Are you a beginner musician, or thinking about playing great music again? Then Note Tutor is for you. Basic music theory is presented in a fun, flash-card game format, enabling you to memorize the basics you need to read music quickly and effectively, wherever you are.

Note Tutor starts from the beginning, and helps you build music note recognition through random repetition.

Learn basic note recognition in a fun, flash-card game format. Master the basics quickly and easily.
Applicable to all instruments and styles of music.
Start from the beginning, and advance to the next version of Note Tutor to build on your solid basic music theory skills.

To use Note Tutor, simply identify the note by pressing the correct A, B, C, D, E, F, or G button. If you are right, you get one point and advance to the next note! If you are wrong, you lose a point, but you get to try again.

The score shows how many notes you are recognizing correctly per minute. If you slow down, your score may go down, even if you do not make mistakes... so try to go as fast and as accurately as you can!

Note Tutor now allows you to choose whether you want to practice only the treble clef, only the bass clef, or both clefs at once.

We have also added an option that allows you to choose how Note Tutor displays the score: kids may prefer to see the points scored, while more serious students may prefer the "points per minute" display that helps you improve your speed and accuracy.

Both new features are accessed by pressing the "i" button to reveal the flipside control screen.

If you want to practice the Tenor Clef or the Alto clef, please consider purchasing the Tenor Tutor application!

Ratings and Reviews

Great app


Nothing fancy just a simple way to learn how to read notes and it worked great, like flash cards easy and clear!!! I have been learning how to play the piano for a month or two with a teacher but couldn't learn the notes well enough and it kept getting in my way of progress. Enter this FREE and great app, 3 days later of about 20min a day and I know them well, a week later and I was fluent 👍
If you are not sure of the notes at first you can press the note and it will tell you the answer rather than pressing mindlessly until you get it.
Thank you for this app and for making it free!

Do not download


I downloaded this app to help me refresh and get quicker with learning my notes. Unfortunately, this app is CRAP! It was telling me that I was wrong when it came to a G calling it a B. When clearly the 2nd line is a G hence the acronym (E-very G-ood B-oy D-oes F-ine) and for spaces (F-A-C-E) so for it to tell me the 2nd line is B when it's clearly G is absurd. So update your app and get the information correct. It's misleading and other musician will think that you are right when in actuality they are learning wrong.

Developer Response

Hi Prodigy! Thanks for your message, and sorry that we did not meet your expectations. We have never heard of this complaint from any of our 25,000 users before, and our own tests do not reveal this problem either. Was it possible that you were shown a base clef B? In base clef, the 2nd line from the bottom is indeed a B! Happy note learning.

A truly useful and fun app!!


Wow! I heard about this from my music teacher who recommends it highly. I am learning music with my children, and have found it invaluable in learning to read notes in an interactive yet simple manner. It is simple enough to practice in public with some time to kill and yet engaging enough to keep my 7-year-old entertained. Finally a game that actually teaches something!! I highly recommend it to parents whose kids are learning music, and for us more "mature" beginners it's a fun way to learn painlessly. Thank You! I would have paid more!
