Chordana Play App Chordana Play is a free music app developed with the vision of enabling people who have no experience playing an electronic keyboard to have fun, while also helping seasoned keyboard players expand their repertoires.

Users can also play by touching the virtual keyboard, and they go even deeper with the lesson and scoring functions. Additionally, users can import song data (MIDI format) into Chordana Play, link to other electronic keyboards in Casio's portfolio (CTK-2500 & CTK- 3500 only) and connect to both Apple and Android tablets and smartphone using a standard audio cable.
