Learning music theory? Don't go anywhere without this handy music reference from Wolfram—a world leader in technical software! Are you taking a basic course in music theory, just starting out in band, or learning an instrument? Now you can learn about notes, intervals, scales, and chords and even hear what they sound like!

- Hear and view accidentals and octaves anywhere on the staff.
- Choose from both common scales and hundreds of more advanced scales.
- Explore triads and basic major, minor, and seventh chords.
- Input up to four chords and hear their progression.
- Learn how to identify music intervals by their name and what they sound like.
- Find interval inversions for every interval type.
- Reference musical terms like "andantino" and "solfa" in the abbreviated music dictionary.

The Wolfram Music Theory Course Assistant is powered by the Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine and is created by Wolfram Research, makers of Mathematica—the world's leading software system for mathematical research and education.

The Wolfram Music Theory Course Assistant draws on the computational power of Wolfram|Alpha's supercomputers over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.

An App Without a Purpose


I suppose if I had a school project where I needed to 'compute' an interval or a triad or a chord, and I never saw a piece of sheet music before, this App might work. For anything else it is too busy 'computing things' to be of any value. It's slow and a kludge. I want to learn intervals for choral singing. I want to choose a key, play two notes and have the program tell me what that interval is. Obviously, not this app.



Menus are cumbersome and app performance is slow. Overall UI is clunky. The app contains very little data, so it's constantly downloading info and "computing".

It's a solid idea, just poorly executed.

Wolfram Music Theory


This software company really requires to figure things out.

1) content to be offline availble
2) Cord progression does not show keys and should
3) Idea is nice but, absolutely consumes lots of data usage.

More comments would follow as I just bought it to see and review it.
