There are multiple ways to learn piano these days – online lessons, YouTube videos or good old face-to-face teaching with an actual human being, for example – and now you have the option to hone your skills in the metaverse.
PianoVision is billed as “the next evolution of the world’s most popular instrument,” and promises to “accelerate your learning” through AR and hand tracking. You can use it in conjunction with a MIDI keyboard or play on any flat surface with the built-in Air Piano.
Offering a collection of courses, PianoVision also includes “Sheet Music Insight” to help with your sight-reading and enables you to upload custom songs using the desktop app. Indicators show you which fingers to use to play specific songs.
The VR Music Hall is designed to give you the experience of playing in a concert environment, and there are more halls to come.
Compatible with the Oculus Quest and Quest 2 headsets, PianoVision (opens in new tab) is currently available through the MetaQuest App Lab (opens in new tab), which means that it’s still in development. Initial reviews seem positive, though, so it could be worth strapping on your headset for if you want to begin your piano learning journey.
