Changes the Game for Musicians
Interactive sheet music comes to the Apple Books platform

Music Sight Reader is the first of its kind. In a marketplace saturated with music education apps, hardcover sheet music, and sheet music for download, Music Sight Reader rises to the top as a new way for students, educators, and musicians to practice, teach, and enjoy sight reading. The platform is neither an app nor an e-book, but rather an app/e-book combo. Music Sight Reader is interactive sheet music for your virtual bookshelf.

Essentially launching both a library and a hybrid app all in one, the first release, ‚ÄúClassical Collection Vol 1‚ÄĚ, is part of the¬†Interactive Sight Reading Series.¬†This runs on the platform,¬†Music Sight Reader, available on¬†Apple Books¬†(formerly¬†iBooks¬†from 2010 to 2018) an¬†e-book¬†reading and store application by¬†Apple Inc.¬†for its¬†iOS¬†and¬†macOS¬†operating systems.¬†Music Sight Reader¬†runs natively within¬†Apple Books¬†on Apple¬†devices¬†such as iPads, iPhones and Mac computers.

The flagship ‚ÄúClassical Collection Vol.1‚ÄĚ, includes classical duets, trios, and quartets (featuring Bach,¬†Brahms, Mozart,¬†and more), arranged for a given clef and instrument. The bass volume has been arranged for bass clef, while the guitar volume has been arranged for treble clef. This means that guitar players, for example, can now read both voices of a Mozart Sonata originally composed for piano, or a bass student can now read all parts of a Bach Chorale, originally composed for voice. Choose which part to play and¬†Music Sight Reader¬†will play the other parts, while the notes automatically scroll across the screen.

This cutting-edge format gives musicians around the globe fresh new access to some of the greatest music ever written, all without the trappings of standard sight reading apps (subscription plans and in-the-style-of arrangements). The pieces in ‚ÄėClassical Collection Vol 1‚ÄĚ can also be purchased √Ä la carte as individual works. √Ä la carte pieces and collections arranged for piano are currently under development and will be released soon.

Bruce Gertz¬†and¬†Raleigh Green¬†are onto something special with¬†Music Sight Reader. Gertz, a¬†Berklee¬†alum/educator, and acclaimed jazz bass player and Green, a professional designer, developer, musician, and educator, built this music sight-reading program with the aim of carving out a completely unique and impactful educational space. Says Gertz, ‚ÄúWe are really excited about the vast potential of what this product can provide to students and professionals all over the world.‚ÄĚ

‚ÄúThis is a really wonderful idea for an interactive Apple Books/app. Of course, not only do you practice your reading but you play through classic melodies. And you can use Music Sight Reader for analyzing some of those great compositions. Congratulations!‚Ä̬†¬†‚ÄĒ Mike Stern¬†

Miles Donahue “presents a fine contemporary jazz set” with latest release “Just Passing Thru”

Just Passing Through

O’s Notes: Saxophonist, composer and producer Miles Donahue presents a fine contemporary jazz set with¬†Just Passing Through. Bassist Joe Santerre gets in the mix on ‚ÄúLiving Room Blues‚ÄĚ before Donahue soothes us on song ‚ÄúKilling Me Softly‚ÄĚ, the lone cover. Guest Mike Stern (g) adds fusion elements to ‚Äú7-9-65‚ÄĚ and the funky ‚ÄúRailroaded‚ÄĚ. We also enjoyed the cool vibe of ‚ÄúDonny‚Äôs Groove‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúA Man of Few Words‚ÄĚ.

Miles Donahue “crosses boundaries” on latest release “Just Passing Thru”

Just Passing Thru is the latest music album by Miles Donahue. The songs feature Miles Donahue on saxophones, trumpet, and keyboards; Joe Santerre on electric bass; Larry Finn on drums; Ricardo Monzon on percussion; Alain Mallet on keyboards; with Mike Stern on guitar. The result is a versatile fusion that crosses boundaries of style and substance, from jazz to rhythm & blues to elements of rock and soul, and more. A captivating original treasury, Just Passing Thru is highly recommended. The tracks are “hear My Words”, “Living Room Blues”, “Killing Me Softly”, “Just Passing Thru”, “Donny’s Groove”, “A Man of Few Words”, “7/9/65”, “Railroaded”, and “Ireland”.
