It helps you understand the basic rules of reading and writing classical scores as well as develop skills of playing and singing musical notes. There is an interactive interface that allows you to discover the rules of notation in the music world. Additionally, the app comes preloaded with some intuitive exercises to let you learn not just how to play a musical instrument but also how to sign a song in a melodious form.
