In my music theory and ear training classes at APU and USC, I try to make skill-building into a game. A little friendly competition turns boring drills into an exciting game. That's what I've done with MTP. You will be presented with either a note, key signature, interval, chord, scale, or tempo. Then, your job is to identify what you see or hear as quickly as possible to make high scores and beat other people who are playing around the world.
Whether you’ve just started learning music, or are looking for something challenging, this app is right for you.
Note Naming Games
Interval Ear Training
Beginner mode for Note Names, Key Signatures and Interval ear training
Competitive Games- post your score to compete worldwide
Ear Training Chords– inversions, open voicings Ear Training Scales – Modes, Western Scales, Blues, Whole Tone, Pentatonic, etc.
Jazz Chords and Scales – Altered Dominants, extended chords
MTP is also available for apple computers in the app store.
Also, with each of these different activities and excersises, you can alter the amount of difficulty in the settings by turning the harder answers off, and working on the basics or by flipping them all on for maximum difficulty. See what others think about this amazing app!
“I survived my first year of music theory with this, and am still constantly using it this year as well. It is nicely customizable and easy to use. There's a lot of material is covers. I absolutely love the ear training. It has been invaluable. Looks nice, too! This is the app to buy for Music Theory class.” – Whitney Huskey
“I love this app. It also has some challenging ear training exercises. I have bought a lot of music theory apps and this one is my favorite for theory” – Hadrian7
Beginners quickly become Pros
Users who are just learning music will be able to practice naming notes on the piano and on the staff. The help section includes instructional videos with graphics and audio to teach the basic concepts. As they progress they will master key signatures, intervals, scales and chords.
Sharpen your ears
The ear training section provides many challenges for the more advanced student. It takes a sharp ear to identify altered dominant chords and modal scales quickly. For jazz musicians we’ve included the modes from the melodic minor scale and all kinds of extended chords. 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!
