Tenuto is a collection of 24 highly-customizable exercises designed to enhance your musicality. From recognizing chords on a keyboard to identifying intervals by ear, it has an exercise for you. Tenuto also includes six musical calculators for accidentals, intervals, scales, chords, analysis symbols, and twelve-tone matrices. A short description of the exercises and calculators follows. For a full list of all available customizations, visit the "Developer Website" link on this page or open http://tenuto.link/features/ in your web browser. –––––– • Note Identification • Key Signature Identification • Interval Identification • Scale Identification • Chord Identification Tap the button corresponding to the written staff line. For example: if shown a C, E, and G with a sharp; tap the "Augmented Triad" button. –––––– • Note Construction • Key Signature Construction • Interval Construction • Scale Construction • Chord Construction Construct the specified label by moving notes and/or adding accidentals.

    By far, the single most helpful music training app I’ve ever used. Not only does the app itself run smoothly, but it provides an important variety of exercises to work on. As someone working on ear training predominantly, I would love to see more options in the fields of absolute pitch. More specifically, I would love to have access to other exercises beyond just identifying a single note; specifically chords and scales by note name. (“What chord/scale is this?” In terms of both quality and note name, perhaps more than just identifying the root by ear too.) Regardless, this app has been very helpful for me as a musician, and I hope to continue using it for years to come.

    Frequent updates, fully configurable, quality sounds. The best ear training app available.
  • Awesome for any musician

    My experience with Tenuto has been great. As a guitar player (also working an 8-5) having the opportunity to train my ears while I'm away from the axe has proven invaluable in my overall improvement as a musician. The app is incredibly user-friendly and customizable. Keep up the great work guys!
  • Excellent app

    I was looking for a way to study music theory in an interactive way. This app does just that! With so many ways to customize and immediate feedback, I am able to study more efficiently!
  • Best fretboard learning app

    By Beta rad
    After playing guitar for over 50 years I am finally sharpening up “fuzzy“ areas on the guitar fretboard. Customizable quizzes make it easy to focus on problem areas. I love this app!
  • Awesome

    By ivanlesko
    Exactly what I was looking for. I've been looking for a way to practice reading music when I'm not at the piano. I would love to see the name of the chord appear after correctly identifying it in the chord identification scree
  • Excellent!!!

    Excellente application. Progrès garanti avec de l’entraînement quotidien.
  • Nothing better for music theory

    By Chirobio
    Best app on the market. Must have for musicians studying a very difficult subject.
  • Very Cool

    By hs5vTqhO7P
    I use this app daily due to its ease of use and variety of ear training programs. Can just whip it out whenever a moment and work on my ear on the go. Would love to see an exercise on recognizing chord patterns, similar to tonedear.com!
