As an instructor in music theory, I'd say this program has some quirks. First, there are some weird things within each module: for example, when setting up the key, the solfege module uses bad voice-leading (especially in minor). I realize that's not the point of the exercise, but I can't recommend something to my students if it isn't mutually reinforcing with all the other things we do. Finally, the modules as a group are a bit bizarre: one or two would be great for my aural skills class, one or two for written theory, etc. And the huge range of skill level involved (for example, "identifying notes on the piano" versus "identifying non-diatonic scales") is a bit baffling, and doesn't seem very targetted at any group in particular. Still, well designed and easy to use.

I tried this software but by trying to use the european notation (Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, etc...) but the quick din't work. Enven if you have setting the European notation, the software required the other notation (A,B,C,D,...) For me it is impossible to use because i don't able to use this notation

I'm currently in music theory. We just were told to go to musictheory.net in class but this is the whole enchilada! Wish I had found this earlier though because the final exam is tomorrow :( It's jammed-packed with exercises but this is also kind of a flaw. The interface is really cluttered and overwhelming - but it's a minor gripe.

Seems like a nice and useful program for those interested in music. However, I couldn't get it to work on my PowerMac G5 2.0Ghz DP.

I attend a Musicology institute, and I have to say that this program could be very useful for newcomers. It has many nice quiz about: Note Names, Key Signatures, Intervals (which you can hear both harmonically and melodically), Chords and a little quiz for coming piano players...For every exercise you can set many parameters, from basilar clefs and chords to use to more complex matters (like Enharmonic intervals or accidentals)... If you are a newbie and you want to improve your note reading, your hearing and other things as signatures this is a must. Pity that the notes are in only one "format": A B C D E F G.... they could put the choice to select between letter notes and proper notes as DO RE MI FA SOL LA SI..... However I suggest this!

Its cool! I really noticed an improvement in recognising the cords after some practice.

This would be a good program for anyone who wants to hone their music skills. I taught elementary music for 34 years. This would have helped my kids, but I'm not sure they would have found it exciting enough. Being a flute player I found identifying the chords to be challenging for me. I'm sure if I spent time with it I would definitely improve on chord recognition. I'm not sure younger kids would have enough knowledge to be able to set up the quizzes wisely. It's a good, basic program. I like the instant feedback. The chance to hear a chord again after guessing several wrong guesses and then finally finding the right one would be helpful.
