    Default Does anyone know of a program/app that makes playing a piece of music much easier?

    Hi I am a 56 year old medical doctor -if you at 37 years are 'old' I hate to think what I am.
    I have written an app for iphone/ipad just for someone asking your question!
    The app allows you to play classical piano pieces (limited to this because of copyright with more modern music).
    It provides a way for you to choose the level of control you want to have as you play.
    The idea is incredibly simple- the device/program looks after playing the right notes in the right order. You have control about when the notes start/stop and exactly how loud/soft they are.These are the elements that give expression to any piece of music. You play the piece of music from the touch screen and do not need to read music. The app gives a representation of the timing for playing the notes which is simple and intuitive.
    I plan to release the app on the Apple app store soon but am looking to try and find how much interest there might be for the app.
    All the best

    Hi I hope I am not posting in the wrong place. -moderator please move my thread and accept my apologies if I am.
    I am 56 years old and I guess like a lot of people wish I had stuck with playing the piano. I wonder about starting but it occurred to me to look to see if there are any programs/apps that could perhaps help.

    The only two programs/apps that I know of are Wii Music and Magic Piano for iphone. But both of these are really limited in how much you can really express yourself playing the music. It seems crazy to me that with the huge amount of software that is available nothing really helps you to make music both more easily but still in a satisfying way. Or is there stuff out there that I am missing?
    Would other people be interested in a program like this?

    One App that really helps a musician really "Learn" to play a tune from a recording is Anytune Pro.
    It will slow a piece down without changing its pitch. It will loop any section so that the ear can hear what is played.
    In the old days we used to have to pick up the needle on the record player, or back up the turntable to have these passages repeated and then learned. It is a good tool and not expensive.
