Enjoy studying and listening to notated scores

The PiaBookPlayer app allows Kawai digital piano owners to view the notated scores of the many classical lesson pieces and practise drills built into their instrument, while also listening to these pieces play back through the instrument’s Shigeru Kawai grand piano sounds.  The app features a clean user interface, allowing pieces to be easily selected and displayed on a tablet or smartphone.

Find lesson pieces easily

The PiaBookPlayer app categorises music by composer or book, allowing the desired lesson piece or practise drill to be found easily.  Once selected, the piece can be listened to using the familiar music player app interface.

 

It is also possible to add frequently played or listened to pieces to a Favorites category for immediate access.

Large selection of lesson pieces

Many Kawai digital pianos include a large selection of classical lesson pieces from composers such as Bach, Chopin, Czerny, and Beethoven built-into the instrument.

 

The PiaBookPlayer app provides an effortless way to listen to this useful material, with a total of 377 pieces accessible for all compatible Kawai models – even instruments that do not originally include the Lesson function.

 

* Notated scores for Alfred lesson songs are not included.

Hands-free page turning using pedals

Turning the pages of notated scores while playing can be a little challenging with traditional printed scores.  However, the PiaBookPlayer app allows hands-free page turning by using the piano's pedals.

 

Once enabled, simply press the Sostenuto pedal once to advance the page, or twice to return to the previous page.  It also possible to assign the Soft pedal to the previous page function.

 

* Requires an instrument with triple pedal configuration.
