Synthesia is an easy-to-use Mac application that provides you with a simple and fun way to learn how to play the piano. You can use this tool regardless if you are a beginner or an experienced piano player looking for a fun and convenient way to practice your skills.

The first thing you will have to do, after launching Synthesia, is to create a profile in order to keep track of your score. You can either create a simple one or a Synthesia online account with extra statistics available. Once you have done that, you can start practicing by playing one of the provided songs, lessons or exercises. You can add additional songs and exercises into your list with just a few clicks of a mouse.

Synthesia allows you to use any hand you want in order to practice or play any song (or you can use both hands) and you can even set the speed you want to play your songs with. Furthermore, if you are uncomfortable with the key assignments for the piano keys, you can easily change that by accessing the "Keyboard Setup" menu.

These are just some of the features that Synthesia puts at your disposal. Get your hand on this fun Mac application and discover how easy it can be to learn piano or practice your skills from your computer.
