Great App

Great app to quickly speed up your note recognition. It has great exercise customisation if you want a more advanced challenge. I would love to see chords spread over both clefs though.

Nice concept, needs work.

The keyboard scale goes from C to B. The notes on the stave, however, in the first couple of exercises cover the tones E on the bottom line to F on the top line. I think it is confusing for beginners that the short piano scale doesn’t correspond to all the notes on the stave. I am trying to improve my sight-reading, but my partner is a total beginner. I think either the piano could be two octaves, give you the option to scrub up to the next octave or start on the note F, though that’s not typical. Just a tweak. It’s a nice app otherwise, though there is a lot of completion out there.

Great app, needs a few tweaks

Firstly, when you connect the app to MIDI and then play Bb1 or B1 on a physical keyboard, the app crashes. A little bit annoying knowing the bug exists.

Secondly, is it possible for you to add a setting in where if you get a not wrong it doesn’t skip because I would like to correct my mistake when I get it wrong.
