Play On Your Instrument
Note reading is best learnt in the context of how you identify and play each note - on your acoustic or MIDI instrument.
Designed for Teachers
...and not as a replacement for them! Create fully customizable note sets and easily send them home to students.
Engage with fun themes that don't get in the way of learning, or opt for traditional notation.
Note Rush fits with all teaching methods, whether you favor a purely intervallic approach or use traditional mnemonics! We promote learning key landmark notes then reading adjacent notes intervallically for the best results in learning to read piano notation.
Note Rush features a unique landmarks-based hints system (optional) that highlights nearby landmark notes to read intervallically from. Over time students naturally move from reliance on landmarks to a more intrinsic staff-to-keyboard association.
Use preset note ranges or create your own set of levels to suit your teaching style. Create a personalized level to target a particular student’s needs.
