User Reviews:

“I survived my first year of music theory with this, and am still constantly using it this year as well. It is nicely customizable and easy to use. There's a lot of material is covers. I absolutely love the ear training. It has been invaluable. Looks nice, too! This is the app to buy for Music Theory class.” – Whitney Huskey

“I love this app. It also has some challenging ear training exercises. I have bought a lot of music theory apps and this one is my favorite for theory” – Hadrian7

Beginners quickly become Pros
Users who are just learning music will be able to practice naming notes on the piano and on the staff.

Sharpen your ears
The ear training section provides many challenges for the more advanced student. It takes a sharp ear to identify altered dominant chords and modal scales quickly. For jazz musicians we’ve included the modes from the melodic minor scale and all kinds of extended chords. There is even a tempo quiz to identify beats per minute by assigning a number to a click track.

Increase your skills by competing with others
Various exercises propel you to higher scores, which you can post to compete for top ratings. Who will be #1 in the world this month? Could be you!

“This app is great. I have gone from having absolutely no knowledge in Music Theory, to doing very well in all of the categories the app offers. Thank you very much for helping me learn Theory finally and making it fun.” – whoisjk

Cool app, but needs a fix

I have used this app on and off for years, and it really is a lot of fun and very useful. However, on my iPhone X, the volume in the intervals and tempo ear training isn’t working properly. The volume doesn’t respond to the controls on the phone, and it is nearly imperceptibly quite... note: if you have this problem on your phone... remember to turn the volume down before you switch to the chord ear training... volume works just great there!!!!

Please fix! I really like this app, and i would love to be able to use it again.

Oh no, had to lower my review again

Please get the leaderboards working again. It would be very fun and would give me higher goals of accuracy and speed to strive for.
The prompt to buy MTPro is annoying. I downloaded the app and it is very boring and obvious to any basically trained musician. I just want to practice my ear training and I want it to go smoothly and uninterrupted. You don’t need to remind me to buy the other frankly lame app. I’m trying to speed test my ear and I’m gonna miss answers. That’s the way it is when you are first learning. I’m probably rambling to nothing though since this App hasn’t been updated in a while, and that’s just another reason to avoid spending money on an app no one wants to improve.

We are working on a major update to fix the audio. In the meantime, make sure your ringer switch is turned on. Sorry for this issue! Working to get it fixed ASAP

Volume and Landscape view

While the app and idea is fantastic, the program does have some upgrades that would improve the program. One the program opens in a landscape view on phone and does not rotate to portrait view. That upgrade would be beneficial just for increased functionality. Second, the volume does come out very low on the phone and can not seem to find a way to improve that.
