Customer Reviews

Needs a few things...

I'd first like to express my gratitude for all the hard work and time spent in the creation of these tools and tests for the betterment of musicians everywhere. The variety of options have offered me the best possible training all with conveniency of portability. Fantastic set up. Virtually bug-free. It's a truly pragmatic and gratifying experience.

I have no complaints for the already established content. However, I believe that I and many others would benefit from tests pertaining to rhythm. All we have are tests regarding pitch, harmony, dictation — all great — but I have seen musicians frustratingly struggle with fluency in reading rhythms (maybe we could tap on the screen), rhythmic independence (tapping two or more rhythms at once), and rhythmic dictation (especially) over 2/2, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 6/8, 9/8, 12/8, etc. time (not excluding 5/4, 7/8, 10/8, and other more abstract/contemporary time signatures).

Again, I praise all your hard work, as many do. But adding these practical and essential elements would be invaluably beneficial, indeed.

If I may, I'd like to suggest a melodic dictation test — where we can train our ears to hear different notes of minor keys (or perhaps modes?) as well as major with the notes played in succession — and a chord progression dictation test (I cannot tell you how much I need this).

I whole-heartedly thank you for such a great app!

Helps my students

This is a wonderful app and between it and the web site features, my students are really advancing with their music theory skills.

I’m so glad you fixed the vibraphone explosion problem in the last update. I’m not sure my neighbors could take one more lesson. :)

So great to have it!!

If you are a music student, you must to have it!! It's easier and quicker to use on the app, and it runs smoothly. So great to have it, so I don't have to turn on my laptop to use those exercises.
