Musition Tour

Introduction to Musition

Interactive drill-based teaching makes learning music theory highly engaging and fun! Regardless of your musical style, the music theory exercises in Musition will help you reinforce and expand your knowledge, making you a better musician.

Musition is easy to use and is perfect for beginners and advanced students!


Musition has 38 music theory topics, suitable for beginners and advanced students.  Topics have graded levels, allowing students to learn at their own pace and giving them plenty of scope for extended learning.

It’s easy to ensure that students are practising appropriate content; in addition to the provided syllabuses, teachers can easily create their own syllabus and custom levels.

  • Self paced learning
  • High quality feedback
  • Tapping, multiple choice and notation questions
  • Automatic grading
  • Comprehensive reporting
  • Syllabus and topic customisation





High quality feedback is provided in all drills,with careful consideration given to the response when a student answers incorrectly.

Students can always review the question and answer, including playback as well as notation and text explanations.

Students answer questions in many different ways.  Some topics are very interactive, with one and two handed tapping exercises.  Other topics are based on multiple choice answers, and many have notation input.





We provide Solfege, Piano and Guitar controllers for students to use.




The content library contains hundreds of notation excerpts and questions for your students to practise.  It’s very simple for teachers to import their own items, which can then be used in any topic, test or course, ensuring that curriculum requirements are being met.





There are many possibilities when creating questions, with amazing control over the student experience.

  • Notation entry – transposition, rewriting
  • Notation highlighting – notes, bars and parts
  • Chord symbol entry – figured or contemporary
  • Multiple choice – text, image or notation answers
  • Tapping – reading & tap along



Musition now features an integrated notation editor.  Unlimited parts and bars, control over beaming and grouping, anacrusis support and ties allow you to create small examples very quickly.

If you have created notation items in other software, you can easily import these using MusicXML!





Each topic in Musition has it’s own customised lesson screen, containing notation and audio examples and detailed explanations of the relevant music theory subject.  These are invaluable for student reference and teachers can integrate lessons into their own customised courses.







Courses & Tests

Teachers often use courses and tests to gain further control over curriculum and content.  They give teachers the power to specify the exact questions that students will attempt.





Tests are very flexible, questions can be chosen from any syllabus, topic or level.  Importantly, library questions can also be selected, this allows creation of theory exams with absolute certainty over the content to be delivered.

Courses are sequenced pathways that include questions and lessons.  When setting questions in courses, teachers can set thresholds that must be hit before a student can progress to the next stage.

Scores for tests and courses are stored separately and they can be taken multiple times if allowed by the teacher.


Teachers use tests and courses in many varying ways, generally dependent on curriculum and student requirements.

  • Grading tests
  • End of semester exams
  • Entrance examinations
  • Exam preparation
  • Theory worksheets
  • Homework

Once you have assigned the syllabus to your classes, students will only see topics that you have chosen for them, ensuring focused practise!





Each topic in Musition features a set of lessons.  These are an excellent resource for your students, providing teaching material, audio examples and notation excerpts that assist with the learning process.

Topics such as Instrument Recognition, Chords and Scales also feature a ‘reference’ page where all instruments, chords and scales can viewed and played back. These reference pages will also automatically show any customised Chords or Scales that you may have entered into Musition.








Courses providing a structured learning sequence for your students, allowing you to integrate lessons, drills, library questions and tests in the one task.

There are many courses included in Musition, but you can now create your own!  Creating your own course is very simple, and once done, you can assign them to your students and monitor their progress.

One of the best features of courses is the ability to set thresholds for student progress.  Once set, these thresholds guarantee that students achieve the required score before progressing.




Solfege, Piano and Guitar Input


The onscreen Solfege controller allows students to enter their answers using Solfege note names (Do, Re, Mi, Fa etc) as well as allowing for questions to be displayed on the Solfege controller.

Fixed Do and two variants of Movable Do are supported, with a customised syllabus being supplied for each of the three variations. To further integrate the Solfege controller, many topics have been extensively modified and customised and musical notation also supports the placing of Solfege note names underneath notes.

This allows students to see their correct and incorrect answers in two ways, using both traditional notation and Solfege note names.






Students who are more comfortable working with a keyboard can use the onscreen piano keyboard to easily enter their answers in many topics.




The on-screen guitar fretboard is perfect for guitar players. Note names are highlighted as you mouse over each string and fret position.

Record Keeping & Assessment

While working through each of the topics, Musition instantly marks the student's work and keeps record of their progress for future assessment. No need to manually mark tests so you'll have more time for teaching!

Student Scores

Many items are recorded when students practise their music theory in Musition.  Firstly, the syllabus, topic and level that the student has been working on.  We also record how long they practised, and their scores, on a daily basis.

Many reports are available for the instructor, allowing them to easily provide students with advice directly related to their areas of practise.




Class Management

Classes allow you to group students and then assign tasks that are most relevant to their age and ability.

They are simple to setup and open up many powerful features;

  • Selecting available topics
  • Assigning appropriate syllabuses
  • Setting tests & worksheets
  • Assigning courses

The professor is another class feature, a simple and effective tool for guiding students through practise levels, with thresholds set by the instructor.

In addition to this, many features such as question retries are set by class, ensuring that students in different courses have the correct settings for their age and ability.

We also now allow students to belong to multiple classes.  This gives teachers endless ways to organise students, and when combined with the new ‘hidden’ classes, makes it very simple to address the needs of a diverse group of students.






Tasks & Worksheets
