In this video, I will review and compare three of the best music learning apps on Android and Apple iOS devices for beginners and intermediate piano students. Music learning apps are great for the average person who wants to learn to play the piano at home on their own, as a hobby and at their own pace without having to sell a kidney. With a plethora of choices in the App Store you might be wondering which music learning app is right for you and that’s what I aim to help you with today. I personally paid for full access, tried the lessons for two weeks to give you my independent and unbiased review and compare Simply Piano, Skoove and Flowkey. I’ll go over the pros and cons of each platform, compare the features and functionality as well as give you my personal thoughts on which one is the best value for money and the easiest to use. For a limited time only, I have links in the description for you to try out each and every one of these music learning apps for free. No obligations and no strings attached. So stop procrastinating, head down to the description, claim your free trial lessons and start your piano journey right now. First let’s talk about Simply Piano – a music learning app designed specifically for beginners and is aimed at people who have never played the piano before or who have very little experience. [Music] One of the biggest pros of Simply piano is the wide range of content available. There are hundreds of lessons on the platform covering everything from basic skills and chords to more advanced pieces like pop and jazz tunes. The app is bright and colorful with large visuals which young and senior learners will find less intimidating and more approachable. The app is divided into three modules – courses, songs and play. The courses section initially starts with a linear structure where you need to start with the basic keyboard skills before proceeding with the essentials and music theory lessons. After each stage of the course, you unlock up to a thousand songs with fully orchestrated backing tracks and use the skills you acquired in the corresponding course lessons to further reinforce what you’ve learned [Music] There is the option to slow down the backing track if you are not ready to play at full tempo. An animated keyboard shows you which notes to play in addition to displaying the notation. Two features which I miss is the ability to lower or mute the volume of the backing track and to turn on a metronome – which is available on competing apps. Upon completing the essential level of the course, you are presented with two options – the more traditional solo piano playing leading up to playing classical pieces or a contemporary chord-based syllabus teaching you pop, Jazz and Blues repertoire with lead sheets and chords to accompany modern tunes. Due to popular requests, Simply Piano now has a Play section of the app and this is most likely to compete with the very popular song libraries found on competing apps. The Play module is for those who just want to immediately get down to learning popular tunes but don’t want to go through a course first or those who already have some music knowledge. Play mode will teach you more than 1,500 tunes using one hand at a time and phrase by phrase, before teaching you to combine both hands together. While each tune will list which part of the course section you should have completed before attempting a level specific arrangement, it does not insist you complete a specific level of the course before being able to access the pieces unlike the song section simply piano has the largest selection of Disney pieces which is great for young students or those who are young at heart new Tunes are also added every week giving me loads of materials to work on I like the discipline that is required in the chords and songs but you you need to master each level before you can proceed to the next which is what a good real life piano teacher will insist on too the explainer video before the start of each lesson is valuable is used for the lower part of the piano the white key next to the two Black Keys is always the note C across the entire piano be sure to place it only one octave below middle C and not further away you get to unlock small five minute exercises which you can practice on the go with the on-screen keyboard adult Learners would love an option to turn off the animated sounds blips boops and Fanfare with each button press but that’s not possible in the current version while simply piano can be used with the on-screen keyboard or a traditional acoustic piano it truly shines when used with a physical keyboard like what I have here either with a wireless Bluetooth midi connection or a wired USB connection my list of recommended beginner keyboards and digital pianos that work well with music apps is in the description with prices starting from just 9.99 per month simply piano is definitely one of the most affordable compared to the competition but before you spend any money use the link in the description to try out Simply Piano for free next let’s see what Flowkey has to offer the app has two modules a course with lessons for learning the fundamentals of piano playing and an extensive song Library where you learn how to play songs however the lessons in the course section of flow key are non-linear and you are free to pick and choose whichever lesson you want to learn there are pros and cons to this a structured learning path ensures a student has the fundamentals covered in a disciplined manner but being able to jump to any lesson in the course gives students with some music knowledge a degree of flexibility the lessons in the course section of flow key are significantly less interactive than the lessons on simply piano [Music] while it is great for adult Learners young children are unlikely to benefit much from just watching a series of videos when you play keys that are further apart from each other your wrist makes a rolling motion this makes it easier to reach the keys while keeping your hand relaxed the presentation of the exercises and videos carry a more serious and formal tone than the competition you can expect lessons on music theory note reading coordinating both hands and scale playing in addition to a section on chords and improvising for those who enjoy a more modern contemporary music in my opinion Flowkey is stronger for learning using the song Library than the lesson section the thousands of songs in Flowkey’s library are arranged for varying degrees of piano skills and it is fun to see yourself improving from the beginner Arrangement and upgrading to the intermediate Advanced and finally the pro level arrangement for the exact same song a massive advantage of Flowkey is the ability to select any number of bars to practice on you can work on the left and right hand separately before trying to coordinate both hands together simply piano on the other hand allows you to practice predefined parts of a song such as the verse or chorus and you cannot select specific bars of the tune to work on while there is a weight mode in Flowkey where the music will only Advance after you play the right note and an option to slow down the tempo of a song to 50 or 75 percent there’s no option to learn the songs with a metronome is simply piano better than Flowkey that depends on your learning style I have a link in the description for you to try both simply piano and flow key for free before you decide which app deserves serves you ten dollars a month like simply piano flow key can be used with a traditional acoustic piano but the app truly shines when used with a keyboard either with a wireless Bluetooth midi connection or a wired USB connection I have links in the description to a cheap Ultra portable battery powered keyboard that supports both wireless Bluetooth midi wired USB connection and works very well with all the music apps in this video. A Flowkey subscription starts from just $9.99 a month but use the link in the description to try Flowkey absolutely free no obligations and no strings attached. Now let’s move on to Skoove which hasn’t got as much attention as it deserves the interface of the app is a mixture of the bright and large visuals of Simply piano but yet managers to maintain the formal feel that Flowkey has while the lessons are structured in a linear manner you are free to skip to whichever module interests you courses for beginners to intermediate and advanced students are available there is a dedicated course to improve your sight reading for those who want to be good at reading sheet music there is also a module for those who need to drill their chords and skills what is interesting in Skoove is there are courses dedicated to help you play specific genres of music such as Pop classical blues and Boogie Woogie as well as artists specific courses that teaches you to play Tunes from the Beatles Queen movie soundtracks and Christmas favorites a unique course found on school has lessons for those who aspire to write and produce their own music scoff is the only app on my list that has the option of turning on a metronome songs can also be slowed down to any Tempo in increments of 10 unlike the other apps which only have 50 and 75 percent you can practice separate hands foreign foreign to coordinate both hands together I love the constant feedback and encouragement from the app but you have the option to turn it off if you prefer less nannying the Achilles heel of Skoove is it has the smallest song Library among the apps on my list there are also fewer contemporary songs than the competition one of the unique features of Skoove is they have real piano teachers to give you one-on-one support if you’re having trouble with a particular exercise or technique and want some extra guidance a feature the other apps do not have just like the other apps Skoove can be used with an acoustic piano but works best with a keyboard or digital piano with a USB or wireless Bluetooth connection in my experience Skoove was the easiest to wirelessly connect by keyboard to my iPad Skoove starts from $12.49 a month which is a little more expensive than simply piano and flow key but you can head to the video description to get a free trial to see if Skoove works for you in conclusion all these apps work best for beginner to early intermediate students and less so for advanced students simply piano lessons are the most fun and I felt like I was playing a game Flowkey has a more formal interface while Skoove is a balance between Flowkey and simply piano schools lesson presentation was more effective for me but I am attracted to the ridiculously huge song libraries of Simply Piano and Flowkey here’s what I recommend go use the links in the description to sign up for the trial lessons on all three apps at the end of the trial period decide which works best for you and which app has the tunes you want to play you then cancel the trial subscription of whichever app doesn’t resonate with you you have absolutely nothing to lose while nothing beats attending in-person lessons with an experienced teacher sitting beside you one-to-one in-person lessons are expensive at up to 85 an hour where I live compared to a significantly more affordable ten dollars a month for a music learning app subscription will these apps make you a concert pianist definitely not but it will teach you to read notes play chords and use both hands to play many popular familiar Tunes in a fun engaging Visual and interactive manner one of the biggest advantages of Music learning apps is it is readily available 24 7 wherever you are and ultimately the most important thing is to find a platform that works for you and helps you progress as a musician go ahead and try out Simply Piano, Flowkey and Skoove for free using the links in my description.
