Ready for NoteCard? Not quite, but soon enough she’ll be wanting to read music. Don’t make her learn the hard way.

Thank you for visiting this site about NoteCard, our learn-to-read-music app for your Windows PC.

Everyone who wants to learn to read music has to begin by ‘learning their notes’. Our software is the fastest and easiest way to master this vital skill.

NoteCard can help you or a musical beginner you know reach an expert level of note-reading skill in just a few minutes a day. There are no age limits. The products is equally suitable for school-age children and for adults.

The single download (for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7) includes both the free version of NoteCard, with its solid set of basic features, and an automatic 10-day evaluation license for the enhanced features of the optional paid version (see a side-by-side comparison). Either version will make learning to read music a snap. Your one-time purchase of a license code ($19.75 USD) will activate the enhanced features permanently if you want them.

We recommend working with NoteCard in brief daily sessions at the earliest possible stage of learning to read music. Soon you will be able to recognize and name the musical notes without conscious effort or the risk of error, just as you can recognize the letters of the alphabet now.
