Okay for those who already know how to make music

Amanda M. Wu, Amazon
4 December 2010
  • Summary: Like the title, if you already have music knowledge, this would be easy. But seeing how I don't and was hoping this would teach me, I had difficulty. Figured it would teach me notes and later on how to advance, it did it backwards. You cannot unlock individual notes until you know how certain combined notes work. And the sounds are so subtlety close, it's almost impossible to tell them apart. I'm not saying it's a bad game per say.

Hard but awesomely fun

  • Summary: this game is hard, very hard but if you love music...meaning to learn actual note and chords...then you will love this game. it is really great diversion to other games. a different kind of "treat". it has really already improved my score on brain age in the piano player mode where i can now play the hard mode. so i guess it works. it rocks. have fun with it.

Completely Worthless

C. Yu, Amazon
26 November 2008
  • Summary: This game inspired me to write my first-ever review. This is a terrible game. It's extremely limited, teaching you nothing about musical notation. There are long pauses while the idiotic character makes calculations, such as determining that 3 out of 4 correct gives you a score of 3 out of 4. That takes at least 3 seconds. It constantly pauses and tells you to click the screen. It's boring. The graphics are drab. The "Lessons" are exactly the same as the "Tests".

  • Summary: It is fun if you've had a base in music. I enjoyed 're-training' my ears to hear chords and notes again.

  • Summary: This game was not at all what I expected it to be. The package looks very mature, but the game is for children.

Get MusicAce Instead!

B. Conrad, Amazon
28 July 2008
  • Summary: I cannot think of a single good thing to say about this game. This game had to have been made by someone with no musical background or teaching experience. Both sections of the game (Rhythm and Notes) have no sense of sequencing at all. The Rhythm section moves too quickly into complex rhythms and you don't have to bother listening to the rhythms given because you can just follow along with the visual cues in the middle of the touch screen.

Not what I expected

J. Hanners, Amazon
24 March 2008
  • Summary: I love music and when I saw this game I thought what a great way to increase my musical knowledge. This game was not what I expected. I was hoping to do more then learn chords by ear. I lost interest long before I even got to the notes. The rhythm section was a bit better but you just listen to a rhythm and repeat it. I thought it might teach more about playing rhythms or reading note patterns. It was a disappointment to me.

Big disappointment

Ernest Pergrem, Amazon
21 March 2008
  • Summary: Based on the title I had high hopes for Rhythm & Notes. I had hoped it would help develop my rhythm and note reading skills. Unfortnately, it fails on multiple levels. The Rhythm portion is just a set of fixed patterns that you complete one at a time until you've completed all of them. No real variety or opportunity to specify any unique patterns.

Rhythm & Notes

  • Summary: Out of my 5 grandkids who have tried to play this, my 14 year old likes it the best. To be honest, I think it is a little hard for the younger ones.

Jumps right in

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 November 2007
  • Summary: The game jumps right into teaching chords. The note lesson is something you have to unlock by scoring perfectly on a chord test. A bit backwards since I need to learn the notes first. The rhythm part is pretty fun. You have to match the beat by using the L and R buttons. The graphics aren't that pretty. Pastels and not very detailed. It's actually rather cheesy.
