Indispensable App for those who want to learn theory!
I think the best way to review this app is to paste a copy of the email I sent to the developers:
"Greetings and thank you for producing a very usable app that is managing to do for me what no music teacher could - understand music theory! I've been on the cusp of understanding before but never managed to break through. Am I there yet? I don't know but one thing is for certain. I FINALLY understand the circle of 4ths & 5ths! I was able to "get it" going forward but it never made sense going around the circle in the other direction and no one has been able to explain it to me until this app! Seems ridiculous but that is the reality of it. I need to understand both sides of something to get it. I'm sure the fault lies with me but that has been my learning dilemma. So needless to say your app has had a profound effect on my understanding of theory. btw, I've been a musician for over 30 years. So a heart felt "thank you" and kudos for an excellent app!"
As you can read in my email this app has made it possible for me to go where no teacher could take me. It is very straight forward and very clear in its explanation. The theory sections have corresponding practice sessions so you can work the ideas into understanding. The language is concise with no waste or fluff. These folks know what they are doing! If you are interested in learning theory then you have come to the right place. It was for me, anyway!
The best way the learn the basics
Before Musicopoulos, I'd never spent a single penny on an app, and I gotta say: money well spent. If you are like me and really interested in learning this stuff on your own, than I strongly encourage you to purchase this app. Personally, I took a Coursera class on music theory that got really convoluted after awhile. Not only did I hardly learn anything, but I believed it was too hard for me to understand so I gave up. With this app, however, I'm learning so much more than I ever did taking the online class. They explain the theory in easy-to-understand terms, and give you follow-up practice exercises in which you have to answer a certain number of them right before you can advance to the more challenging levels of which there are three for every theory (beg/interm/adv). They break the subject matter up into 5 parts, each with their own set of subcategories. Neat and tidy and certainly manageable. You go at your own pace, whenever you find a spare moment to yourself and need a dose of mental stimulation as I often do. Learning keeps your brain young and sharp, too--an added bonus, if you're into that sort of thing. All in all, I'm thoroughly pleased, enough so that I've written this here review. Hope this helps!
I am a grandma who decided to 1. Take piano lessons ( am working on the 2nd movement of Moonlight Sonata) and 2. Learn to play using chords on the left hand ( ie " fake" playing lol). Enter music theory to learn just what is a chord. How does one know D major has 2 sharps? It all sounded overwhelming!
This app begins with intervals, explains it quite well, then tests the knowledge with a keyboard on the app. It thoroughly explained the circle of fifths, and the circle of fourths...then thoroughly tested it using the circle and the key board built into the app. I had always heard people talk about the circle of fifths but it just seemed too hard to grasp. I get it!! (Happy dance!)
I can now tell you every key signature, and its not just rote memorization- I really get it! Can't wait to begin the next chapter- but took a break to extol this app! I just absolutely love the interactive approach- I just wish it had some games on it!
