Game Name Music Theory Exercises
link to game (external url) exercises
Code Ricci Adams' page of exercises.
You can use the exercises that are set up already, which are great, OR you can customize  the exercise, which means you can create your own exercises that test or practice specific areas that you want to focus on, like certain intervals you'd like to work on in the interval section, etc.

Use the convenient top menu to explore other useful parts of Ricci's website.
If you click the little picture of the house, you can even get an app for iPad or phone that's only 3.99!

No, Ricci's not paying me anything. I just like the fact that these are really useful tools for teachers and students, and they actually seem to work!

There are two types of exercises; A Mode, where you click in the rhythm you hear, and B Mode, where you see a rhythm and choose the sound that matches. At the end of your session, you can email your results to anyone (for example, your teacher) and they can then see how you are doing.
