The free sight singing app I’ve been looking for

So far, this app rocks. I was out of practice for a long time on my sight singing, but this app is helping me get that skill back! It’s intuitive and the exercises are good. They’re not repetitive either so you don’t have to worry about memorizing the exercises if you use it a lot.

I like that it records you and plays you back instantly, with the piano notes and your pitch on a line graph. Really keeps you honest. Right now I don’t have a voice teacher to give me feedback, so it’s essential that I be able to hear myself.

This app can be useful for any level. I could see it helping a beginner who wants to learn to read music, an intermediate musician tuning their ear, or even an advanced musician who requires dynamic sight reading drills. It helps to be familiar with key signatures and their relative minors, or have a cheat sheet handy.

Sight reading help

Definitely helps with sight reading. I learned music by ear in the formative years of my life using the Yamaha method for piano. I did not start sight reading until I started violin at the age of 12, but I didn’t sight read with the notes in mind, it was more so related to where I put my fingers when in first position. I’ve never been great with singing, but practicing singing the note names as I sight read is very helpful and I’m sure it will translate to playing and sight reading music for other instruments.
