Mobile developer Gismart has launched Hello Piano on iOS. Hello Piano is a music-focused educational app that teaches users how to play piano through games, trivia, and puzzles. It’s available now for iPhone and iPad.
“Hello Piano is the start of music education products for Gismart,” said Dmitri Lipnitsky, CEO, Gismart. “We are aiming to fight boredom, a chief enemy of educational success, and offering gamified learning experience, featuring a balanced mix of theoretical knowledge and practice. We’ve had a great success with our music entertainment apps such as Beat Maker Go that has amassed over 25 million downloads to date and is a leading beat making app on the App Store, and now keen to expand our product portfolio with music educational products.”
Hello Piano focuses on four teachable areas: ear training, reading music, rhythm training, and playing techniques. The app is designed as a serious, daily exercise, with lessons that can be absorbed in 15 minutes a day. It features a Daily Practice mode to ramp up skills, and tracks progress in the My Stats section. It gamifies much of the teaching, including adding achievements and difficulty settings.
Hello Piano works as a subscription service. The app is free to download and includes a 3-day free trial. Subscriptions cost $7.99 per week or $19.99 per month.
Gismart is a UK-based mobile developer that specializes in music-focused game apps. Hello Piano is their first foray into edutainment and educational software.
