MusicTools is a set of tools designed for music students, amateur, and professional musicians. This initial release contains a comprehensive music dictionary and a set of useful quick reference charts. MusicTools contains thousands of definitions, abbreviations and performance notations used in music from the 18th century through the present day. Future versions will contain additional tools to assist all levels of musicians with rehearsal and performance.

This version features an extremely fast, easy-to-use dictionary search engine and an intuitive set of charts allows for quick use during lessons, practice sessions, and rehearsals. English, German, Latin, Italian and French variations of words and pronunciations are also provided.

Good, but the search engine could use some upgrades

Not all the words in the dictionary come up by entering the word. For example più does not appear unless you know to add the accent. Meno won’t appear; you have to stop at men , then scroll down through the filtered list. But then you can’t get rid of the keyboard so you can scroll to the bottom of the filtered list.

Useful; some minor issues

Hitting 'back' in Reference sends you back two pages instead of one. It also needs a list of time signatures rather than just a listing of types. Otherwise, it's pretty nice.

Touching story. ,

Very helpful

I am not very music trained. I find the definitions very helpful. Thanks so much for this app, which I always have available on my iPhone.
