  • 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 !

    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.

    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!
