All-in-one music teaching app

This app has everything a music teacher needs to get their students recognising notes and rhythms, for every ability level.

The word randomiser is perfect for helping beginner students to explore their instrument and introduce them to musical notes. Then the note randomiser can be quite a challenge for higher ability students and really can test sight reading abilities. As a singer myself, having the power to tap any note and hear it played back is exactly what I need for my students lessons and my own practice.

I cannot recommend this app enough - it saves so much time in lessons and will transform your teaching!

Excellent, versatile music teaching App

I've been using this app ever since it came out and am lost without it. My students are so engaged and request to use it every week. Each category delivers a variety of exercises to cater for different levels. Not only is this app great for piano but it is also excellent for anyone studying music theory. The playback feature is also great for singers who are looking to improve their pitch and theory skills. Definitely recommend to both piano and singing students as well as teachers!

Great app for music teachers!

This is a really useful teaching aid for music teachers. The app design is great and the layout is visually appealing.

I have used this app as a piano teacher to help improve my students reading ability as well as their understanding of scales and rhythms.

In particular I find the 'Interval Randomiser' activity to be an innovative new way of improving my piano students ability to sight read well, and can help get them away from reading simply the 'finger numbers' and onto reading music!

Highly recommend.
