of the app quality. Also I had to contact support once regarding payment issue which was resolved in <5 min on a Saturday morning !!! , but I have never experienced such high quality service for an app before.
  • Fun but raging Jan 6, 2021

    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.

    I love this app, it really boosts your piano skills. But sadly I don't have any cash so I couldn't get the premium subscription to keep on learning to play piano. I am now learning from books but really good app and people should 100% try. One thing I would recommend adding is learning how to read music from both (left and right) your hands then ask people to use subscription because when I got the app I learned how to only play with my right hand.
  • Great but can be frustrating Apr 22, 2021

    By spunkiesteffie
    I have enjoying using this to learn to play piano, and it has greatly healed, but as someone who has musical experience this app creates an major issue for me. As I am playing the practice pieces and the notes will also play of what I am to play, they are always a beat behind when I am supposed to play. This creates a major challenge when trying to learn something new as you are now having to not only focus on the positions/notes/rhythms being taught, but you are also having to use part of your focus to try and ignore the same melody you are trying to play being played a beat behind you. For me this is causing me to constantly mess up as I keep trying to play with the beat playing which puts me behind in my tempo, or it causes me to completely mess up a portion because i am trying to play what I see while hearing a different melody playing which ends up confusing me. It’s not bad once you know and understand what you are playing, but as a beginner piano player, this is very challenging and honestly becomes very frustrating when I keep messing up simple parts because I am hearing what I should be playing also playing in my ear a beat behind.

    Please can you add some way to search for specific songs, acts, or composers? The library is getting fairly large and a single scrolling list is no longer a great way to find things. This app is pretty good as far as it goes, but it does have limitations. Many of the songs really require the backing music/vocals to fill them out, which makes them less impressive for any kind of performance. Some just cut out at the end rather than ending (e.g. Don't Speak). Also, this is not going to teach you to read music very well. It doesn't cover key signatures at all, nor any of the common musical notations such as triplets. What it does is very good, and the practice/learning mode is the best of any app I've tried, but it could still be a whole lot more. Having finished the "course", it doesn't really offer anywhere to go from here. A second, more advanced app would be a very good idea.

    It's a very good app with very good lessons, I've never played keyboard in my life but I am already learning very fast thanks to this! There's a few technical issues, some notes I play aren't being correctly recognised by the app. Also in tutorial videos, the video does not start until after the guy has finished speaking. Very good app with some improvement to be made.

    This app was absolutely incredible! It was so easy to use and it gave step-by-step directions with no stress. But if I wanted to start the next lesson, I needed to sign up for a stupid premium. Tbh if I could just continue the next lesson for free, this would get 5 stars
  • 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 is good so I give it 5 stars, but you have to pay which makes me give it a 4 star and then, you hide like some things from public in your ads for example you tell them to download it but you don't say you have to pay! So I downloaded this for no reason. I thought it was free :\. Which forces me to give it a 3 star.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    It is really fun, and I really enjoy it. But there are only two problems I face. First is that android and ios are not synced up for this app which is really frustrating as now I get different outputs for bot of my parents phones. Second is its hearing power. I know it's an app, but it really is annoying when you are pressing the right keys but it takes the wrong ones. Except for that it is super awesome and I enjoy its colorful theme. Song requests of mine don't usually go through, but fun!

    This is a very good app to learn the piano very well. Its totally worth taking the full course. But I think they should give us more lessons in the free version. There are many people who have a piano but no money. They should make everything free. Because of exams and stuff I'm not paying. But I'd appreciate if the add more songs ànd stuff to the free version.
  • Good for learning but frustrating and oh my god the ads Apr 22, 2020

    By CinderCat<3
    I like the idea of the app but it could really be executed better. First I want to talk about the ads as a side note. I feel like it might be possible to grow fast but come on, not a five year old in less than a year with complete knowledge. I know a lot of little kids and none of them can sit down for long enough when they have a choice to play more than ten minutes each day on the piano. Tying into that, the app is frustrating. I swear, practice mode is nightmare fuel. And for a beginner it’s so hard to see which notes are which. I think it would be worth a feature that lets you see the letters corresponding to the placement on the staff if you choose to display it. Maybe the notes are just me but as a beginner I have trouble every time. Also having songs locked behind courses is frustrating. If I want to realize that I’m not ready or am ready I’ll do it before I finish a course. I like how you can slow songs down but the menu you can pull up is not ideal, especially if you are just pausing it to go do something. You have approximately two seconds to put you hands back in position. Good luck. Overall I’d say the app is kinda average.

    This app is amazing help, for the basics, everything after you learn the basics requires premium, if you are willing to pay a monthly fee then go for it, this app will help you a lot, but if you are looking for something free, then keep searching.

    Almost into one year of using this app. Sadly I have so many issues with it. When the rythem gets faster it starts jumping from note to note. We bought a more powerful tablet just to accomandate. But its almost the same. Tried it on my even faster phone. Same issues. We bougt that midi adapter. Now it started to constantly change my tablets volume - that in turn changes the volume on my soundbar. Killing my hearing when suddenly blasting to 700%. Its a bummer after all those hours. -.-
  • Good app but w/ a MAJOR issue Mar 6, 2019

    By Jaimie Emily Rose
    Giving this 2 stars (generously) for how great of an app it COULD be; if my issue were fixed it’d be 5 stars. The app showed its potential and was great until about halfway into the first lesson. My audio all registered fine at first, passed all their audio sync tests, no issues. Out of the blue it was no longer detecting that I was hitting notes. In the app when you fail a part of the song 3 times it sends you into a practice mode with a metronome. Don’t get me wrong it’s a nice feature when needed. HOWEVER, I didn’t need it making it SO FRUSTRATING to keep having to repeat this painfully slow practice mode. I even had my mom who has been playing piano for decades sit and try to play the simple song and it did the same thing! There is nothing I could do at this point; if you can’t pass the song you can’t move forward in the app. The funny thing was on the practice mode it registered all the notes just fine, then it would go back into the regular song and would glitch again. I had to delete the app and start using Yousician which is good but limits you to only 10 minutes per day unless you pay. I don’t like it as much as I did this app which is a shame. Hopefully, this can get fixed as I saw a few other people mention similar issues.
  • Pls read if you’re getting this for your kid Dec 30, 2020

    By SammichTheSammichSammich
    I’ve been struggling to play piano for a while and I was like oh I should use this app! And you know what, it was decent until I needed to pay premium to continue on with my lessons. That’s a big no from me, but my little brother was super interested and he hasn’t played piano once in his life. So I thought well, I’ll get as much out of this as possible. I set up a new profile and everything, and thought he would at least learn a few things, but man it was way to fast-paced for him. The ads are all like “OMG THIS SIX YEAR OLD LEARNED HOW TO PLAY PIANO IN A FEW WEEKS” and my six year old housemate rage quit as soon as he was thrust into the side scrolling play along with the music thing. He’d been getting by by looking at screen, looking at hand, squinting, pressing key, moving on, which was pretty slow. I tried to calm him down but little brothers are the worst. A few days later he tried again, and got further, I guess. Let’s just say that taking a mini child through this app results in much angry piano smashing and “I PRESSED THAT KEY!!!!!” and tears. Basically, no, your toddler is not going to learn piano with this app. I’m sure there are more kid-oriented versions somewhere, but don’t believe the ads with a little baby jamming out to baby shark like a Mozart

    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.
  • 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.
