  • Practice?

    By galaxykennie
    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.
  • Solid foundation

    By doormang
    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.
  • Almost perfect.

    By Verstft
    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.
  • Solid app

    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.
  • Best app in store for beginner

    By mecarboy
    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.
  • Amazing! Just one thing to add

    By Clikeer
    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!
  • Great way to start!

    By StalinMcPutin
    This app is a great kickstart into music theory! I've used this for a couple weeks and I've already have improved in my musicianship and overall understanding. Thanks for this great app!!
  • Tired Of Confusing Theory Books? Buy this.

    By :Amy:
    Clear and precise music theory explanations. Music Theory has always confused me, but this app's visual design/animation is very helpful along with the material presented. Buy this $3 dollar app! No need to pay for tons of theory books.
  • 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 !
