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.

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.

Always keep handy!

Great app!! Every musician should have this and keep it handy. I use daily when teaching and performing.

Amazingly helpful

I always find myself having to look up terms that I'm sure I knew at one point and this app makes that so easy. The only thing that I've had a problem with is when in reference charts, hitting back takes you back two screens rather than to where you were. Otherwise, pretty much perfect!
