Interactive Fingering Charts

available for Woodwinds, Brass, and Strings

Very helpful ★★★★★

This app has been very helpful for my students who are having a hard time reading music. It is good for beginners and then it is good all over again when they start playing in positions or take a viola home for the weekend. Well worth the money.

Very helpful fingering guide ★★★★★

I bought this app to help my daughter who is learning to play the cello. It is just what I was looking for. It shows me how to play any note and is helpful in teaching her sight reading.

Finger strings ★★★★★

I play viola and after a mega struggle with finger placements, find this app a godsend. There is no quick way learning any instrument but tricks some people come up with certainly help. So I have my iPad on one side of music stand and 'Ode To Joy' on the other. Brilliant.

Interface Guide

Selecting a Pitch

Using the Staff: Simply touch and drag up and down on the staff to select the note, slide right for sharp, left for flat, or slide up and down right or left of the note for constant sharps and flats.

Using the Piano: Swipe to move the keyboard, tap to play notes, touch & hold then slide to glissando. When you glissando up the keyboard, notes will be notated with sharps, when you glissando down, notes will be notated with flats. When you tap specific notes they will be notated in the most common accidental for that note. ie: Eb rather than D#, F# rather than Gb.

Hide the piano with a touch of a button to use just the staff notation and have a larger fingering chart.

Mute Button

Use the mute button to access the fingerings without hearing the pitches.

Play Button

Hand Positions

Drag the slider (iPhone) or select the number (iPad and Mac) to display each of the 15 positions for the Violin and Viola, 16 positions for the Cello, and either 12 Simandl positions, or the 6 Rabbath positions on the Double Bass.
