Sight Reading Factory

The sight reading and sight singing exercises produced by the Sight Reading Facotry are governed by many rules so that they make musical sense in that they are rhythmically, harmonically and tonally appealing. In other words, although the music is computer-generated, it still sounds like real music.
With the advent of SMART Boards and Digital Video Projectors, the Sight Reading Factory is a great tool for the classroom. Sight reading exercises can be projected to the front and center of the classroom for a choir, concert band, or string orchestra to practice sight reading together. Students can also utilize the app at home on their computer, smart phone or tablet.
