Hi there,

I'm wondering whether there's an iPad or iPhone app that allows me to check for correctly played notes while I'm playing. I would like to hook up my DP to my iPad via MIDI and the software should record the MIDI notes played and compare with the note sheet. After playing I would like to see the wrong notes I played.
I know, there would be limitations in timing etc. but a basic comparison to identify the worst errors would be nice.
Is there anything like that?

Thanks in advance.

Hey ClavBoy, welcome to the forum! Is there a reason why you would want such an application, instead of using your ears to listen for wrong notes or reading the score more carefully? It seems to me that the latter is much more beneficial and a better use of your time.

Hm, sometimes I'm not sure that I would hear the subtle errors. I'm practising Bachs Prelude C major and there are parts that sound very similar and I'm not sure to hear errors I make. Would be a nice thing to have software support.
Just an idea.

Some Scott Joplin pieces i.e. Bethena. Still years to go for that...

Listening to a recording could be helpful. Also, work through the piece very slowly to make sure you are getting all the notes right. Your ears are better than you think, but they do need practice!

Tonara App on iPad will fit into your needs. It listens, move along whilst you play and turn the page automatically. But they only have a limited no. of sheet musics at the moment.

I've tried Tonara but all it does is move along the sheet while playing. It cannot detect single wrong notes but just ignores them and moves along. It's too forgiving.
Maybe that's because it uses the audio via microphone and not the MIDI-Interface.

I have to agree with Lain, your time will be better spent in training your ears. For a piece with sections that seem similar, you might consider isolating that line of music, so that you can hear what's different, then put it back together and focus on hearing which part is different. Playing hands separately is good for this, as is taking just the melody notes in one hand, playing those but not the other notes in that hand, or playing only non-melody notes, etc.

You should try Synthesia, a free program that allows you to watch notes being played by the computer. Here's a link: http://synthesiagame.com/

Just download the program and midi files for the songs you're playing and then compare your memory to the notes played by Synthesia. If you have a laptop, you can put it on top of your piano and avoid sheet music altogether. In my view, Synthesia -- and similar programs -- is far more effective than sheet music, and if I were just starting out, I not sure whether I'd bother to learn to read conventional scores.

Why not invest in a good teacher? grin Synthesia seems to be geared more for fun than any serious music study...
