Music Theory Chords
Download on the App Store

Identify chords by sight and sound. Hear the chords played normally, rolled up, or rolled down.

Triads include; dimished, minor, major, and augmented

Seventh chords include; diminished, min7(b5), min7, min(maj7), dominant7, maj7, dominant7(#5), maj7(#5)

Like with Intervals, there are a couple ways to determine the root notes of the chords in the quiz. First, you can have the app generate random root notes. And Second, in between each question, you can set what the root will be for the following chord. In both situations, the chords will always be within the written range you've set in the preferences. So if you pick a root that would put the chord outside the range, the app will move the root so it fits.

Keep the chords on the chosen staff by limiting how many ledger lines you want allowed. You can set this from 0 to 9.

Sight Reading or Ear Training

Turn off the sound for work on identifying the chords by notation, or cover the notation to test your ear's recognition of the chord types. Similar to Intervals, having the chords rolled down is a challenging variation from the traditional way we hear chords.

Four clef options (Treble, Alto, Tenor, and Bass)

Set the number of chances (1 to 3) to get the correct answer.

Number of questions can range from 1 to 100, and also set the quiz to grade only those questions answered. This allows you to test for a period of time, and finish at that point, regardless of the number answered. For example, see how many you can get right in 5 minutes.

There's a timer that records how much time was spent on the quiz. If you want, it can be turned off.

Choose how you want the quiz to look, ink on paper or chalk on a chalkboard.

Grades

Quickly see, filter by name, and edit this list of all saved scores.

You are able to delete selected scores, or all the scores at once.

Teachers may want to limit the access to the grades list, so it can be easily locked and unlocked within the app by using a password that is set in the iPad's Settings app. Just type the password as the student's name and the grades tab unlocks.

The recorded grades include the student's name, date and time the quiz was taken, all relevant quiz settings (clef, number of questions, etc.), and score (percentage and letter grade).

You can enter a name either in the module itself, or in the setup preferences. Just tap on the name and enter the new name.

Example of uses:

Use the timer to set an amount of time to work on a specific skill. Have a student work for 3 minutes and see how well they do. Set the quiz Preferences to grade only those questions answered, with the timer turned on. When they save their score it will show the timer information, number of questions answered, with the date and time the work was done.
