SmartMusic http://www.smartmusic.com/ can evaluate performance in real-time, not only of many instrumental scores and sight-singing materials in their library but also of any custom examples you wish to create using Finale.  New developments in the sight-singing interface have made its assessment of vocal input excellent.  The notation of a sight-singing melody, originally displayed in black, is marked immediately following a student's performance— correct notes are displayed in green and errors (both pitch and rhythm) in red.

Dear list,
Given the current state of music games such as Guitar Hero, Garage Band
and others which incorporate real-pitch detection and evaluation from microphone
input, I was wondering if similar functionality can be found in music instruction
softwares. What I am looking for is real-time graphic feedback based on expected
pitches from a monophonic MIDI file (is, a simple sight-singing exercise).
Thanks in advance,
