Do you know about any android apps for piano sight-reading, which gives a feedback after each exercise?

hi

consult

I don't like apps for my studying But that is my personal choice.

Judging from your list of achievements placed under your signature I am surprised that you would need such an app.

Thank for the link I'll check it out!

Actually,  I really likes apps kind of accelerate the learning process.

Josh Write showed one in his video which was absolutely wonderful. I tried to find it but it either only exists for iOS or is only accessible in the US. I am not sure.

(Anyway I cannot see any achievement under my signature. It says: learning and wanna play. Achievement is zero.)

By the way,  thanks for your reply.

Hi Tezes123,

 

Here's the the app that Josh used:

 

Can I ask you how do you prepare for G6 Theory? I really wan't to do it but I am not sure where to start.

Thanks for the App info Bleamy,

I have the Eric Taylor theory books Volumes 1 & 2, also the G6 theory workbook (it has a big number 6 on the front) the workbook has examples of all the 5 questions and exercises in the G6 theory exam with some answers in the back. I also have a teacher who guides me as part of my piano lesson each week. Once I have worked through the questions I'll start completing past exam papers, I'm just tackling the figured base now (we left that exercise to the last) gulp :(

Anyone have any other ideas,
Thanks

Hi Tezes123,

 

Thanks for then useful information about G6 Theory.  Very good idea to ask the  teacher for help. I am going to do the workbooks as well as you do.
Good look with your study!

I really like the Wessar Sight Read 4 ap:

 

 http://sightread4.com/

 

It is programmed to simulate exam conditions. It gives you 30 seconds to look at a piece, and then it starts. It counts in two bars, and then you start reading. It "disappears" the bars after you play them, so you have to continually be reading ahead.

It seems quite good fun, but it is not quite the app the poster was looking for.

I downloaded the ABRSM one but it isn't interactive on the sight reading sections as in responding to your playing or giving feedback.

Not what I wanted
Will look for the Wesser one

I thought as much, I bought this and was a bit disappointed, as some of the examples are in the sight reading books they print.
