Here's an app-powered keyboard that's great for kids
Hey, guys I'm here with the One Smart Piano, this is a keyboard that leverages the power of your phone or tablet, both iOS and Android devices plugs right in over here and then you pull up the One Smart Piano app.
And then you can go check out video lessons or you can play games.
You can do all sorts of cool things with this that you couldn't do with the normal keyboard.
One of the really cool things about this keyboard are the LEDs that are built in to each of the keys.
And what they means is, I can bring up a piece of music here on the iPad and then play along on the piano with the keys lighting up and telling me what notes to play.
So here I've got a piece of music by Johann Bach and if I start it right here at this low C go to this G this D. You can see the lights are lighting up as I play.
And I can learn how to play the song a little easier.
It's kind of a nice guide.
You can also by left hand part or right hand part or both hands at once.
Nice and customizable.
I think it's good way to help you learn a song.
Those LED keys also come into play with these video lessons.
So if I tap here you can see I get these 105 tutorial lessons.
Lessons, basically ten minutes piano lessons I can follow along with.
So, here you see I'm following along with the piano rip from the Tunisia's thank you notes.
And I guess you're gonna have to play this as the key lights up.
It's kinda hard here doing it all at once, so slow down and show me each note, each part It's a pretty handy little tool.
I like it a lot.
The app also has sorta a Guitar Hero mode to the keyboard where you can load a song and play along and try to get a high score.
There aren't a whole lot of songs to pick from but its kinda cool.
There, not bad.
The One Smart keyboard retails for $300.
There's also a full-size version that has the full 88 keys for $1,500.
That's a lot to spend, but honestly, this keyboard's pretty cool.
I like it and if I was a kid and I was learning to play the piano, I think I would enjoy using the To follow along with a lesson or learn a new song to impress my family and friends.
So if you have a kid that likes the piano or you wanna learn yourself, maybe give it a thought.
There, we've got enough we're good.
