Rhythm is the heart and soul of bellydance. The drumming and the dance are inseparable. Middle Eastern rhythms are rich and complex. Rhythm ID makes it easy to learn and remember Middle Eastern rhythms using the time-proven tradition of test-taking to drill the knowledge home.

It can be difficult for new dancers to detect the rhythm in a piece of bellydance music. And yet knowing the rhythms is a crucial part of becoming a good dancer. This app will help you train your ear to identify the rhythms with greater depth.

For drummers, the ability to remember rhythms is even more important. This app can help drummers learn the nuances among the different rhythms. The key to becoming better at anything is practice, practice, practice. Rhythm ID will allow you to practice along with actual musicians by using short looped pieces of music to save memory. The app also enables you to record and save new rhythms.
