Listens to Your Instrument
Note Rush helps students learn a strong association between notes on the page and keys on your instrument by using your device’s microphone to detect when you play each note. Works with pianos, keyboards, flutes, violins, you name it! (See Q&A below for more about supported instruments.)
Note Rush goes as fast or as slow as the student with no time limits, so is suitable for complete beginners right through to being a fun challenge for professionals!
Grand Staff Context
The whole grand staff is always visible, showing each note in full context and helping students learn how notes are spaced out across the two staves.
Octave-Sensitive Keyboard Geography
It’s a “B”, but which “B”?? Note Rush teaches keyboard geography by making sure you’re getting the note in the right octave every time.
