Select, play or sing
Some tests in Musition have multiple-choice questions; others let you answer by clicking an on-screen piano keyboard, playing on a MIDI keyboard.
Musition has graded levels, so students can progress to more advanced exercises as they improve.
When a student has mastered a topic at a particular level and is achieving good test marks, 'The Professor' will automatically move them up to the next level. You can even create your own tests to suit your students' requirements.
Track student progress
Musition records all your results, for you to view on screen or print out.
You can print student and class results in any of 25 useful reports, and marks are compiled over time so you can monitor students' progress from week to week.
If you use a network, all student results are stored in a single central database, whichever computer they work on.
If you get stuck, or need some extra help, Musition includes detailed on-screen reference information, with helpful music examples to listen to.
