Trombone+ is an interactive note chart for trombone. Tap the music staff to see the note, its name, and position, PLUS hear its sound.
Use it in band class to look up a note. Or, tap out a melody on the staff just for fun.
Notes are for a tenor trombone in bass clef and range from E below the staff to high F above the staff. All flats and sharps are included.
Tap ♫ to follow animated songs including:
Hot Cross Buns
Mary's Little Lamb
Twinkle Little Star
Concert B-flat Scale and Arpeggio
This has been very helpful for my beginning 5th grader. Two suggestions, however: It is very easy to hit the wrong note as the spacing of the staff lines are quite close together. It would seem a simple fix to make it easier for those of us with fat fingers (although before using this app, I never considered my fingers to be particularly fat!).
Second: it would be nice if the note would play for a longer period of time-- perhaps so that a student could match their note with the actual note coming from the app.
Other than that, a good program for 99¢.
Really nice app IF THE SOUND WORKS
It's great that this app has a lot of features for just 99 cents, but the problem I have with it is that there is no sound when I tap on a note on my iPad 2. Only if this is fixed would I give a five star rating.
App needs to be able to add more sharps and flats along with higher and lower notes! Also doesn't play the songs!
