Description

Chosen by BestEducationalApps as one of the Top 5 Music Theory Apps for iPad - "For music teachers wondering how to get their students to practice chord progressions and new theory topics at home, Music Tool could be the solution. This app is a simple dashboard of notes and chords that make those elements sound out when you tap them. For example, you can tap the C on the keyboard or in the list of notes, and hear the C. You can also tap the C sus4 chord and hear that chord. In addition to the Major scales dashboard, there is a list of modes that allows you to change the dashboard into a list of notes and chords used in the different modes."
