"Well-thought-out music training application."

Make Teaching Music Theory Easier with Music Theory Tutor School Edition

eMedia Music Theory Tutor School Edition teaches music theory with over 400 engaging lessons in rhythm, melody, and harmony. It uses images, audio, interactivity, and numerous examples along with pitch and rhythm recognition to help students learn faster and make music theory class more fun! The thorough curriculum was created for teaching music theory from beginning to intermediate levels, and an innovative Instructor Dashboard makes it easy for music theory teachers to manage classes, students, and instructors.

Music teachers are also able to customize lesson plans for each class. An Intelligent Practice feature analyzes student responses and creates individualized practice programs to improve weakest areas. Many lessons allow entering pitches by simply humming, singing, or playing an instrument into the computer’s microphone. Students can tap rhythms and sing back pitches to interact naturally with the curriculum. The software shows when students answer correctly in a lesson, charts their progress, and provides analytics as they move through the course. The music theory software allows the instructor to easily monitor the progress of both individual students and the music theory class as a whole.

  • A step-by-step curriculum designed by Dr. Gregory Simon, who holds a doctorate in composition from the University of Michigan and taught at the University of Colorado.
