Which Video Games Can Help a Child Learn to Play the Piano?

Two video games that can help children learn to play the piano include "Synthesia" and "Keyboard Trainer" from ZebraKeys.com. "Synthesia" is a comprehensive piano training software program, while "Keyboard Trainer" is a smaller tool that helps children memorize keys.

"Synthesia" gives players the chance to learn the piano at their own speed, since it waits for players to hit the right note before moving to the next. It also lets parents and teachers track progress so they can assess what the child is proficient in and what areas need work. With "Keyboard Trainer," the game highlights one key on the keyboard, and the child must identify it from a list of notes below.
