Produced by Wessar International Ltd., SightRead4Guitar is the brainchild of Christopher Wiltshire, whose widespread experience in music education added to his work as an instrumental teacher, accompanist and repetiteur meant that efficient sight reading necessarily became a cornerstone of his career.
Spending four successful years at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Christopher was twice winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Composers Award. He gained a B.Mus. at Durham University which was followed by a Masters Degree in Composition (Sheffield) and a Doctorate at London University. The RAM awarded him an Honorary Diploma for “Services to Music”.

Missed a trick
Surely the idea is to make the student read ahead which this app could do instead of which it makes the bar disappear after it has been played as opposed to before. Also the in app purchases are very expensive. I tried to contact the developer but got no response. Saying all that it is the only app like it for guitar.
