    Default iPhone App for learning Music Rhythm Notation?

    Hi all,

    I've been struggling to get good at sight reading music rhythms and wanted a quick way to check my interpretation of pieces of music and came across an iPhone App called "Dr Rhythm" that helps quite a bit.

    ( http://www.farnellcomputerservices.com/drrhythm )

    It lets me tap in notes/rests/ties/triplets, set the Italian speed or BPM and time signature and plays the rhythm back and shows me whats playing too.

    The reason for iPhone app is that I have it on the music stand while I'm playing, I haven't the hassle of wandering off to a computer to check, I do it 'on the spot'.

    Does anyone have any other apps that they would recommend that do this sort of thing?

    Cheers!

    Good luck but will it help with awkward cross-rhythms?
    I'm thinking of the bulk of Chopin's Fantasie-Impromptu requiring 4 against 3,
    and things like Debussy's Isle Joyeuse whose middle section is 3 against 5.

    Where I've got stuck, usually because I can't free up independence of separate hands, I write the thing out graphically based on the lowest common denominator and practice slowly until the it's well embedded, then I can let go, so to speak.

    Some people are naturals for this kind of thing. Not me, alas!

    I've written to the developer requesting exactly that feature! He's working on it now.
