The Berlin-based company behind the freemium piano-learning platform, has launched on iPad.
Previously only available via web browser, Skoove is bringing the most effective and complete way of learning the piano, to iPad, combining professional and conventional musical training to beginners, through to advanced players. Skoove teaches the player all elements of piano learning, including technique, improvisation and music theory, all available via the app.
Having already provided over 200,000 lessons to players in over 187 countries, the new interactive app allows players to learn and play the piano in the comfort of their own home. Without having to attend lessons and cutting the costs of expensive one-on-one tuition provided by private tutors, Skoove is making the steps to achieving proficiency in piano-playing even easier.
Pitch detection and instant feedback
- Skoove’s virtual guide takes the learner through every lesson, while providing real-time feedback, which listens to the player via the iPad’s in-built microphone. The note that is played is highlighted on-screen as Skoove gently guides users to play the melody correctly and confidently, until they are ready to move onto the next step. If an incorrect note is played, Skoove will show users where they are making mistakes, and encourage them until they are ready to move onto the next step, adapting to the needs of each player.
- Easy-to-follow, real-time sheet music is clear and simple to understand, meaning that beginners can pick up and read sheet music from lesson one. Skoove regularly adds more courses that contain a distinctive mix of popular songs, as well as the classical pieces, and music theory tips and techniques.
Composition and improvisation
- Skoove also provides the students with the opportunity to develop their love of music further, teaching a vast array of skills essential to any musician, such as composition and improvisation, enabling users to create their own masterpieces as they learn.
