About

Learn all about Clairnote DN and how it makes music easier to read and learn. Start with this interactive "AudioVisualizer" which lets you see and hear the notes that you play on an on-screen keyboard (or a Janko-style keyboard, guitar, violin, or mandolin).

In addition to the notes you play, you can also see and hear scales, intervals, and modes. For more discussion and illustrations check out the Staff, Scales, and Intervals pages.
