NoteWorks for Android and iOS
Thursday, July 13, 2017 by Mary O'Connor | iPad
There's a new app in the studio! It's called NoteWorks and it looks like it will be fun for the students. NoteWorks is an engaging, fun game, designed to teach note reading. Beginners use NoteWorks as a terrific alternative to flash cards. More advanced students use the full version to practice key signatures with up to seven sharps and flats in multiple clefs. Kids love the app because it's fun and addictive. Teachers and parents love how the game improves students' note recognition and sight reading skills. If you want this for home use, it's available for iPhone, iPad and Android. The cost for the full version for home use is a one time fee $4.99, directly in the app. More info at https://doremiworld.com/Games/NoteWorks I already have my students set up so we can use this during lessons, but let me know if you plan to use this at home and I'll give you the code to connect to the studio account. The objective of this game is to teach note recognition and improve sight reading skills. Game options include treble and bass clefs (with the grand staff option) as well as tenor and alto clefs.
