Terrific app. I had piano lessons decades ago. I can play chopsticks, but friends can get a Pepsi while I'm trying to read one bar. I have serious work ahead, & I also want to improve my ear training. I can do them simultaneously by turning the sound on - how great is that? The lessons are in logical order. Both the theory & the exercises are easily understood. I love seeing the correct answer, not just an error message. I also love the library, as I'm beginning to learn modes. Thanks! 🙏🙏🙏

If you're new or rusty, it's a waste of money. The explanations are the absolute bare minimum and the quizzes are incredibly difficult... because you weren't taught almost anything. If and when you get to Sixteenth Notes and Rests, you'll see what I mean. You get two sentences describing the process and then get hit by a quiz that's nothing but questions with 10-12 notes and rests in a single bar. It's not fun or engaging. It's just frustrating. Skip if you're trying to build a daily habit

Excellent way to review the basics fast. Exercises are like music boot camp, and keep track of your times so you always have a goal to shoot for. I've been away from music analysis and writing and this app really is helping me get back to speed efficiently without the tedium of writing it all out. One suggestion I would make would be to allow for answer modification and a submit button, in case someone clicks the wrong answer unintentionally.
