About this app

With Halbestunde’s piano sheet music scanner and note reader you can play all of your favorite pieces of music with just your phone.

Set the tempo, listen to the right or the left hand and get feedback to improve your piano playing skills.

Halbestunde Sheet Music Reader scans your music sheet and digitizes the music piece so that you can listen to your favourite pieces and learn the keys and notes at your own rhythm.

In the free version, you can:
+ Scan or photograph any music sheet
+ Control hands and tempo
+ Receive feedback at any time
+ Identify your learning areas and practice on them specifically

In the premium version:
+ Upload sheet music photos & PDFs
+ Statistics show your progress

Just start playing and the app will listen to your notes and mark whether you have made mistakes. It can recognize note and rhythm errors. And you can always compare your play with the original music sheet.

Halbestunde is a great complement to other piano learning apps such as Simply Piano, flowkey, MuseScore, Chordify, forScore, Perfect Piano, Yousician, Piano Maestro, and more.

We are continually working on new features, which you will of course get in our free and premium versions. Stay curious or let us know your wishes.

An app with an ironic twist. The sole purpose of this app is to assist those who cannot read sheet music and learn how to read it. Every damn image, photo from my gallery or camera and even a damn PDF, every file format that has clear distinct notes is not recognisable and somehow fails to be read by the app. Fix it or it will remain a failure.

The sheet music scanner is not very good. I have taken multiple pictures and made it as clear as possible and I literally haven't seen it work once.

Almost there but not quite. Subscribed to upload a pdf. Its done a decent job, although at one point three whole bars were just missing, no obvious reason why. I think the issue here is then lack of ability to make corrections. I expect a couple of errors in the conversion but at the moment it's probably more trouble than it's worth for the price. Also for some reason it seems to be impossible to restart from the beginning as well. Almost a great app! Will try to edit rating if features added.
