An app for choral singers who don't read music well.
Snap a photo or import JPG or PDF.
Touch notes in the photo to hear the pitch.

Whether you sing in a choir, or a barbershop quartet, or other vocal group, What's My Note lets you hear and learn the pitches in your sheet music. You can repeat single notes or intervals as many times as you like.

Use What's My Note? to read published choral music - the kind used by high school choruses, church choirs, musical theater, and barbershop quartets. If you are not sure that What's My Note? will read your music, e-mail us a photo, and we'll let you know.

For a demo, please view the video on our website.

(What's My Note DOES NOT play scores from start to finish, does not play more than one voice at a time, does not interpret rhythms, does not recognize or play piano or instrumental parts. Hand-written manuscripts and most forms of popular music probably won't work.)

You can import PDFs and JPEGs, and use What's My Note's OCR feature on any device. To photograph music, What's My Note? requires an 8 megapixel camera, available on these models: iPhone 4s and later, iPod Touch 6th Generation, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad Mini 4.

Love the app

I like this app very much, the only thing I would like it to do yet is when you press and hold for the note that it would show if it was like and f or c or b flat! Something like that.

This is a great idea, with major short comings

I love the concept that an app on my ipad/iphone can sort through the key of a piece of sheet music I can select the notes in my part that I need help with. However, I can’t imagine why pray tell, can you not import a pdf file? I’ve go perhaps 400 plus pieces of music in pdf format that I can’t import... I have to print the piece I want to review, then take a picture of it? Tedious. Let’s hope in future versions we find the ability to import pdf for analysis. This alone would bring me to issue a 5 star rating.

Well worth the purchase

This app does exactly what it claims. They also provide clear directions on how to adjust settings to enable various options. This is exactly what I needed to be able to practice my part whenever I have a free moment.
