Note Trainer:

This is a very useful and easy to use site that shows you how many note identification answers you get right or wrong, and what percentage you get right!  Click on the 'Settings' button to change the clef.  You can also drag the notes up or down to customize the range you're working on. 


This is an excellent exercise for percussion students, helping them learn to quickly associate notes on the staff with their visual image on the keyboard.
Level 1 is the only level that is not percussion-specific.
