• All woodwinds have trill fingerings for minor 2nd and major 2nd intervals.
• Flutes and Saxophones have additional fingerings for minor 3rd and major 3rd trills.
• Alto and Tenor Sax include altissimo fingerings up to written F, two octaves above the top line F of the treble clef.
• All Woodwinds include visual guides to the key names and locations on the instrument to understand the fingering charts better.

How to Use:
Pick a written note (touch the staff) and have the fingering displayed and concert pitch played. Touch a button and reveal the note on the piano.
Play a concert pitch on the piano, and have that pitch's fingering displayed. Touch a button and reveal the transposed note written on the staff.

• If there are alternate fingerings available for a note or trill, a button will allow you to navigate through them.
• Use the 'Play Note' or 'Play Trill' button to repeatedly hear what's being displayed.
• Use the mute button to access the fingerings without hearing the pitches.

Selecting a Pitch:
Using the Staff (transposed for the current instrument): Simply touch and drag up and down on the staff to select the note, slide right for sharp, left for flat, or slide up and down right or left of the note for constant sharps and flats.
Using the Piano (concert pitch): Swipe to move the keyboard, tap to play notes, touch & hold then slide to glissando. When you glissando up the keyboard, notes will be notated with sharps, when you glissando down, notes will be notated with flats. When you tap specific notes they will be notated in the most common accidental for that note. ie: Eb rather than D#, F# rather than Gb.
Use the up and down arrows to move chromatically up and down without touching the music staff or piano keyboard.

Fantastic resource!

This has been on my iPod, iPhone, and iPad for many years now and has always been helpful when I have a brain fart on my woodwind fingerings for alternates and trills. Its also a quick way to give a clear visual to students so that I don’t have to say numbers and spin an instrument around wildly to show which fingers are used. This is particularly helpful for beginning clarinetists with too many pinky keys to handle.

Some helpful ideas:
1. fix the piccolo finger chart (it is VERY atypical for a piccolo to have a low D-flat or C).
2. Incorporate some extended range fingers (clarinet is already screaming high, but some standard rep has flutes going up to D and higher and almost all modern saxophone repertoire will have a G6 at least)
3. Add a chart for recorders! Both Baroque and German. (This is actually a recent need for me and what is leading to me writing a review today). Many musicals ask woodwind doublers to include recorder in their arsenal, so this would be very helpful to that group.

Make your own fingering option

I love this app. Always use it when I’m need of a reference. But there should an option to create your own fingerings and write notes for that fingering. I am a professional who sometimes uses alternate fingerings to change tone or make passages smoother. This feature would make leagues easier to keep up with my ever growing library of fingerings.

Great app. Accurate. I teach instrumental music in Jr. High and High School. I use it regularly every year. Shows alternate fingerings and trills. When students see the app, they want to download it for themselves as well.
