Built on the success of the original 'StaffWars', StaffWars Live offers game play designed to aid students in instrumental practice. Choose your instrument, key signature, scale and note range, then play the notes that appear on the staff with your instrument to destroy them before they damage you clef. Notes get faster with every ten correct and you get three lives.
Press the "Settings" button to change your instrument, scale, key signature and adjustable note range. All notes are in the instruments' written pitch (i.e. Clarinet in C major would be concert Bb Major)
All your scores are saved when exiting the game, so you can track your improvement. Scales include Major, Major Blues, Minor Blues, Chromatic
Need to practice transposition? StaffWars Live has got you covered. All notes are in the instruments’ written pitch, so you can be a french horn player and select ‘Trumpet' to practice transposing to Bb.

Note range = from 3 Spaces Below to 3 Spaces Above Clef
Start speed adjustable.

***NOTE*** - Make sure your instrument is in tune prior to playing StaffWars Live. Always play with good attacks and good tone. Game sounds may trigger the pitch detection so it is a good idea to turn your iPhone\iPad volume down while playing with the sound turn on.

You can now choose which lines and spaces are used in the game, or you can use the original slider method.
Just lines..... Just spaces...... mix and match..... no problem.

Chromatic has been adjusted and improved upon. There are now 3 chromatic choices:
- Chromatic (All Chromatics b's & #'s)
- Chromatic Flats Only

If using Custom Note Range and using chromatic scale, the associated chromatic will appear for whichever note you select.
**Cb\B#\Fb\E# have been removed from chromatics. Let me know if you would rather have this as an option.
