Learning Piano on Computer – What configuration is needed?
For learning piano on your computer, your computer need not be a high-end pc with tons of memory to be able to run these learning packages, if you can play games and listen to songs on your computer, it can also be used to run most of these learning software.
A Pentium processor, 32 Mb RAM, CD-ROM drive, sound card and speakers is what you need to run these software packages for learning piano on computer. Some software may even run with lower configuration but this would be a decent configuration to have.

Learning Piano on PC – How do you install and use?
All these software for learning piano on computer have the standard instructions on how to install and is very easy to install on your computer. Once installed, you can start playing the lessons/exercises which are provided in the software.
If you are wondering if it is necessary to have a MIDI keyboard which will need to be connected to the PC, for running these software…then I would say not really…but it will be much easier to learn and practice the piano on your computer, since the software will then be able to prompt you whether you are playing the lessons correctly or not. Good feature to have!
A lot of piano teaching packages nowadays offer a 4-5 octaves MIDI-compatible keyboard as part of the package. The MIDI keyboard can be connected to a USB slot or to the MIDI/joystick port of your sound card.
