    "This was a pretty good application. I had never been able to read sheet music and personally I never thought I'd be able to. After using this application for a couple of weeks I'm proud to say I actually can read sheet music to some degree. I think if you use this for a few months you will know how to read music like a pro."

    "I have tried a few apps and one of my friends thought I'd try GarageBand. It has some useful features and I like the usability. I just think it didn't have as much of what I needed as far as music to read and really learn. But not too bad considering the efficiency. "

    "If you're someone like I was, who couldn't read sheet music to save his life, then forScore can help with learning to read them a bit. Granted, if you wanted to be lazy, you could let the app do the reading for you and simply play by ear to its generated music, but those who want to actually learn to read sheet music themselves will find this to be a very helpful tool to help them know if they're playing the right notes or not. The operation of this app is super easy and straightforward as well too, so you don't need a lot of technical know-how to jump right in. I recommend this app to music learners of all skill levels."

    "This app works incredibly for anyone attempting to learn sight reading for the guitar. It has various exercises and visualizations of notes that will help you increase note recognition and speed of sight-reading. The only thing is that it is very much geared towards the guitar. For another instrument it would be more difficult to connect notes on the page with keys and/or fingerings."
