No Dust on Your Piano Anymore...

Piano Dust Buster

One of these days I came across an article that described a new free application by JoyTunes for iPad: Piano Dust Buster. The product is created to help those who dreamed of playing piano to begin learning. The program is interactive and responds to real piano getting data through the iPad microphone. It allows to play at your own pace and not give up studies because they are hard or monotonous. It seems to be really good for beginners and children to raise interest in music studies and piano lessons, but nothing more.

As for me, I see it as another game, which is good for joy and nothing else. As only a teacher can tell how to put your arms correctly when you play the piano, how to sit, what mistakes you do. These basics are very important. May be the best variant is – a mix: a teacher to learn and the game to arise interest.

What do you think about this app?

When I was a kid, I used to have a toy piano. The thing is that I'd never learnt to play it. My mum was fed up with my performances and gave this piano to her friend's daughter… who,by the way, was not a proffesional as well. Poor piano…

I have a piano now, well a synthesizer in fact. Last year I even began to visit lessons. I did visit them for a year, but had to give up because of lack of time. And I doubt that any program can help me find some spare time. I understand your fillings towards that piano — a sad story. I hope that mine won't accumulate dust for long.

It's just another toy, not more. It is unlikely it will teach your child the correct position of the fingers or how to extract sounds from the keyboard.
However, such toys might cause an interest in music and encourage your kids to learn to play an instrument later.
