I came across this nice site on the internet.
http://www.musictheory.net/ by Ricci Adams
This is a site that gives free lessons and exercises to improve your music foundation.
The lessons are animated to effectively illustrate music concepts.
The music recognition exercises included a huge list of areas that can improve note identification, key signature identification, interval identification, chord identification and many more.
I always had problems reading notes especially those notated outside the range of the staff. I went through the note recognition training where I had to identify the note notated on the treble clef. It shows how many times I've missed and my percentage of accuracy. After going at it for a while, I actually felt more confident identifying the correct notes! It's pretty fun, and it actually works!
The tools section has a collection of very useful tools, from determining the tempo by tapping on a button, to utilities that list out the major and minor keys by number of accidentals.
"Tenuto", available in the Apple App Store.
