App Store Description

You're writing a new song, but keep getting stuck. What chords sound good together? What melody fits those chords? Waay helps you master these skills with its interactive exercises, video lessons, and progress tracking tools. Read what experts and users are saying about Waay:

"If only the theory class I dropped out of was as easy and engaging! This is definitely the best way to learn theory. Waay to go!"
– Rob Davis (guitarist)

"If you want a solid introduction to the kind of practical music theory that will get you writing songs that make harmonic sense, then Waay looks like a good place to start."
– John Walden, App Reviewer at Music App Blog

“This is a really helpful app. I have been an amateur musician for many years and your circle of fifths explanation is the best I've ever heard. Thanks for putting this app together and sharing it with the world!”
– Tony Smith (amateur musician)

"The app is very smooth, and a great resource for learning more about music theory. I found the scale exercises to be very helpful, and I suspect I'll go back to them as a way of keeping those skills sharp."
– Sean Garland, App Reviewer at iOS MARS

“Whether you are a beginner or someone who wants to brush up on their music theory skills, I would recommend Waay!”
– Lisa Chan (pianist, singer, and music instructor)

------------------

Music theory can be empowering, exciting, and one of the biggest tools in your creative arsenal. If you play an instrument and want to level-up your songwriting skills with music theory, Waay is the app for you.

Waay teaches applied music theory—stuff you can take straight to your instrument and use. Want to know what notes sound good together? Waay covers that in the first course called "Melodies." Want to know which chords fit well together, and how to build any major, minor, or diminished chord? That's what the second course, "Chords," is all about.

Using a combination of bite-size video lessons and interactive exercises, Waay takes you from the basics of notes, steps, and keys all the way through chords, chord progressions, and more. The first course even comes completely free with the app, including 8 video lessons and 9 interactive exercises. Here's what else you get with Waay:

• Music theory tailored for songwriters
• Video lessons with many musical examples
• Interactive exercises on keys, intervals, scales, and more
• Built-in tools to track your progress
• No connection required! Lesson videos will download automatically as soon as you're on WiFi, and then you'll never need a connection again to use the app. Perfect for your subway commutes and plane adventures.

And here's what you'll learn:

Course 1: "Melodies" (free with app)
