Fliss ,

Great idea!

Brilliant idea, could do with a how to use guide for less confident maybe. Also, where are the piano and keyboard scales?! I need those too!!!

Better Than I Expected

I was skeptical about using an app to practice music, but it turns out to be a good experience. It gives feedback immediately, and keep records on my performance, so that i know which scales i need to focus on more

😡😠😭😔 ,

Good idea

I got this so that I could practise my piano scales and do a mock exam. However, there is not a piano option which will disappoint many people. Also it is rather expensive at £6 a month just to get feedback. If there was a piano option then perhaps I'd give this 4 or 5 stars depending on how the month went and whether it was worth the money.
