  • Finally my son wants to learn note names! Nov 15, 2019

    By ERSeligma
    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?

    Love it! Ive been stuck knowing only two notes at first glance for years and never could be bothered pitting the effort into learning more. This has changed that in a matter of weeks. Highly effective and fun! The only fault is that when i hit the back button, instead of taking me back to the main menu, it exits the app. Not a huge problem but annoying if you want to switch clefs.

  • Indispensable for experienced musicians who never learned to read Sep 15, 2020

    By John Gumas
    I downloaded this after a teacher at a conservatory recommended it to our class piano class and I have it to thank for jumpstarting my sight reading ability. It’s not a replacement for reading and playing actual music, but made it so I could practice anywhere at the drop of a hat, and really helped get me up to speed. If I could make one suggestion to the developers, include playback of the actual pitches as you input your answers, that will help students develop their relative pitch, and will make it all around a more musical experience.

  • Wonderful teaching tool! May 15, 2019

    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!

    So far an amazing tool! Thank you! To make it five stars in my opinion, would be to add an option to here each note (preferably from a piano) when played correctly. That way you would be practicing your ear as well! Would love to see that one day!

    I have a sansung S9 + and the app does not open on my phone. after downloading and paying the app opens and closes, after a few minutes my phone sent a notification saying that the app is consuming a lot of battery.

    There is a different version of this that works with the mic to detect your playing. this version does NOT have that capability and does the same function as other free note reading apps.

    I don't get it. The iPhone version allows people to play on their instruments directly into the app. That's what I bought this for. Why can't you do it on the android version? This is useless to me.

    The app opens and then closes again. I then get a pop up that says the app has stopped.

  • A great app, great support Apr 16, 2021

    By Amazonchic
    I just purchased this last week. My students love it! I’ve used other note reading apps too, but this has rave reviews PLUS my students who use it in band and orchestra at school have mentioned how much they love beating top scores. Craig also gives prompt and helpful support as the developer. I’m definitely recommending to other teachers.

    It is actually a really fun game. I bought it for distance learning and it is definitely worth it. You can change the range of the notes to your skill and every time you level up mid game it adds something to the music and speeds up.

  • Great App! Dec 16, 2017

    By JimDynamite
    Love this app! Use it all the time with my students. They enjoy competing against each other for the high score. The developer is great as well and is very responsive to feedback.

  • Practicing alto clef Feb 6, 2019

    By EyeDoc319
    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.

    New Problem Opening App. This was a great App on my Galaxy S10 however on my new S20 it opens the main Staff Wars page and then immediately closes again.
  • Not enough ledger lines Oct 2, 2019

    By MikeHylandMusic
    I use this with my suzuki guitar students but we need ledger lines down to a low E under the treble clef staff. It’s a bummer not to have the full low range to train with. Please help!
