Mactqh5's Review of Flashnote Derby

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:04 PM

I bought this app to use with my piano students. Overall they like the app. It has cute graphics that appeal to children. My only complaint is that I would like for there to be a two octave span on my iPad. My kids found it confusing when F5 in the treble clef had to be played at F4 in the app when doing the treble line drill for instance. I could see them wanting to press a key an octave above the keyboard display (where the note actually resides). I don't use the keyboard since it is causing them confusion.

Easy to Use

Well constructed app, clear and simple. Customize the flash cards for the notes that your class is working on makes note-naming easy and fun! My students 4-8 LOVE to try to beat their friends high scores!

This is hands down the best note naming app. It was worth every cent. I used it with my band students at school to help them learn the note names and with my beginning piano students at home. The best part about this app is being able to choose exactly what notes to quiz the student on. I haven't seen any other app that lets me do that. Highly Recommended!

Add alto clef please

I teach piano and the kids love it. Best part is being able to set notes you want on quiz without restrictions.

I really enjoyed the lessons as well as the games. I wish you had one overall review & more importantly game at the end of lesson 4 in each group that summarized/combined all 4 lessons.

Great.

I am very pleased. The difficulty is easily adjusted and you can easily focus on specific notes. My younger children really like it.

Love it!

Jets21144's Review of Flashnote Derby

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:04 PM

I use this a LOT with my piano students. I am delighted with the new option of playing the notes on the piano instead of tapping them on the screen. This is my favorite feature! Thanks for adding that. I have noticed sometimes it doesn't give an "x" if the wrong note is played. My student hit a Bb a couple of times instead of a B, and it allowed her to try again and get it right. I would prefer an "x" first time, but apart from that it's a wonderful upgrade. Keep up the good work!

Great concept. Reward system could use improvement!

musician_mom's Review of Flashnote Derby

Reviewed on 8/28/19 2:04 PM

I was excited to find this app to help my 4 year old daughter read notes better. She plays the piano and is beginning to read notes, but isn't fluent yet, so I thought this app might help. (She reads on a 3rd grade level, so I think she is capable of learning how to read notes.) Most kid apps we have are encouraging and use positive reinforcement. If you miss a question, you are encouraged to try again, and when you get it right, there's some sort of positive reinforcement. However, in this app, if you answer incorrectly, you hear "boo" sounds and unless you get all questions right, you lose and a sad tune is played. It's not encouraging at all and makes her not want to try again. If this was fixed, it would be a great app. But not as is.
