Welcome to a new era of online piano lessons

Teaching yourself how to play the piano used to be boring and super hard. You would need to muddle through lengthy online video lessons, trying to pause and rewind to be able to follow along. Learning with books and sheet music was even harder, requiring months of practice before you could play even the most basic songs.

Thanks to recent advancements in audio and video technology, these times are over. flowkey provides you with piano lessons online that can check if you play along correctly. This way you'll learn to play your favourite songs faster than ever. From reading music to mastering chords and playing all the great hits – flowkey will help you become the pianist you always wanted to be in no time.

What people are saying about our online piano lessons

"I've been using flowkey for almost a month now (as someone who has never played piano in my life), and I've learned so much! I already know several songs, and I've completed quite a few of the course lessons! I'd highly recommend using flowkey if you are just starting to play piano.”

Red Armadillo – App Store review

"I have been trying to find a good app to start playing my keyboard again. Really... I spend like 10 months trying different apps. I used to play the piano when i was 13... Now i am 34 and my life is different. Flowkey is just great...A few minutes and i was able to play "Demons" ... FULLY RECOMMENDED!"

Josedlz – App Store review

"I really love this... I bought a new 88 key piano around December... Started to try playing and then I lost steam for a few months. Then I found flowkey... And definitely found my tool that works for me. I especially love that I can see the hand positions clearly of the teacher.”
