How to Use:
Pick a written note (touch the staff) and have the fingering displayed and concert pitch played. Touch a button and reveal the note on the piano.
Play a concert pitch on the piano, and have that pitch's fingering displayed. Touch a button and reveal the transposed note on the staff.

• If there are alternate fingerings available for a note or trill, a button will allow you to navigate through them.
• Use the 'Play Note' or 'Play Trill' button to repeatedly hear what's being displayed.
• Use the mute button to access the fingerings without hearing the pitches.

Selecting a Pitch:
Using the Staff (transposed for the current instrument): Simply touch and drag up and down on the staff to select the note, slide right for sharp, left for flat, or slide up and down right or left of the note for constant sharps and flats.
Using the Piano (concert pitch): Swipe to move the keyboard, tap to play notes, touch & hold then slide to glissando. When you glissando up the keyboard, notes will be notated with sharps, when you glissando down, notes will be notated with flats. When you tap specific notes they will be notated in the most common accidental for that note. ie: Eb rather than D#, F# rather than Gb.
Use the up and down arrows to move chromatically up and down without touching the music staff or piano keyboard.
