Learn to read notes faster!
Next to making music I also enjoy programming. I've started a small program called SpeedSightRead which tries to help you improving your sight reading speed. This is free and open source software licensed under the GPLv3 license, meaning that you can use and modify it anyway you like (as long as you also make your new code free and open source software).
It will display random notes (from a selection of possible notes that you can configure) and ask you to either type the correct name or click the correct piano key.
It has been tested on Windows and Linux systems, but probably also can be made to work on other platforms. Get it here!
There's an installshield available here for people using a windows systems. If you use another operating system, you will need to read the instructions on how to build and run the program from source code. It's not as difficult as it looks :)
