This app help me a lot. I use it all the time. Keeps me fresh and sharp reading the notes.
It gives me a great sheet reading work out on the go!
I'm glad I came across this app, because as time has gone by I'm finding it PERFECT to teach me how to read music and recognize notes faster. I highly recommend it to any music student or anyone interested in reading music.
Good GUI, useful and compact options for practice!
I don't buy a lot apps but I bought this because I learnt it first from another student and she seems always pick up new song faster than everyone else. After read all others review, I decided to get one. It totally worth it and it does help!!!!
I would recommend it to others since it works and I m very pleased to see the improvement from my young students. However, I am just curious why it cannot recognize the well tuned real piano sound. It would be perfect if it can do that. App creator, can you add this feature?
The improvement I want to see most, from this or any other sight reading app: please make it show more than one note at a time, in a phrase that makes musical sense! And please also include chords to play! If you're like me, it's not that hard to pick out isolated notes, one by one (C! G#!). But what is hard is playing a series of notes (or a musical phrase) in the bass clef, or picking out a chord on the bass clef. You could just make it so that if a chords is shown where the notes should be struck at the same time, the player should just arpeggiate the chord (play one note at a time). 1. For me, it's a waste of time to switch octaves on the keyboard. I'd like an option for it to disregard the octave and just say if you got the note right. 2. I'd prefer the "zoomed in" keyboard to have 2 octaves displayed instead of just one. So if it gives you a descending series of notes like C-B-A you can descend from C instead of having to switch to an octave lower and leap up to B. 3. When you strike the note on the keyboard, it should play the note you just hit, and show the note you played on the staff next to the "quiz note" - in green if correct, or red if incorrect. I don't have perfect pitch, but it's still really disorienting to play one note on the keyboard and hear a different one sound, because it has automatically advanced to the next one. 4. You should be able to choose the range of notes on a staff or on the full keyboard. With just the sliders, you have to keep jiggering with it to get the range you want. 5. There should be an option for it to switch key signatures randomly instead of practicing an entire round in the same key.
The option to limit the number of keys to be quizzed on only works occasionally. The option to turn off incidentals doesn't work, making this a useless app for the beginning student.
When I started using this I barely could read music. When I first tested myself with this app, I was less than 25% accurate & it took me over 15 seconds to recall which note associates with what key. After using this app every day for a couple of weeks, I'm now 100% accurate & my time is below 4 seconds. Not where I want it to be but I'm improving, noticeably, & enjoy the rate at which I'm learning; be it as a beginner. My ability to look up from my piano practice & read then process what I see, so that my playing doesn't stop or slow down, has improved radically. Love this app!
I first learn this app from one of my students and then I purchased one too. I want to see if this can be a good alternative method to help some students to improve their sight reading skills. After playing it awhile, I decided to introduce it to my students because this app almost can simulate every possible piano music notes you need to know. In the mean time, I especially like the feature of customizing the delay to display a hint which is very useful for the music beginners. It may need some effort to figure out how to utilize it but it is worth to try. After all, it is long journey to learn and play piano and I just hope try something innovative to get there faster.
