Although it seems just like a simple game, it is actually good fun on the go, challenging and with a very nice learning curve.”- said Nacho Garcia, designer of“ Music on: Learning Piano”.

What critics have said:

(...) for its third release, Learning Piano, the studio's gone a totally different and even more impressive direction. This little two-dollar download may be one of the most surprising, most fun and most "why hasn't someone done this before" music game designs I've ever played. I'm a fan.(...)Lucas M. Thomas, IGN

Music On: Learning Piano isn’t flashy, but it achieves what it sets out to do. You can apply the keys and patterns that you learn to a real piano (...)Bryan Griffin, Nintendo Life
