Music Flash Class

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Music Flash Class is a highly customizable flash card application designed and used by a professional piano teacher. You can use it in individual lessons, home study, or in group classes with the built-in games or with games led by you. Because you know how you want to teach or how your students learn best, you can tailor the app to exactly what you want:
• You define the notes on the grand staff that you want your student to drill.
• You decide if the application should test or teach.
• You decide how many cards to drill, how long to test, and how quickly students must answer.
• You decide whether to drill in letter names, solfège, piano keyboard, and several other options.
• You can review the incorrect notes and save them for student drilling.
Music Flash Class is designed for use with all ages:
• You can lock the device’s orientation to accommodate each student’s way of holding the device.
• You can discourage accidental disruption of the games by 'locking' buttons that would normally exit the play.
• You can use built in games or design challenges for your students.
"I love the app....my students are competing against each other for time and decks completed without error!!!" - Penny L., professional piano teacher
"This app has become a favorite backseat activity in my van. My kids love playing 'Hot Potato' with it." Jodi M., parent of two piano students
Uses of Music Flash Class:
• Effortlessly pull up and drill whatever deck of notes you want during your lessons.
• Students who are waiting for their lesson can practice or test their note recognition skills.
• Practice on your own, focusing on notes that have been difficult to learn.
• Assign drilling exercises to those students who have access to an iPod Touch or iPhone.
• Use in group classes for group drilling or games.
• Design challenges that students can compete to attain.
What's New in Version 1.2
To everybody who upgraded to iOS 8 and had this app stop working, thank you for your patience and encouragement!
- New Universal App
- Interface reworked to be compatible with iOS 8 and device independent
- iOS 7.1+ compatible
Outstanding app, great update
Outstanding app that has turned note drilling into an activity my students actually request! The hot potato mode is a class favorite and the app's customizability makes it superior to any alternatives I have found on the App Store. I appreciate the developer's responsiveness, and am very happy to see an update featuring full iOS 8 and native iPad compatibility.
Great Note Name Helper!
This app is the best current way to review note names as with Flash Cards. There are many options for levels of difficulty to choose from. My husband and I teach piano ane recommend this app to all students, especially those needing to better their note recognition. 🎶
