I'm a piano teacher of 15 years and have more and more students who want to play chords and improvise. This app is a perfect resource for them. I like it because it's thorough but at the same time very simple.
I am new to piano, familiar with some scales, and chord progressions but this app will really help me to understand and explore various combinations. I pair this app with additional learning material online to help me fully understand the math / science behind the music.
This app is great for understanding scales, chords, chord progressions, and the circle if fifths. I like the easy to use interface. It only includes common scales and chords. I have another app that has tons of complicated and confusing scales that I've never heard of much less can pronounce. I just wanted something to show me the common scales and chords, and this app does it. It also sounds the chord or scale.
It gives you so much when you’re stuck composing. I’m relatively new to music theory, and for me, this makes everything I’ve been learning about chords super clear.
I have taught piano for 33 years. This is the best app for any level student. It is so easy to use and kids love it when I use the iPad in their lesson.
