As many of you know I am quite a music enthusiast and a bit of a musician myself. I love playing the piano and often find myself teaching family members and friends how to play. I’ve tried and enjoyed many an iPad piano app to varying levels of success, but other than the entertainment factor of playing along, I haven’t really found anything that really teaches someone how to play. So when I saw the ION Audio Piano Apprentice for the Apple iPad 2 , I instantly thought it was a great product.
The ION Audio Piano Apprentice is a 25 note lighted keyboard with touch sensitive keys that works with the free Piano Apprentice app in iTunes store. All you have to do attach the Piano Apprentice to your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch and follow the lighted keys with your fingers and before you know it, you’re learning to play the piano! On screen piano players can follow along to Emmy award-winning piano instructor, Scott Houston. While the keys on the Piano Apprentice light up, Scott’s hands are playing above on the screen, showing you the proper hand placement.
It is scheduled for release in early September for $99, this is one great product for any beginner, of any age.
Here is a brief introduction to Ion Audio’s Piano Apprentice and app.
As a music enthusiast who believes in the statistical facts linking academic achievement to the arts , I believe in the power of music as a teaching tool for children. If you happen to have an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, this is something that would be a lot of fun to have. Let us know what you think about it. We just might give a few away!
