The app is also great for more experienced players. It's a nice platform for quickly sight-reading a new piece, and nearly any song can be found in the MIDI format that Synthesia understands. The program is also a nice companion tool for daily practice to complement piano lessons. The scoring and progression systems help keep track of personal growth on each piece.
It shows any MIDI song as falling notes or sheet music so you can follow along easily. If you connect a musical keyboard (using USB or MIDI), Synthesia for macOS listens to your playing and helps you learn any song. It continues to evolve into the best practice tool for beginners and experienced players alike. Does Piano Learning App Actually Work? Yes, of course.
