Are you bored with practising your scales? ScaleBlitzer will fix that!
For beginner through to advanced musicians on various instruments (see below), ScaleBlitzer makes technical work fun and interesting (instead of boring and tedious)!
Simply enter the scales/arpeggios your teacher sets you for the week, and ScaleBlitzer will ask you to play them in such fun and interesting ways that you won’t want to stop! The self-rating system encourages listening and critical thinking, rather than just playing through.
ScaleBlitzer will keep track of your ratings and test you more on the scales you’re having trouble with. You can also make recordings of your best playing and PROVE to your teacher that you got it right at home!
Your teacher will be super impressed with your progress and you can compare your points tally with your friends at www.scaleblitzer.com
N.B. You will need an internet connection for initial set-up and some functionality, but this app can be used offline.
ScaleBlitzer is currently available for the following instruments/levels:
Piano – Stage 1 (elementary/Grade 1) through to Stage 5 (advanced/Grade 8+)
Flute – Stage 1 (elementary) through to Stage 3 (intermediate/Grade 5)

If you play more than one instrument, you can purchase additional instrument packs for your user account. You can then switch between your packs depending on which instrument you’re practicing. Your statistics will remain separate for each instrument, but your overall points will accumulate for all instruments under your username.
You can create as many users as you like, and all users will have access to any of your purchased packs. Perfect for teachers!

I am so glad I discovered this app and I have to say so are my students. They are practicing well and WILLINGLY! As a teacher I've played with it a bit myself and have picked up many great tips. Highly recommend.
Why does it require a user to have a password? Just awful! Forgot my password already and there's no option allowing you to find out what it is! I'm not storing any money on this app so why have a password? So annoying! Everything these days has a password but honestly do I have to have one to practice my scales? Get rid of the password and I'm sure it's great.
This app is great, I hated scales until I got this.
