Hello everyone,

I recently purchased a new Schimmel Grand piano, and have begun playing again, after years of only playing every now and then. I started lessons when I was a kid and took them into my teenage years. I then took a 20 year hiatus, and am now back at it again. Things are a little rusty, but coming back nicely. One area I have always had trouble was in sight reading. I got lazy as I have a good ear and can often play things simply by listening to them. As far as reading music, I do fine on the standard notes, but on the notes above and below the staff, I have a hard time. I also find that when I sit down to play, I can play it, but if you asked me what not it was that I was playing (particularly on the left hand)I couldn't quickly tell you.

I work in the car business and often times have hours available when I don't have a customer and nothing to do. I was wondering if anybody knows of a good software program that I can put on my computer at work that would allow me to improve my sight reading and particularly the more difficult notes. Something that does not require a midi input...perhaps a flash card kind of thing?

Has anyone heard of such a program and where I might be able to find one?

Thanks,

LDSlifter

Thanks in advance for any suggesions.

You can try www.musictheory.net. I've used this one and like it's simplicity.

I'm sure you'll get more suggestions. You may be able to find some if you do a search for "software" or "websites".
