Learn and practice piano and become pianist - Flowkey

Hello everyone, welcome to the blog 


Today I'm going to do a review post and going to review an amazing app you can learn piano from. However, if you've missed the previous post you can check here but changed the way how i review apps and decided to skipped the steps or things not interesting or simple and easy.


I'm going to talk a little bit about the app before i review it but i would like to talk about how i organize the three topics on the blog before i talk about the app. If you have noticed from the three previous posts, i post the Five-list first and then next is the storytime which the fictional stories and then i do the app reviews posts next which the last one and this is how i organize them.

Alright, so the app called Flowkey and it's educational music app which teaches you how to be a good musician. The app focuses on a piano which an instrumental music type, and everyone by now familiar with the piano in matter fact most of us have a piano.

Learn and practice piano and become pianist - Flowkey


The app has courses which the way you can learn the piano and it has different courses we will take a look on that. However, you can learn by following up with a piano song that has been posted in the app. The app endorsed by some of the most famous youtube pianists as well as teachers and musicians worldwide. 


The app also has a premium membership which allows you to gain access to all the songs and unrestricted course content. Alright, this is everything you want to know and the rest we will take a loot on through the review and learn more. However, we will jump right into the app and of course, I've skipped some steps you will take but it's easy steps and unnecessary to write about.


Songs page in the app scrolled down Songs page in the app

























Anyway, you have to create an account to use some of the features in this app such as using the premium membership. You will be asked some easy questions to set the app as well.

The pictures above demonstrate the songs page which you will find songs you can listen and learn from.You can favorite songs as well and it will be added to your account which we will see in few seconds.


Choosing your level is important as it allows the app to give you the right songs and courses. However, in the right picture, i have scrolled down a little bit to show you more of the songs you can find. You can scroll more and find more labels, and as you can see in the right picture there are categories for songs as well.




Search page in the app
Search page in the app with items


The next page i will review is the search page which obviously it's where you can search for a specific song. However, you can also search for a specific artist, category, or youtube partner.  

I wanted to show you how it looks when you type something so i typed the letter "G" in the search box as you can see in the right picture and a bunch of songs showed up. The lock icon that shows on the right side of the song indicates that you can't open them as you have to get a premium membership to gain access to all the songs. 

My songs page

 Tuen next one is gonna contain your favorited songs and also what you have learned recently. Because i haven't used the app that long and also haven't favorited any song or learned a course. However, when you tap on the "Discover Now" button you will be directed to the songs page which the first page.

Courses page
Courses page swiped

Alright, so this is the last page which the courses page and its where you gonna find different courses you can take. You don't have to scroll down to find more courses instead you will just swipe to the right and you will find more course as shown in the right picture. 

I swiped once just to show you some of the courses but you can find more than this as you swipe to the right. However, i will show you will expect when you tap on the courses above and if you can notice it. The left pictures below showing what you will expect when you tap on the courses in the left picture above and so for the right one.

I also wanted to show you what you will expect when you tap on a course and i have tapped on the "First steps" in the left picture below and what you gonna see is shown in the picture below it and so for the right picture below. I hope you don't get confused.

Introductions to the piano courses
Reading sheet music courses
First step course
Reading sheet course details
The app also supports for both right and left hand and this is an amazing feature of the app. You can still learn from the app whether you are right or left hand. You can scroll down to see more details about each course.

Alright, this is a wrap for this review i will stop and let you explore more of the app if you liked it. You search "Flowkey" on apple store and you will find it. Don't forget to comment below your thoughts on this app and subscribe to read more awesome app reviews. I will see you guys in the next post but till then stay safe and keep smiling.

    1. I haven't but it doesn't have to be similar, as long as you will be able to do it and understand the courses, that's it :).

  21. FlowKey seems like a really useful app. I taught myself to play a bit of piano as a kid. I felt really pleased once I got up to using two hands. I would have loved an app like this.

  33. It's great that this app teaches and encourages one to learn how to play the piano. Back in the old days, we used to hire a piano teacher to physically come to our home and guide us read the notes.

  34. The timing of your post is perfect. My daughter is wanting to learn piano and lessons can get very expensive. This would be a great addition

  35. My kids might enjoy this. I took piano lessons for 2 years before quitting. I didn't like being reminded to practice all day every day. Sadly, I've forgotten most of what I had learned. Love that technology is helping make it more fun and easier.

  36. I was recently talking to my sister about wanting to play the piano so this post came at the right time. I will certainly check this out.

  37. I'm a huge proponent of music. Especially piano for my kids. Learning to read/play music actually increases one's IQ, so I've read in TIME or research papers! Not surprising, as it really activates a part of your brain that may go unused otherwise. My boys all love the piano and appreciate that they can read music; it helps them in all sorts of other instruments as well. For me, it's a lifelong gift.

  38. What a great review! I'm a self-taught piano player but I wish 10 years ago there was an app like this!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh wow! I am a frustrated pianist. I hope this could really help me.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Technology can do wonders. Not can learn everything online without any hassles. Thanks for sharing this. Didn't know about it.

  41. I self-studied playing the keyboard before but it was a bit hard because I had to refer to books all the time. It's amazing how nowadays we can easily learn to play instruments like a piano for instance, by using an app! I left my keyboard in Manila but I'll take note of this app when I'm ready to learn again.

  42. A music lover so learning to play piano is one of my wish. Maybe I should try this app soon. Good luck to me haha.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That's a cool app. Is it for android or windows or iphone? I've been such a fan of fusion music created using such apps.
