Built on the success of the original 'StaffWars', StaffWars Live offers game play designed to aid students in instrumental practice. Choose your instrument, key signature, scale and note range, then play the notes that appear on the staff with your instrument to destroy them before they damage you clef. Notes get faster with every ten correct and you get three lives.
Press the "Settings" button to change your instrument, scale, key signature and adjustable note range. All notes are in the instruments' written pitch (i.e. Clarinet in C major would be concert Bb Major)
All your scores are saved when exiting the game, so you can track your improvement. Scales include Major, Major Blues, Minor Blues, Chromatic
Need to practice transposition? StaffWars Live has got you covered. All notes are in the instruments’ written pitch, so you can be a french horn player and select 'Trumpet' to practice transposing to Bb.
***NOTE*** - Make sure your instrument is in tune prior to playing StaffWars Live. Always play with good attacks and good tone. Game sounds may trigger the pitch detection so it is a good idea to turn your phones volume down while playing with the sound turn on.
What's New in Version 1.2
- New Pitch Detection Adjustment Slider - You now have the ability to adjust the pitch detection. A slider on the game screen will variably adjust the pitch detection up to a semitone (half-step) sharp or flat. Double tapping the slider will reset the pitch detection adjustment to none. This will be helpful to those whose embouchures are still developing or in the case where a piano is not perfectly in tune.
- Intro walkthrough now accessible through main menu.

Best app for learning notes on the staff - HANDS DOWN
If you are a musicteacher, please trust me and just buy this now. This latest take on this "typing tutor" style gamification is yielding almost magic results.
I've been teaching piano for over 15 years. The results I've had after two weeks with my students this semester is astounding. In two weeks I have seen multiple students go further than they went in a year in reading.. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to teach or learn to read music for the piano. Before Staff Wars LIVE, the original Staff Wars was my goto for teaching the notes on the staff. It had beaten out LineSpace which had way less cusomization and hadn't updated since 1.0 YEARS ago. By opening up the microphone, makign the text larger and simplifying all of the options while offering more control it went other level. These earlier apps revolutionized teaching note reading. StaffWars Live takes it to an entire other level.
Awesome, Fun and addictive
I started using this app with students the day after someone showed it to me! It's a lot of fun. They have major scales, blues in major and minor and chromatic. They need to add minor scales and tenor clef (it has treble, alto and bass clef)
