Great straight forward lessons on music theory essentials. Very helpful. Very well organized , very clear, very easy to follow. Excellent.
I am majoring in music ed at my college and this app is so helpful especially that my note taking is horrible. This app is super helpful and highly recommend it for those taking theory in college
... needs to incorporate guitar theory, not just theory demonstrated on the piano board. Where is the Circle of Fifths?
Where’s is the circle of fifths?
The Music Theory website directed me to this app as one of the things for practicing, but there’s nothing for practicing notes, keys, etc. on the app - only explanations. I’m a bit disappointed in it.
What can I say, this app is clean and easy on the eyes. Excellent as reference when you forget things, and as a learning tool the way it moves the explanations with visuals and corresponding sounds is very logical, also makes it easy to understand the lessons.
Literally all that one needs in a very comprehensive package. Only gripe is that it doesn’t allow display of bass clef only treble clef.
I haven’t gotten too much into the app, but after a week into having it - it seems pretty epic. I am rusty and brushing up on music theory.
This app is the best in the store for understanding,y and comprehensively explaining the mechanics and structure of music writing so one can begin understanding sheet music and effectively sight reading piano music. This app saves me huge amounts of "lesson time" and speeds my learning with clear understandable illustrations and very effective drills. Congratulations on a super app.
I didn't get into music theory until I got a guitar on a whim, then I wanted to try to actually learn music as a side thing, and now for the first time I feel like I actually know a little something about music. Only thing I would add to the app is something that you already have on your website (where I learned from, I downloaded the app and it's sister tenuto) is the pop-up piano that helped me figure out scales (I never learned piano so it was easier for me to visualize this way). Otherwise, thanks for you hard work!
Such a good way to learn music theory. Short lessons that teach the basics of theory in an accessible way.
As a music teacher I have used used this app to help explain different aspects of music theory to struggling students. The step by step visualisation on each concept, plus the use of audio has been very helpful.
Great app to teach you some basics of music theory. Have found it has really helped me to revise and learn. What I think would be a great addition though is questions/a quiz, at the end of each category, as well as at the end, referencing all aspects of the app.
With this and the developers other program Tenuto, music is within reach of everyone.
For someone interested in music theory, this is a great launchpad in terms of usability and ease of access.
What the heck is a half step, a whole note? Give us the proper terms that majority of the world uses, not the american dumbed-down terms... Or at least the option to use one or the other. Could be dead easy to implement... Just use an option that replaces particular terms.
I take AP music theory and this is very comprehensive and has a great layout
Very good music theory tutorial. The subject is presented in a clear and concise format. The illustrations are excellent. Don't let the dimmed audio icons confuse you. For lessons that have audio, the audio icon is enabled. I'm not sure why there needs to be a dimmed audio icon at all, but that is a very minor consideration. This is one of the best educational apps I know.
This app is excellent. I am finally starting to understand music theory thanks to this. Their slide show presentation style should be a standard in educational apps. I love the way you can see all comments on a topic at once to be able to move around the topic easily. I hope more music theory apps and content is made by these guys. Would love to expand on knowledge from them. Nice work!
Awesome iOS 7 update! To be honest, I thought this would be one of my last apps to get updated but it's one of the first! I hope they update tenuto as well.
For basic understanding of music theory, this seems to be a great app. However, it is very basic. It doesn't include any of the post romantic theoretic developments. It doesn't include nationality chords. This is a great start for an app, and as I said, for a basic understanding of theory it works very well. In the future id like to see it go Even more in depth.
I can actually use this to teach
Awesome app to teach music theory! Very simple to use. Very clear and straightforward teaching!
Music theory in a simple and well thought out design.
I like this app and it works well with their other app, Tenuto. The only criticism I would have is that it needs more information on it. It should have the different modes of scales (Ionian, Dorian, etc), along with the inversion symbols for seventh chords, etc. It should have all of the stuff Tenuto has but just the theory behind it. Other than that I recommend this app to anyone who wants to improve their theory knowledge! :)
