Notezilla – Sync Sheet Music With Audio Recordings

Notezilla is a web-based application that synchronizes sheet music to high-quality audio recordings. Designed for musicians of all skill levels, Notezilla gives users the option of customizing song speeds and stopping songs at any point within larger scores.

Browse the songs available in Notezilla’s classical music library until you find something that piques your interest. Click “Play,” and the music will start playing through your computer’s speakers while sheet music scrolls across your screen. A red line moving along the sheet music indicates where the song is at, however Notezilla also gives you the option to remove the red line from your screen if you prefer. Adjust the speed of the song you’re listening to, or stop the song at any point along the way. You also have the option to zoom in on a particular part of the sheet music, enter full screen mode, or generate a custom link to share the recording with friends online.

By bringing audio and sheet music together under one roof, Notezilla has developed a way for musicians to listen to recordings at the same time they’re studying the associated sheet music. Although many songs are free, others will cost you $4.99. For this price, users are given unlimited access to all current songs, plus all new songs Notezilla adds in the future.

Practical Uses:

  • Teach yourself to play a favorite song on the guitar
  • Listen to a recording while studying the associated sheet music
  • Spend more time practicing your instrument outside of music class

Insider Tips:

  • Slow down a song while you’re just beginning to learn how to play it
  • Zoom in to any point within a song
  • Use shortcuts to make playback easier
  • Adjust the cursor type on your sheet music
