Play It! is a game that helps you learn the notes on the keyboard: A, B, C, D, E, F, G and, when you're ready, the same notes sharped (#) and flatted (b), too. This is an important step in learning to read music, whether your goal is learning to read traditional notation or you only want to improve your ability to read piano tab. Press "Start", see the note, and play it - your score is based on how quickly you react and how many notes per game you select. There are different options for background music, or you can choose none at all. Built in help shows you what the notes are if you've forgotten. Play It! always provides a positive and upbeat atmosphere for learning and makes learning the notes fun!
What's New in Version 1.2
Because the transition from learning just the letter names of the notes to learning sharps and flats is a steep one, Play It! now offers options for practicing just sharps or just flats (along with plain letter names) as well as the previous options of using only the letters or letters plus sharps and flats. In addition, when you select your music you will hear a sound clip of the music you have selected.
Fun, simple and effective!
Fun, simple and effective! My 5-1/2 yo loves it, and it's an effective part of her practice between lessons. Her teacher introduced it to us. He uses it during the lesson as teaching tool.
