New York, New York – Listen and Learn today is proud to announce the release of Listen & Learn: Banjo 1.0, its new music title developed exclusively for iPad tablets. Listen & Learn: Banjo offers banjo students a new way to approach learning music. This easy-to-use method combines written notation and audio recordings so you’re challenged to figure out notes and phrases By Ear — but you still have a visual reference of where you are in the song. This allows for faster internalization of melodies and ear training, ultimately allowing for stronger improvisation and creative skills.
Find the notes on your instrument, play them to your iPad, and you’re rewarded with stars to unlock more difficult songs. That’s the basic idea of L&L. Beyond that, you’re polishing your chops on nine popular bluegrass jam tunes. Also, the app has all of the practice tools you need to transform yourself in to a top-notch player, including:
* Instructional Videos (for you beginners to learn the basics)
* Jam Tracks (with real instruments to play along with)
* Metronome (practice melodies at different tempos)
* Tuner (throw away your external tuner!)
* Recorder (listen back and track your progress)
You have the ability to speed up and slow down tracks, so you can more easily learn by ear and play along with songs at different tempos.
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 45.9 MB
