How to play
iCanPiano notes don't have sharps, flats or natural.
Instead -- there is a new note called 'The i-note'.

The i-notes

'i-notes' refers to all the black keys on the
piano keyboard.

There are flat i-notes and sharp i-notes.

Flat 'i-note'
Sharp 'i-note'
When an 'i-note' appears, play the black key to the right or left side of the white space!

For example:
Play the black note                   Play the black note     
to the left side of A                  to the right side of A

Advance reading
i-notes at the beginning of each piece indicates the key signature – the scale.

In this example there are 4 flats.
The scale is either Ab or Fm.

There is
no need to remember them while playing since all sharps and flats are already indicated inside the piece.
Key signature
In some cases there are sharp and flat notes that are White keys and not Black such as: Ebb, Fb, B# or G##.

In this case there is a Special i-note which is half black at the top or bottom
The following table shows how it is written.
Double flat - Double sharp
The Special i-note can be found in some advance pieces.
