Choose to write the note or play the keyboard to answer the question: What pitch is this?

Read notes written in one of four clefs, and play them on the piano, or notate a played piano key in your selected clef.

Limit the range of notes in the quiz by setting the number of ledger lines allowed; 0 to 9 above and 0 to 9 below the staff.

Notes won't repeat until all pitches in the range have been asked, or you start a new quiz.

Ear Training

After your music reading skills are perfected, raise the bar by hiding the staff or keyboard during the quiz. Use the 'Middle C' and 'A440' buttons to help you figure out the answer with your ear alone.

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.


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.
