For any parent struggling with a child addicted to video games, a new app is under development that can transform “gamers” into piano virtuosos.

Piano teacher Andy Fling has struck a chord with kids who love video games, and also love banging away on a piano or electric keyboard.

For kids, the thought of learning piano can conjure up image of tedious hours with a stern piano teacher.  But when these same kids are able to combine learning piano with their natural tendency to play video games, a whole new world opens up for them.

“I’ve taught thousands of kids to play piano over the last twenty years, and learned a long time ago that kids learn best when they’re having fun.” says Fling “Over the past few years, I noticed that many of my best students loved video games.  When we combined their natural gaming instincts with learning piano, their results skyrocketed!”

Fling developed an iPad app called “iPiano Tutor” which allowed his students to learn quickly and fall in love with learning to play piano. To accomplish this, he tapped into the strategies of video game developers, motivating students to practice while making it a fun and rewarding experience for them.

“The results for piano students have been nothing short of remarkable” gushes Fling “We are so encouraged with the early progress by our students using the iPiano Tutor, we are rolling out full-scale development of the app.”

The iPiano Tutor app is being developed by Jiffy Software, the world’s largest iOS developer. Fling is raising money for the full iTutor Piano app through Indiegogo, the largest global crowdfunding platform.

Fling is offering generous incentives for people who join in the development of the iPiano Tutor through Indieogogo, such as Free Sheet Music (forever), and much more.  To learn more about the iPiano Tutor app, visit
