Great app for fun and classroom

Fun to play and also useful in the classroom. I used it with Y9 when studying minimalism so students can practise at home before trying this in pairs in class.

So good!

My teacher recommended this to me and it is really good for hearing the piece clapping music. The practise mode is good, as are the different speeds, but it’s one of those apps you get and (unless you are trying to learn the piece), you only use it for a little bit and then get bored. Although, I love the little challenges the university sets you... I never win them but it is still fun!

Fantastic AP

This is a very challenging yet rewarding AP based on the music of a man I’ve admired for years.
