Ratings and Reviews
Beginner NOT! Advanced GREAT!
OK, so I am an elementary school teacher of general music. I was looking for an app that I could use in my classroom. This is NOT it! Great for adult and/or accomplished musician to practice sight reading rhythms, but to get to the level I needed I had to limit the program to 4 beats since that is where we start out, and this program doesn't have bar lines. It displays continually generated rhythms that don't fit into 4 beat patterns, nor does it display bar lines!!! Summary: great for advanced students, but not what I need as an elementary school music specialist.
A unique trainer
Finally! A rhythm trainer that works both your hands. This app is great for piano players and students practicing their rhythm sight reading. Other apps just make you tap with one finger.
Not worth five bucks
This app does not create realistic rhythms like you would find in an actual piece of music. One the more difficult parts of reading rhythms are ties, where the notation spans across bars. Ties and bars aren't included.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
