One of the two very best apps you can get
I came to this from PianoNotes Pro, and I highly recommend both together. Both work superbly with my MIDI keyboard (requires $30 Lightning/USB camera adapter from Apple); my piano sight reading has gone from agonizingly slow to fluent in really just a few months, 20 minutes/day. Both come with free iPhone versions. Differences: NT runs no timer, but only gives you one shot at hitting the right note(s); PNP does the opposite. NT is more structured and explanatory — it feels like more of a course; PNP keeps your high score like a video game, which I find wonderfully addictive (and has a guest setting too). NT teaches you the more complex chords when you're ready; PNP offers more personalization and now tests you on your scales. NT offers multiple-choice buttons too, for non-pianists; on the other hand PNP lets you slap the name of the notes on the onscreen keyboard if you choose. Between them these two apps have more than justified the price of my iPad and given me a full and effective education in piano-playing and sight reading. All my thanks to the creators.
This app is excellent for cultivating musical literacy. I used to play various instruments, but it's been a while and I'm pretty rusty. I've been using this app to regain my abilities with the convenience of simply pulling out my phone and practicing for several minutes a day. Of course, I intend to actually start playing again eventually, but this app is great for mastering the cognitive aspect of music so that I'll be able to focus on the technical aspect when that time comes.
USE THIS IT WORKS!!!
Simple, if you want to learn to read music, in any key, use this app and you will be successful. The only other thing I have to say is: *If you are a complete beginner, like I was when starting to use this app, make sure to learn how to recognize key signatures/notes from elsewhere before using this app, because it doesnt tell you the acronyms/tricks to get that down.*
