Our story

Creating pianini

“When I opened my Kids Music Academy, I was searching for a piano method to use with our little learners. But I could not find one that would work.
I wanted it to be both simple and exciting for small children and at the same time I wanted to stick to the topic by calling the keys their real names and include sight reading right from day one… so I developed my own method – Little M. One of the key points of this method is the way how all elements of piano learning are broken into individual parts and practiced separately which makes the process less overwhelming.
Parents were surprised when their child had suddenly no problem on concentrating, was excited about the songs and at the end of the lesson asked: What? Already?
After a while, those same 4-year-olds took part in our concerts and played bravely in front of audience. They gained self-confidence because they had been guided to take piano learning into their own hands.
But while the children enjoyed a fun and productive piano class, their practicing at home was not going as well as in class. Probably also because many parents did not have the time, energy, or musical knowledge to support.
So, I decided to develop a tool that would accompany children while practicing at home and that would also let them play the same fun musical games as we did in class.
This is how we started pianini…”


Maia Wiest, Founder & CEO

pianini - the music wonderland

In 2018 an international team of developers, technology engineers, illustration artists and designers began creating a complete musical universe for children age 4-7 - with piano plus rhythm, music theory and ear training - all in one app.
The focus was put on the very imaginary ways that children use when exploring and understanding new things. The pianini app is so intuitive and engaging, that it requires no reading skills or parental intervention.

Simple. Playful. Empowering

Simple - The pianini-app enables children to practice all aspects of classical piano learning independently - without adult guidance or interruptions.
Playful - We believe that when children experience mastering music themselves, they become self-confident little learners. With pianini we want to innovate how children discover and engage with music.
Empowering - Our mission is to introduce children to the art of mastering music through play.

At pianini we constantly strive to improve and learn more therefore we rely on building a close relation with teachers and parents all over the world. Their experience and perspectives are the magic key for our further development.
