  • Just info no interaction

    By Famwith3
    This app is just information. I am looking for something for my tweets to practice theory. This is not it.
  • Well translated !

    By Mad Thrasher
    Very well translated. couldn't be more clarified!
  • Wow Just "WOW"

    By Fluffyduffydo
    Never knew how easy it was to learn until I got this app. Everything is put plain as day in front of you and everything is there for you if you need to return and relearn anything. Easy and quick!!! Love this app! Music made easy!
  • Woah

    By Jzo18
    Gonna be honest this app, in addition to the website, taught me all the music theory I know and it was made so simple and easy. Thank you for making it easy for beginner musicians to learn this. I hope you guys add more stuff soon though.
  • Excellent

    By bentford
    Love this app. A cheap way to learn the fundamentals of music theory.
  • Amended - Audio doesn't work

    By TheOnePutter
    Audio DOES work. Only available on some slides. Developer can stop negative reviews by making it more clear that audio isn't available on all slides. (Old Review: Installed on 6+. Audio grayed out. What's the point if there's no audio?)
  • Outstanding job! One tweak.

    By Hi9087654321
    I am truly amazed by the quality of this app. Well worth the money. I have learned so much here and I feel as though I can really take music to the next level. I have one suggestion, however. It is tough to retain all of this knowledge without having a good way to practice some of these lessons. I understand that there is a sister app, Tenuto? I would be one hundred percent more satisfied if you released an update for this app or Tenuto that included exercises identifying chord progressions, practicing things like the more complicated triads and such; the vocabulary is very hard to retain despite how well the lessons were put together. Thank you for your hard work!
  • Audio Doesn't Work

    By theflyingnun
    I just downloaded this app onto my iPad Air 2, but audio controls are greyed out and unavailable.
  • Finally got the motivation to learn music theory

    By Praise_the_sun!
    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.
  • Great intro to theory!

    By Gary Fellows
    Beautiful minimalist animation accompanies equally minimal but surgically precise explanation of the fundamentals of music theory. I learned a bit 30 years ago. This brought it back and put me ahead many paces in about three days. Great reference source, too!

  • Makes learning music theory enjoyable and fun

    By SongbirdHaven
    As a total beginner this app makes learning music theory easy and fun. I never thought I would grasp music theory this easily. If you're looking for an enjoyable way to learn music theory this app is it. I highly recommend this app.
