Tech Tuesday: SightReadMinor

Apps, Reviews, Tech Tuesdays

A month and a half ago I reviewed an app called SightReadPlus. In my review I mentioned a couple apps in the works, including one called SightReadMinor. Well the good news, SightReadMinor is now available!

Keeping with the same format as SightReadPlus, SightReadMinor will listen and evaluate your playing.

In SightReadMinor, you will find 2,880 short sight-reading exercises in ALL minor keys for left and and right hand. (separate)  Time signatures vary between 2/4, 3/4, 4/4 and 6/8 with rhythm values ranging from quarter, dotted quarter, half, dotted half, whole and eighth notes. The exercises are in sequenced order so students will advance forward. Also included are pentascales for students to practice.

One of my favorite features with both of these apps is the ability to keep track of individual progress. If you missed the SightReadPlus review be sure to go back and read it as SightReadMinor is very similar but now with minor exercises. Both apps are for the iPad and are highly recommended.

    Sounds interesting. Which of the 2 Apps do you think you will use more often?

  2. Beth T

    Thanks for a chance to win – it sounds like a great app!

  3. Angelica

    Awesome app!! Would love to try. Is it for iPad only?

      It is for the iPad only. If you don’t have an iPad yet but think you will eventually then you can still download it on you iTunes account and sync it to your iPad later. 😉

  4. Kathy Gault

    I was intrigued by your review of the major version of this app, and now along comes the minor version. I am definitely thinking of trying one or both of these. Would love to win a free copy!

    Sight Reading is probably one of the most important skills our young pianists can develop. I’m always amazed/intrigued/amused when “wonderful musicians” (usually singers) show up to an event, but have forgotten to bring an accompanist. My sight reading ability always saves their performance. I want my students to have that same gift, and have the same thrill!

  15. Crystal Tyler Cassels

    I just purchased an IPad 2 weeks ago (finally trying to enter the new technology!), so I would love to win this app ! Thanks for your reviews, Wendy!

  16. Karen Cox

    Would love to have this app!

  17. Lisa Shoemaker

    I’d love to win this! My plan is to emphasize sight reading more with my students this year, so this would be great.

  18. Lavinia Livingston

    I use SightReadPlus with every elementary and even intermediate student. Love it…and they like it too. Can’t wait to be a winner of SightReadMinor and add it to my iPad apps. A very, very valuable sight reading teaching tool.
