Rivcakor ,

Great material but chords too fast!

This app is a great way to practice grade 8 aural and my skills have definitely improved. However, the example chords for cadences and modulations are played far too quickly, so you really have to know your stuff. Also, the woman really criticises you when you get it wrong: “do not skip the note, or marks will be deducted seriously.” Ouch!
