Easily learn music theory with Sonid, an app for iOS and Android!
Understand how music works!
Sonid is a music education app that allows you to learn music theory in a fun and orderly manner. It is different compared to other applications because it focuses on a single subject at a time. This approach will make your understanding of music expand more naturally and gives you the time to adapt to the new material. Complete Sonid and become a more refined musician.
Sonid is made for beginners and more advanced musicians that would like to broaden their musical horizon.
Free yourself musically!
From the most basic subjects in music theory to very advanced jazz harmony understanding, sonid is the way to go. Start taking classes to learn about naturals, the prime interval or a flat note. Finish your course with playing the most lush maj7#11 chord voicing or melancholic spanish phrygian scale on your instrument. You can learn it all step by step, and it’s all for free!

Read and exercise on any device!
The most complete music theory app around.
Sonid includes a full wikipedia with information and explanations going from any basic topic like naturals or sharps and flats, the Cmaj7 chord or a D lydian scale. It also covers more advanced subjects such as: scale and chord degrees with roman numerals, secondary dominants and moll-dur.
Moreover, the wiki is accessible from anywhere inside the app. Even while doing a lesson! If you need even more tutoring, you can check out the forum or tryout any chord and scale in our playground!
Extend your progress on your instrument!
For those who are keen on making the most out of their learning experience we've created an extension to practice music theory on guitar.
Why learn music theory?
Help your ears play music.
Help your ears to play the right note or chord by understanding which progressions are in a certain key. Or which scale is to be played at a given moment in your song. Make variations of what is to be expected by altering modes. Play moll-dur on the fourth grade or a dominant chord on the third.
Play beautiful melodies in any key.
Find the right notes at the right time. Build your solo up from the ground exactly how you feel it at the moment with passion and rejoice. From the most basic C major and A minor keys to church modes like G dorian or F lydian and altered scales like D mixolydian #11 your phrasing will be spot on.
Use chord substitutes and inversions.
Make your playing sound unique by using different versions of chords, or replace them altogether to give a change of colour in your voicings. Substitute Fmaj7 with Dm9 or play an inspiring Amaj9#11 instead of B7 to sound genuine and in control of your instrument.
Write the most compelling songs.
Composing new melodies and chord progressions will never feel the same after completing the music theory lessons. Express your emotions just the way you want them. Explore new realms of music harmonies and take your listeners on a fantastical journey.
Communicate with musicians.
Let your fellow musicians know what you expect from them using the correct terminology creating an open and creative environment to let your songs grow more naturally.
