NoteCard will turn you into a fluent note-reader. Work with the program for even a few brief sessions and you will find your ability to recognize and name the musical notes increasing steadily and without strain. The ultimate goal is not just recognition but mastery: to know each note at sight without conscious effort or the risk of error just as you are able to recognize the letters of the alphabet now. We believe there are important payoffs to mastering this vital skill early in ones musical development. One of the biggest is getting rid of an annoying distraction: the need to laboriously decipher notation when you are trying at the same time both to cope with technical challenges and to express musical feelings. In addition a secure grasp of note-reading builds confidence encourages sight-reading and helps make the most of other investments in music such as lessons.The NoteCard software embodies both a Free Version and a Paid Version.
