Apps to learn how to play musical instruments

As we get older, we often think back on our lives and wish we had or hadn’t done certain things. I would have liked to have taken up dance lessons as a child or joined my local athletics club, but that’s just my personal preference.

For many others, they may wish that they’d learned a foreign language, spent more time on creative pursuits or learned how to play a musical instrument.

Even if you’re reading this at the age of 70, 80 or 90, I’d still say that it’s never too late to do anything, if you really want to. And what makes many of these things even easier today is the use and help from computers and the Internet.

Quite a few of you may already be learning a foreign language with the aid of a mobile phone application or app you can download onto your computer, and that’s not that unusual nowadays. However, how many of you have considered learning to play a musical instrument without going to music lessons and only by tapping away at your computer’s keyboard?

Well, now you can with the following apps that are all available from the Windows Store, and therefore downloadable onto your laptop. So, if you want to learn how to play a romantic ballad in order to serenade a potential partner, or if you want to write your own song to play for someone special, now’s the chance to do so in the comfort of your own home.

Electric Piano 10

If your thing is the piano, then don’t miss out on this app. The piano is very realistic, although the keys are somewhat sensitive. All you have to do is select the octave with the arrows and then tinker away. You can learn your favourite songs or make up your own. This app has an average rating of 3.5 stars, so not the best out there, but not bad for a start.


Piano Guitar

A great app for beginners, just learning how to play the piano and the guitar. The virtual piano has very realistic sounds and the app includes a hover mode that allows you to play several keys at once. With regards to the guitar, there’s an acoustic sound, and the app is perfect for absolute beginners who want to familiarize themselves with the tones and chords of the instrument.


Harpsichord 10

This is very similar to the Electric Piano 10 app as it was also designed for Windows 10. You will need your own music though.


Rock Guitar 10

An easy-to-use app that allows you to strum strings just like on a real guitar. This is a great app for those aspiring to learn how to play the guitar. Learn the basic chords and create your own songs.
