About this game

The ultimate music reading training app. Designed like a video game and with strong pedagogical concepts in mind, Complete Music Reading Trainer is the fastest way to learn to read sheet music and improve your sight-reading skills. Whichever clef you want to learn and whatever your instrument is, the app will make you master any chosen clef or clef combination while rendering the learning process enjoyable.


Features

• 270 progressive drills covering all seven clefs (treble, bass, alto, tenor, soprano, mezzo-soprano and baritone clefs) over 3 levels / 26 chapters
• Content is organized in such a way that you can choose which levels or chapters are relevant to your instrument and focus on these, whether you play the guitar and only need treble clef, piano and need treble and bass clef, cello and need a mix of bass and tenor clefs, etc.: all instruments are covered
• Practice key signatures up to 6 sharps/flats in progressive key signature drills
• Practice common clef combinations in mixed clef drills

• 4 sheet music display styles: modern, classic, handwritten and jazz

• Don't want to follow the preestablished path of progression? Create and save your own custom drills and rehearse them at your own convenience

Excellent app for improving your note recognition speed. I graduated from college with a degree in music, then graduated from a conservatory. Even if you're only interested in treble/bass clefs, this app is well worth the cost, and the ability to plug in a midi controller makes it a must-have for anyone (beginner or intermediate) who wants to strengthen their sight reading speed. I'd *love* to see chords added (or a new app with chords), but that omission doesn't diminish the usefulness, as-is.

As a broke college student that can't afford lessons or services like "Playground Sessions" (which seems to be the best reading-oriented piano program), this app is a miracle. I've tried working through lesson books and all kinds of cheaper alternatives, but my reading ability has never improved at all for the amount of time I put into it. Another reason I think it's so great for me is that it demands my attention in the way my attention has learned to be used with video games, apps, etc. It's like happening in real time for my eyes, and I have to react for it to keep moving. It literally forces me to be focused on it the same way a video game demands me to focus in order to react to it in order to be any good. There's something about the way it moves on a screen that my brain understands better than reading stagnant sheets of paper. I can lose focus and there are no visual cues to bring it back in on a piece of paper. That means I could drift off and be totally unaware I've stopped thinking about, and often playing, the song in front of me. But if my focus wanders with the app, I have a visual cue of the motion halting to realize I'm losing it. If the devs are reading this, you guys are are being ROBBED by essentially giving this away. This is more helpful for reading than any method books I've tried. I hate that your brilliant idea isn't reaching the audience that it could be. I mean, especially with the arcade mode? You've literally blended the past and the future with this. It gives people that have grown up in the digital age a way to learn reading in a way my brain is already familiar with. It's so incredible. You devs deserve so much more than what you're asking for. Although, I appreciate having been able to pay for it. I'd pay way more if I could

Good idea if implemented properly. These developers still have a lot of ground to cover. An example: in the Arcade mode one needs to match notes on a piano keyboard. It works rather well for building memory associations. Unless, of course, they start asking for the notes outside the visible portion of the keyboard. Since sliding or zooming isn't an option, the app counts those as missed notes (and 3 of those means you lose).

Thank you for the feedback, but the piano keyboard, or circle, is not about giving the right octave, but the note name. Just read the note, and input the note name via the virtual keyboard. If you don't like this "octave mismatch", you can either use the note circle, or use a MIDI keyboard/microhpone input. Best, Stéphane.
