Nerds Of Avalon has updated Notes and Scales, a didactic computer game for teaching music basic music theory, to v220.127.116.11.
Here's what they say:
To learn a music instrument is like learning a natural language. You can not start thinking consciously about letters and words if you intend to read text fluidly. The same thing goes with playing music. You need to identify notes and scales on the fly to find the chord you need. This comes with practice that many people find boring. The goal of the program is to sweetening up the practising by doing it by playing a quiz game. The game is suited for all ages and gives parents an opportunity to provide extra motivation for their children.
The game aids learning and training on a screen keyboard so that no external MIDI keyboard is required. Every quiz in the game is divided into multiple levels. The initial level acts as a learning aid. The next levels are for practising the learned contend and grow more challenging when they advance. To proceed into the next level one has to have a significant amount of right answers. Time is also of essence: Faster players earn extra points.
The game is ideal for in between and on the road and runs on older hardware.
The game teaches and trains notes, scales and scale degrees. A mode for chords is in development and will be available for all customers for free in 2018.
You can train hundreds of scenarios when combining different quiz modes with scales and tonics of your choice. You can also choose from many UI skins to customize the look and feel.
