This deck contains the flashcards to memorize notes required for piano playing. The deck features double-sided cards and high-resolution images plus a piano recording for every note.
The goal with this deck was to provide the broadest possible coverage, so there are a lot of cards for each clef, some overlapping. The range for the bass clef is 6 octaves, the range for the treble clef is a full 7. Together, they cover the entire range of the piano (all 88 keys)
Every note has four tags attached to enable full customization of which notes one wishes to study. The tags are: Clef (treble or bass), Octave (starting at 0 and going up to 8), Accidental (natural, flat or sharp) and Note (C, D, ... B)
The octave notation assumes that the lowest key on the piano is A0, the highest is C8. The middle C is C4. Please refer to this image for clarification: http://f.tqn.com/y/piano/1/S/B/F/-/-/Scientific-Pitch-Notation_layout.png
All notes were machine-generated with a python script. The images were created with lilypond - http://www.lilypond.org/ - and the music files were kindly provided by the the University of Iowa - http://theremin.music.uiowa.edu/MISpiano.html
As far as I can tell, the code was bug-free and the notes are all correct, but if you find any bug, be sure to let me know in the comments and I will check it out ASAP
Sample (from 192 notes)

the front and back of a card, you can do so by clicking the Edit button, and
then clicking the Cards button.

What do I do lol
Very useful, even if it would be better with the 8va notation for higher pitches.
Simple and effective
Would you mind open sourcing your python script?
I would suggest an update. Use the 8va notation for higher notes (and 8vb for lower notes). Nobody is going to need to memorize an A7 by counting seven lines above the staff. It's more natural to encounter this: https://www.8notes.com/glossary/8va.asp lilypond can do it with "\ottava" http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.19/Documentation/notation/displaying-pitches
