I’m completely floored! Finally a decent sight reading app every student should have access too. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing and fun for the eye, it seems like it has everything I’m looking for…which is so so rare. Literally. I would think “oh cool, but does it have THIS?” And ten seconds later I find it. Happy premium member and soon to be sight reading pro 💕💕

Feedback after a quick 3 minutes of playing.

Feedback: I just played this app for a few mins. While playing Game Drills and having to find the correct note on the keyboard while seeing the note on the staff, when you turn the phone landscape, it expands the piano keyboard, but the grand staff isn’t fully shown. So when I have to choose the correct Bass Clef note, I’m unable to see which note it wants me to find. You should shrink the grand staff to accommodate it otherwise you can only see the Treble Clef and the very top portion of the Bass Clef.

You should also allow us to disable the microphone while using the virtual piano keyboard. There’s no need for a microphone while using that feature. It drains battery faster and it feels a little unsettling knowing that it’s listening when not needed.

I’m using an iPhone 14 Pro Max and was using the virtual piano keyboard, if it helps you to determine how to fix this. This is just my initial feedback, will update the review at a later time. 3 stars for now.

Thanks for trying the app. On iPad, Virtual Piano iPad works well in both landscape & portrait. But yes, in Virtual Piano on the iphone, it may crop off the bottom due to lack of screen real estate. We will see how to improve this, but because the virtual keyboard takes up the bottom half of the small iphone screen in Landscape, the full Grand Staff was too much of a challenge to squeeze in Landscape mode (we should have disabled it completely for iphone). In addition, Visual graphics can usually be reduced, but the virtual keyboard cannot, or else it would become unplayable.

RE: Microphone. Please note that the mic is off when playing Virtual Piano, just as it says in the introductory screens of the app. The mic is only active during Real Piano mode, and it only detects musical pitches, not general sounds. If you have any other questions or concerns, please email me: info@notequest.net and we will be glad to sort it out for you. Thank you for the feedback. I encourage you to give it a couple more tries and if you feel inclined to change the rating, that would be great. I'm a solo app founder/owner/piano teacher. Thank you! GL

Very effective learning app!

I use NoteQuest every single day in my piano studio, and encourage parents to purchase for their students. Favorite feature (for both teacher and students) is Note Selector. When students build their own drills for problem areas, they are excited and empowered, rather than frustrated. This is a Must Have Tool for anyone learning to play piano! I highly recommend.
