In addition Music Muse Academy remembers what you have practiced, so you can review your practice schedule and fine tune it.
Let's take a look at a few of the great features we have to help you make the most of your practice time.
Here is an overview of the academy, please check it out to see how it works.
Focus mode allows the user to really concentrate in on parts of an example. Learning a lick in chunks like this will really make it easier. Sometimes even learning a acouple of bars at a time is too much.
With focus mode you can learn the examples a bar, half a bar or even a beat at a time. Focus mode, like the rest of our site, works really well on mobile devices.
Record mode allows the user to record themselves on the website and listen back.
Recording yourself is a great way to improve quickly. When you play it is difficult to hear exactly you sound. With record mode you get immediate feedback and you can compare your playing with the example to ensure you are getting all of the subtleties.
Each musical style has it's own feel and attitude. Using Music Muse Academy you can really absorb details of a style quickly.
We have modules in many styles including blues, jazz, metal, rock and bluegrass.
