Air Performer and Piano Partner Apps make practise fun
Roland’s free apps for Apple iOS devices will help keep your child motivated by making practise engaging and fun. With the Air Performer app, they can play along with their favourite songs from an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch wirelessly* through the F-20’s sound system. The Piano Partner iPad app includes Flash Card, which challenges your child to identify notes that are shown on the iPad’s display and sounded from the piano, with awards given after five challenges. Available from the Apple App Store, these powerful apps use today’s mobile technology to enhance your child’s piano development, and most importantly, make playing piano fun.
*Wireless communication requires the Roland WNA1100-RL Wireless USB Adapter (sold separately) and a wireless LAN access point with an Internet connection.
Intelligent accompaniment helps develop a sense of rhythm
With its onboard Rhythm feature, the F-20 lets your child experience music with a beautiful backing ensemble, so they can have fun and develop their timing skills at the same time. The F-20 automatically accompanies their playing, intelligently following with chord backing and rhythms. 32 different accompaniment styles cover a variety of musical genres, and it’s simple and intuitive to select rhythms from the F-20’s panel or via the Piano Partner app. Students can also play with drums and bass, or drums only, without the other backing instruments; a great feature for daily piano practise.
Digital advantages make learning piano at home easy
Unlike acoustic pianos, which require regular tuning and maintenance, the digital F-20 never needs to be tuned, so your child can enjoy perfect piano sounds all year round. It also includes a wide range of useful onboard features for practising, such as a metronome, a recorder for capturing performances, and a Twin Piano mode that splits the keyboard so two people can play side by side in the same octave ranges. You can easily adjust the piano’s volume to suit the room, or use headphones for private practise without disturbing others. Additionally, separate output jacks let you connect the piano to an external sound system for parties and family gatherings at home. The F-20 also includes electric piano, harpsichord, organ, guitar, strings, and even synthesizer sounds, allowing students to explore a world of instruments beyond the piano.
