If you have ever been enthusiastic about learning to play the piano but you have never had the chance to take piano lessons or courses, Everyone Piano might be the right solution for you. This innovative tool turns your PC's keyboard into a full-featured piano that you can use for both entertaining and learning purposes. Besides, the program includes a number of sample compositions that make the processes of learning to play the piano even easier.
The program's main interface is divided into three sections. The first one shows a PC's keyboard layout, while the second one simulates a real piano keyboard, complete with half-tones. The third section shows a twin stave with the corresponding two clefs. You can set the working key, the OCT shift, and dynamics values, and turn the sustain on or off for both the left and the right hands separately. This section also includes a modest audio player that you can use to play back any existing composition ─ or to record and save your own ones. You can also change the playing speed and make it slower or faster. This is a very useful feature, especially if you are learning to play the piano. Moreover, the application allows you to hide or show individually any of the features mentioned.
But there are many more interesting functions in Everyone Piano. To mention but some, it lets you load VSTi sound databases, create your compositions using external keyboards (e.g., electronic organs), and change the program's layout by choosing any of the ten skins provided. Besides, the software's interface enables you to download and install several plug-ins, and it is capable of simulating the piano's footplate, too.
In conclusion, EveryonePiano is a feature-rich piano learning tool which will be equally useful to apprentices as well as experimented piano players. Best of all, both type of users can either learn or sharpen their piano skills for absolutely free.
