Terrible just terrible
I love this app because it is helping me re-learn how to sight read. The metrics really help you chart your progress. Even my six year old thinks it is a game! I play a few rounds every night before bed and have improved remarkably after just a little practice.
I have been practicing on the iPhone App that I also like. But the iPad app with the longer keyboard is a better challenge. Well worth the money.
Great program, but needs a midi keyboard input as well as adjustable 8va/15ma start notes. Also should have a mode which highlights the correct key immediately when a wrong key is pressed. Finally, they keyboard should be slideable so you can work on slightly higher and lower ranges without having to select a new keyboard range. Otherwise, well worth the price. Practice every day for 1 month with this and you WILL learn to sight read. Start with just a few notes and add more as you get better. I have been playing for 35 years, and this program taught me to sight read.
Good emulation of actual grand staff.
I know how to play the piano, but I would play by ear. But reading, basically I only really knew B, middle C and D by site, everything else, I had to count. This app has helped me to improve exponentially. I've probably gone about 2 dozen rounds or thereabouts in the past couple weeks and I'm already including sharps and flats and reading most notes with less that a second's response time. That for me is a vast improvement, far cry from where I was. I get excited anticipating "playing the game". Nerd, I know, but it beats the doll drum of siting at the piano with even simple practice pieces on paper. It's definitely how it's set up that makes the difference. It's like a game and you get immediate feedback if you get it wrong, rather than trying to guess while sitting by yourself. Love it!
Don't buy it not worth it at all
I really enjoy practicing (playing) with sight reader
Selects random notes and you identify them with a keyboard display. It has a good setting menu to customize to satisfaction.
This app has helped a lot in improving my speed and accuracy. I've been playing keyboards for 50 yrs.
