Identify chords by clicking a screen button as the music plays. Repeat as necessary, click the appropriate box and change any chord, then check your answer.
Most students use the Functions mode (screen shot above) to identify each chord by function. For example, if the chord root is the 5th scale step, the chord function is V.
Advanced students use the Chords mode (screen shot below) and identify the chord by name.
Beginners use the Qualities mode (screen shot below) and identify the chord by quality: major, minor, or diminished.
HOW IT WORKS
Click the green triangle to hear a sequence of 8 chords (1 per bar) played at a moderate tempo. Identify each chord by clicking a screen button. Repeat as necessary, click in the appropriate box and change any chord, then check your answer.
The 20 8 bar chord sequences in each file are shuffled in each presentation.
Automatic scoring, based on number of correct clicks, can be reset at any time. (You cannot immediately repeat a question to improve your score. You must answer another question first.)
See or hide the correct answer at any time.
