    Cool piano theory & musical sheet

    Do you know of a software that can teach me to read the stuff (notes from musical sheet)
    I have my midi keyboard connected and let's say the software shows a note on the staff and i have to press the right key...from beginner to advanced...different exercises...
    And would be cool if it is also free

    See, Hear and Understand - ChordWizard Music Theory 3.0 contains How Music
    Works, a comprehensive suite of multimedia tutorials that explain music in
    clear, simple language you can relate to.

    Packed with over 100 topics, and illustrated with 250 diagrams and 600
    demonstration sounds, ChordWizard Music Theory 3.0 is approachable for
    beginners. It starts with the very basics of sound and music, but it also
    advances to topics which are valuable for professional musicians.

    You will learn how to use all of the musical concepts in practical ways with
    your own accompaniment, improvisation and songwriting activities.

    The How Music Works tutorials are a major enhancement over the music theory
    tutorials included in either ChordWizard Gold or Silver Edition 2.0, with
    more than twice the content, and much better coverage of most of the
    topics. It also contains a huge number of extra diagrams and sounds.

    Whatever musical instrument or style you are interested in playing,
    ChordWizard Music Theory 3.0 will be an essential source of information
    and guidance for years to come.

    From the Beginning

    No prior knowledge is needed to use ChordWizard Music Theory. It starts
    from the very beginning with the basics of sound waves and music, covering
    the origins of pitch, octaves and notes.
    Even accomplished musicians may be surprised to discover gaps in their
    knowledge of these musical foundations.

    Throughout these topics are many sounds which reinforce and bring to
    life the musical concepts being covered.

    Navigating between topics is made easy with the contents list on the
    left of the workspace. You can bookmark your place to pick up quickly
    from where you left off in your last session.

    Staff Notation

    Staff lines are the standard form of written music used around the world.
    Detailed coverage is given, not just to how they work, but why.
    The importance of the Major scale is introduced, and key signatures for all
    of the Major scales are logically explained. Also included is a
    comprehensive reference of chords and other scales, and how they are
    constructed and used.

    Real Examples

    Throughout the tutorials are extensive real world examples of chords and
    scales in use, drawn from all styles of music, from classical and folk
    through to jazz and rock.
    Each of the examples can be played so you can hear them in action, and
    understand what makes each of these musical elements and styles distinct
    from each other.

    Common musical conventions such as slash chord notation, substitution and
    transposing are explained.

    Attention is also given to the scales found in non-western cultures, and
    how you can use them to add exotic spice to your musical creations.

    Improvisation and Songwriting

    An exclusive feature of ChordWizard Music Theory is the thorough coverage
    of the elusive arts of improvisation and songwriting.
    The relationships between chords and scales, and how they create melodies
    and harmonies that work together, are demystified.

    You will understand as never before the value and meaning of key centres
    and scale modes, and how you can use them to create effective and original
    music.

    You will also learn what makes the Blues different to any other musical
    style.
