We made this app to help you easily understand and find info about music theory.

Okram UF is a Swedish company and we made this application as a product for our entrepreneurship class in school.
Please, contact us if you find any bugs or misspellings!

You can find information about:
- Chords
- Intervals
- Circle of fifths
- Note values
- Rests
- Scales
- Symbols (dynamics, notes, bars, key signatures)
- Ear trainer

Everything is free except "hard" and "expert" in Ear trainer. To unlock those difficulties you need to purchase the full version of Musik Theory Helper. You can purchase the full version from inside the app. We really appreciate if would do so.

Hi, I've tried this app and I have some feedback:

Pros
  • Great UI! Nice to see some Card UI here, makes it look really sleek.
  • Overall some great content here, quite substantial material for beginners and more advanced musicians.
  • Touching the cards and hearing things played back is great!
  • Play Games leaderboard is a nice touch (1st in the world for Beginner Intervals and Medium chords, yeeeeah)
  • Great to see the Circle of Fifths - something often forgotten in many theory apps

Things to add/change:
  • It would help learning musicians a lot more to use scale degrees rather than just note names, eg. For a major chord, using I III V rather than C, E and G. It makes chord building a lot easier, though what you have done gives very nice examples of the different types of chords. Using both scale degrees and notes as examples would really help people who are starting out in theory.
  • Likewise with scales - it helps more to use TTSTTTST for major rather than use notes, and using both would be great.
  • Very nitpicky detail but a perfect unison refers to the distance between two notes. On your chords page, instead of using perfect unison its better to use "root"
  • Have an option for alternate note names - I use the "semibreve, quaver, crotchet" naming system so having an option to choose between the two would be nice.

Otherwise I'm thoroughly impressed with this app, definitely one of the better apps on the Play Store. Will recommend to my muso friends as well

(I'd happily provide my music theory knowledge if you want as well)

    I have never used that kind of chord formula, but is the minor chord also I III V, since that chord gets the minor third from the minor scale?

    TTSTTTST?
    What does T and S mean?
    I have seen WWHWWWHW (whole/half)

    I will change that in the next update

    Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. I will try to add that in the next update


Thank you for your feedback!


Where should I place I III V? You choose

Ahhh sorry I've made a mistake here D:
For building triads its not Roman nunerals - its using 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 and accidentals...
So eg.
Major - 1 3 5
Minor - 1 b3 5
Aug - 1 3 #5
Dim - 1 3 b5
And so on forth.

T = Tone = whole step
S = semitone = half step
Either work well
