Magic Piano

Magic Piano is a great little iPad (or iPhone) app.  Using finger touches, you play not only a melody but also HARMONY!  Even for me, an accomplished pianist, this can be quite the challenge as the difficulty progresses!  The app comes with a set of free songs to begin your musical experience.  As you complete songs, you earn "smoola" which can then be exchanged for a new, more difficult song.    There is also the option to buy more songs, but really, it's not that hard to earn smoola!  I really enjoy playing this app, and would recommend it for non-pianists as well as beginner or advanced musicians.  Here's a video of Mystery Guitar Man playing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata for his "audience."  Enjoy!
