A great tool for musicians, dancers, and all lovers of rhythm.Percussive Arts Society: The interactive application is very thorough [...]. Navigation is simple and the layout is logical and easy to grasp. PercussionTutor will allow you to approach South American, Caribbean and West African music in a different way. This app offers you more than a simple play-along. We included standard notation, videos and specific claves. We also took the outmost care to capture the natural feeling of all those drumming traditions. For the bat rhythms we even developed a random playback engine that will simulate an actual bat performance.This app puts you in a live playing situation - just like you learned your mother language.
