Candifer - Really great app!
My young flute students love this app! If you’re looking for simple note recognition flash cards, this is not the app for you. However, this is a great next step from note recognition to actually playing the correct note on your instrument. For beginner flute players getting the correct combinations of fingers is challenging. Making it into a game makes it fun.
I would give 5 stars if this had a level for treble clef that didn’t go below middle C but went into higher upper ledger lines (think F6-B6) to make this a more useful tool for my specific instrument. (Reading upper treble ledger lines is a really important skill for flautists to learn.) Still great as is, but not as useful for my 3rd year beginner-intermediate students.
57633$ - The perfect app to learn piano notes!
I wanted a simple app that could help me learn and memorize treble and bass clef notes on my piano. This app did exactly that!! Warning! This timed game style format is addictive as you try to beat your time. While the audio recognition was good, the MIDI connection was perfect allowing me to practice and not wake up the rest of the family. I wasn’t using the theme notes until my grandson came over and wanted to try playing but only using the soccer ball and the ghost at Halloween; what a brilliant idea to encourage children!!! My only request to the developer is to now create the ability to learn and practice chords in addition to single notes ( with MIDI connection this should be workable ). Well done app! Thank you
Aewaustin - Awesome app for adults.
In reading the reviews I wasn’t really sure what I was going to get, but so glad I purchase this app. It’s actually my first review ever for an app because I’m quite surprised folks don’t love it more, and wanted to share my take on it. I am learning piano and just wanted to have an app to figure out the notes with, it’s absolutely perfect for that. You get to choose exactly what notes she would like to practice and then it makes a little game for you to practice, just in the 10 minutes I used it it was so helpful. So definitely purchase if you want a simple to learn notes. And for adults it has just a simple interface that doesn’t have animals or goblins or anything for kids.
Ved Iyengar - Bad reception—good concept
Although this game has an amazing idea of teaching students how to learn notes (as a student using this app for years now), it's response to notes is garbage. I really feel bad writing this review, because it as always been my go-to piano practicing app, but I think it is time to point out the problems. Often times when I am playing notes correctly, it glitches. Sometimes, it gives me a couple of seconds penalty (even when I am playing the notes correctly and in the correct octave), while other times it just completely ignores me. Either way, the app is glitchy. Even though of it's defects, in the long run, it helps get the job done.
Amazing concept and I really think it definitely hooks players. Looking forward to the new update!!
Khsmile - Exactly what I was looking for!!
I am so happy with this app. I am a piano teacher and I am so excited that I found this app! I love that it works with the sound from a real piano and that it recognizes octaves! My students love working in this app and one even asked to do it first because she wanted to beat her own score. Thank you so much for making such a perfect customizable and yet simple app that even my younger students can use. I used to time my students playing notes with regular flash cards but I couldn’t flip the cards fast enough and it was a little stressful because I would drop cards or the timer wouldn’t work right. So many things for me to have to think about. Not any more! I am so happy!!
SDBuzzcut - Speedy Response Time
At first I was worried about the “listening” response time so I purchased the Yamaha MD-BT01 Bluetooth adapters for my Disklavier Enspire piano before purchasing Note Rush, but “listening” via the iPhone microphone is just as speedy as the MIDI Bluetooth.
At first I couldn’t figure how to save multiple versions of my own level cards but one reviewer’s video showing saving QR codes to Photos and then loading those was very helpful. If there’s a manual describing the process, I couldn’t find it. It’s an interesting solution to the problem of how to save your own level cards.
Also had a difficult time figuring how to get naturals, sharps and flats in the level design mode, but then realized there are ghosted columns for naturals, flats and sharps. Just select the note you want on the line or space in the appropriate column.
This is a terrific app! Associating the notes on the keyboard with the notes on the staffs is much better for me than clicking a button on the regular flash card apps. The other listening app I tried had very slow response times.
3Pianokids - Mostly great
I am pretty impressed that this app can recognize notes on the piano. However, sometimes it won’t recognize a note. It doesn’t recognize treble clef b, which is super frustrating for my son. Also, I have 3 kids who play piano and it would be really nice to be able to have more than one custom game. Their teacher assigns them certain notes to practice and they each have different ones. It would be great if they could each have their own custom game so I don’t have to make a new one each time.
Sambanstan - Love this app! (would love to see moveable clefs)
I teach music, and this app has been wonderful for my students. It’s a great way to warm up at the start of lessons or to break up activities. I love the level editor! It allows you to choose the notes students are quizzed over. The ability to change themes on the home screen is also great! Students love to choose a theme before starting the game. I would love to see one featured added to this app: moveable clef support. I have some students who need to learn tenor clef and alto clef, and I would love to be able to use this app with them!
Note Rush gal - Love note Rush
This is a Extremely good App plus I really like it and and it lets me practice my piano a little bit most of the times I really really like it now that I fix my piano problem because it didn’t tell the letters but ever since I’ve open that little top part it’s been working because the thing you open that you can hear it I guess when you can hear like super loud it’s only when you open the little thing that’s on the piano and then ever since I’ve done that it’s been working so yeah I gave you five star raid
Qj Foss - Fantastic!
I’m 28 and learning how to sight read music for the piano. I’ve searched all over for something to study the grand staff and this is exactly what I was looking for. The custom level designer is brilliant.
The only thing I could really see to improve this would be having multiple notes at the same time. Even just one note on each clef to practice sight reading with both hands. I could see how this would be difficult to implement with the microphone but if possible it would be a game changer.
Love the app. Keep up the great work!
Justplayin88 - I love this app!
Technically it’s already a 5 star platform. I love how it builds my topographical confidence while reinforcing not looking down to find my hands on the keyboard.
The reason for 4 out of 5 stars? I would like to see multiple note practice. I.e. chords and intervals. I would also like to find notes simultaneously on the bass and treble clefs. That would build a great foundation for sight reading.
Thank you for providing such an awesome learning tool!
Ikswol - Not flash cards
This is not flash cards. It will not help the student recognize the note. Really disappointed. A waste of money. I want my students to be able to learn note names when they see the notes. It’s hard enough to recognize notes when a student starts without having spiders on the staff that make it harder to tell what note is supposed to be represented. Also, there should be a way to just learn the note names, without having to play the note. Sure, being able to hear the note is good and being able to tell the note you played is the right note is good, but start by having note recognition.
Ineluki Storm King - Best sight-reading app I know of.
I have found no other app where you can practice playing the notes on your ACTUAL keyboard, not just touch the screen. Also, it’s only 5 bucks once, not some expensive monthly subscription.
I hope this developer also creates one like this for chords and intervals (this one only does individual notes) because as far as i know no one’s ever done that
Samblantha - Great app for learning notes!
I really like this app and have started using it with all my piano students at their lessons. They love trying to beat each other's time.
I like that the app requires them to play the correct key on the piano/correct octave rather than just choose the right note name. All the different themes available in the app make it fun for kids too. Can we have more to choose from in the future? 😁
Deesmateen - Ok app
I bought this app as a requirement for my piano and the mic or audio doesn’t work as well as I would like it too!! I started humming with the tune as I play but apparently that screws it up so now I get confused and even when I am not playing it still sometimes won’t listen so if there was a way to fix that, please let me know!!😅
Alster44 - Fabulous!
This is my students’ favorite game for practicing note-to-key identification. A note appears on the staff and the student plays the key on any type of piano. The app “hears” the note played and responds appropriately. The game can be customized for each student. Seasonal items can be chosen in place of regular notes. This is a well-designed tool for reviewing notes. I highly recommend it for both teachers and students.
Jocelyn.bethany - My 7 y.o. reads music because of this app
So much better than how I learned to read music in the ‘80s. It feels more like how I learned to type than how I learned to read piano music. My 7 year old quickly learned all the notes using this app. I wish that they would make a version for playing chords from basic chord symbols (Gmaj7, G7, G-7, etc.).
Mxdu - nice!
love this app- using it with my Celtic Harp, had taken a break from playing for a couple of years and needed to review note reading- this is doing the trick. the only suggestion is to make the ‘playing-testing’ time longer or adjustable; spurts are a touch too short for my tastes, but everything else makes up for it Highly recommend this app for new and need to review players.
MDT10065 - My student’s favorite!
My students ask if they can do Note Rush in every lesson and then they ask if they can do it over and over. I have now encouraged my parents to get this app and am using a chart to allow each of them to see their progress. It encourages them to get better and better through friendly competition. I highly recommend this app!
Rb373 - Great for Music Teachers and Students!
This game goes above and beyond any other flash card type game out there. Some apps have tried to come close to this level of awesomeness but have seriously fallen short. My students love this game and ask to play it weekly. You NEED it if you’re a music teacher or if you’re a student wanting to work on your note reading skills!
Alecci789 - Excellent for teaching
Lots of my students struggle with reading notes coming out of the hand position training you get in most method books these days. Note rush really helps to recognize notes on the staff quicker! I just wish they would put in the number of inaccuracies on the results at the end of each round, to help track progress
NerdyCheck - Great app for piano players
This app is great for learning how to site read. It displays a note and then listens to see if you played the right note, only moving on after you get it right. You can also start with a smaller set of the clef if you are just starting out. Well worth it. Download this app. You'll be great at reading piano music in no time.
Marzip1 - Fun! Wish you could save different students profiles
Great app! Love that students have to play it on the piano...not just knowing what it is on a flash card. Only gave it 4 stars because I wish there was a way to have different student profiles on it so students could save their own times and progress (unless this exists and I don’t know how to do it!)
Annie- teacher of many - Awesome app
This has been a staple during my piano lessons, my only critique would be that I would love to see quarter notes, eight notes, and half notes. Most student can pick out those whole notes, but the stems start to confuse them. I think having stems would be good practice
Tenorguy10 - My students love this!
I teach beginner to intermediate level piano lessons, and this app is our weekly warm-up. My students ask for it! And I notice significant improvement in their recognition speed in their repertoire. I would love to see accidentals added at some point. Maybe through a feature I could toggle on and off?
Dlighters - Almost perfect!
Hello note rush! Is anyone out there? We would love higher notes please, please, please!!! Violins would benefit from some higher pitches so they can practice shifting. Also alto clef for violas and tenor clef would be nice. We have been telling everyone we know about this app. Well worth the $5 but would be an amazing practice tool with a larger note range. Thank you!
Pianovona - Student favorite!
My piano students LOVE Note Rush! It’s my go-to app at the end of each lesson. It really helps with note recognition and keyboard geography. Kids love trying to beat their previous time and love being able to choose different backgrounds. As a teacher, I love that it is customizable to each student’s needs.
GreenCowboy - Love this app!!!
My 6 year old son loves this app and I can’t wait to use it with my beginner percussion students! I hope the future releases will be able to customize the game a bit more between the available notes and or just isolate a certain clef. I would love to be a beta tester if the developer needs more!
IDK3643 - Good note training app, needs one thing
I really like the idea of a mic to play along with the notes. I’m not sure if I missed it, but I don’t think this app has more than 2 ledger lines on the staffs. It would be really helpful if there was a setting to add all the ledger lines you would see on an 88-key piano to the custom games. I’ll update to 5 stars if this gets added.
Sarah Run - Great! But....
I love the app and my students’ note reading has greatly improved using it! But the new update with the time penalty for wrong notes.... can we make that optional? For some students it’s really helpful to discourage guessing, but for other students it’s too stressful and discouraging for them. So I’d love to be able to choose that option.
DACCFLUTES - Great app, hidden features :)
Love the concept.
But it needs accidentals (oh wait, it has them if you make your own custom level!), and transposition for Instruments not in the key of C (oh wait, it does this automatically when you play the starting “middle C” reference note on, say, your Bb horn!). It could use more ledger lines (2 Cs above the staff e.g. for my flute students), to make it perfect :)
Lakefrost - Really Annoying Glitch
I like Note Rush as an app and all but it has a really annoying glitch where it doesn’t show the note that needs to be played. Other than that, it’s a pretty cool app and it’s helpful when practicing reading notes :)
AZpianoBek - Great interactive, self-correcting “flash cards”
I recommend this game to all piano students. I love that it is much more fun than flash cards, and it self corrects. If you don’t play the note correctly, it stays on the screen.
Any instrument can use this as far as I can tell; it doesn’t require a midi hookup.
Jantx12 - Great teaching tool
I have taught piano lessons for over 40 years and this app is a favorite in my studio. You see the note and play the matching piano key. I love the customize feature where you can set up the game with exactly what notes you want to focus on.
Hegjbgdfhhrrt - Best ever
Note rush made it so much more fun to ply piano. I knew about all the notes in a couple days after downloading it. I highly recommend it to you and anyone else who you know that plays piano.
Candclin - So much better than flash cards
My son loves using his app and his note reading has improved tremendously since starting. I'm thankful he can do this on his own and it keeps track of his high scores which is highly motivating for him.
Patrick peng - Best sight reading app ever!!
You can custom your own level card to practice sharps and flats!! One of a kind. The microphone recognition is accurate and sensitive, unlike some other apps takes long to recognize
Leftycombo - pretty good
So far I've only used my electric keyboard to calibrate. Does well with that, but I haven't tried it on a regular piano. Quizzes sometimes a bit too fast, but maybe I can change that in "settings ". Overall, nice for the price, note reading app.
Phil the IV - Almost completely perfected
When you use note rush, notes are thrown at you to play in a random order, I wish there was an option with a melody that forms instead of just random notes.
1*() - A+
This app is amazing it helps my son to practice the notes he has been struggling on in a song so I definitely recommend this app
Avid fane - So far so good
So far I think it’s a really good app I just started using it and I think it’s helping me tremendously hopefully I will be able to write a more in-depth review At a future date
Amy with girl number 3 - App does not recognize electric piano
This app has cool themes, but it doesn’t recognize our electronic piano when we play the notes. We play them over and over again and sometimes it will register on the 5th or 6th time playing the note. Very disappointed I wasted my money on this app.
Carnes itunes - Problems for iPhone 11!
I have used this app many times on other devices and love it but for some reason it wont work on my iPhone 11. Me and my brother both have the same phone and for some reason it seems to be having trouble recognizing the notes when I play them. Fix this issue and it would be great.
Mkc32 - Great app!
it has helped my kids with there piano so much. I have seen so much improvement since we have used it!!
SmilingSings - Piano students love it
My piano students enjoy this app, they think they're playing a game but they're really strengthening their note reading and placement, sneaky!
12105red - A great way to learn your notes
It has helped my daughters so much they are so much better now because of it so download note rush
Djensen85 - Incredible!
It helped my seven year old boy figure out his notes within weeks! 🤩
Mommyamyf - Favorite App for Studio
This is my favorite app for my piano studio. Such an important tool in helping my students learn and be confident with their notes. The themes are so much fun and keep things fresh and new.
Musicalmybus - Customizable note reviews
Now that I can customize the notes to hone in on exactly what needs work this app is officially 5 star status! Thank you!
AdamAdam978 - Great!!!
It helped me a-lot my teacher was going to quit on me but I learned to read from note rush and I’m the best kid in my class so you should get note rush😌👍🏻
Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!
Chan Pui-Kwan - Great App with room for improvement
I love how this app can listen for your instrument to see if you have played the correct notes. This is a great improvement over apps that utilise only MIDI input as now one can use any instrument for his/her practise! I can now practise my saxophone sight reading! Yay!
Two more functional addition would make it even better and a more complete and powerful practicing tool:
1) Key Signatures in various keys:
A lot of us struggle with remembering which notes are to be sharped or flatted in the different keys, and being able to practise in different keys would be great. I was surprised that this has not been incorporated as one of its core settings as many other sight reading apps do have it.
2) More ledger lines Notes:
Another area that musicians may be struggling with and need practising on.
I would not mind paying for IAP should these functions be added!
Han 13$# - Music
This is a great game and I recommend it to everyone who is struggling to learn their notes! It’s kid friendly and is easy to use. However sometimes I find all the different backgrounds distracting when trying to learn. Overall this is an amazing app for everyone to use and have fun
Ctviywuqehvice - Great App But A Bit Overpriced
I got this app recommended to me by my piano teacher and I love the app. The only gripe that I have with it is that I think the app is a bit too expensive for what it has to offer. I know this app has no adds and you need money somehow, and I’m not saying to make it free or anything. Just make it a bit cheaper the $8.00, like around $5.00. But that aside. If you want to learn note reading I say this app is perfect as well as other apps like a great one called Staff Wars. Anyway, thank you for your time, bye!
TrustworthyReviewer - The Best Note Reading App
As a classroom music teacher, this has been a brilliant app for students to use on their various instruments. It works exactly as expected and students are engaged from start to finish. Definitely superior to the other apps out there and without the tedious ads!
Scozmo - Really good for most instruments.
Would love to be able to use this with all instruments, maybe adding in other clefs (alto clef). It works great for guitar if you play C below middle C for the reference note but would love to see an alto clef added for Viola! Thanks!
JanePM - Excellent
This app was recommended by my piano teacher. It is a great help In getting a connection between the notes on a score and the keys on a piano. Thank you.
Ugskzraizraizraoze - The best app in human history 🎹🎵🎶
Thank u sooooooo much for making this app! it is easy to use and everything is simple, easy and awesome!! (Definitely get this) it’s the best!!!!!!!! (^ O ^ )
Mikeontime - Good app
Great if struggling to learn notes, especially as an adults. Does struggle to pick up lower bass clef notes though
DM :D - Great app
This has made me way more fluent with site reading on the piano and is worth the money
Tbabe888 - Learning notes
Brilliant for learning notes at random
Colinchixin - App hearing
This is a good app to learn notes however this happens quite often which is that sometimes the app doesn’t hear the noises from our instrument
Zztwqux - Great app
Great app. Wouldn’t mind seeing 2 note recognition on harmonic intervals esp around middle c and also 3 to 5 note melodic application.
Instruments yay - Amazing
This is an amazing app and you can learn so many things
SushiRules!🍱 - For you
This app is good but you should make it all Instruments so we can all enjoy this app😉🎹🎼🥁🎧🎤🎬🎻🎷🎺🎸
OhHowILoveJesus - I am learning so much!
It improves my sight reading so much!
Brickleback - Good app but..
Even with perfectly tuned piano or keyboard it fails to detect some notes, making the whole beat the clock aspect pointless.
Ajabana - It’s pretty good
I like it because I do piano and it’s really good to learn from.
DM-79 - Best note reading app!
Simply the best way to learn your notes.
Anthiny norbert - Very helpful
All good except it won’t always accept b
Pancake = !! - Best note app
I love how the app can respond to your sounds and noises!
Fhuajnidsahita - Great but....
It's a very good app but it detects some notes
Yoyo cookie - AMAZING
It’s very fun and helpful I recommend it
Annelisemary - GREAT
I love it because it helps me in piano.
Eturv - Note Rush
this really helps me lern how to play the piano. Thanks. Sophie Turville .
Jellyqqyf - Great app！
i Iike it helps my learning。
Dyouldu - Great app
Great app well worth the AU$5.99 price tag
H7tfygj - Emma Chen
When I played a note it can’t hear it so pls improve that and we even payed u $8.00
Zacko1234 - Great app!
A great App! As a guitar teacher, this app is so good because it listens to the instrument for the correct answers, meaning my students can play the answers instead of saying them or pressing a button. Very responsive! The themes make it cool for kids. Thanks for his app!
##Chow - Faulty
This app is faulty. Paid and downloaded it and it’s a blank app. Don’t waste your money on this.
Isaaclee1 - Simple concept, perfect execution
There's a lot to be said about an app that can do one thing well. This is one of those apps. If you are looking to get better at recognising notes and playing them on your instrument, this app will help immensely. It's designed with kids in mind but adults can play too. Highly recommended.
Mishpinner - Brilliant app for teaching note naming skills!
As a music teacher, I think this app is one of the best for practicing note names in the stave as it "listens" to your instrument and you have to play the correct note in real time. Recommended.
Humphreym - Simple & Sweet
Works great on my acoustic guitar! I love how it "listens" to my guitar, and waits until I get the note right before giving me the next note.
If you or your child are learning the notes on the treble and/or bass clef, definitely try this app.
It won't help with timing or more advanced stuff... but it's great for drilling in where the notes are, for a fraction of what a guitar lesson costs.
I'll be telling my guitar teacher about this app.

Piaresquared - Review
My learning was stalled by not knowing the notes. My teacher recommended this and it helps. Thanks
Bbbhgufufh - Yes
I really love the app it’s really helps me it’s the best app I’ve never known
但是你要 - This is a good app
This app really helped me with my sight reading skills and has made practicing piano fun! I really recommend this app.
Amiiiiiii - Really good app for learning your notes
It really helped my kids to learn the notes. It was really good. Try it download the app. There teacher recommended this app to help them know there notes! Thank you!
Tocra911 - App does not work!
Paid for this app and it doesn’t even work!!!
Lallirina - Good enough but…
I’m not very impressed by this type of note rush. But I think it needs an improvement. Somehow it keeps thinking that I’m doing the wrong notes. Why does that have to happen? I dunno.maybe god or heaven knows the answer.
Rogue598 - Great app
It’s great I just wish there was an ‘infinite’ mode where it continually sent randomized notes without stopping. I don’t care too much about the timer or getting stars I just want to keep practicing without having to stop every time I complete the loop.
Noteonster - Needs minor fixes
Sometimes the app shows the penalty sign even when it is not on, or I haven’t done anything on. Overall, this is a great app, and definitely worth the cost.
Recommend for all levels.
Motherofboysss - Awful music app!
This is the worst music app! My son knows the notes and it keeps saying he’s got it wrong. Very very frustrating! We’ve tried all the trouble shooting ideas mentioned but nothing works! Spent $6.99 on crap! I would appreciate my money back. I give it 0 stars!
Boba_thcat10 - Not bad
This app is not bad
🎹player - Note Rush Review
It is a really great app! Lots of fun for the younger students learning there notes, and even for me a grade 10 piano player , I can always get faster! It make note reading a lot more modern then the typical flash cards. Thanks Note Rush!
Tara Lund Music School - Best note reading App around
I have been using Note Rush for over a year now. It’s works perfectly. It had some teething problems early on but that’s all fixed now and the new update that works with midi where I plug it directly into my keyboards with headphones, works amazing for my group lessons. Kids can’t wait to beat their peers each week. Thanks Thomas
Rich12546 - Extra content
Great app! Periodic new themes help keep it fresh!
Maybe some additional content like sharp/flat notes? Harmonic intervals would also be a plus! I wouldn't mind paying a couple extra bucks for that content.
Kkpianokk - Awesome!
I am a piano teacher with a PhD in music education. I use this app with most of my beginner and intermediate students and have seen tremendous improvement in their reading skills. It must be the only one out there (when I first got it) that had you PLAY the notes in the appropriate octave. The game and timing aspects provide great motivation to get better, the different levels correspond perfectly to the levels in their method books, and the create-your-own version is super! We love all the themes, especially the seasonal ones. Thank you so much for this! The price point is just right... parents don’t mind it too much (less than a book) but it’s just enough to take it seriously.
Oto note - Note rush
Note rush helps us read notes
Do do so - Why this game is four stars
Everytime i play the correct note it ignors and says its not correct but when it actually is correct
Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkka boooooom - New update sucks🙁🙁🙁🙁!
But still it helps
JBaigent - A great addition to any studio
I have had this app for over a year and have noticed an increase in successful note recognition. This has transferred over to better Piano proficiency and score reading.
FM Mama Joy - Note rush rocks!
I downloaded this app after my child's piano teacher recommended it. Initially I didn't know how it worked and quickly wrote a bad review. The developer contacted me within a day and explained how it works.
This app has helped my daughter a lot, she knows all her notes now. The app is definitely an essential part of her home music practice.
Mymelody4355 - Awful piano music app
EWWWWWW I HATE PIANO IT THE WORST DONT DOWNLOAD IT IT BAD
Ipiano123 - He best note readying app!! EVER!!
If you teach music, you need this app!! Most of my students now own this app and it has made a huge difference! So much fun, too!!
