The app for those who are serious about learning and practicing sight reading!
Use the on screen keyboard or a midi compatible keyboard to learn the right way!
This app is designed to mimic the look and style of real sheet music. This is important when you transition between this app and your music as it will be a natural transition. Another important feature of this app is to read from left to right while having multiple notes on the staff at the same time as it would be with real music. This app does that in the most efficient way possible for the limited screen.
- Simple interface that will allow you to naturally transition from app to sheet music
- Use an on screen keyboard or connect through MIDI to a compatible device
- Very customizable practice options
- Progressive lessons for treble, bass and the grand staff
- Real piano sounds
- Optional visual aids with hints when you are stuck and note values on the keys
Don't use flashcards to learn to read music when you can learn it the right way.
There are many features planned. Please contact us with any feedback you may have.
I'm adding 3 more songs that can be played by purchasing the premium upgrade. Please reach out to me if you have feedback on my new changes! My direct email is accessible through the app settings.

Great Sight-Reading Trainer
This app is great for improving your sight reading skills. Having not really played the piano since my childhood I knew my music reading was always my weakness and this definitely challenges you to improve. Unlike playing or learning a new song where you tend to learn what to play and not always to follow the music, this requires you to read each note and mentally learn notes and their positions.
Sometimes I have issues with external keyboard connections (it says network connected but doesn’t recognise presses until I disconnect and reconnect) and sometimes it says connected when I disconnect but this is quite likely because I’m using USB-C and a USB to Midi adapter so I’m not reducing score for that.
I would love to have user profiles though in the app. I use it for getting my children (and wife) to practice their sight reading and it’d be great to have their metrics stored in their own profile - currently I reset practice data before they have a go just so I can see how they’ve performed which doesn’t make it easy to see how they’re improving.
This app is great at easing you in to the basics of sight reading. It starts off simple before showing you the higher and lower ranges of the treble, bass and grand staff. It does that very well and in what seemed like no time, I found my self sight-reading up to 3 ledger lines up and down on both clefs! An improvement happening so fast, I could even notice it happening the day I got the app.
Just one thought, it would be cool if the sheet music started scrolling as you played the notes, otherwise I wouldn't know the notes on the next page until it scrolled. I think there should also be a mode where you have rhythms to play as well, and this could go well with the scrolling as you'd have to look ahead and also it would encourage you to not go back and fix your mistakes when sight reading! Just a thought. Anyways, I would recommended this app to some of my musician and non-musician friends! 5/5
For people who can't sight read
Love the app, came back to playing piano after a few years of life got in the way and playing this game a few times a day during breaks at work has really helped me speed up my sight reading times. Still got a long way to go, but it's so much easier to play with this app on the go rather than waiting till I get home to my piano to practise! Well done!
Update: managed to sightread my entire way through the sheet music for Moonlight Sonata for the first time ever! Didn't expect to be able to do that so soon, will be trying my hand at other pieces too. I can't thank you enough :)
