Without feedback, it can be hard to discover where to focus and improve. No practice tool provides more immediate information about how you play than Sonoptic.

• Watch your pitch, tone, and rhythmic precision improve
• Sharpen your sight-reading skills and master unfamiliar keys
• Use Sonoptic as a quick reference to the basics of scale & chord theory
• No special equipment—Sonoptic works with the microphone in your iPad, and makes deep melodic analysis available to virtually any band instrument

“Play” is the right word. Sonoptic’s immediate feedback draws you deeper into your practice. Even the simplest passage becomes an opportunity to explore and improve.

• Discover the very personal way that seeing what you’ve played motivates you
• Express yourself visually and discover how it changes your approach to practice
• Get new insight into your dynamics and phrasing

Your students don’t always hear what you hear. Sonoptic lets you see and replay the details of a challenging area in a way that’s more memorable than a recording alone. It can also help you illustrate the impact of changes in posture, breathing, and hand position.

• Bring attention to subtle challenges like rhythmic precision, phrasing, dynamics, over-blowing, tuning, etc.
• Tailor degree-of-difficulty to each student's level
• Use Sonoptic's catalog for assignments, or as a launch-point for lesson ideas
• A great tool to help you prepare students for auditions

• Immediate real-time visualization: Pitch accuracy, Rhythmic accuracy, and Phrasing & dynamics
• Playback and scrolling review of your recorded 'takes'
• Nearly 400 melodic exercises and etudes in a variety of genres, including: Scale and Chord Drills, Pentatonic Patterns, Jazz and Blues Patterns, Phrases and Etudes from the Masters, and more
