It’s for complete beginners, people taking up an instrument again, and anyone who wants to experience a new way of playing. Expand your enjoyment of music by watching, listening, and playing through the app.

Piano Roll

The piano roll makes it easy to see which notes to play even if you don’t read music. It’s a great way to have fun learning while playing.

Practice at Your Own Pace

If the tempo is too fast, slow it down and practice the difficult parts as many times as you need to until you’ve mastered them.

See Your Progress with Scores and Recording

See how well you played with a score automatically calculated by the app, and listen back to your performance with the recording feature.

A Varied Library of Songs to Choose from

 

The app contains piano songs and keyboard songs for you to practice and play – and you can also use your own MIDI files. Many of the piano songs can also be played on a 61-key keyboard. The difficulty level and your score for each song is displayed in the app’s song list.

Score Viewer

“Musical Score + Sound” lets you see and listen to a wide range of music on your smart device.

Supports Pedal Operation to Flip through Music

You can use the damper pedal or three pedal unit to flip through the score via USB cable or wireless connection - convenient for playing while sight-reading the score.

» Casio keyboards do not support this function. Click here to find out which piano's, Casio pedals can be used to turn pages on. 

*If your piano model does not support page turning, you can alternatively use a commercially available Bluetooth® pedal with your smart device.
