Great app

I lobe this app for my band students. It has everything they need to use in and out of class. My only complaint is the soprano recorder fingerings are not right or they are not showing the correct fingerings. I’d love for that to be fixed so that my 2nd and 3rd grade can use it as well.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for the review!

Version 2.0 will be released soon. I’ll be sure to fix the recorder fingerings!

I am always eager for feedback—especially from band directors. Please email contact@instrument.bible for any future feedback or to join the beta test list. 😃

Great app!

This app is a wonderful collection of instrument information and resources. It’s awesome to be able to learn just about any instrument all in one place. And it has a built in metronome and tuner!

I can 100% see this being used in my band room but not yet....

Complaints

-iPad interface for brass instrument is horrible. All UIs are not seen. Using IPad Pro 11

-ability to hide UI. To many unnecessary things for younger students. I don’t need the piano, metronome, or recording showing all the time. I just want to see the fingering chart

-ability to show sharps and flats at the same time, instead of having to choose which one.

-I have to end the app many times to reset everything. Sometimes the sound stops working or the midi freezes up. Would get really annoying in the classroom setting

Ability to see more then one note with midi files would be a game changer. (Like a line of music) Right now it’s a good fingering chart but will not help you learn to read music fluently. Which is super important in learning to play an instrument. (Which is what they are marketing it as. )

**Ps fantastic feedback service. This app is in the early stages can’t wait to see where it goes!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the review! We are working on an update that will solve some of these problems.

v1.2 will be released in the next few days, and will fix many of these issues, including:
- hide/show the piano
- fixed brass UI layout
- more stable MIDI player

If you are interested in providing more detailed feedback, or joining the beta test group for new releases, please email contact@instrumentbible.com. I am always eager for feedback—especially from band directors.
