Learning to hear written music in your head should be no harder than learning to hear written words in your head. In other words, it's not easy, but not as impossible as some people think.
The key to learning to sight read music on any instrument is knowing if the note you've played sounds sensible. Much like when reading a sentence out loud and finding yourself saying something that makes good sense.
By gradually building up your 'note' vocabulary you are able to 'hear' written music. This program starts off in the singing range of children so that they are able to use their first and best intrument 'their voice' while using their all important 'ears' to make sure they're reading correctly.
Each child learns differently so there are many variations that can be chosen to help them learn.
* Listening to notes Sung
The App displays a set of notes on a stave.
Buy pressing the 'play' button children are able to hear the notes sung first by an adult then a child.
Without being prompted children will sing along with the child.
If Solfa note heads are chosen they will also attempt to 'feel' the note by forming the correct hand shape.
Press "Next", and a new set of notes are displayed, and will be sung.
* See the Lines
Each different line in music corresponds to a different sound. Children are quickly able to grasp this principle buy seeing the 'line' light up that corresponds to the note on the keyboard.
There is a choice of whether the lines are Colour or Black&White depending on what suits the child.
* Steps to indicate note gaps
To help children recognize the distance between notes the 'steps' option can be chosen.
Steps help to show at a glance how big a gap there is.
