Learn to play piano using your favorite popular songs.
Playground Sessions is a revolutionary software platform that teaches you how to play the piano using popular songs you know and love. Perfect for all levels, Playground has hours of interactive video tutorials starring music phenomenon David Sides teaching songs and music theory. You’ll learn to read notation through “Apologize,” find your way around the keyboard with “Hey Soul Sister,” and master rhythm with “Because of You,” all with instant on-screen feedback, bringing the best part of private lessons to your own home.
Learn Anywhere at Your Convenience
Walk through our interactive video song tutorials step by step with your teacher, award-winning musician David Sides. As the song progresses, the on-screen keyboard will highlight the notes you should play in real-time, simultaneously mirroring what David is playing on the piano. It’s an innovative, easier way to learn. Learn on your own time with the convenience of a teacher available 24 hours a day. Plus, no song can be too intimidating with David’s supportive feedback and tips guiding you through.
Visual Feedback = Instant Gratification
Practice with instant visual feedback so you know right away which keys you’ve played correctly and incorrectly. This helps you see where things are going well and where things need work. At the end of each section, you will receive an accuracy report and a score, motivating you to practice more.
Playground translates your progress into easy-to-read graphs and charts so you can see where you're improving over time and where more practice is needed. Earn badges for your accomplishments, try to beat your high score, then proudly display and share them with friends.
Fall Back in Love With Your Music Store
Playground lets you pick songs that inspire you the most. When you love the tune and know the rhythm, it's easier to learn. So before you know it, you're already playing. Choose from top hits such as "Halo", "Imagine", and "Moonlight Sonata". Song lessons are arranged by level of difficulty: Rookie, Intermediate and Advanced, so no matter your level of experience, we’ve got the perfect song for you.
