Instruments on your Smartphone

“Gibson Learn & Master Guitar” by Legacy Learning Systems (https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Legacy+Learning+Systems)

While there are many guitar-playing apps on the market, Gibson’s app is great for both new and veteran guitar players. Gibson Learn & Master Guitar is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with some Samsung Galaxy device models. They are currently working on a solution for this, however, and will hopefully release it soon.

“Piano Complete” or by Better Day Wireless (https://itunes.apple.com/ph/app/piano-complete-500+-songs/id408886988?mt=8)

Piano Complete and Piano Free are apps for the iPhone and iPad. The complete version includes over 500 songs you can play along with and comes with additional features not found in the Free version. It is recommended for more advanced pianists. In the Free version, you can buy All-Access Pass subscriptions for full access to their song library or enjoy the free songs the app comes with. It is recommended for new piano players or children.

“Virtual Piano” by NullApp (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nullapp.pian o‎)

Unfortunately, Better Day Wireless does not develop apps for Android devices. NullApp comes to the rescue with Virtual Piano, giving you options to use a single or double-keyboard layout with a full piano keyboard featuring a 6 octave range. Virtual Piano works for most Android devices, but is best on larger screens.

“Drum Kit” by CrimsonJet (https://itunes.apple.com/ph/app/drum-kit/id306474530?mt=8)

There are a lot of drum kit apps out there, but this is one of the best. The base kit includes 6 pieces but other kits are available via in-app purchases. It is updated frequently and the developer is very responsive to user feedback. You can even record your play sessions and edit them to share with friends!

“Pocket Shaker” by HappyAppy (https://itunes.apple.com/ph/app/pocket-shaker/id313139592?mt=8)

Pocket Shaker is an app for playing percussion instruments. This app is the easiest of the musical instruments to play, but still super fun. Play just like you would expect: shake your device! You can choose from many different percussion instruments including the tambourine, castanet, or the tabala. Of course, you can stick with the basic shaker just to get started. All the different instruments come free – no need for in-app purchases to unlock your favorite percussion instrument.

“iBone – the Pocket Trombone” by Spoonjack (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.spoonjack.ibone)

Touch the screen or blow into the microphone to make a sound, sliding your finger to change the pitch. If you have never played the trombone before or aren’t confident about your skills, the “roboBone” feature guides you along as you play with one of the free songs that come with the app. You can also purchase additional songs to expand your music library. iBone is available on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
