Learn to read notes on the grand staff by playing on your real piano or any other instrument! Note Rush times you as you play each note one by one, like a deck of flashcards. Choose your favourite theme and race to earn stars and beat your best time! Make sure you get the right octave! Note Rush won't move on otherwise! A music theory must-have for a boost in your piano education and general music reading learning.
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 waits as long as it takes to find each note, so even complete beginners won't feel lost.
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 in 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.
Great for Home Practise
Students will rush to their instrument at home every day with NoteRush, chasing that elusive high score! Unlike flashcards, children can learn notes at home with no music-reading parent required to check if they're getting them correct!
Note Rush has five built-in Levels, from Middle C-Position right through to the full grand staff with 2 ledger lines above and below. Plus select between Treble Clef, Bass Clef or both! Full customisation of specific note selections is coming soon.

How well does note detection work?
Generally very well. Note Rush has been through a beta testing program and has been exposed to a wide variety of pianos and other instruments to make sure it consistently performs well. If you have trouble, read the rest of this Q&A, or contact us for support.
Does Note Rush work with Bb or other non-concert pitch instruments?
Yes. Note Rush automatically adjusts to whatever tuning your instrument uses when you first play middle C - you can even use your voice!
Are there any instruments it won't work with?
Note Rush hasn't been tested with every instrument out there, so we can't guarantee 100% success. In particular it may not work well with very low-pitched instruments like a bass guitar, or possibly some very high-pitched instruments.
What if my piano is out of tune?
As long as it is more or less in tune with itself, Note Rush should be able to adapt to it.
I'm having trouble with note detection
Try holding each note for longer, increasing the volume of the instrument if possible, or moving your device closer.
