Best note teacher, buy the ad-free

This is the best note teaching app. I have tried many. The speed at which it’s presented is great. Has a great look. Tons of settings.

Upgrade to ad-free, it’s worth it.

To the developer, I’d heavily recommend adjusting the default range settings to more usual note ranges (treble and bass), as I know many typical iPhone users won’t have the patience to tweak settings and will be turned off by the initial settings.

Also, the only reason I’m giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the amount of ads was insane, much more than average. It somewhat turned me off from this app initially but $2 is nothing so I bought it and a few others and this one is the best, amazing without the chokingly constant ads. I’d recommend ads for every other practice session instead of every session. The deceptively similar-UI-looking ads on the bottom were quite annoying as well. I know it’s hard to find that right balance of as many ads as possible while not turning customers away from annoyance. So maybe you’ve made the right choice, idk.

Amazing way to learn notes for starters and advanced

This is an amazing app for kids and adults who would like to learn notes. In options you can always change how far your note range is and what clefs you would like. I also like that you don’t have to do treble bass and alto clefs at different times you could choose to do some at the same time. A great thing that they added sound light effects and flats and sharps. For example you could choose not to have sound but if you do it makes the sound of the note and flashes green quickly if you get it right. If you press it incorrect it will flash red quickly and make sort of an errrrr sound. You could also have the choice of flats and sharps if you would like to. Another major thing is that you get scored by accuracy, points, and how many notes you got correct and a chart of your points for that round. When you finish a round and you get something incorrect it will show you a view mistakes button so you could see what you did wrong and get the right answer next time. The last thing is that you could choose fore how long you would like to practice, you would get a choice of one minute, five minutes, ten minutes or infinity. This app for practice is great. Enjoy!

In spite of other reviews

I cannot give this app a good rating. It does not give you a grand staff option so notes are often falling on little lines drawn above or below and it just doesn’t give you a look that you will typically see when you play music. When you press a note, it makes the sound of the next note it would like you to press. This is just horrible for ear training and I’m flabbergasted that they have not fixed this and/or there is not a big outcry from app users. You can remedy this by muting the sound on the app and running a piano app in the background. Also the fact that you cannot do landscape mode is a big hindrance unless you can work through Bluetooth (not sure if that’s possible, but my keyboard cannot do it so it doesn’t matter). So your headphones and lightning adapter make it difficult to keep the iPad steady. To top it all off, it crashes nearly every time you play a round on a iPad 6. I just cannot figure out for the life of me why this gets good ratings. I bought an app that’s half the price that gets everything right except landscape mode. Avoid this. It’s overpriced, poorly implemented and underdeveloped.

Developer Response ,

The issue with the sound of the next note coming when a response is given has been fixed. It was a bug and not the intended behavior. I kindly request you to upgrade to the latest version and try the app again. When you are using the camera adapter with the iPad, you can indeed use the portrait-upside down orientation. Finally, the app provides the features mentioned in the app's description. I am not sure why you would expect a feature that is not mentioned in the app's description (like the grand staff). Music Tutor is a tool that helps beginners with speeding up their sight-reading skills and you have the option to practice different clefs separately - one at a time. I hope you will try the app again and update your review.
