BY FAR the best app for learning to sight read
I've acquired more sight reading ability, and done so faster, with this app than with any other I've tried (and I've tried a lot). I use it with my Yamaha MIDI keyboard. I can set the range of notes I want to learn in the treble clef and/or in the bass clef. I began by selecting ABCDE in the treble clef with the middle finger on C. Then I did the same range and hand position in the bass clef. After becoming proficient at that, I broadened the range of notes to GABCDEF so that I only had to reach up or down one note from those home hand positions. This app made it SO easy to select the range of notes I needed to learn. If you have a MIDI capable keyboard call you music store, get the MIDI to USB cable you need and the USB adapter for your iPad and you're good to go. Everybody should learn piano this way.

Disappointed student?
This app is confusing. The "lessons" contain only random notes. It makes no musical sense, and the interface is also confusing, meaning that when you are to change hands, it is very difficult to know when you've gone from treble to bass. There ought to be a possible upgrade for actual music and a "double decker" keyboard layout, you know, left hand on top and right hand on the bottom. So far, not worth the money or time.

Excellent
I got my wife an iRig Keys keyboard for Christmas, and she really wanted something to use with it to learn to sight read. I tried a number of other apps before finding this one, and it's by far the best. Works perfectly with the keyboard too.

Nice idea but buggy
Using this to practice chords with multiple sharps never work properly. After hitting one or two chords correctly it acts very funky.

Melhor Piano App para Aperfeicoamento
Tenho este como o melhor aplicativo para aperfeicoamento de leitura de partituras, que utilizo sempre como um bom livro de cabeceira antes de dormir e nas horas vagas, que por serem raras tornam a eficiência e simplicidade de um bom software um requisito. Assim somado a prática diária com um piano real acredito compor uma excelente estrategia para a iniciação. Seria uma boa evolução o software receber funcionalidade de permitir a seleçao de notas de outras durações. O único ponto que vejo como negativo é tenho a sensaçã que o algoritmo de aleatoridade parece não ser muito eficiente pois tenho sempre a percepção de repetição, motivo pelo qual atribuo apenas 4 estrelas!

Very Helpful, and fun, too!
I'm a fifty-something newbie to reading music, and this app is the best of the 4 or 5 I've tried. With all of the different settings, you can start at the absolute beginning--but then, as you progress, you'll be able to tweak various settings and keep challenging yourself. WELL worth the money!
