Note Rush: Learn Music Sight Reading + Piano Notes

By Thomas Grayston

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


A fun game for practising note reading on the music staff to help you learn piano, keyboard, flute, saxophone, violin, or any other instrument! Note Rush shows you a random note then uses the microphone to listen as you play through them like you would with note reading flashcards, only these flashcards check that you're playing the right note before moving on!

Play with a bunch of fun themes and race to earn stars and beat your best time! Note Rush is great for teaching keyboard geography by making sure each note is played in the correct octave. A music theory must-have for learning sight reading at all levels of music education.

"Note Rush has quickly become my favorite app for piano teaching." - Joy Morin,

"Note Rush is a motivating app that engages students to improve quickly with their note reading skills. It is definitely one of my top favorites and will be used often!" - Jennifer Foxx,

"Note Rush is a great way to review notes for the One Minute Club." - Susan Paradis,

Listens to Your Instrument
Note Rush helps students learn a strong association between notes on the page and keys on your instrument by using your device's microphone to detect when you play each note. Works with pianos, keyboards, flutes, violins, you name it! (See Q&A below for more about supported instruments.)

Note Rush goes as fast or as slow as the student with no time limits, so is suitable for complete beginners right through to being a fun challenge for professionals!

Grand Staff Context
The whole grand staff is always visible, showing each note in full context and helping students learn how notes are spaced out across the two staves.

Octave-Sensitive Keyboard Geography
It's a "B", but which "B"?? Note Rush teaches keyboard geography by making sure you're getting the note in the right octave every time.

Great for Home Practise
Students will rush to their instrument at home every day with NoteRush, chasing that elusive high score! Unlike flashcards, children can drill note identification at home with no music-reading parent required to check if they're getting them correct - Note Rush checks for you! Play every day and you'll soon be able to name and identify notes instantly!

Note Rush has five built-in Levels, from Middle C-Position right through to the full grand staff with 2 ledger lines above and below. Plus select between Treble Clef, Bass Clef or both! Full customisation of specific note selections is coming soon.

Replace Your Flash Cards
Use Note Rush instead of printed flash cards! Note Rush was designed to replace the cards used in One Minute Club - a challenge you can run in your studio where students have to complete a given level in under a minute. Give it a try!

Note Rush is made by Thomas Grayston, a software developer, pianist, and husband to a piano teacher.

Customer Reviews

Great app for learning notes!

I really like this app and have started using it with all my piano students at their lessons. They love trying to beat each other's time.
I like that the app requires them to play the correct key on the piano/correct octave rather than just choose the right note name. All the different themes available in the app make it fun for kids too. Can we have more to choose from in the future? 😁

Great app for piano players

This app is great for learning how to site read. It displays a note and then listens to see if you played the right note, only moving on after you get it right. You can also start with a smaller set of the clef if you are just starting out. Well worth it. Download this app. You'll be great at reading piano music in no time.

My students love this!

I teach beginner to intermediate level piano lessons, and this app is our weekly warm-up. My students ask for it! And I notice significant improvement in their recognition speed in their repertoire. I would love to see accidentals added at some point. Maybe through a feature I could toggle on and off?
