Perfect app for my jazz training..
This app is amazing (fundamentals). I was looking for different ear training apps and came across this app. I was stunned as this was everything I wanted and a TON more. The jam a long tracks are awesome. I immediately took a chance and purchased it and am glad I did. I'll be getting the ii-V version next.
Im thinking the reviewer who stated that the app had the wrong key didn't realize that you could change the key of the app to the key of your instrument in the settings. I'm playing an alto so I changed mine from C to Eb...
comprehensive and practical
It's hard to believe the little app does provide such comprehensive and practical info for self-learn beginners. "Note to Chord Relationships" is the best part of the app.
Thanks for the prompt update; I'll be downloading all of your other iImprov apps now- and recommending them to my students, as well.
