Finally my son wants to learn note names!

Gone are the groans when I ask my 6yo to practice note names! He loves this game and is improving his note recognition.

Works great on all my iOS devices, except I can’t get it to close on my iPhone X. It doesn’t respond to swiping up from anywhere on the screen. I end up having to reboot the phone. Is there something I’m missing or is this something that needs to be fixed in the next version?

Wonderful teaching tool!

I love this game! I have all my students buy it to help with their note reading. I especially love that tenor clef was recently added.

The only thing it’s missing now is a setting to combine some or all of the clefs in one game to practice switching between them in real time (like for advanced cellists who have to read bass, tenor and treble clef fluidly; or violists who frequently switch between alto and treble clef). Maybe make this upgrade at some point in the future? I would even pay a higher price for a “Pro” version that has this feature.

In any case, thanks to the developers for the awesome app!

Don't tell anyone... but what you are describing is already in the game, you just need to unlock it....... Maybe by mastering all the clefs? Thanks for the kind words

Practicing alto clef

Fun and helpful for a violinist who dabbles with occasional viola parts. I wish notes on ledger lines came while it is still slow so I could get used to what they look like.

You can change the 'Range' by click on the range icon. There is a custom range option where you could choose only ledger lines If you like for the whole game
