Lanarkshire, United Kingdom – Independant developer, Gary Milligan is today excited to announce the release and immediate availability of Practice Makes Perfect v1.3, an iPhone application designed for music students who are learning an instrument, especially those working towards a graded exam. This app allows students to tailor their instrumental practice time by inputting the arpeggios, scales and musical pieces to create effective practice sessions.
Inspired by the “put all your scales in a hat” method, Practice Makes Perfect was created so that music students could log what they had to practice and have a record of which elements needed more work. Once the student has entered their arpeggios, scales and musical pieces/exercises, they can create one or more practice sessions that focus on their current repertoire and arpeggio/scale lists. Random and custom practice options are available.
During a practice session, the student is presented with an arpeggio, scale or piece. Once the student has completed their practice of this element, they can update the skill level (star rating) of that element before moving onto the next item in the session. The skill level element of the app allows users to build practice sessions that focus on their weakest areas – practicing these weak areas will help them become more proficient as a musician and help them prepare for graded exams. All practice sessions are timed, with stats available on the total time practiced that day, as well as the last 7 and 30 days.
Other features include:
* Ability to track multiple instruments
* Common arpeggios and scales are included within the application and each of these have a musical score included for reference
* As well as musical pieces and exercises, users can add their own arpeggios and scales to the practice lists
* Performance notes can be added to any practice element
* Built in metronome which remembers the BPM value for each practice element
* Select from a choice of color schemes
Version 1.3 adds notes to each practice item, an option to change the colour scheme, as well as sports an updated user interface to make the app cleaner and easier to use. Practice sessions are timed and stats for today, last 7 days and last 30 days. Random and custom practice options were also updated.
