This is a fully digital on-screen piano simulation that helps the user learn how to play at their own pace. The number of customization options here is immense and allows user total control over how they want to learn. 

Taking inspiration from the RockBand on-screen keyboard model, this software allows you to see what notes are upcoming on the track and learn how to get fingers into the correct position to ensure that you hit every note the first time. With the ability to play at your own pace and learn as you go, the song will automatically adapt to your skills and needs in real-time.

Additionally, with the 150 built-in songs, you can start to learn to play right away with no need to add any software or download anything. Still, this experience is fully customizable, and you can download any MIDI track and upload it to the software to play your favorite new song as it comes out.

This is one of the best tools on the market today for learning how to play the piano. With the ability to customize so much, this is a tool that is not only helpful for beginners but frankly is solid for experienced players as well that may not have regular access to sheet music. This is the total experience and is one of the most complete digital instrument tools that are available to buy today. Priced regularly at $40, this is a steal.
