no scroll option
the app makes you lazy about tracking where you are on the page.
please can there be an option for the music to be static and you have to keep track of where you are yourself, a bit more like traditional learning.
It is really annoying that the app now animates the scrolling. Takes just more time to find the spot. And it is information overload when jumping from the end to start in practice mode. Why??
Basically scrolling background causes dizziness for me. So disabling background animations and/or setting background to one color would help a lot.

I had to stop my first practice session due to motion sickness. PLEASE implement a stationary sheet music option.
I practice better with static sheet music and a metronome especially when I'm starting with a piece. It also makes me focus better on playing instead of gaming and thus I learn the song faster.
Can we get that? And no frigging bouncing ball in that view please. Only a sheet and notes / tabs.
Then again for that I could just resort to an online music sheet store, but none of them are very good for exploring music. If only Yousician had a sheet music store for gazillions of songs and some quality midi / AI powered backing track engine.
But let's start with a static sheet view.
Any progress on this option to stop the scrolling at least on piano music? I can't subscribe without this feature.
Yesss please, faster speed is very unpleasant

Yes, apart from the motion sickness from staring at a point on a moving background, I find it easier to see the whole pattern of a song when more of it is visible and it's not moving.
Agree 100%. Have option to turn off animated keyboard at bottom of screen.
If I am playing a lot and focusing on notes, after a while I feel like concussion. Instead of notes continuously flowing from right to left, keep the notes stationary. A bar moves from left to right to show what to play. And as this bar moves, refresh notes behind the bar.
I had to stop using Yousician a while ago because after playing I felt queasy. I just retried it today and really wish something like this suggestion had been implemented. As well as the uncomfortable feeling after concentrating on a sideways scrolling screen it just makes sense because sheet music is usually presented in, ahem, sheets. Yousician is such an impressive piece of software I hope you guys consider implementing this.
Exactly. I have an iPad 12' - would be nice to have a "paper" like view.
This is exactly what I have been looking for. I hope they come out with this option. I find it hard to learn piano like I'm playing video game. It's more about following the ball and less about actually reading the notes
I've noticed with learning how to play, sometimes I just have this yearning to see a song in static mode so I can play more at my own pace, kinda like looking at piece of music in its entirety. I find myself going into practice mode and pausing it, trying to master that little section and then trying to drag the little dot at the bottom to the next part. I want to look at it all at once!
I would love this so incredibly much.

I think that more static screen should be option. it would not case distraction, when you turn over screen. Sometimes i got still feeling that world go around. And something i got balance problem for while. I got 27 inch screen and probably i could afford two lines of guitar "notes", and jumping ball is enough to know where music is now, or moving bar if someone prefer. For most people come here to learn play not play game so "game concept" is not necessary.
I'd very much love to see this. I have some neurological problems that make me dizzy with the scrolling mode now. :(
Provide an option so that the notes and bars do not move across the screen. Instead, have a vertical bar that travels left to right to identify the current position of the music. It is hard on the eyes to have notes flying across the page as you currently have things. Moreover, moving notes...that's not how you read music in the real world. Notes and bars remain static on the page, they don't move across the page.
implement a mode closely resembling real sheet music, similar to GuitarPro. Example - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OiXw6LUwcPE.
Makes sense for large screens only of course, but invaluable to learn to read normal music sheets.
