MusicTools is a set of tools designed for music students, amateur, and professional musicians. This initial release contains a comprehensive music dictionary and a set of useful quick reference charts. MusicTools contains thousands of definitions, abbreviations and performance notations used in music from the 18th century through the present day. Future versions will contain additional tools to assist all levels of musicians with rehearsal and performance.

This version features an extremely fast, easy-to-use dictionary search engine and an intuitive set of charts allows for quick use during lessons, practice sessions, and rehearsals. English, German, Latin, Italian and French variations of words and pronunciations are also provided. Musicians who play from older manuscripts will find MusicTools especially helpful in identifying older notations and abbreviations no longer listed in modern dictionaries.

Always keep handy!


Great app!! Every musician should have this and keep it handy. I use daily when teaching and performing.

Amazingly helpful

An Anonymous Someone

I always find myself having to look up terms that I'm sure I knew at one point and this app makes that so easy. The only thing that I've had a problem with is when in reference charts, hitting back takes you back two screens rather than to where you were. Otherwise, pretty much perfect!

What a great resource!


I'm a music teacher and I need exact definitions for terms very regularly in order to plan my lessons and this app has quite quickly replaced my pocket dictionary other than the very specific things.

Thank you!
