ION introduces its portable keyboard with lighted keys & piano learning software for ipad, iphone & ipod touch. PIANO APPRENTICE turns a portable keyboard into a traveling music teacher with an intelligent piano learning software app.
Originally announced at Summer NAMM, PIANO APPRENTICE, a portable 25-key piano transforms iPad, iPhone or iPod into a personal piano instructor.
The PIANO APPRENTICE App – a free download from the App Store – is piano learning software designed and built by ION to work seamlessly with PIANO APPRENTICE and creates a comprehensive music-learning experience. Piano players follow along as Emmy award-winning piano instructor, Scott Houston (aka “The Piano Guy”), appears on the screen demonstrating how to play while the PIANO APPRENTICE keys light up in time with the music. In addition, Scott’s hands are right above the PIANO APPRENTICE keyboard, showing the user where to place their hands, teaching them how to play.
Other modes will teach aspiring pianists how to read sheet music or allow them to simply play the piano at any octave they choose. The portable keyboard itself is touch sensitive, responding to soft or hard playing accordingly for expressive music creation. PIANO APPRENTICE is lightweight, battery powered, and has built-in speakers for learning and playing anywhere.
“PIANO APPRENTICE enables people everywhere to bring out their inner musician using their iPad, iPhone or iPod, even if they’ve never played an instrument before,” said Wendy Mittelstadt, Product Manager, ION. “This is a incredibly easy-to-use and portable system for learning and music creation.”
