MusTech.Net Quick Text Review:
A great app. for showing the piano, playing melodies, and demonstrating harmonic concepts. There is a slight bit of delay (latency) when using this application (especially when multiple keys are pressed). The sound is great and I highly recommend this for music educators to have on their iPads for classroom demonstration purposes.

Recommended for your iPad music tool arsenal? Yes.
Caveats: If this becomes AD enabled, like the iPhone version it will become a “tough sale”. If they do put ads on this app., I hope they do it more tastefully than the iPhone version…
