Note recognition – the skill of identifying a note that appears on the staff – is fundamental to reading music. Even at advanced levels, improving the speed and accuracy of your note recognition will make you a better sight reader.
Introducing our Note Recognition App
That’s why we’re releasing a free online tool to help musicians develop this skill. You can use it today by visiting this link:
How it works
- Go to sightreadingmastery.com/note-recognition/
- A random note will appear on the staff
- Press the button below the staff with the note name that matches
- If you got it right, a new note will appear. If not, don’t worry! You get another chance
The app is designed to work well on smartphones, tablets and full-size computers. So you can practice note recognition wherever it’s convenient for you.
♡ Free and Open source
This app is totally free to use. We’ve also open-sourced it, so if you’re a developer, check out the code on GitHub and do what you like with it!
There is no support yet for
bass clef (only treble) or ledger lines.
Update: Both treble clef and bass clef are now supported! Just press on the clef to switch between them.
