Needs some work

Good concept, but as a true beginner this app is almost impossible to really do well. It's entirely unrealistic to think a novice can assimilate notes and rhythm on a keyboard in real time to get the questions right. Also, there is a significant bug in the quiz for the lesson that teaches steps.

With a few changes this app could be great, but right now it's not worth the money.

Please Update

I would like to see more quizzes for piano. There are plenty of quizzes for the drums, but hardly any for piano. Other than that, this is a good app for learning and practicing. I would love to see more music apps like this one. I need all the help I could get! Thank you.

Really terrible

The gamification is intrusive and makes fun of you for taking too long or for wrong answers. The difficulty progresses too fast, and then the owl makes sad noises at you over and over for struggling with it. I couldn't get past the tutorials for the rhythm interface. Rhythm cat, treble cat, and Musicopouslos are much better apps for learning theory.
