NoteNames+ tackles one of the most serious roadblocks for young musicians: The ability to instantly recognize the names of notes. Instantaneous note recognition allows students to process other important information, such as dynamics, articulation, phrasing, fingerings, and so on. NoteNames+ was first developed nearly 20 years ago for the Macintosh, and now it lives on via iOS.

Gone are the days of writing the names of notes above the music! Use NoteNames+ as a regular part of your curriculum.

Features include:

*Training for treble, bass AND alto clefs!
*Enharmonic training
*Major and minor key signature recognition
*Scale spelling (major)
*Key signature building (major and minor)
*Google Docs implementation (free)

Teachers can create their own unique school code in order to receive student scores and to set their own preference requirements *on a per-class basis* which is extremely powerful. Contact us to do this (it's free).

NoteNames+ rewards speed *and* accuracy. Students will remain engaged rather than zoning out in a self-paced tutorial format.

Great, but

This app is great, but here is one thing they couldn't get right: The B note (on the treble clef is supposed to be a down stem

Developer Response ,

The third line of any clef has the option of being up stem, or down stem.

Perfect teaching tool

My Band teacher implemented this, and rhythm tapper app into our curriculum and they enormously improve sight reading and music literacy. Highly recommend these apps to any music student, or teacher.

Teaching notes the right way

This is a wonderful app that helps reinforce note names the correct way: by sight, not by some strange pneumonic device (Great Big Donkeys Fix Automobiles? Huh???) This has worked well for my band students with zero years’ experience as well as those with 5 years’ experience. It also works great for my 3rd grade son, taking piano lessons.

Google Drive integration is not required, but makes the app much more customizable and powerful. I recommend.

This is one of the few music apps out there that is designed by a music educator, and you can tell. It’s a great app.
