•ScaleTracks covers a wide variety of genres from Baroque to Dubstep;

•ScaleTracks offers you a better understanding of harmony by giving true harmonisations of scales and arpeggios with each track, which in turn opens the door to improvisation and composition;

•ScaleTracks is a great way to prepare for any music exam.

Ratings and Reviews
Woodwind players often have to play scales and arpeggios to the twelfth - it would be amazing if this app was versatile enough to allow this. Otherwise useful as a practice aid for my piano students.
Beautiful sounds and great ear training
Hearing the arpeggios and scales in context makes this app a truly musical experience. Recommended.
Update: Been using this about a month now and my ability to hear the degree and quality of a scale or arpeggio has improved a lot. I often just have it playing as it is fun to listen to. No connection to the developer, just a happy customer.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for this review - watch this space...we will be updating the app over the coming weeks with some exciting new features!
What a wonderful idea this is! This app actually brings fun into learning scales, and with such a big variety of musical styles. I even enjoy practising scales with musical accompaniment in styles that I wouldn’t normally listen to. One thing is certain: introducing the element of joy to scale practice will quickly develop musical prowess. Your speed, accuracy and confidence will rapidly grow by using this app.
