  • Great for self taught Nov 10, 2019

    By Vndhhggfvegnfgdbisvcv
    I am a 12 year old kid, and I play guitar and trumpet and I wanted to start composing. The one problem is I am a seventh grader and they don’t teach music theory to us I band and I want to understand the structure of what I am playing in my schools jazz band. I couldn’t find anything on how to use chords and circle of fifths and music theory stuff online that I understood but since I got this app I started to understand chord progressions and how to play in different keys. I now hope to write songs and solos with my musical friends, I thank this app for existing and helping me as a young musician and helping my musical future.

    This app is really thorough. There is _SO_ much here (hear). I love it. I really do. I know a lot about reading music, but the ear training is something new to me. Thus far, it is all I have done in the app, and there are literally hundreds of lessons/exercises. I haven't even tried to customize them (which is an option). I have been livestreaming my sessions consistently for a couple of weeks now. There is a achievement tracker, and tons of other things to help you to master the things that myriad of topics and lessons included in the app. I get really excited when it is time for me to learn. I feel like I am becoming a more competent musician, student, and teacher whenever I use this program. It blows me away. Now with all those accolades I have displayed, there is a minor annoyance in the interval comparison area. When it says something like: "Exam #1: Any direction • no common tone" the no common tone is not always true. I think that the randomizer does not rule out the other tones being tested. So, fairly regularly you will end up with two sets of tones that share a tone (or have a tone in common). With that being said, this is the most comprehensive music theory/music training app I have come across to date. Thank you very much for the time, attention, and expertise that has been assembled in creating this program.

    I love that I have access to so many categories. This app gives you lessons on Ascending and descending notes, identifying triads, chords, and various intervals by ear. I do wish there was more explanation as to how to notate different intervals. There’s not much info before you start the lesson. I’ve had some education, so the sections I’ve gone through have been easy enough to figure out. However, when I start getting into unknown territory, I have a feeling it’s going to be guessing games to understand the lessons. The other thing that could improve the app is identification of number tones in the scale... Ex. The app plays a scale and asks you to identify the root note. There are a few holes, but overall, it does what it says it does!

    That's truly an amazing app, the exercises are great ! But I really really wish there was an option in the rhythm exercises where you could disable the "progress bar" or whatever you wanna call it that highlights the note when it's time to play it, because it makes it too easy and you tend to focus on it, even unconsciously and in the end it trains your eyes more than your ear which is a shame Note to the devs : If you fix that I will be forever grateful ;) (And I'll give you 5 stars)

    Update (6/24): Love all the existing features and really looking forward to the fretboard trainer! This is quickly turning into one of my favorite apps ever. Original: I’ve been looking for an app like this for a while now. Was never really fully happy with any of the other apps as I felt that they lacked all the types of exercises that I was looking for. Keep up the great work. :)

  • Interval singing: great idea in theory ... Oct 27, 2020

    By Irlandesaaa
    But in practice, the app was really buggy in this mode. More than half the time the app would answer the question before I had even made a sound, and tell me that I had gotten the question wrong. Also, on a number of the questions where the app did function correctly, in that it”heard” me and identified what note I sang, it would use the incorrect enharmonic equivalent of the desired note, i.e. after asking me to sing a minor third above B-flat, identifying the pitch I sang as a C-sharp instead of the D-flat that would have been correct. I was looking for something to use with my high school students, but it’s hard enough helping them to understand spelling intervals… This app could potentially confuse them more, unfortunately.

    Great concept and info is well written, but the theory exercises are unfathomable in terms of user friendliness. your choice of answers are "first" or "second".... of what?! there's no other info! without improvement of this, this area of the app is basically unusable.

  • Great potential Dec 17, 2020

    By Voice Science
    This app has some fantastic functionality which gives it great potential as a learning tool. But it really needs someone with advanced training in music theory, singing, and education to work on the actual content. I unfortunately can’t recommend this to my voice or theory students until the errors and omissions are fixed!

  • Tapping Aug 9, 2020

    By MassGTess
    The tapping back is VERY CONFUSING!!! Is there a way for you, the developer, to make it clear where or when one is supposed to match the rhythm?? Totally weird the way you have it; also, I bought the upgrade and I can’t access certain features which were supposed to be included. Help?

  • One of the greatest music education apps available Mar 12, 2020

    By Willowsax
    This app covers a broad range of music education needs including singing with pitch accuracy feedback, tapping rhythms while reading them with accuracy feedback. This is an absolute bargain for the value it offers. You can use this alone or a teacher could use it with students. I love this app

    Great way to learn how to read notes, discern rhythm, intervals, keys, etc. Basic app is free and the full version is I think 2 or 3 dollars. Definitely worth the price and then some. Use it every day, even for just 10 minutes and you will be amazed at how quick you will learn music.

    Love this app! Great way to learn music theory! I just think that recognizing the pitch if your voice is extremely strict. I think a great addition would be to be able to play the actual piano itself to hel with irl theory. It gives you a score in accuracy and there are no ads! I have recommended this app to all of my choir peeps and I definitely recommend it for you!

    Some features are excellent, others need tweaking — personally I'd like to hear cadences before chord progressions, and for 'interval comparison' mode to test you on intervals that differ by more than a minor 2nd. Also, the 'interval singing' mode doesn't take into account natural vibrato — it grades your answer based on the exact pitch you were singing when the timer runs out — a better way to do it would be to take an average across the time interval and use that as the answer.

    Awesome app. Very relevant and helpful for ear tuning. I gave 4 stars because I can't add a card to purchase the full upgrade. I am finding it difficult to pay for the upgrade now.

    It looks really in-depth and like a lot of work went into presenting the material to you in a way to integrate you into a master. I just wish the education sections had a read-aloud option/a narrator. I learn best hearing. If they add an option for an auto-reader to narrate, I'll really start with the app.

    It does seem to work like you think. However, for harmonic exercises it is extremely biased towards giving you high notes at the top of the vocal range.
