Customer Reviews

Well done.

The theory lessons are spot-on: I think it could have spent a little more time on basic chord construction before leaping into modes, where it starts getting tricky very fast, but maybe that’s just my own weaknesses speaking. At any rate, for less than a latte at Starbucks, I got some tight lessons that gave me the basic vocabulary to get more help from other musicians as well as make sense of music theory articles on Wikipedia. Certainly less than a course at a community college, to say nothing of private lessons.

Very Effective

As a person who has taken music theory before in college, I think this app effectively teaches enough of the basics of music theory. It can get a little complicated I think to those who don't know music theory before, but its great as a follow up for me because Im using this as a resource to teach music theory, myself.

You don't need music theory to play an instrument, but if you want to go far in learning you'll definitely need to learn some music theory and this app helps do the job!

Finally got the motivation to learn music theory

This app has finally made learning music theory easy enough for me to be consistent and make progress. I am so grateful for it!

The app is fluid and intuitive as well as feature rich. It is obvious that the developer(s) put a lot of thought and effort into it.
