I tried learning from youtube videos and reading articles about it but made little progress. I had few expections when I tried Playground Sessions and was pleasantly surprised. It not only teaches music theory, which is necessary to truly understand how to play, but also has interactive, hands on lessons from experts. Short of a personal tutor, this is probably the best way to learn to play."

      "Piano melody, at first sight, looks like a rudimentary, relatively simple app. This sort of app is by no means revolutionary: tens of apps already exist that are design to mimic piano keys on a touch screen. I don't like the app, and the reviews are around 4.0, reflecting a general liking of the app, but nothing too special. This is good for little kids to play around with, or initially develop interest in piano as a concept and interest. . For actually learning to play piano, find a real piano or a keyboard."

It will really expand your musical knowledge as you learn. You can keep it right in front of you on the keyboard as you practice."

      "A classic (at least for me). If you like playing music but don't own too many instruments. If you think you could be a decent composer. Or if you just like to make pretty sounds with your computer, this software is for you. To me it's the coolest thing in the world and I find that it gets my mind off any unpleasant thing I might be thinking of. Suddenly, you can play any instrument you fancy, tweak the sound to your liking, etc. The only problem is that I always end up spending way longer than I expected when I start noodling with it."

      "I have used GarageBand to make several simple instrumentals for a few friends of mine. It's a solid program! I do have a MIDI keyboard and it works well with GarageBand, but besides pulling the sounds from my keyboard; it probably isn't the best application for learning to play the Piano."

Even if you have no musical training whatsoever, this walks you through each step using simple, easy to use instructions. If you are serious about wanting to learn piano, you can either spend hundreds of dollars, not to mention travel, on a piano teacher, or you can simply download the PlayPerfect Music Practice Software in the comfort of your own home. For my money, I choose home."

I love the ability to record and analyze how to improve one's playing. It is also super reasonably priced, so anyone can grab a copy without breaking the bank."

People will learn better if they are learning to play something they like and are familiar with. What a great concept! Though the name of the site seems ambiguous to me. I don't get how it correlates with music lessons."
