App Store Description:Music theory can be empowering, exciting, and one of the biggest tools in your creative arsenal. Whether you already play an instrument or are just learning, Waay teaches you how to stitch notes together into melodies, chords, and even songs. Read what experts and users are saying about Waay:
"The app is very smooth, and a great resource for learning more about music theory. I found the scale exercises to be very helpful, and I suspect I'll go back to them as a way of keeping those skills sharp."
– Sean Garland (App reviewer at iOS MARS)
"This is a really helpful app. I have been an amateur musician for many years and your circle of fifths explanation is the best I've ever heard. Thanks for putting this app together and sharing it with the world!"
– Tony Smith (Amateur musician)
"If you want a solid introduction to the kind of practical music theory that will get you writing songs that make harmonic sense, then Waay looks like a good place to start."
– John Walden (App reviewer at Music App Blog)
"If only the theory class I dropped out of was as easy and engaging! This is definitely the best way to learn theory. Waay to go!"
– Rob Davis (Guitarist)
"Whether you are a beginner or someone who wants to brush up on their music theory skills, I would recommend Waay!"
– Lisa Chan (Pianist, singer, and music instructor)
