● What is the best way of using Pianonome?
Pianonome has two modes, Practice and Evaluation. In the Practice mode, you play the selected music score, the app listens and knows what note you are playing. If you play wrong notes, the app will mark them in red. You can set the metronome to the tempo you want to practice at. The unsteady rhythmically notes are marked with a box. You can tap on the pause button and you can scroll backward. After tapping on the play button you start playing.
In the evaluation mode, Pianonome is strict. You have to play the correct note in order to move on to the next note in the score. The number of your mistakes is counted. At the end of the score, you can see your performance in the past ten sessions. This way you can test yourself, and see how over time you are improving your skills.
