Learning music theory has become fun and easy! In Music Theory Tutor Volume 1, you’ll learn about the building blocks of music and begin to hear musical keys, scales, intervals, chords, and rhythms in your head so you can compose without an instrument and learn songs faster.
Music Theory Tutor Volume 1 features over 190 engaging lessons that teach music theory with images, audio, interactive tests, and many examples. Based on your responses and skill level, an Intelligent Practice feature will guide you through the detailed curriculum and help you learn crucial musical elements such as rhythm, melody, and harmony. Many lessons let you enter pitches simply by humming, singing, or playing your instrument into the computer’s microphone. Tap rhythms, sing back melodies, guess intervals, and much more. Music Theory Tutor Volume 1 shows you when you are playing or singing the correct pitches in a lesson and lets you see your progress. Gain confidence as you pass quizzes at the end of each subject and ace tests at the end of every grade level completion.
