Music Theory Software to Help You Compose and Play Music

eMedia Music Theory Tutor Completeincludes over 430 engaging music theory lessons organized to teach the crucial musical elements of rhythm, melody, and harmony. Learn music theory by using images, audio, interactivity, and practical music theory examples. The complete music theory curriculum can take a student from basic music theory for beginners all the way to intermediate-to-advanced music theory.

Start with learning how to read music, chord theory, scale construction, and basic chord progressions. Then advance to understanding the circle of fifths, chord substitution, chord progression theory, and cadence. Acting like a real instructor, the Intelligent Practice feature in the music theory software analyzes your responses and creates an individualized practice program to improve your weakest areas. Hum, sing, or play your instrument into the computer’s microphone. The music theory software can listen as you tap in rhythms, sing back pitches to guess intervals, and interact with the lessons in a natural way. eMedia Music Theory Tutor Complete shows you when you match pitches correctly in a lesson and shows a chart of your progress as you move through the course. Gain confidence as you pass the music theory quiz at the end of each subject and ace tests at the end of every grade level.

The music theory lessons found in eMedia Music Theory Tutor Complete will teach you the building blocks of music. Learn to hear musical keys, scales, intervals, chords, and rhythms “in your head,” to help you compose music (with or without an instrument), improvise solos, and learn songs by ear faster.

Features include:

  • Learn music theory with a step-by-step curriculum designed by Dr. Gregory Simon, who has a Ph.D. in music composition from University of Michigan who has taught at the University of Colorado.
  • Music theory software featuring over 430 music theory lessons, exercises, and tests with graphics, interactivity, and sound.
  • Both music theory and basic ear training combined into one powerful application.
  • Graphs, charts, and lists to view your answer statistics and easily measure your progress as you learn music theory.
  • Intelligent Practice that tracks your progress and automatically selects questions to improve weak spots.
  • Exercises teaching rhythmic fundamentals including tempo, counting beats, measures, values for notes and rests, and syncopation.
  • Rhythmic lessons teach counting, recognition of simple and compound time signatures (including 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, 7/4, 3/8, 9/8, etc.), and cut time.
  • Interactive music theory lessons on how to read music, with explanations and exercises for learning clefs, key signatures, note pitches, names, and rhythmic values (including dotted and beamed notes) including advanced triplets.
  • Explanation of major, minor (harmonic and natural), and chromatic scale construction plus modes and the circle of fifths.
  • Ear training and theory exercises teach you to identify and understand note direction and motion, intervals (fourths, fifths, tritones, melodic/harmonic, etc.), scales, chords, and progressions.
  • Melodic identification studies that cover note stability and resolution plus the roles of melody and harmony.
  • Interval identification studies (fourths, fifths, tritones, melodic/harmonic, etc.).
  • Chord theory lessons outline chord construction (major and minor triads, diminished, augmented and 7ths), inversions, and arpeggios.
  • Lessons on chord progression theory covering chord function and cadence within progressions (tonic, dominant, subdominant, etc.), Roman numeral (I, IV, V, etc.) and figured bass notation, plus chord substitutions, phrasing, passing and pedal tones.
  • Lessons and exercises in musical form and analysis (binary, ternary, rondo, phrasing, etc.) help you better understand composition.
  • A harmonic flowchart plus major and minor harmony studies.
  • Solfege studies, with arpeggio and sight singing.

Learn How Music Works with Over 430 Interactive Lessons

Learn to read music and how rhythms, scales, chords, and chord progressions are created and interact. Know the principals of music construction that every composer, songwriter, and instrumentalist should understand.

Learn More Advanced Rhythms, Scales, Chords, and Concepts

Learn about the construction of augmented and seventh chords; harmonic, melodic, and natural minor scales; modes; musical keys; the circle of fifths; and more. See how chord function, harmonic cadence, substitutions, and other factors relate to chord progressions.

Understand and Recognize Musical Form

Learn about the construction of augmented and seventh chords; harmonic, melodic, and natural minor scales; modes; musical keys; the circle of fifths; and more. See how chord function, harmonic cadence, substitutions and other factors relate to chord progressions.

Learn Solfege and Sight-Singing to Hear the Music “In Your Head”

Learn sight-singing skills and know how compositions will sound as you read the sheet music. Use sight-tapping and practice reading rhythms and Rhythm Imitation studies help you recognize rhythmic form. Lessons on interval and chord recognition teach you relative pitch and let you identify melodies, scales, chords, and progressions. Sight-reading is a great tool for composing with or without an instrument, improvising, and learning songs by ear.

Intelligent Practice

An Intelligent Practice feature tracks your progress and automatically adjusts exercises to improve your weak spots, as a real instructor would do. Want to practice something specific?
