Music Theory meets Improvisation!
Basic concepts such as letter names of the keys and how to build intervals and triads are covered step by step. Our "smart" internal keyboard will walk you through writing short compositions that can be recorded directly on your iPad with or without backing drums.
Appropriate for complete beginners and also for experienced pianists interested in learning to play chord symbols. Learn to read chord symbols and how to improvise on piano by composing and recording your own music in simple 5 minute sessions.
Immediately after a short tutorial the user is prompted to compose a song using the newly learned element. The benefits of making creative decisions in the way include: ear-training, improvisation, and rhythmic integration.
The ultimate goal of each lesson is to record the song created. The playback feature allows users to evaluate their performance and retake if desired. Drum loops of various speeds add musical direction to the performance.
Music is best enjoyed when shared with friends! Each recorded song is stored locally on the device, but users can seamlessly share their creations on Facebook.
First and Second Inversions of Major Triads have been added to our lessons. And the tutorial video is more accessible.
