Teaches you the piano notes by starting the song and asking you to hit the correct keys for the sounds, it will only proceed to the next part of the song when you have pressed the correct key for the correct note. There is also a progression tracker that keeps your performance up to date.
Synthesia offers a both entertaining and effective way of learning to play the piano. It is in fact one of the most interesting piano learning solutions that I’ve ever come across, as it incorporates some truly remarkable features and cool functions. For example, it comes with a handy melody practice mode in which it waits for you to play the correct note before moving on to the next one. This allows you to practice at your own speed, the application being capable of adapting the lesson to your skill level, and being therefore suitable for both complete beginners and more advanced users.
Synthesia is also interesting as it makes practicing resemble a game. Falling notes have to be matched and played accordingly for every played song. Many songs are included, but most of them are not offered for free and have to be purchased separately. You can also enable musical notation (the music sheets) for the played songs and practice your hands separately. Of course, as in any game, progress tracking is an important matter and Synthesia offers an accurate feedback and long term tracking that help you precisely check your improvements. Anyway, these are just a few of the many things Synthesia has to offer. It’s a really comprehensive and feature-rich tool that comes packed with a lot of cool functions.
To sum it all up, Synthesia is a handy tool that makes learning to play piano an interesting and entertaining experience as well as an effective task.
