Customer Reviews

Suggestion (5 stars)
Add to the ear training part the simpler task of identifying single notes.

Other than that, great app!

More sound and more gradual exercises? (3 stars)
It would be great if there was an option to have sound during the keyboard note identification exercises, as well as the reverse identification. Perhaps the pitch could be heard when the correct answer is given so that the sound doesn't influence the user's choices. Also it would be great if there was an app that taught staff pitch identification gradually, building from a limited range of pitches and expanding to include the full grand staf

Outstanding (5 stars)
I just wish it could do more.
