User Reviews

I'm a piano teacher of 15 years and have more and more students who want to play chords and improvise. This app is a perfect resource for them. I like it because it's thorough but at the same time very simple.

I am new to piano, familiar with some scales, and chord progressions but this app will really help me to understand and explore various combinations. I pair this app with additional learning material online to help me fully understand the math / science behind the music.

This app is great for understanding scales, chords, chord progressions, and the circle if fifths. I like the easy to use interface. It only includes common scales and chords. I have another app that has tons of complicated and confusing scales that I've never heard of much less can pronounce. I just wanted something to show me the common scales and chords, and this app does it. It also sounds the chord or scale.

Life saver in rehearsals

Even after years of playing I struggle to remember every chord and their inversions. This with the full chord set sits on the side of my keys and is a constant companion.

Equally useful is the reverse feature. I play blues and some chords from muscle memory. Is great to be able to spell them out so I can tell the horns and guitars what I’m playing.

I’m theory trained so could do this the hard way but this is sooo much easier. A superb tool.

Best Music Ap I’ve Come Across In Years

Thank you to whoever designed this ap, it’s made learning the language of music far easier than all other apps I’ve seen to date.

Brilliant, clear and perfect to follow, thanks again.

Music to my eyes and ears.

wow ayrtone ,


It was very very good with this awesome app but it would be better if it could hear the sounds from my piano and help me along.
