Remember my review for the SightReadPlus app for iPad? Well, here is an update:
I’ve been using it here-and-there with students during lessons with great success. I love being about to choose the key and make the student have to really think about the various key signatures. As I mentioned in the previous review, I appreciate that the app keeps the student accountable to the beat so the student does not feel it is an option to stop playing if they make a mistake.
I’ve also recommended SightReadPlus to a few of my adult students, who love that fact that the app shows them how well they did — both with the pitches and the rhythm. It’s like having your teacher at home with you when you practice! I have really been impressed with the usefulness of SightReadPlus.
Good news — The developers behind SightReadPlus have just released a sequel: the SightReadMinor app. SightReadMinor works much the same way as SightReadPlus, but it contains 2880 short exercises in all minor keys for $4.99 (SightReadPlus contains 4800 short exercises in all major keys for $7.99).
More good news — The developers have also offered two promo codes of SightReadMinor for a giveaway! In order to enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on this post about how your Fall studio planning is going. :) A winner will be randomly chosen after Midnight EST on Thursday, August 15 and announced the next day.
