Guitar Pro for piano?

Hello, gametabbers!

I've been playing the guitar for a while now, and thought it would be cool to give the piano a shot.
I learned to read sheets and I can play a few easy songs so far.

But is there a program for piano sheets that works like guitar pro? Something that showed the sheets while playing a MIDI version of the music. If it could show the piano keys it would help a lot, too.

I searched around on Google but didn't find anything conclusive. I can find tons of sheets, which is great, but it's hard to play more complex songs just with that, specially for a beginner.
And I'm tired of youtube tutorials!

The first thing that comes to mind is Synthesia. It's not exactly like Guitar Pro but it does play the MIDI and there is a sheet music and piano view. It also shows you which notes are coming. It's also a nice little tool to use when learning piano songs (It's pretty much dedicated to piano).
Have a look on google and youtube for what it looks like. It runs for $40 but is on sale for $29 for summer. There's also a demo if you want to try it out first.

on guitar pro you can go to

on guitar pro you can go to view and select piano keyboard to see where notes would land on a piano, probably a lot of the guitar duets on here would be simple to turn into piano arrangements

Yup, Jacob is correct. That's the case with GP6. Not sure about 5 as I haven't used that in ages.

I think Guitar pro 5 can't

I think Guitar pro 5 can't manage the highest and lowest piano notes but GP 6 should do the trick.
You can view the notes on the keyboard in both.
You can also try Finale.

As Jordan said I don't think

As Jordan said I don't think the Piano in GP5 has the same range of notes, however it does have a midi keyboard that shows you where the note is the tab is played relative to a real keyboard.
