birdSound L. L. C.
Why is practicing with a metronome often difficult? As music teachers, we think traditional metronomes (and metronome apps) are missing an important feature: real-time feedback. A strong sense of rhythm is not just something you’re born with--it’s a skill that anyone can learn through practice! A good teacher can certainly help you improve, but how do you know if you’re practicing correctly when you're not at your lesson?

BirdSound has provided the answer with tempoTeacher, a new universal app for iOS. TempoTeacher has all of the features you’d expect from a traditional metronome and adds the missing piece: clear, real-time feedback to help you improve. It’s simple to use: just turn it on and start playing. TempoTeacher displays, analyzes, and scores your playing for rhythmic accuracy in real time. All you need to do is try to make the score go up! TempoTeacher automatically remembers and displays your top 10 scores, so practicing with a metronome feels more like playing a game than you ever thought possible!

Just started playing? Think you’re a virtuoso? TempoTeacher lets you adjust your skill level from beginner to expert, providing the optimum challenge for players of all abilities. In addition, Real-time feedback makes it easy for you and your music teacher to set practice goals and track your progress, giving you a greater return on your investment in music lessons.

A familiar, attractive user interface makes tempoTeacher a snap to use, even if you’ve never used a music app before. Loads of additional features and a nice price make tempoTeacher a great value--and the only metronome app you’ll ever need. Welcome to the future of music education--let birdSound be your guide!
