Good form and function!  nerdgirlatlarge  5 star

I enjoy playing piano and love how this app is able to help me expand my ability to write my own music. I am also a total nerd when it comes to visuals and love that this app is really pretty while being useful.


Very useful!  peewakawaka  5 star

Great app for musicians of all skill levels! I've been playing piano for a few years and this app is helping me practice my scales and understand basic music theory. I can even add my own scale fingerings! The identify chords feature was extremely useful. Would highly recommend this app to anyone passionate about music and seeking to learn more.
