Ratings and Reviews
Pragmatic & Simple
Works. Gives you a way to test and learn that even a beginner can dive into.
Recommended improvements - flash the chord played with the answer ideally using marcotone's associative colour wheel giving each frequency in the octave it's own colour. Also, just because the middle is wrong or not answered yet, don't count the last wrong. The middle is the hardest to isolate. But telling then the next is wrong too is in my opinion a bad idea - perfect pitch is difficult, so focus on what people get right when possible to not discourage users.
Good app training my ears
Never got any formal music training. I had a hard time to 'feel' music. This app really helps.
would be great... if...
This would be a spectacular tool if one thing were added and one changed:
- First, the constant reordering of answer buttons is both meaningless and irritating. It's not a coordination game. Adds a level of completely wasteful frustration.
- Second, the ability to lock the exercise into a specific harmonic context. I really don't get why everyone misses on this one. Tonal music, which is the point here, is neither played nor heard as random splatters of chord varieties. The point of all this is the relationships between chords and voicing WITHIN A TONAL/HARMONIC CONTEXT. Training outside that context slows learning and decreases useful (musical) results. Why is that so hard to understand?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
