Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro

A new tonal harmony teaching tool has been released, complete with a nice tutorial series to help you get started.

iTunes Description:

Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro has been envisioned as auxiliary material in the study of Tonal Harmony. The main objective of this app is to provide the student, teachers, composers and/or songwriters with a tool that will aid them in hearing, analyzing, foreseeing and composing harmonic progressions without struggle, in all keys alike.

The map has seven levels of complexity, from the basic diatonic neighborhood advanced secondary functions in major and minor modes and is viewable in all 12 keys and enharmonic spellings, plus a functional view (relative to the tonic). Each level is also accompanied by its respective workbook available at mDecks.com for further study and research.

Buy Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro on iTunes: $13.99

hmm.. I've been looking for something like this, my music theory is pretty rough. seems pretty well put together from the vid

This does look pretty cool, but I am a bit concerned about the ambiguity on their site regarding the "soon to be available" .pdf materials that they promise - other materials they sell cost from 8 to 46 dollars. This app, while useful and nicely designed, could be a fancy sales pitch.

At last an useful music app for the iPad. I am a songwriter and composer and certainly will give this app good use. Very well put together.

@ mojo- the way I am reading it, seems that the books are like companion materials rather than a manual- so I wouldn't begrudge them charging for those. my guess is they want it to be used by music teachers with the ebooks as lesson plans. It looks useful enough on its own though

The books are certainly only companion material. The app does not need them, I did find out before purchasing the app.
The mapping is very interesting and helpful, quite smart the way they arrange the functions over the circle of fifths I must say.
