Virtual Piano is an online music education platform and the best piano learning app available freely online. We aim to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for adults and children to experience playing the piano online. 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 online 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 to use Virtual Piano?
Virtual Piano is free to use. We support the site predominantly through advertising. Should you wish to access additional features and not see advertising, a Virtual Piano Plus membership is available for those who wish to purchase this.
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 inappropriate content posted by the community may appear, if you see any, please use the abuse/spam report filter on that particular network or channel. As much as possible we use category blocking so that inappropriate advertising is not served on the website and to keep the website family-friendly. 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.
