If you are a Music teacher or student you almost certainly know that sight-reading is an essential skill which is usually lacking in almost every student’s arsenal.
Becoming a good sight-reader requires many hours of practice (daily practice), consistency, patience and of course, plenty of sight-reading material at a level that is challenging enough for the student but not impossible.
If you are a band teacher or orchestra/choir teacher you also have the challenge of finding good sight-reading material for any instrument and voice
And at last, evaluating a student’s performance as a sight-reading is crucial if one wants the student to make progress. Feedback is essential.
“See Music” by mDecks Music is an amazing tool that tackle all this problems, using technology that was not available just a couple of years ago.
“See Music” composes unlimited amounts melodic or rhythmic pieces of music at your level and keep track of your progress to help you improve your reading skills in no time. It includes all instruments and voices, which makes it the ideal practice tool for band, choir and orchestra students alike.
“See Music” will challenge your reading skills and give you feedback on your performance in real time. “See Music” will listen to you and give you a complete performance report with rhythmic and pitch accuracy, missed notes and all the relevant information you’ll need to improve your playing.
With the Composer you can create three different kinds of exercises:
Note Trainer • Rhythmic Trainer • Complete-Melody Trainer
– The Note Trainer is ideal for beginners or to practice uncomfortable ranges in your instrument. It does not involved rhythms so you can just concentrate in notes. See Music listens to your playing one note at a time, but shows you all the set at once so you can practice reading ahead.
It creates 8-note, 16-note, 32-note, and 64-note challenges.
– In the Rhythmic Trainer mode composes rhythmic exercises and you tap the rhythms on your device. See Music listens to your playing and gives you an instant visualization and then a complete report at the end of the exercise.
– The Complete-Melody Trainer composes entire melodies for you to sight-read. See Music listens to your playing and then gives you a report with rhythm and pitch accuracy for every note in the piece so you know if you were flat or sharp, late or early, or you missed the note all together. The final report also includes an overall score and other stats.
