The Rhythm Trainer
Description
Rhythm Trainer is a series of fun field-tested exercises for mastering your essential rhythmic skills no matter what instrument you play. Practice 15 minutes a day in an individual session. The app will adjust the tempo and rhythms for you. It won’t take long to see how the app is much more efficient and exciting compared to conventional exercises along with a metronome. Whether you practice alone or with a teacher, Rhythm Trainer will help you to: • Develop a sense of rhythm. • Sight-read a rhythm notation. • Accurately play a rhythm from notes. • Hear mistakes in a rhythm by ear. Rhythm is the heart of music. Learn the skill once, play rhythmically forever.
Well made app, but needs more options

Great for music students. I like the app however needs further development. Check out ReadRhythm app. Users should be able to 1. Adjust tempo manually 2. Practice mode vs Test mode. Sometimes I don't want to listen to the sample, the point should be to test myself and get it right. The sample basically gives me the answer. 3. More advanced exercises
Easy to use interface

I like how it sequences exercises one after another, letting me focus of the music exercises themselves. Only complaint is that it doesn’t play sound to my Bluetooth headphone, although I understand it’s tricky because my headphone has lag.
Great app waiting for more!!

I have really enjoyed using this app as much as I have found it beneficial. I am looking forward to an update with additional exercises.
Great app! Small changes could make it much better.

This app has helped a lot. In just a few days of training I can find the down beat so much easier. There are a few things that would help make it better: Customizable tempo: 1. moving the tempo down after I fail is great, but if I'm doing really well and them I'm introduced to a new concept at 100+ BPM Its incredibly frustrating. 2. User's should be able to add a bar between listening and playing. Give us more time to think and cement the concept as well as the tempo.. Other: 1. User's should have the option to have the drum sound to when they tap. Would help with people who are listening by ear. 2. Does the gift cards actually exist? I've done more than 30 minutes of recording and nothing has come of it. Also I'm an actor so if you'd like footage of someone using your app, feel free to reach out. 3. Brief tutorials of text such as " with a triplet an easy way to count out loud is 1-trip-let," or "on this one really try and feel the downbeat"
Great app but....
by jemmyjoe on 2019/07/13 16:14
It is a great tool for increasing rhythm notation reading and practicing playing along with a metronome. I recommend it for any musician, not just percussion players. BUT..... There needs to be audio feedback when you hit the pad to play the rhythm it is testing you on. It HAS to happen or it doesn’t feel like you are playing music. As soon as they fix that, easily a five star app that I’d be happy to pay the secret fee for this free app.
Finally!

I could read the chords and melody easy enough but have always had trouble picking up the rhythm from sheet. But no longer!! Awesome!!
Polished and simple to use
by Bugs Bunny 2020 on 2019/05/05 19:09
I like how the app automatically adjusts tempo and repeats tricky rhythms to help re-enforce learning. With that said, the price is on the steeper end given the number of exercises. It would be nice to have the option to sight read a measure without listening to it first. Have you considered adding a grand staff? There’s a lot of potential, especially to train polyrhythms. Hoping to see frequent updates!

Trains to mimic rather than to read rhythms
by idahodon on 2019/04/07 02:42
Please add a setting to turn off audible and visual rhythm queues. I find myself copying what I hear and see rather than reading the rhythm. The app is infuriatingly sensitive counting millisecond misses as incorrect. PLEASE FIX THIS or at least provide settings to relax this annoying behavior

This is a very useful app for people who are staring out new to music rhythms, but I already play two instruments, double bass and bassoon. So I am already pretty good at rhythms. Then I had a rhythm in one of my music pieces that I was practicing and I just couldn’t quite figure it out. When I went to the AppStore I found this app. It had about a 4.5 star rating, so I thought it would be okay. Then I go into the app and it starts me off with easy quarter notes and eighth note stuff. I wanted to get to the section where it had sixteenth and eighth notes in one beat. If I really wanted to get there, I would have to play every level before that. I did not have time for it, plus I already knew most everything. I would only recommend this app to beginners at rhythms. Again, this seems like a very useful app, but for someone that has been playing an instrument for a couple years or more, it’s not very useful.
Needs fixing

Two major problems noticed within a few minutes of using this app: - no sound plays when previewing or tapping the rhythm. Sort of defeats the whole purpose - no lead in count, so a phrase that starts with a rest has no context to understand when the 1 beat begins. Clearly whoever made this has never played an instrument.
Not worth it.
by JesseHolmgren on 2019/02/08 17:11
This app is not worth $13.99. It says it's free, but it gives you only a couple of super basic exercises before it says you have to pay more. If it had more adjustable settings and exercises, it might be worth that much. I thought there would be more when I payed $14 for it, but I have been highly disappointed. I regret this purchase.

Odd rhythms and unforgiving rating
by DoctahDave on 2018/11/30 13:22
I want to love this app. It has a lot going for it. However there are some glaring issues that make it not enjoyable to use. 1) Errors and Bpm slowing - while it makes sense to slow down the tempo if you are not grasping the rhythm, the app counts one mistake and equates it with an attempt that had several mistakes. For instance a 16th note might have gotten missed after a whole note rest and apparently that’s as egregious an error as having missed a whole passage. 2) There’s a small demo before you get to make your attempt, yet there is no count-in. So you simply have to jump right in or wait another two rounds if you want to process the pattern. 3) Some of the rhythms musically make no sense whatsoever. What’s the point of being competent at rhythm if not to get better at complex musical rhythms. I’m not trying to impress someone with my ability to meter out perfect negative spaces between broken notes.
16th rhythms are too sensitive
by victory.b on 2018/11/11 06:32
Idk if this is a bug but the 16th note rhythms are way too sensitive and unless you get it exactly perfect, it fails you and you have to redo it until the bpm falls to like 40 and then that makes it even harder. Can we get an option to set the bpm or can the accuracy be less? I feel like I know the rhythm in my head and many times I tap it correctly but just a little off and it doesn’t let you pass
Beyond taps
by Behnam Behzadi on 2018/09/12 07:31
After using taps in practices, I wish I could hit the string or play a key with the practices using an actual musical instrument.

Hey I’m a user of this app, and I’m kinda clueless on what I’m supposed to be doing cause I’m a beginner and I don’t know why I’m tapping with the rhythm, so an explanation would help, and um....I know that you use the “get access to all exercises for 9.99” to get more money, but looking at your rates, maybe taking that out would help effect that, and also, by having added that, children, such as me, are being forced to stop, because this device they were given already took up all the money their parents could afford on them, and yes, that 10 dollars makes a difference, mr.richpants. So....there.
Works amazing.

Great app really helps you learn how to use and metronome. And trains your to hear it naturally. And to top it all off it fun and interactive. Great job When will you guys upload 6/8 5/4 2/2......
