“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

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!

We listened to your feedback. The prompt to buy MTProf only happens rarely (just don't miss three answers!)
Ratings and Reviews
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.
Developer Response ,
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
Great but a bit easy
I started using this app to help with my music theory but after a few weeks it started being repetitive and I didn’t even need to think on what the answer was. It helped me so much but sooner or later I won’t be progressing quickly and in the it will be the app I end up using but it is not helping me.
