James Williams

ABRSM Examiner, Piano Teacher
"Playing with Spike is a revelation for the beginner's piano teacher. This new app provides an exciting and creative interactive outlet for young piano students, allowing them to learn new skills and knowledge within the colourfully animated world of Spike."

Phillipa Thomas

Piano and Singing Teacher
"I have used this app with success for a number of young students and I have found it to be a marvellous way to motivate the more distracted ones by offering it as a reward for the last ten minutes of a lesson. The children love being able to interact with characters similar to their own age and they often ask me if they can try certain games again to increase their result."

Chris Ballard

Classroom Music Teacher
"I think this app is a great way to introduce young children to the world of learning piano. As a music teacher, it pleases me that the content seamlessly integrates theory and practical elements but at the same time looks to make the process fun and enjoyable for the student/child interacting. I highly recommend it!!!"
