For Parents, Virtual Piano

For Parents

Virtual Piano is an online piano for the enjoyment of all. We aim to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for adults and children to experience playing the piano.

We work on two main principles; ‘enjoyment and education.’ Too few people get the opportunity to experience learning to play the piano. Virtual Piano aims to make that experience available, and provide enjoyment as well as education. We advise parental guidance for children under the age of 13 who might be engaging with the Virtual Piano social communities.


How much does it cost?
Virtual Piano is free to use. We support the site through advertising.

Is Virtual Piano safe for my child to use?
Virtual Piano aims to create a safe environment for all users. We enforce a code of conduct through our House Rules and any users who violate this will be blocked from our channels. While we attempt to monitor all channels, at times profanity or inappropriate content will appear, if you see any, please let us know by emailing admin@virtualpiano.net or by using the abuse/spam report filter on that particular network or channel.

Virtual Piano is an online website used by millions of people all over the world. We recommend parental guidance for children under 13 using the site and we strongly advise that children are appropriately educated about using the internet safely (Resources: Netsmartz, SafeKids, Get Safe Online).

What can I do to help my child learn to play the Virtual Piano?
Visit our How to Play section for instructions on how to use Virtual Piano. Here you will find some basic tips and starting points as well as songs for your child to play first. After that, you can help your son or daughter to improve by encouraging them to practice and to attempt increasingly more complex songs.

I’d like my son or daughter to learn to play the piano offline
