Learn to read music and get smart video feedback on your playing - you will improve EVERY time you practice!

150 Pre-Planned practice sessions - get through 2 years in 1!

30 Levels with 5 days per level. We focus on the elements of music practice that lead to real improvement over time.

Gamified long tones make the warm-up fun! Clap rhythms, play tunes on one note, educationally sound teaching practices with videos to help guide the way!

Support for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba. PERCUSSION COMING SOON!

We KNOW kids will improve when they warm up well, and when they do the right things in their practice. If they go too fast, they won’t score well, and slow it down to a 4-star tempo. Only THEN will they speed it up as they go. We teach practice techniques through our technology.  

We offer exercises helping students learn lots of concepts:
>Long Tones with animations - blow up a balloon with your air!
>Rhythms (Clapping)
>Tune Preparation (Play the rhythm of the next tune on one note)
>Lip Slurs

Our system aligns well with method books - we want to support your band program.

With so many kids stopping after the first year or two, we need better solutions. Let’s make the arts stronger than ever before, utilizing the best technology in combination with the great teaching they already get!

We're hopeful that our app will actually increase the state of the arts. Please join us on our mission.

For teachers: Thank you for your tireless hard work for kids!! This app is designed to help kids practice better, to support what you are already doing, to save you time while they go home and get better! You will find that it generally follows the design of a method book, and you can simply tell kids, "This week, work on Level 8." The Long Tone support should help improve tone quality and air support, and the video feedback should help kids fix issues they would probably miss in the early years if left on their own. We're in early stages; we would love your feedback on how to improve it for kids

For parents: you've invested time and money in this music adventure, and it's time to help kids get the help they need to use this instrument at home! You can listen to exercises before you play, you can speed them up or slow them down, you can retry exercises until you get the star rating you want.

Download it and explore - watch the kids have fun AND get better!

Great app for beginning player

My son has been using this app and it’s great as a practice assistant. The feedback videos help him understand what he’s doing wrong and how to fix it. The only issue is it only concentrates on the worst problem if you make multiple mistakes, perhaps not a bad thing.

We may be opening that feature up a bit - stay tuned!

I play flute and I just started using the app due to coronavirus boredom. I can’t even get past level 1 because it says I’m not playing a note. Maybe I’m using it wrong?

Developer Response ,

Hey there, did you allow the app to use your microphone? We haven't any other flute concerns. We're here to help, email and we'll set you up!
