Sight Reading Factory makes practicing the important skill of sight reading quick, easy, effective and fun! This app composes music instantly and on-demand, providing musicians with a virtually unlimited supply of sight reading material. There are multiple levels of difficulty and the exercises can even be customized exactly to the needs of the musician. Sight Reading Factory is very versatile and can be used by musicians of all ages and abilities including music educators, music students, casual musicians and even professional musicians. Sight reading exercises can be generated for piano, guitar, voice, woodwinds, brass, strings, percussion and even full ensembles.
Teachers and students can also use the built-in classroom management and assignments feature for assessment. Teachers can organize students into classes/groups and create assignments for them. Students complete assignments by generating a sight reading exercise and recording themselves performing the exercise. The assignment can then be submitted back to the teacher to grade and leave feedback.
What's New in Version 1.6.2
Performance enhancements, improvements and bug fixes.
Teaching myself to read properly and this has been great for me. Although I don't like having to be tied to an internet access point to use this, I completely understand considering the vast amounts of randomly generated material. The subscription also motivates me to use the app more instead of wasting the money too haha!
Something They Tried To Hide
Something that nowhere in the description or in any of the info of the app (if no they hid it somewhere) did they say that to use the app you must have a 40 dollar yearly subscription, they makes the app usable for people who are trying to save money or want to use it once. The worst part is it looks completely free, no in app purchases, because you must have separate membership to Site Reading Factory for 40 dollars.
Good tool, needs note size capabilities
Great tool overall. Worth the subscription cost for me. Just would like to see an option added that allows the note sizes to be adjusted or zoomed, they're a little small as is. Would be a big help, thanks!
