Technology and Your Studio

The article includes five reviews of popular Apps that piano teachers are currently using in their studios. You probably know them and are already using but hopefully one here might be new to you!

As recitals, concerts and exams start winding up for the year it can be a great time to introduce a different element to lessons with an app that reinforces note reading skills, musicianship or creativity. If you are using another App that you love and would like to review for us at The Piano Teacher, shoot us an email at

1. Note Rush

This Australian made app is a music note reading games that listens to you play. You can limit or expand the note selection as appropriate for the student playing. It is like a deck of flashcards that gives feedback to the student if they play the note correctly on their instrument. A great one for students to be able to play at home too.
