Note Reading: new F-clef and G-clef exercises

For the F-clef and the G-clef I have made extra exercises.

Five types of exercises have been added:

  • Smart notes with time limit: practise reading smart notes with time limit of 2 minutes and 30 seconds for the whole exercise.
  • Reading all notes with time limit: practise reading all notes with time limit of 2 minutes and 30 seconds for the whole exercise.
  • Reading all notes with invisible clef.
  • Accidentals: practise reading notes with sharp and flat.
  • Accidentals: practise reading notes with double sharps and double flats.

These exercises can be found in Chapter 9. F-clef and the Chapter 10. G-clef. With these two chapters, you are able to study and practice the F-clef and the G-clef separately.

Seven exercises are now available for each of these chapters:
