About Visual Piano

Visual Piano is a practical software package that makes learning to play your favorite tunes easy, whether you're just getting started or striving to take your playing to the next level. Most instructional piano courses require you to read music. But Visual Piano is unique because the ability to read music is not a requirement and the format is simple.


Here's how it works!


Once Visual Piano is installed, simply load a midi file of your favorite tune, watch the keyboard display as it plays, listen, and follow along.  All you have to do is emulate what you see and hear being played on automated keyboard display. If it's too fast, slow it down. If you want to see it played in a different key, transpose it. If you only want to see and/or hear what a particular part is doing, no problem. You have complete control!
