THE SEE MUSIC COMPOSER
With the Composer you can create three different kinds of exercises:
Note Trainer • Rhythmic Trainer • Complete-Melody Trainer
- The Note Trainer is ideal for beginners or to practice uncomfortable ranges in your instrument. It does not involved rhythms so you can just concentrate in notes. See Music listens to your playing one note at a time, but shows you all the set at once so you can practice reading ahead.
It creates 8-note, 16-note, 32-note, and 64-note challenges.
- In the Rhythmic Trainer mode composes rhythmic exercises and you tap the rhythms on your device. See Music listens to your playing and gives you an instant visualization and then a complete report at the end of the exercise.
- The Complete-Melody Trainer composes entire melodies for you to sight-read. See Music listens to your playing and then gives you a report with rhythm and pitch accuracy for every note in the piece so you know if you were flat or sharp, late or early, or you missed the note all together. The final report also includes an overall score and other stats.
Simply set the level of the pieces by combining different musical elements:
Range, Skip-Steps, Keys, Time Signature, Rhythms, Speed and Length of the piece
See music will write pieces of up to 8 measures long for you to practice. If you choose a 1 measure long piece, SEE MUSIC composes a one measure exercise but repeats it 4 times so you can improve your performance faster with just one exercise.
See Music will determine the level of your settings and assign a specific composer:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Master or Wizard.
Reports appear at the end of each performance. You may share the results with your teacher or friends via MESSAGE, EMAIL, or post the results on FACEBOOK, TWITTER, etc.
You also have access to the reports by DAY, WEEK and MONTH, also your BEST and LAST performances.
We have included several judging styles. You can choose how tough or relaxed you want the judge to evaluate your performance, or create your own style.
A tutorial video is available within the app.
SEE MUSIC also includes a Metronome and Tuner. With See Music you'll have all the necessary tools to take your playing to the next level.

Does amazing things, but glitchy
I’ve not seen another app that fills this need—generates endless exercises but also grades performance on a number of factors (pitch/rhythm)!
However, it is rough around the edges and the app’s performance has degraded over the past month—perhaps due to OS changes?: 1) The awards page does not save the averages for the day anymore (never did save for the week) 2) The metronome sound now only plays the first beat and some times start of 5th measure. 3) Sometimes metronome stops altogether and/ or the app crashes.
I would so love for this to work as intended. I have tried re-installing the app and contacting developer via email, but awaiting response. I have an iPhone 8 with no other programs running.
Sometimes the Correct % seems more reliable than others. (Is it most reliable at the default tempo? Just tell me if that is a known issue, so I’m not trying to figure out whether I am actually getting worse at slower tempos?)
The progression is not transparent (does it give harder/easier exercises based on your performance?—if yes, what actions start you back at the beginning? Reopening? Changing a design parameter? Tempo? Not discussed in video tutorial.)
The navigation is needlessly clumsy on iPhone. (Move the “conductor” away from mic/start icon or put it under Settings for those that want it. I keep accidentally turning it on and it’s annoying. Eyes need to be looking ahead of current note anyway. Always have icon for something in same place — e.g. designer at bottom left, create excecise bottom right etc.)
As other reviewers say, I really would like to be able to pick key(s), similar to setting a user-defined range. See Tenuto for picking keys.
The See Music score/graphic means what? Explain.
Half a review
I just started out with this and my first discovery is that there are things I need but I can’t control, like limiting key signatures to a certain range.
I’m primarily interested in learning to sight read Irish music for a beginners session. That means I need only one, two or three sharps in my key signature. It also means that triplets are played as two 16ths and an 8th and not as uniform duration notes.
I really don’t need and won’t use any music that doesn’t have one, two or three sharps. (I don’t say keys since Irish music is often modal)
The worst is; I’m not actually on a viola but playing a five string violin. I read my music on treble and bass clef but it’s presented here on alto clef. I can live with that but my own scores are written with treble and bass with a one ledger line gap so C is in the space between treble and bass. I’d love to be able to have my music span both clefs with the ability to space the clefs as needed.
Yes, the last is a bit extreme but perfect for five strings.
Yeah, half a review. Limiting key signature choices is primary here. Between whistles, flutes that are really fifes, fiddles, button accordions and concertinas the common ground is one to three sharps and only soloists go beyond that.
I’m already seeing small improvements!
I have been doing my best to get better at sight reading on the guitar (which is the most difficult instrument to sight read music) and I have found this app to be useful in my practice sessions.
If there’s a few things that I would like to see on this app is to have an additional feature for guitarists to read Bass Clef. Going through the list of instruments that I could choose to sight read on, I have noticed that the Cello has two clef choices. So why can’t the guitar? I would think this would benefit well for any performances that would require me to read in Bass Clef instead of Treble.
Another thing I struggle with sometimes are the key signatures, instead of grouping them, how about an option that’s similar to the isolate button on notes and be able to practice certain key signatures instead of randomizing?
Those are just a few bits of criticism, but overall I still enjoy using this app, and I’ll continue to use it every day.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
