While much of the music on TabNabber is in "Piano Tab" notation, we

other are played simultaneously).

Sight Reading Sheet Music (for pianists):
a musician, you can read and play sheet music by mentally converting
the sheet music into note names and then playing the corresponding note on your instrument.
However, advanced pianists don't need to identify all the note names as they play a
piece of music. Finding the note's key
on the piano is an important first step, but this would be quite a mental task
for playing advanced sheet music. One way to read sheet music
faster is to know that a note equals a
specific key (so you don't even think about the name of the note).
A common technique is to use the
vertical distance between notes. Look at how far apart one note is
from another and move that distance on the piano... if you work on quickly
identifying intervals in sheet music and separately work on moving intervals on
the piano with your hands without looking then put the two together it'll help
with your sight reading.
