Music Theory on your iPhone!

An interesting gizmo... "… an incredible tool for both amateurs and serious musicians. Anyone taking music theory or ear training courses needs this app. The competition aspect is brilliant, keeping students' interest and challenging them to become faster and more accurate." Dr. Alan Smith Chair, Keyboard Studies USC Thornton School of Music Music Theory on your iPhone! Dr. Joel Clifft, a professor in the music department at USC and APU, has created Music Theory Pro – an iPhone app for musicians or anyone who wants to learn music. His students joke, “It’s like having Dr. Clifft in my pocket!”. Beginners quickly become Pros. Users who are just learning music will be able to practice naming notes on the piano and on the staff. As they progress they will master key signatures, intervals and chords. The app provides detailed, multi-media explanations for each concept. Sharpen your ears The ear training section provides several challenges for the more advanced student. It takes a sharp ear to identify seventh chords and modal scales quickly. There is even a tempo quiz to identify beats per minute by assigning a number to a click track. Increase your skills by competing with others Various exercises propel you to higher scores, which you can post to compete for top ratings. Who will be #1 in the world this month? Could be you!
