A suite of five modules; Notes (Ear Training with Notation / Keyboard Knowledge), Keys, Intervals, Chords, and Rhythms (Time Signatures), to test basic music skills at an advanced level. Includes an additional 'Grades' module that lists all saved quiz results.

Notes, Keys, Intervals, and Chords modules feature:
• Treble, Alto, Tenor, and Bass clefs.
• Set number of questions, or stop anytime and grade only the number answered.
• Set up to three tries to get the correct answer.
• Record how long it takes to finish the quiz. It can be turned off.

Notes - Ear Training
Drill note/clef/keyboard recognition by sight and/or sound.
• Read written pitches and play them on the piano, or notate a played piano key in your selected clef.
• Work on ear-training by hiding the keyboard or staff prompt during the quiz. Use 'Middle C' and 'A440' buttons to help you figure out the written or played answer.
• Limit the quiz note range from 0 to 9 ledger lines above and below the selected staff.

Drill Major, Minor, and Diatonic Mode Key Signatures.
• Set separate maximum limits of sharps and flats for the quiz.
• Set only major and minor keys, only the seven diatonic modes, or combine both into the quiz.

Test your knowledge of Simple and Compound Intervals.
• Set how the question is asked; playing harmonically, melodically up, or melodically down.
• Have the intervals given with random root notes, or set what the root will be for the following interval.
• Intervals covered are major, minor, diminished, augmented 2nds, 3rds, 6ths, 7ths, and diminished, perfect, and augmented 4ths, 5ths, and octaves.
• Test without sound to identify the intervals by notation alone.

Test your knowledge of Triads and Seventh Chords.
• Triads are major, minor diminished and augmented.
• Seventh Chords are diminished, min7(b5), min7, min(maj7), dominant7, maj7, dominant7(#5), maj7(#5)
• Set how the question is asked; playing normally, rolling the chord up, or rolling the chord down.
• Set a random root movement from question to question, or set what the root will be for the following chord.
• Test without sound to identify the chord by notation alone, or cover the screen and listen to determine the chord quality.

Work on your rhythms and polyrhythmic skills. Develop hand independence with two lines of rhythms.
• Set a time signature from 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, and 5/4.
• Set the number of measures from 1 to 16.
• Select one or two hands - written lines of rhythms.
• Select from one to three pads per hand - pitches notated on, above, and below each line.
• Select the specific combination of note values you want included in the test rhythms: Whole, Half, Quarter, Eighth, Dotted Half, Dotted Quarter, Triplet Half, Triplet Quarter, and Triplet Eighths.
• Include or exclude using rests in the rhythms.
• Exclude grading note durations to better test percussionists or to focus on accuracy alone.
• Listen to the rhythm as many times as you want before and after you attempt playing it.
• Change the tempo between each listen or attempt.
• Record up to three attempt's markings on the rhythm display.
• Attempt the same rhythm as many times as you want.

• A list that contains all saved quiz results. This list is filterable by student name. You are able to delete selected scores, or all scores at once. Access to the list can be password protected by entering a password in the iPad's Settings App.
• The recorded grades include the student's name, date and time the quiz was taken, all relevant quiz settings (clef, number of questions, note values included, etc.), and score (percentage and letter grade).
