Tech Tuesday: HanonPlus iPad app

This year my students will be using a brand new app that is out called HanonPlus. HanonPlus is by the same creators of SightReadPlus and SightRead minor. If you missed those reviews you can find them below.

HanonPlus has a very similar feel to the other two apps I mentioned, which is nice. I appreciate that it allows you to log in more then one user (up to 50 users!) so individual students in your studio can keep track of their progress.

You can use HanonPlus with an acoustic piano or keyboard. HanonPlus doesn’t require any connections as it simply uses the microphone to hear what students are playing. It listens for note and timing accuracy.

There are several options after logging into HanonPlus. Students can choose Major or minor keys. It has multi-key exercises and different rhythms are also available. Beginning rhythm patterns from quarter, eighth and dotted. Advance patterns such as eight, sixteenth and dotted.

I think the only thing that would give a little “bling” to this app is to include rhythm tracks.

HanonPlus is available for $7.99 and includes all the exercises. There are no additional in-app purchases needed. Everything is there and ready to play.

  1. I’ve just found your website and am so excited to read your reviews and ideas for me to drag myself into the 21st century of teaching piano with technology. I would love to win any of these fabulous apps!

  2. I would probably use Hanon Plus with EVERY student. I already use the Sight Read apps and find them very valuable. Thanks for creating the Hanon Plus. I hope I see my name as the winner!

  3. I am presently using the SightRead apps with my students and would love to use HanonPlus as well. Please enter my name in the contest! It seems I hardly win anything these days, so here’s hoping…….

  4. Wow, Hanon meets the 21st Century!! He took almost as long as I did to get here. Can’t wait to put a new, modern spin on Hanon with my students, so I would certainly love to win this app for my new iPad!

  5. Loving the look of the Hanon app. I’m sure I would use it in my studio! However I would be more than happy to have any of them!

  6. I’d love to use HanonPlus in my studio! Students enjoy having personalized accounts and being able to quantify their progress, and everything we do on the iPad comes with a certain cache to them. Thank you so much for this post, and the giveaway!

  7. I would love to introduce my students to HanonPlus! Everything we do on the iPad comes with a certain cache, and they always love the opportunity to measure progress through independent accounts. Thanks so much for posting about this, and the giveaway!

  8. I have a Tech Lab in my piano studio and would love to add the Sight Reading Apps to it for my students to practice before of after their lesson. Everyone benefits from extra sight reading.
    Thank-you so much for the giveaway!
