Piano is Fun – I am Giving this Software 5 Gold Stars!
Man, was I wrong!
I installed Piano is Fun! to my laptop within minutes of receiving it, without having to consult with my teenage son for assistance.
It came with bonus printable worksheets (word finds, mazes, connect the dots, and crossword puzzles) unexpectedly.
This software is not a lot of money and delivers great value. Here are some highlights:

My Personal Favorite: Customizable Lessons
These customizable lessons are like finding a pot of gold in my world of piano teaching. You can easily put a check mark within the notes you would like to include in your student’s practice! LOVE IT!!
Honestly, this software was designed for children, but it is so educationally sound and pleasing to use, I would recommend it students of all ages wanting to learn to read and recognize notes on the staff. To learn more in greater detail, visit the official site.
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about Piano is Fun taken directly from their website:
|Can I use Piano Is Fun with a MIDI keyboard?|
No – Piano is fun does not use a MIDI keyboard. The program is completely self contained and uses an onscreen keyboard as shown in the video. All you need is your computer.
After going through all 20 lessons and learning to read music, most students find it very easy to transfer their new knowledge to a real piano or keyboard.
|Is Piano Is Fun suitable for Adult Beginners?|
I designed Piano Is Fun for my nephew so it was designed for children. However, what has surprised me is that many adult beginners have used the program to improve their sight reading. If you’re young at heart and are open to playing a fun game that will help you learn to read music then Piano Is Fun can definitely help.
|Is Piano Is Fun Mac Compatible?|
Unfortunately no. Piano Is Fun can currently only be used on computers running Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7. I am hoping to create a Mac version in the future.
