There are piano apps like Pianist Pro and Piano Lessons PianoMan. I'm sure you could even use real lessons and guides with it.

Pianist Pro for iPad:

Yes it is possible. There are good piano apps on the iPad, as shown above.

Will it work for you? That is the question.

I personally love having a piano everywhere with me, great for just whipping out and having a play. The record mode in pianist pro allows you to sketch out melodies and harmonies as well.

LOL yeh as i was writing that i was like thinking 'hmmm, nah' and left it hahaha!

Yeah - i cant praise the iPad enough for music applications. It depends on your genre/style. However I love the Korg iElectribe (i own a hardware version of that app... it cost $1200 - the app cost $12).

There are more apps i would recommend, just don't have my iPad near by... but its great!!

But isn't the screen to small to play the piano?

Not really.

I would certainly say that about the iphone version of the apps.

I recently took the iPad on a holiday and used it musically with headphones and it was a godsend... at no point was i cursing any aspect about it. One positive i noticed was as you're not pressing any physical keys, my hands didn't tire anywhere as fast - and i could play far quicker due to the mechanics of having a flat screen, opposed to pressing down individual keys etc.

Anything is possible if you just believe.

Since the IPad has a limited display it is not possible to learn the 'entire' piano. Plus I know that some piano's have three paddles at the bottom. But never the less it is possible to learn the certain songs on the piano as noted above.

I have played piano for around 8 years. Nothing is better to learn/play on unless its a real piano.
