Learn to Play Piano with the Help of Deep Learning Technology in GameOn Piano


Launching today on the App Store


TEL AVIV, Israel – May 3, 2017 – Shalev Games’ GameOn Piano is now available as a free-to-play game for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. The first of its kind, GameOn Piano introduces an algorithm powered by a deep learning neural net that is able to extract chords from any song!

Learn the chords to your favorite songs by importing your iTunes library music – or choose from any of the game’s built-in tracks. GameOn Piano can listen to you perform on a real-life piano or keyboard. The game provides an easy way to learn by offering onscreen prompts that are simple to follow. Hit the right keys in time with the music to earn points – and string together several notes to earn a boost. Level up and earn more tracks as you play; each completed song will reward you with coins and experience that can be used to unlock additional music and instruments.

With more than 20 million songs available on the iTunes catalog alone, GameOn Piano is the first game that gives you the power to choose what you want to learn from your own music library – allowing you to master the chords to your favorite songs while playing along on a real keyboard or virtual piano. Don’t have your own music? Not a problem! GameOn Piano features its own library of tracks from talented indie artists – including music from SPiN, The Young Werewolves, Oh No Not Stereo, and many more.

GameOn Piano’s deep learning neural net handles live piano chord recognition through your device’s microphone. With this, the game can hear what is being played in real time to help you play correctly. This allows you to learn at your own pace, chord by chord – giving you real-life experience that can be used beyond the game.

“In creating GameOn Piano, our goal was to make it easy for music fans to learn the chords to their favorite songs regardless of skill or piano experience,” says Yael Shalev, founder of Shalev Games. “We’re now able to give players the opportunity to learn the piano at their own pace … and with true freedom thanks to the massive iTunes catalog. The algorithm can even listen for a real piano or keyboard to measure proficiency! In the end, a love for music is all it takes to enjoy GameOn Piano.”
