Wikipiano was launched in September 2008 with the aim of indexing as many piano scores as possible. It also aims to be an archive with free music lessons and piano recordings, covering any style, at various levels of difficulty.
The sheet music and audio files in Wikipiano should belong to the Public Domain or should be created under a Creative Commons license - to respect their copyright , while at the same time trying to make the music learning and training accessible to everyone.
The music lessons aim to cover theory, techniques, tips and tricks for playing piano and often they will be based on the analysis of a particular piece of music or a given genre.
Wikipiano is a "wiki" website, it is based on collaboration between its members, which can add or edit content in the archive. The authors of each contribution is credited and their pages are rated by the community.
Users can also exchange musical ideas, recommend music, offer private tuition or otherwise interact through our forum.
Wikipiano is also a tool for promoting new artists. We encourage members to submit their own compositions and listen to the work of new musicians.
