  • Thank you for making such a useful Software. It helped me a lot. I would like to see in future versions ability to practice for example Treble + Treble Clef (octave 0 + octave 1), Bass+Bass. And to show notes in groups like 3,4,6 notes. For example show 4 notes in treble for a second or less (improving visual memory) then show 4 at bass clef, other exercise with both treble and bass, or treble+treble. This will help reading ahead, which is important in reading sheet music. Please try to implement these features. Thank you.
