ABRSM Sight-Reading Trainer contains 155 brand new specially composed pieces of sight-reading for Piano Grades 1 to 5. But, before you can play them you have to unlock them!
Each piece is preceded by a series of games designed to improve your ability to spot the features, patterns and characteristics of the music before you play it. Test yourself and see if you can achieve a three-star score in these fun games:
Rhythm Match - hear rhythms from the piece of Sight-Reading and identify the corresponding notation.
Pitch Patterns - focus on a small section of the music and answer questions about pitches, patterns, fingering and keyboard geography.
Quick Fire Five and What’s the Difference - study the whole piece and answer a series of questions about it.
Learn how to make the 30 seconds of preparation time you have in your exam really count!
Complete the challenges to unlock the pieces and start a practice streak.
Strong sight-reading skills empower musicians to communicate with one another through the language of music, as well as learn new pieces quickly and accurately. Regular practice with ABRSM Sight-Reading Trainer will help you avoid the pitfalls and achieve sight-reading success!
Hey, phone users! Music notation is complex and phone screens are small. This app is best viewed on an iPad but there's still lots you can learn and enjoy if you’re using the app on a smaller phone. Make sure you check out the preview screenshots in the App Store.
We’ve given this app a major visual overhaul and improved the navigation.
Ratings and Reviews
Great, just a few things
I am really bad at sight reading and this app is really useful, just wish there were a few more things they added in, like actually listening to the piano to check if notes\rhythm right and if the answer is wrong, revealing the right answer.
Good for adult beginner
I am early in my third year of piano lessons as a “mature” beginner, and I use this app several times a week to improve my sight reading. I wish there were an option for U.S. terms (quarter note, whole note), because I am not as fluent with crotchets and semi-breves, but other than that I like these exercises. Slightly kid-oriented in its design (cartoon characters and exclamation points) by not so much that I can’t ignore the chirpiness.
