Hello!
My wife wants to start learning piano but at home with an app for her Android tablet. She would like something that is connected to the Kawai so that she can learn sight reading with games, or whatever works best. Guess bluetooth is ideal but a USB cable works too to avoid latency.
Not sure if there are any good apps that take you from basics to get a decent base to learn from there.

Thanks for any recommendation (an not, actual piano lessons be it remotely or in person are not an option).

I have same set up on CA79 - I use a notation reading software and use one of the pedals as page turner - if using Bluetooth - which is fine for this remember that it will not attach if the instrument is wedded to another device so you are not frustrated by non connecting etc. There are many apps but if you are looking for play-along with the measure there is a thread on here quite new that amplifies these but some if not most are pay to use, I did see one at least that is free to use. One needs to make sure the music pages are real notes from notation in .pdf not just scanned pages turned into to a .pdf.
I have downloaded to my pc a software that I can write pieces scanned to make proper .pdfs that is free to use/ It may seem a fag but it serves its own use to practice writing notation and is a perverse reward in itself!
Hope this helps and feel sure that someone on here or in the digital piano section has crack one so maybe worth re-posting in there too> Happy days :>)

I would like to share a little of my experience.
I recently started using remote courses la touche musicale and so far, I’m happy with the results. The most important thing for me is that I can do it when I feel comfortable (for example, in the evening after work to relax and distract myself). And no stress if I have something that does not work out. And it can work with any type of device.

Features that I liked are as follows:
• Play with a virtual piano keyboard.
• A lot of practice (a great volume of free songs for different levels).
• Play your favorite music without a music sheet.
• Connect your own keyboard to interact with the virtual piano and learn at your own pace.
• The application waits for you until you play the right notes on the keyboard.
• In order to learn the song, play at a reduced speed.
• Replay a specific section until you perfect it.
• Play by working left hand and right hand separately.
• You can identify your mistakes and follow your progress thoroughly

You can find different types of songs here. I can enjoy the piano sound and away from stress anytime. Also, I’m feeling like I’m gaining piano experience that can improve my piano skills and the speed of my fingers. Once you start, you will love it, I promise.
I hope I was able to help
