Gone are the dreaded days and endless hours of slaving away practising dry, dull exercises without musicality. With this revolutionary app, you can now play along to accompaniments that turn your scales & arpeggios into an exciting musical experience.

This app features a vast library of incredible backing tracks that accompany you as if you are playing in a live ensemble such as a jazz ensemble, brass band or even a full symphony orchestra! You can even change the tempo in real time to assist with progress!


•ScaleTracks is remarkably easy to use, displaying a scrolling score of the chosen scale or arpeggio while you play;
•ScaleTracks features REAL musicians, not basic MIDI sounds;
•ScaleTracks contains a vast library of over 120 unique, catchy, professionally-composed backing tracks that cover every major and minor key;
•ScaleTracks is compatible with most melodic instruments (transposing instruments will be catered for in a future update);
•ScaleTracks is suitable for all ages and ability levels;
•ScaleTracks covers a wide variety of genres from Baroque to Dubstep;
•ScaleTracks can be set to play at any tempo that suits you;
•ScaleTracks offers you a better understanding of harmony by giving true harmonisations of scales and arpeggios with each track, which in turn opens the door to improvisation and composition;
•Play along with a brass band, rock group or symphony orchestra, and many more ensembles, from the comfort of your living room or practice studio;
•ScaleTracks is a great way to prepare for any music exam.

The amazing accompaniments complement every single note you play in a huge variety of styles. ScaleTracks can help you improve and enhance:

• Intonation
• Rhythm
• Harmonic awareness
• Aural skills
• your technique

For the most immersive experience, we recommend pairing your phone to a Bluetooth speaker.

** The in-app purchase 'Activate all tracks' is only required for legacy versions prior to version 1.3. **

Almost perfect

Love it- just PLEASE consider facilitating much higher tempo than the maximum available now!
Well worth buying the full version. My more advanced students love it too, but the blah tempo is disappointing for them. Let's give those hard-working advanced pupils some fun too!!

Like the previous reviewer, I was annoyed that a supposedly "free" program cost $5 for the additional music files. The extra files ate up enough space on my iPad Mini that I had to remove some other apps so that this new program would run. Once installed, it is useful; I and my students (especially those at homes without a piano) can play scales and arpeggios and see if they are in tune. As a violist, I'd like to see this app with the ability to read and play alto clef; cellists would desire bass clef. This app is a little buggy, but it has great potential; I look forward to later versions.

I like it

But is there really no tablature, just notation??

Developer Response ,

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We intend to include tablature in a future release of the app. In the meantime, have you checked out our other app ScaleTracks JAM? This has full guitar tab included and it is design to improve knowledge and enjoyment of scales through improvisation, with epic Jam tracks like you have never heard before. Thanks again
