Play ‘n’ Practice is a music instrument journal to manage your repertoire and track your music instrument practice.
While offering all required information about the current practice session, Play ‘n’ Practice has been designed for a non-intrusive user experience during your instrument practice.
The management of even complex repertoires is supported by offering several criteria for grouping work by playlists, genre, level and status.
Structured workouts aims to raise the effectiveness of even the shortest practice session by automatically selecting pieces you didn’t play for a long time, scales and arpeggios, individual playlists and more. Finally the diary and statistics supports reviewing your progress, tracking your practice and experience and continuously improving your skills.

Ratings and Reviews
Keeps me motivated!
My son, who is a much better pianist than I am, recommended this program and I’ve been using it for a short time now.
I used to be a serious pianist but in my aging years (I’m almost 80 years old), I’ve neglected my serious routine practice and some pieces that I used to play very well, I’m surprised that when I get them out I can barely read them!
Playnpractice is getting me back on track. Slowly I’m adding to my repertoire and I expect that at some point I will have, if not all, at least most of the pieces that I would like to play again. Now I can look back and check what I have practiced and for how long, and notice if there has been some progress... or not!
I’m still getting used to the program and some things I don’t know how to do or if it’s possible to do them. But I like the program and it’s helping tremendously to keep me motivated. Thanks!
Crashes too much
Just bought pro version but app keeps crashing and interrupting logging. Also didn’t save a bunch of items I selected to add to repertoire. Crashed and lost all my selections. Don’t mind the user interface but the frequent crashing is a serious issue.
Developer Response ,
thank you for your feedback. I'd like to investigate further into the issues you had with the app. As I'm using it by myself daily, I would really be interested into fixing these issues. Could you pls. provide me a more detailed error description on what you did right before the app was crashing. I'll be happy to provide a fix as soon as possible. You could send the description to email@example.com.
Thank you in advance!
