You playing and enjoying learning an instrument. This is our vision.
ColorTones for the piano
ColorTones for Piano
Playing the piano never was that easy. You don't need to read notes. Just start playing and learn at the same time. You can directly experience the fun and delight of making music.
What do I need to start?
You just need a tablet computer, a piano and the ColorTones starter-kit. That's it. The starter-kit comprises a mirror-clipper and color stripes for your piano keyboard. The clipper is a simple optical device which you must clip on the tablet's front-camera, so that it films your keyboard and hands. The stripes must be attached to every key of the piano and help our software detecting your piano. Furthermore, the stripes assign a unique color to each note. That makes it even easier for you to follow along a ColorTones tutorial.
ColorTones for Guitar & Ukulele
When you learn ukulele, you would be looking on the notes sheet or the tab and then on your fingers. We skip that. Just look on your fingers and augmented reality projects the notes as colorful effects right on your instrument!
What do I need to start?
Just a front camera. Open your laptop and get going.
Our first product for piano will launch first in early 2024. However, our second priority is to bring to you ColorTones for ukulele and guitar. As soon as possible.
Color and joy for every instrument. Be it the drums, chimes, cello, violin, flute, cajon ...
Piano is just the beginning.
What can I do with ColorTones?
You can discover new ways of learning, recordning and sharing your favorite songs:
1 - Learning
Use your piano (electric or non-electric) film it and ColorTones upgrades your learning experience as you can see in the video. Numbers indicate which finger to use, and the video only proceeds when you hit the correct key with the correct finger.
While learning you are also playing! You receive tailored feedback and rewards for the efforts you make.

Now, creating videos and tutorials of piano videos is easier then ever.
Instead of writing down sheet music for hours, just film your song and ColorTones transforms the recording right into a Piano Tile Video and into a ColorTones tutorial.
No electrical piano needed, no coding and no video cutting required!
3 - Sharing
For the guitar there is that globally known platform ultimate guitar to find chords for every song, to play along. But especially for the piano you need more than chords!
