Music Flash Class ($3.99) — for iPhone/iPad.
Music Flash Class is an app developed by a piano teacher Henry Flurry. It has been around for a couple of years now, but an update for iOS 8 was recently released. The new layout looks good!
Music Flash Class is an interactive note identification app. The settings offer a myriad of options to customize the experience. I love that you can chose to show or hide the timer. And that you to choose a particular range of notes to practice. Teachers can even customize and save their own “decks” of notes.
Other perks, according to the developer:
- You define the notes you want your student to drill.
- You decide if the application should test or teach.
- You decide how many cards, how long to test, how quickly they must answer.
- You decide whether to drill in letter names, solfège, keyboard mode, or several other options!
- You decide what accidentals, keys, and modes to test.
- You see (and save!) what notes were wrong.
The other thing that makes this app unique is the group game modes. In the settings, for example, you can select “Hot Potato.” Students gently pass around the iPhone/iPad as they attempt to choose the correct note before the Hot Potato buzzer sounds. If students jostle the device too much as they pass it to the next player, a buzzer will go off and the round ends (which encourages students to be gentle with your device). At the end, the app displays the number of correct answers were answered.
