Converter and Song Library
Gentle Piano has a fairly comprehensive library of piano pieces, which is constantly updated with the help of a specially created converter.
Our selected piano pieces help beginners to more easily master the fine motor skills, hand-eye and both hands coordination and fingers' management.
Students of any age or level will find our tool useful for mastering pieces for sight-reading and performing purposes.
Seeing mistakes to correct them.
Our music learning software helps student not only to read piano sheet music but to monitor their errors as they play.
They will also be helped to fix their mistakes.
The student can learn a piece with separate or both hands.
The student can also choose simpler or advanced versions of sheet music.
Improving your music memory and ear.
Gentle Piano™ helps ear training. You don’t have to be musically inclined to succeed with us. Visual interaction with music notation helps the mind have enough ‘room’ to listen to what you are playing while being in control of producing sounds. Such “hands on” experience in making music leads to developing your musical ear.
Gentle Piano™ helps memorizing. Additionally, memorization of piano pieces also won’t be a problem any longer! We've created unique ways to help you to memorize pieces. Keep in mind that with Gentle Piano™ your memory will be always secured by not only sound but also visual support.
Gentle Piano™ will interact with you directly. Interactivity in learning is crucial. This is why many students prefer to learn with a teacher. However, some tasks we prefer to master in private - especially those students intimidated by the presence of others. We think that playing notes on the piano could be something a student can manage without the help of a teacher.
Gentle Piano™ - is a game-like sheet music with animated hints. We have developed unique visual animated hints that will give you a clue what you do right or wrong and how to fix your own mistakes. These hints are so intuitive and bold that even toddlers get them pretty quickly.
The computer “comments” on everything done at the piano - when you have to keep pressing one key and to release another, when you pressed the wrong key and how far are you from the right one, how long to hold the key down according to duration of the note and many others items.
We came to such animation after learning that visual hints are more perceptive then aural signals. Trying to manage using 10 fingers while dealing with notation, piano keys and sounds, as well as vocal commands of an instructor often is too much. You simply don’t have ‘enough room’ in your mind to process all these items. Our system of visual and animated hints helps lift work and tension from the process.
Sheet music used to be 'one size fits all'. Even after enlarging very simple music pieces any beginner has to read multiple lines and spaces at once. Now you can adjust music text to your vision and start reading music from one line first.
There are 6 formats that you are able to choose from. The 6th - traditional notation - is the last tool to the paper sheet music transition.
RULE OF THUMB: if the piano piece is challenging for muscles, more visual hints are necessary,
Performance. With beginners use the 1-st and 3-rd visual modes (with labels on the notes) for fine motor skills, coordination and piano technique support.
Sight-reading. Use 2-nd, 4-th, 5-th and 6-th for eye-sight training to sight-read music score. Choose less advanced scores and play more pieces to develop your sight-reading properly.
