Many of us would love to learn the piano. Imagine sitting down at the keys and thundering out popular tunes or composing a new masterpiece? Sadly, the dream of learning the piano is too often hampered by the prospect of taking costly, time-consuming and often frustrating lessons.
Fortunately, with the revolutionary The ONE Smart Piano, learning to play the instrument you love is significantly easier. The ONE is the world’s very first Apple MFi certified smart piano, using innovative and integrated technology to function with your mobile phone or tablet. With The ONE smart digital piano, you can master the basics of your favorite songs in as little as five minutes, and you can take your lessons whenever the mood strikes you.
Whether you are serious about taking your piano skills to the next level, or just want to experience the simple joy of tickling the ivories from time to time, here’s why The ONE Smart Piano is a great choice.
Learning to Play with this Smart Piano
Although the piano has enchanted listeners since the 18th century, its design has changed very little over the years. That is, until now. The ONE Piano system connects directly to iOS and Android devices. All you need is to download the dedicated app, plug your device into the piano, and you are ready to begin.
Here’s a few major benefits with this smart piano.
1. Learn to play with your favorite music
The ONE Piano app has an ever growing library of songs for you to practice. Currently, The One Piano is partnering directly with Alfred and Hal Leonard, two of the world’s largest sheet music publishers, to get access to the latest hits and the best oldies. There are thousands of sheet music pieces to choose from. Just search for the music sheets using the app. You can then listen to a demo and play along. You can easily stop and go, and repeat tricky passages.
2. Learn to play with lights in tandem with the video
What makes The ONE Smart Piano perfect for beginners is its use of lights to help guide the fingers. The piano has 88 sets of LEDs, showing blue for the left hand and red for the right. These guiding lights work in tandem with the video display on your connected phone or tablet to help you practice at the tempo that works best for you. If you find traditional musical notation daunting, this light learning system can help provide you with the fundamentals (and confidence) to tackle more complex pieces.
It also allows you to track your progress, making the process of learning the piano more rewarding. Should you prefer playing by ear to reading music, The ONE piano’s innovative features can provide you with all the assistance you need to further hone your skills.
3. Record and share your practices
In addition to having a wide array of facilities to help piano learners develop their talents, The ONE Smart Piano also lets you record your compositions and share them via social media.
4. Learn to play with intuitive video lessons
The extensive, ever-expanding app contains video tutorials for a wide range of musical pieces, as well as music theory lessons and games.

Despite being designed to work in complete harmony with iOS and Android devices, The ONE Smart Piano looks and feels like a regular digital upright piano. It has 88 hammer-action weighted keys, standard pedals and (of course) excellent sound quality. Each key has perfectly natural resistance, so you can play as softly or stridently as you like.
The ONE Smart Piano is available in two suave colors: Matte black and classic white. It is designed in Finland, fusing classic craftsmanship with modern design. There is also an impressive 128 GM tones and 6 drum set options to choose from, if you are looking for something a little different to the classic piano sound.
A Lighter Touch
If portability is what you are looking for, The ONE Light digital keyboard is the obvious choice. This innovative keyboard will allow you to practice anywhere and at any time. The ONE Light Keyboard works with an interactive music app and features 61 light up keys and 3D Hi-Fi quality sound. Though the keys are non-weighted, there is a built in sustain feature and digital pedal socket, so you don’t need to worry about losing the ability to play with feeling.
Compact, innovative and highly portable, The ONE Light Keyboard is available in two colors: Onyx black and white gold. It features a whopping 417 tones to choose from, including percussion options.
The innovative and versatile The ONE Smart Piano has been given rave reviews. It has also been recognized with numerous awards and accolades. These include the 2015 TechNode Hardware Award and the 2014 Shopping Carnival best-selling musical instrument. USA Today has also released an online video showcasing The ONE Smart Piano’s numerous features. Just last year, The ONE Smart Piano was one of the top 50 internet products of 2014. Most recently, it was named a CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Smart Home product category.
You are never too young or old to enjoy playing the piano, and The ONE can take this enjoyment to a whole new level. It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner, or are looking to fine-tune your skills. The ONE Smart Piano and The ONE Light digital keyboard are packed with enough settings, tones and interactive features to keep you enraptured.
