Sight Reading Factory makes practicing the important skill of sight reading quick, easy, effective and fun! This app composes music instantly and on-demand, providing musicians with a virtually unlimited supply of sight reading material. There are multiple levels of difficulty and the exercises can even be customized exactly to the needs of the musician. Sight Reading Factory is very versatile and can be used by musicians of all ages and abilities including music educators, music students, casual musicians and even professional musicians. Sight reading exercises can be generated for piano, guitar, voice, woodwinds, brass, strings, percussion and even full ensembles.
Teachers and students can also use the built-in classroom management and assignments feature for assessment. Teachers can organize students into classes/groups and create assignments for them. Students complete assignments by generating a sight reading exercise and recording themselves performing the exercise. The assignment can then be submitted back to the teacher to grade and leave feedback.

Ratings and Reviews
Can’t create account in app
Our chorus director recommended this app, so I’m sure it’s just what my son needs and that’s why I gave it three stars rather than 1. While this may be a great app, there’s no way to create an account in the app! For devices that have Safari disabled for the protection of our kids, setting up an account becomes rather inconvenient. It’s not a deal breaker, but most apps that need an account have a way to do that in app. It’s pretty odd that there’s not even a link to do that. I’ll be trying another app rather than trying to figure out where to go online to create an account.
Awesome companion app to the website!
This app is AWESOME! Just what I was looking for. Fully customizable for many instrument types, rhythms, intervals, etc. All custom settings can be saved for quick future use. Yes, you need to pay a yearly subscription fee from their website. But it’s totally worth the price! After setting up your melody parameters all it takes is a single tap to generate a whole new melody! You can do this over and over again. Just tap once and boom! A new melody. This is perfect for sight reading practice. And if you think about it, the yearly fee is a lot cheaper than constantly buying new music for practice.
Great but 1 thing..
I will say that this app is pretty amazing! It absolutely helps me out when it comes to reading music and If I could, I would have told my Jr. High teacher to use Sight Reading Factory.
However, there is one big thing that bugs me. On the website once you finish a recording in an assignment, you’re given the option to review your recording, that way you can be sure to get a perfect score. On the app there is no way to review your work to make sure you say the right notes, stay on beat, etc. For this reason I mostly gravitate towards the website rather than the app. If this issue could be fixed it would be a world of help!
