PianoBookPlayer musical score display app released for iOS and Android

PiaBookPlayer app for iOS and Android

Kawai Japan is pleased to announce the release of PiaBookPlayer, a musical score display app for Kawai digital pianos, available for compatible iOS and Android devices*.

The PiaBookPlayer app allows Kawai digital piano owners to view the notated scores of the many lesson songs and practise pieces built into their digital piano, and listen to these pieces playing back through the instrument’s Shigeru Kawai grand piano sounds.

PiaBookPlayer takes advantage of the wireless Bluetooth MIDI feature built into many Kawai digital pianos, allowing players to enjoy listening to classical pieces and viewing their musical scores from the comfort of an armchair.  The app also allows pages of the notated score to be advanced using the instrument’s soft or sostenuto pedals, for hands-free page turning.
