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.

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.

Terribly sorry about the poor voice leading; I'm surprised I didn't notice it. It's fixed now.

As for the organization, I agree, it's not targeted at any particular group. I like that it has more advanced topics along with the easy ones; I think it will encourage curious students to explore.

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.

Are you sure your PowerMac was running OS X v10.4 or later? If so, please let me know more information so I can attempt to reproduce the bug.
