Etude Sight Reader

 the better way to learn music sight reading


Etude Sight Reader is a Music Sight-Reading Trainer software application.

And Etude Sight Reader indicates your correct and wrong notes on the screen.

You can download Etude Sight Reader 1.4 from the Download Page. It is a fully functional version of the program, with a 30 day trial period.
