Announcing Sight Reading Studio

Sight reading is one of the most important skills for any musician to develop, but it can be challenging to find new pieces to play for sight reading practice. That’s why we are excited to announce that the MakeMusic team is working on a brand new web-based application that will help musicians of all skill levels develop their sight reading abilities. 

With Sight Reading Studio, you will be able to quickly craft automatically-generated sight reading exercises based on a wide variety of options and send them to your musicians, empowering their increased musical independence. The musicians will even get assessment feedback on the sight reading performance in real-time as they play.

Sight Reading Studio will be available as part of the MakeMusic Cloud subscription, as well as a standalone subscription launching on September 6th. Subscriptions to Sight Reading Studio will be available for as little as $4.99 per year, making it the perfect low-cost, high-value tool for any musician.
