Tenuto is a collection of 24 highly-customizable exercises designed to enhance your musicality. From recognizing chords on a keyboard to identifying intervals by ear, it has an exercise for you. Tenuto also includes six musical calculators for accidentals, intervals, scales, chords, analysis symbols, and twelve-tone matrices.

Ratings and Reviews
This is an excellent app which can be easily configured for the different ABRSM Music Theory Grades. How about including descending scales in the Scale Identification and Scale Construction features ?
Performance Directions would also be welcome, but then I
suppose the app would look too much like an ABRSM app which may not be what the designers intended
Simple and Brilliant...
Infinite quizzes for essential music learning, including theory, reading and ear recognition. Many apps offer only a small fraction of what this does, and I know of none who make it so smooth, simple and appealing.
An excellently thought out and well presented application with a host of truly musical features end no gimmicks. Excellent value, well done to the developers and thank you.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
