Love the app but could use a few upgrades

While I love this app, it could use a few upgrades. But let’s start of with the good stuff. This app is awesome. It teaches you how to play so many new songs and teaches you rytheim. But here’s the truth.

It isn’t as good as it good be. The metronome glitches and can make this annoying high pitch squeal. And second it starts you off playing songs and your like “wait what?” It doesn’t have in introduction on what to do. Also it could really use a fingering chart. I play the Tenor Saxophone and I just started. I got this app in hopes that I could get a boost on learning since I started late. But almost all of the notes I have to go and search up the fingering. But over all it’s a good app and I hope others like me will be able to learn from this app.

Please, please, pleease add a fingering chart. Thanks.

As I said a good app, just a few problems. 👍🏻

Ran out of lessons

I loved this app from the start and paid for a subscription. I’m new to sax but have a music background and enjoyed how it would introduce each note or concept and reinforce with lessons. But I was disappointed that the lessons ran out after only 12 notes. I’ve played some songs and done some challenges, but I expected it to teach more notes.
The app has plenty of potential for improvements. The tuner is excellent and should be available from more screens, great for practicing long tones. A reference fingering chart would be nice.
There is a major annoyance where there’s no bookmark for your lesson progress so you have to scroll down pages to get to where you were.
I’m looking forward to seeing more improvements.

This app is exciting me!

As an adult beginner sax player, I was elated to find this app. I’ve only just begun and can tell how much it will help me to remember the skills I had playing the clarinet in middle school and translating it to learning to play sax. Cant wait!
