My Thoughts

In my youth, I played various musical instruments – the recorder, the guitar and even the clarinet.    There are times today that I miss not being able to play an instrument.   I almost wish I could play the piano but we don’t have one.   Part of me would like to grab my clarinet but some of the cork is not glued anymore and I don’t have the money to check to see if it is worth it to get it repaired…  Mind you my husband saw one on for 140$ which isn’t expensive considering I paid mine a bit more when I was in high school.   I used to be part of the orchestra.  You can see me in the picture below (I’m the fourth one from the left side or the right side… *grin*).   Ah the memories it brings back to me…


But when I learned music, I was in Quebec and learning it in the French language (do, ré, mi, fa, sol, la, si, do) and not with the letters like in English.    So wanting to learn the English version of reading music, I discovered Musicopoulos.    This app is not only one that can teach me - or should I say help me revise after so many years – the music theory through a series of lessons that is guiding me through the principles of music theory.   


Each lesson also has some exercises that will help you (or your child) to reinforce the principles learned.    And the best part of it is that each lesson builds on the previous one you have done so that your knowledge builds up as you go.

In the music theory section, you will learn about notes and intervals, get introduce to scales, understand the relationship between the scales, learn more about key signatures, major cords,diatonic chords and intervals , chromatic intervals, as well as the different minor scales (relative, harmonic and melodic).    In the sight reading section, you will learn to read clef notes, sharps & flats, key signatures and more.

So far what I have seen from the app is impressive.   It explains in detailed terms that are easy to understand the music theory.    Having a background in French, I am delighted to finally have a tool to learn more about music in English.   I am seriously thinking of introducing my oldest son to this app to see if he would have an affinity with music.   

Musicopoulos is available for the price of 2.99$ on iTunes.
