If you’ve got a keyboard or piano gathering dust somewhere, there’s never been a better year to teach yourself how to play. And there’s never been a piano teacher quite like Pianu Pro, an innovative system that turns the process of learning music into a game.
You can determine your own pace with Pianu, which has the usual slate of finger-strengthening exercises and basic skill drills in Pianu Academy. But it also gives you the ability to dive right in and test those skills with popular songs and visual guides that play right in your browser. Just hook up your MIDI or other compatible keyboard and play along to hits from the likes of Queen and Taylor Swift. You’ll be able to see each note “drop” down onto the correct position on the keys as you follow along, increasing your ability with each playthrough – and earning you badges along the way.
Right now, a lifetime subscription to Pianu Pro is more than 40% off the MSRP for Macworld readers.
