Sight-reading for Piano 1
By Patrick Q. Kelly
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Build your sight-reading skills by playing from a near endless supply of waltzes.
These collected measures were originally presented as a musical dice game attributed to Mozart. While the authenticity of it actually being created by Mozart is questionable, it's still fun and an easy way to strengthen your sight-reading skills.
Play both hands together, or play one while the app plays the other.
Hear it played first or check your accuracy after you sight-read it.
Create a waltz with a touch of a button. If you like the waltz the app composes, create a pdf of the music to share via email or print out to play later.
If you want to change a measure, just swipe up or down on the measure to pick a new one.
Some measures have many variations, while others are always nearly identical.
Even with the duplicate measures, there are approximately 380,000,000,000,000 combinations of waltzes.
What's New in Version 1.1
Redesigned music layout to fit the iPad Pro better. Improved count-off feature.
Works well, but limited
Does what it says, generates variations on a simple minuet. But it is really only variations in figuration; it is much the same little piece each time. This limits its value for sight-reading practice.
