AI will replace more and more people in low-level industries. It will do in music learning domain, too. Basic things should be done by computer!
During music learning these problems exist widely: fault pitches and rhythms cannot be corrected in time because learners have no ability to hear to know the faults.
For instruments learning, many practices are needed everyday at home. During practicing at home if learners can get in-time feedbacks, the efficiency will be promoted largely.
The founder of this app, also as the dad of a child learner, has the pain spot of NO knowledge about music. So he organized the team to resolve the problem.

So you can reach the target by clicking on the start note of your section repeatedly.
Currently the sheet songs are synthesized by computer, so it sounds not real.
In addition some sheet score signatures are not supported yet.
We will improve the sheet songs later, and may supply many sources of songs.
Considering the inconvenience of operating on screen when playing instruments, we designed that the player has no need to operate on screen when playing.
1. Find out the sheet you want to play at home page. Click to open the sheet and enter into the sheet SHOW page. Confirm that current practicing mode is 'Evaluation Mode' which is at the top center.
2. Play open strings E/A/D/G notes one by one. If every note becomes blue at the top center of the page, it says all pass check.
3. Then you can see 'GO' on the screen, and hear DING sound. Then you can start your practicing.
When playing the EADG open strings, slowly, louder.
If still can not pass the check, maybe your instrument is out if tune.
In addition, since the sound of the G open string (4th) is very low, it is much difficult to recoginzed and match, and the sound need to be lourder.
The sheet show page which is in Evaluation Mode can switch Paragraph State at the top-left 'Menu'.
If the Paragraph State is enabled, then you can click to select sequential multiple sections as you want.
After paragragh selected, then start practicing from the paragrash start note. When playing comes to the paragragh end note, the practicing will finish immediately.
When sheet show page is in Evaluation Mode and Paragraph State is not enabled, you can start practicing from any note.
Before practicing, where the Start Point Flag is at is you must start playing from.
Just click the note you want to start from, then Start Point Flag switch to the new position.
After E-A-D-G open strings check passes, you just play the sheet from the Start Point Flag note. When you want to end the practice, just stop playing. Then after 6 seconds the app will end the practice.
During Evaluation Mode practicing, the app should move cursor which point to current played note as you play the sheet.
But sometimes the cursor does not align with the played note song, even the score following breaks off, and the app finish the practice ahead of time.
Basically it is due to: a. too many fault notes; b. the voice is not load enough; c. too much noises interferes.
If confirm the factors of noises and loud voice are excluded, we suggest you do NOT use LIAN app to evaluate before you are familiar with the sheet.
Click the metronome button which is under the top-left 'Menu' button, then open the Metronome page.
At the bottom-right corner, can click to open/close the voice of Metronome.
If the Metronome is open state, after evaluation practicing starts Metronome sound will rise. Metronome sound will disappear when the practice ends.
At the top-center of sheet show page, default selection is Evaluation Mode. Can click to switch to Following Mode.
After switch to Following Mode, play the current note which cursor points, if correct, the cursor will go ahead to the next note. Otherwise the cursor will not go.
The use of Following Mode is for practicing pitch notes, it is not for rhythm.
After open a evaluation practicing result/record, firstly pay attention to the statistics panel at the bottom of the page.
The panel has 4 parts: Overall, Pitch, Rhythm, Note. Can click the name to switch, and also can slide around to switch.
At the Pitch part, besides attention on fault notes number, high/low side notes are also noteworthy.
On the sheet show, the light-blue background notes are practiced notes. Line segments on the horizontal line below every line of sheet means pitch/rhythm bias. Upward segments mean high, downward segments mean low. When switch to Rhythm panel part, line segments mean biases of rhythm. All else mean biases of pitch.
On the evaluation result show page, click on the note which you concern. Then at the stats panel which is at the bottom of the page, the detail of the note will show.
It should be noted that the red number which is at the right of the key of the note means cent offset. 100 cents equals to a half-tone.
After click the Play button which is at the bottom-right corner, it will play the voice from start of the practice. At the same time, the cursor will move along on the sheet.
When playing you can click any note on the sheet, then it will switch to the note to coninue playing. With this feature you can reach the target of only listening part of the voice.

This app occupy much resources indeed. It is the fact.
This sheet may be very long. For example on book there are 3 above pages.
For those long sheets we supplied separate parts in the same album. We suggest you use the parts.
Suggest you to use high-performance devices.
