SightReadPlusTM for iPad-- Use with Acoustic Piano: a modern solution to an age-old problem

“Ten minutes a day on sight-reading.”   Sight-reading WHAT?

When one of my students, an MIT physicist, approached me with the idea of developing educational apps that could be used with real instruments, my first hope was to find a way to solve this issue of early level sight reading.
  
mTA’s SightReadPlusTM listens to a student play a real piano or keyboard, evaluates note and timing accuracy, and offers help where needed.  Students earn gold stars and points for everything they practice!  
SightReadPlusTM is carefully sequenced, advancing from stepwise movement and basic timing patterns to more advanced intervallic reading and dotted note values.

Beginning Level:  Major Five Finger Patterns
  • Offers 4800 four-bar exercises in all major keys  
  • Note and rest values:  eighth, quarter, dotted quarter, half, dotted half and whole
  • Meters: 4/4, 3/4, 2/4 and 6/8
  • Clap along with Kodaly rhythm syllables for timing practice

Available in the Apple App Store.  Or visit www.mymusicta.com.
