Jazzier Suite is a program to aid musicians in improving their ability to recognise pitch, read music and improve their timing.
Box 1 – Metronome
Box 2 – Notation
Box 3 – Pitch
Adjusting the tempo
* Move the Tempo-Meter (Red Horizontal Bar) up or down.
* Fine tune the tempo, click left and right arrows next to the tempo’s (bpm)
* Tap-Tempo (Button X) to find the tempo of any musical track, constantly press button X on the beat of the track. This will set the metronome to the tempo of the track you are listening to. It also provides an average tempo (bpm) based on the accuracy of your tapping over the duration.
The delay times shown at the top of the screen can be entered into a guitar effects pedal or similar effects processor. I have included dotted notes for more experimental delay times.
Changing the Accent
In the [Beats Per Bar (bpb)] box, select 1 if you don't want an accent. Alternatively select any other of the available numbers to place the accent on that beat.
N.B When tap-tempo is used, the metronome is stopped. I found it quite difficult to tap along to a track whilst the metronome is playing.
Once the notation screen appears you will be presented with a question in the form of a note on the stave. At the top of the screen you will see the Key to which the note has been selected from. And to the right, the number of tries you have had.
To answer the question you must select the correct note on the piano for the note on the stave. Once you have correctly answered a question, the number of correct answers will increment on the right side of the screen.
Once you are familiar with all the key signatures you have the option to switch the guide notes off by pressing the button X. Alternatively, press button X to switch them back on.
Once the pitch screen appears you will be presented with a question in the form of a two tones. The first tone will be the root tone. The second tone will be an interval grater than the root tone. To select you answer, select one of the intervals you think is the correct answer.
N.B You will only be able to answer the question when both tones have finished playing.
To move back to the main menu at any given time select the << at the bottom of each screen.
