A wonderful utility for learning notes is the usage of notation software. Using such a program helps almost playfully to find out how Notes, Rests, Accidentals or other music symbols do effect musical output. The learning basicly comes due to the fact that notation software does not allow what is against general rules in music. So itīs not possible, for example, to place a Half Rest on a space of a quarter value. In such case the software will either deny to accept the Half Rest or will move following notes for a quarter beat. In any case the program will prevent breaking musical order. Thus the user has just no choice but to learn from wrongdoing.|
Itīs clear that the usage of notation software needs at least basic knowledge of notation. But this can be learned at the lesson "The Basics of Notation" within our Free Trial Version on this site.
There is a mass of notation software out there. Most of them are shareware, some even freeware. I personally do know three of them:
Much more notation software is available. But I personally know only the three mentioned. I would appreciate your contribution to this topic. Feel free to extent my list and do share your experience with your program.
