iPad apps to help get started with music theory

4 comments

Hi,

Being without an iPad/tablet computer, I would like to know if anyone has found any good apps to help get pupils started with music theory. e.g. timed games identifying pitches etc. I have done a few searches and not been very impressed with what I have seen, including examples that are actually wrong?

Please help.

Thanks!

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

That's a great question... I'm not aware of any myself but maybe others have some ideas?

Also the Flowkey app is good for learning songs note-for-note. There are several boogies available on the app, including 6 that I personally recorded for it. You can check out the page I just created for it on the "All Courses" page of this site. Or go directly to the app here.

    Hi all, I live in Perth, Western Australia and have returned to the piano after a break of 30 years (kidds and career got in the way !!). I am thoroughly enjoying working through the on-line tutorials and have purchased the " Boogie book". I have a question regarding integrating two of the licks into 12 bar blues format (Lick 1, tracks; 34 and 35). I have learnt these tracks (walking base is still challenging !), but can't figure how to do the chord change for 12 bar blues. Each of the other tracks in the book have the pick up note for the chord change as the last note of the measure, making the change sound "right", but the tacks noted just end, with-out a pick up note. I would really appreciate some help with this, as I like tack 35 in particular and want to be able to use it in full 12 bar blues chord changes and combined with other variations / licks. Regards, Dave M

    Hi again, I released another boogie composition. This one has a woodwind intro, but it's boogie after that. All feedback welcome. https://soundcloud.com/disconnectica/finger-clash-boogie

    Hi, not sure if this is the right place, but I googled for a boogie forum, and this came up. I just uploaded a boogie piece I wrote, and thought this might be a good place to get some feedback, or just where people might be interested. https://soundcloud.com/disconnectica/those-year-12-blues-boogie-woogie I actually wrote this about 30 years ago! It remained mostly a piano solo all that time until a few weeks back when I added drums and upright bass. I think it really fleshes it out. I play piano, but not well enough to play this! So I'm afraid this is programmed rather than performed (is that a big no-no here?), but I don't think it sounds too arteficial. Or does it? You tell me! Rather than combining existing licks as one might when improvising, I tried to write it all new, from scratch (even the left hand is playing an original bass line). Any feedback would be welcome, good or bad. Thanks for your time! Rob.
