Can Piano Apps and Software Be As Good As Piano Lessons?

This is the year many of us are looking for a new hobby. Does that mean this will be the year you finally start playing the piano?

Yet we’re also still dealing with the aftermath of a pandemic. We spend more time than ever at home. Many local businesses don’t offer services in a commercial setting. More and more businesses are creating virtual options. 

What about piano lessons? Can you learn piano from piano apps you’ll find online? Do you need one on one instruction from a teacher sitting next to you? Is virtual really an option? 

Glad you asked. Here’s our take on learning piano. 

Piano apps provide convenience

Let’s start with the biggest reason why people love online learning – convenience. And when you invest in piano software, convenience is the number one benefit. 

No more driving to a thirty minute lesson, dropping your child off, and having to waste a little time while they play. Piano apps allow you to sit down at your convenience, get your daily practice in, and jump right into your next routine. 

With most piano apps, you’ll find they can be adaptable based on your needs. You can change the way you learn, have options that suit your tastes and needs, and be able to practice in a timeframe that suits your needs. Want to practice at 6 am? Or maybe sit down while everyone else is asleep? That’s no longer a problem – an app allows you to do it all on your time – anytime. 

Piano apps provide options

This is something worth mentioning again. Everyone learns differently, at their own pace, and in their own way. 

Using a piano teacher provides a more structured environment. 

We’re not saying working with a piano teacher is bad – it’s actually quite beneficial for you to work through problems with the way you play that technology will never pick up on. But we do feel there are many options available to help you learn in a way that suits you best. 

Working with technology can give you the ability to:

  • Select from hundreds of songs
  • Track your progress
  • Practice anytime you desire
  • Keep costs low – piano apps are often available with a one-time fee

Piano apps are only beginning to grow in popularity. With technology advancing at the speed it is, it’s a matter of time before we find even more benefits to using it to help you perfect your piano playing, and find ways to fit it into your life even more.
