    This app has been extremely influential in my ability to read music fluidly. Highly recommend to anybody who is looking to increase their skills in and understanding of music theory.

    This app is completely customizable for practicing everything from music theory to learning the guitar fretboard. They offer a web version of this tool for free but I was so impressed with the web version I wanted to get the app and help support musictheory.net
  • Not really aimed for a broader audience

    Not a reference tool.

    This app is highly sophisticated, allowing you to customize each exercise for difficulty and many other parameters. It performs flawlessly ( the developer worked for Apple ), and the graphics are stunning. Each exercise is realistic and as demanding as you wish... you can go to advanced levels if you wish. Everything that is important and relevant to music theory is here. I grade this app A++, and I am very happy that I found it, I’m using it every day.

    As a person who plays the drums, I don’t really get to train my ears or read notes in terms of scales, chords and so on. This app is a perfect little tool to help my eyes and ears become more familiar with, recognizing, and understanding different sounds besides what the drums can produce. The app is simple and clean, easy to use and you can customize many things in it.

    This app has been absolutely phenomenal for me especially as a music major! Whenever I was having trouble identifying an interval or chord, I could literally get on the app and drill myself over and over until I callus hear the difference and it has made me a better musician!!
  • The Best Theory App our there

    I’ve been a follower of music theory.net since my early music school days. When I found out about the Tenuto app I was skeptical but it has been improved very well over the years and has improved into one of the best theory resources out there that won’t financially break your pocket at all. Whether your a beginner in theory or even a college music student looking to improve your ear training this app will help. There’s a lot of freedom in how you can customize the exercises which allows a certain flexibility in the amount of time practicing and the level of difficulty you want to accomplish. I recommend this app to many of my beginner students I teach that struggle with note reading. For the some that are more tactile, they seem to like the whole app experience while also being able to work on their theory skills. Whether they actually use this to their advantage or not, it is a plentiful resource and sure surpasses the boring flash card days I grew up learning with. Notes in all clefs, scales, key signatures. It’s all useful and especially the calculator portions to those who are approaching composition/analysis aspects of theory.
  • Amazing App and Crazy Helpful

    The functionality of this app could not be any better. From learning to mastering notes this app will do everything you need it to and more. So helpful! I could not have spent my money in a better way!
  • Helpful and non-irritating

    The sound quality is. Better than the free ear apps. There is enough time to recognize the intervals. Could you please please include a section for chord progressions?

    Combines a lot of training tools, and highly customizable. Easy interface as well. I haven’t found another music training app with this many tools. Worth every penny.
