SnapNPlay music


Your phone can sight read sheet music using Music OCR. "SnapNPlay music" allows you to take a picture of sheet music and play it back. It is true sheet music reader designed for students. Snap a picture of sheet music and watch the notes light up in time as you hear the music played back to you. Select an instrument to watch it play the notes in time to the music. Choose between piano, recorder, trumpet, guitar, violin, viola, cello, and bass. Watch the positions on the instrument light up and learn to play with ease!


For optimal results hold your camera as close as possible to the line of sheet music. Do not include clef, key signature nor time signature in snap. When holding the camera too far away, it doesn't work as well.

The workflow:
Snap a line of sheet music. Fit the music in the rectangle and keep it steady. DO NOT include Key and Clef symbols in the picture. Select the Key and Clef. Edit the music. SnapNPlay will detect most notes and rhythms, but you will have to analyze and correct the music. Play the music. Learn the tune. Select an instrument. Save the snap. Snap the next line...save it. Snap some more..save it. Then you can combine snaps that you saved and hear an entire tune played while watching the notes light up in time. Adjust the tempo or transpose the tune. Sing it, play it on your fiddle, recorder, trumpet, viola, cello, bass, guitar or piano.

Currently the SnapNPlay algorithm only tries to detect notes, their length and accidentals. It does not try to parse triplets, rests, or grace notes. It does a great job at helping you learn a tune and learning to read sheet music. Just spend a few minutes snapping and learning. After you learn the tune, you will always be able to play it!

Needs updating I bought this app when I had a Note 3 and it worked beautifully. The music had to be altered some but it was really easy. I have since upgraded to the Note 4 and although it still takes the pictures and you can modify it, the options for changing the length of the notes no longer shows which one is which.

Finally, an app I'm willing to support with my money! 6-28-2012 Great work so far. Reading multiple staves and reading multiple layers on a single staff will be very helpful when you are able to work that out. Update 11-8-2014 - has this technology improved at all in the last two years? Or the last 10? I would pay again if your app was improving.

It's been very helpful - only one suggestion I am an Alto in a choir, and we NEVER sing the melody. I don't own a piano and don't play well in any case. Our new Director doesn't give out rehearsal tapes and I was literally in a panic until I found this program. I wish I had found it sooner! It does see notes that aren't notes sometimes, but it's easy to edit so no problem there. I would really like it if I could snap together more than 9 lines, though. I can't get all the way through any of my songs with 9 lines.

Didn't work. Nice idea. Wished it worked. As a violinist I needed something to help me with note reading really high notes that keep changing key. This app doesn't work with naturals, sharps, or flats. It is useless for my needs.

Terrible. Wonderful idea, but if your music has any marking at all (including a flat in front of a note or a piano marking) it will screw everything up. If your music is extremely spaced out with out any markings at all, it might work well, but other than that, this app is horrible. Don't buy it.
