Mobile Piano: 10 Apps That Teach You How To Play Piano

Remember when you were young, and you wanted to learn how to play the piano? There may have been a variety of circumstances that disallowed you from pursuing that passion. It might have had to do with lack of finances, lack of time, or a personal reason. Now that you’ve grown older and have responsibilities, you may be asking yourself if it’s still possible to make that dream become reality.

The answer is yes.

In this day and age, learning how to play the piano has never been so easy. Gone are the times when you needed a huge budget or a quiet area to practice. Technology has paved the way for us to chase our dreams and grab them by the horns, figuratively speaking. No matter how young or old you are, if you have a yearning to play the piano, a piano app on your phone is what you need.

What’s a Piano App? Piano applications for smartphones allow you to simulate playing a real piano, right from the comfort of your handheld mobile device. Piano apps have thousands of built-in popular music scores which you can listen to and learn to play, along with tons of settings that ensure your piano-playing experience closely mimics the real thing. Here’s a list we’ve compiled of some of the best piano apps for iOS and Android:
