I came across another app that I am absolutely in LOVE with. I had just blogged about more apps last week that I thought this is something that can go on and on. Then I came up with an idea to do Tech Tuesdays so I can feature some of my favorite apps that I have come across. In addition, I can give some tips and tricks about music technology, studio labs, etc… So if you have any suggestions, questions , ideas you would like to see in Tech Tuesdays shoot me an email. As long as it’s not too technical- ha ha!
So my first Tech Tuesday post is on a new app that I found last night. I am so excited about this app because not only is it a steal at $2.99, it covers pretty much everything you can think of for beginning theory!
It is called “Music Theory for Beginners” by MusicRoom. This app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later. When I first was looking at this app, I was debating whether to buy it. But after looking at the screen shots I decided to give it a try. Okay, let’s just say this app is jam packed and worth more then the $2.99 I paid for it. I don’t know how long it will be at this price so I say get it before everyone catches on how cool it is!
First you choose a game mode. Lesson or Quiz. If you think you know your “stuff” then you can skip the lessons and go right to quiz. There are 22 lessons, 5 tutorials and 5 test that cover all the major theory topics.
Topics are as follows:
-The Treble Clef
-The Bass Clef
-Slurs and Ties
-Pickups and Repeats
-Beyond the Staff
-The Major Scale
-Major and Minor Chords
I have only tried a couple of the topics so far but was surprised how comprehensive it was. I would highly recommend it for both teachers and their students. You can’t beat the price for what you are getting! Enjoy!
