Pretty good - could be better

You can set min/max note and good for practicing notes alongside my sight reading for guitarists book. Could be improved with ability to show treble & bass on screen at the same time (for piano, etc) instead of confusingly switching from one to the other. Also be nice if they fixed the bug that means the previous run’s last note stays shown before the first of the current run is shown, as sometime you’re too quick and get a “wrong note” inaccuracy which knocks your max possible score down. Also it would be great if it could produce a few bars of random notes (within note limits set and show treble or bass & treble, etc) so you can practice at the piano or guitar - doesn’t need to recognise the notes and mark you - but if it could that would be even better.

I think that this is a great app because it’s very useful in the way it has more than just the bass and treble clefs. I also find it helpful when you get a note wrong it tells you and then and the end of the session you get a score because then you can use it to improve your speed. My only criticism is that it’s a bit repetitive in that there isn’t a great range of activities included in the app.


Nice App with Great Support

Music Tutor is exactly what I was looking for when it comes to learning to read music. But I really bought this for my 7 year old daughter, who loves it too — and her note recognition is coming on in leaps & bounds.

Support from the developer was also excellent when I had a problem installing Music Tutor on my daughters iPad — problem solved in less than 2 hours. Tip: If you’re planning to use family sharing to install this on another persons device don’t buy the in-app purchase, instead buy Music Tutor Plus 👍🏻
