Comment: This site has great skills tests that could be a supplement to a music theory
class, which is what this site is based upon. It covers such topics as pitch,
scales, rhythm, chords, intervals, and melody. This site will really test your
abilities going from very basic concepts to much more complex concepts. You
need to have a good ear on the aural part of the skills test. I would not use
this site for music students that have never had any training. Each part gives
you a certain number of questions. Depending on whether you answer it right or
wrong, a tone will sound and then you will go to the next question. At the end
of that session it will tell you how many you got right.

Technical Remarks:

You really need a high speed connection to the internet to view these pages
without getting aggravated. Each session opens up in a different window which
you can close at the end of the session. You will need the java applet in order
to view and hear the test. I wish that they would use a voice saying "that is
correct" or "please try again" instead of the annoying little beeps and rings
when you get an answer right or wrong. You also need a good set of speakers for
the aural part of the test.
