How to Use:
Pick a written note (touch the staff) and have the fingering displayed and concert pitch played on the piano.
Play a concert pitch on the piano, and have that pitch's fingering displayed and the transposed note written on the staff.

• If there are alternate fingerings available for a note or trill, a button will allow you to navigate through them.
• Use the 'Play Note' or 'Play Trill' button to repeatedly hear what's being displayed.
• Use the mute button to access the fingerings without hearing the pitches.

Selecting a Pitch:
Using the Staff (transposed for the current instrument): Simply touch and drag up and down on the staff to select the note, slide right for sharp, left for flat, or slide up and down right or left of the note for constant sharps and flats.
Using the Piano (concert pitch): Drag from the ends to move the keyboard, tap to play notes. When you glissando up the keyboard, notes will be notated with sharps, when you glissando down, notes will be notated with flats. When you tap specific notes they will be notated in the most common accidental for that note. ie: Eb rather than D#, F# rather than Gb.

Needs update

This was my favorite app to use in the classroom, but it won't even open anymore, please update!

Developer Response ,

I’m sorry you’re having an issue opening the app, but I’m unable to see anything with the app that would cause it. There may have been something in the update process, so reinstalling it may solve the issue.

Fingering for iPad

Stellar application! I'm using it for bassoon as an adult. I see that it has great value for learning the fingerings on many instruments - especially as a teaching tool for my daughter as she picks up saxaphone as her second instrument.

To make it even more valuable for end users, I would suggest that you add a scale practice mode with the ability to vary tempos. For example, fingerings for each note on any instrument would be shown both in fingering and in musical notation for a student to practice the shifts from note to note on the instrument they are playing. Perhaps you might add a randomizer function within the scale would be particularly valuable as a practice tool for practicing fingering changes - perhaps even adding chord changes to make it purposeful as an improvising tool tool.

Keep up the good work!
