Music Invaders is a sheet music trainer that helps you learn how to read sheet music. Musicians and students can brush up on their reading abilities, and learn to read music.
In Music Invaders, you have ten bases to protect — take care of them by playing the right notes as they come flying across the staff. Unlike other note trainers, a hovering alien will actually zap your bases if you don't play the right note. Play harder (on a MIDI device), and the notes shoot faster.
Set your iPad on a music stand and learn to play. Set the complexity of play — Single notes, Thirds, and Triads. Beginners can limit the range of notes to the Treble or Bass clef.
Tap the treble or bass clef to change keys. Blue lights indicate valid notes within a scale. With Auto-Rollover enabled, as you progress, the scale will advance through the circle of fifths every 10k. A small graph lets you track your progress as you work your way through every scale.
For the best experience, we recommend using Music Invaders with a MIDI keyboard. Notes played via MIDI are velocity sensitive and fire faster as you play harder.
Note: Continued use of MIDI running in the background can reduce battery life.
