Piano Maestro is a new, free app from Joytunes. It allows teachers, students and families to join together to learn the piano. Participants create accounts alone or in sync with their teacher. The application can be used in the classroom, as well as assign homework to be done later through the application. Participants will learn to read melodic notes, rhythms, counting, technique, scales, and repertoire through partner and group collaboration. This app can also be linked to an accoustic or electric piano, allowing for problem solving and critical thinking as real keys, hand positions and fingerings are introduced. This can be done alone, but I utilize it in partners and groups in my classroom to allow for students to question and assist each other through the learning process.
