Title: iTooch Music
Summary: Charming visuals, challenging quizzes build solid musical knowledge
Pros: In-depth lessons on music history, world music, and theory make this a stellar tool for instrumentalists, singers, and music-appreciation students.
Cons: Audio player controls behave inconsistently, and the rainbow-colored lesson text can be a bit hard to read. A feature to save lesson text for offline viewing would be helpful.
Bottom Line: iTooch Music is a terrific reference and review tool for beginning to advanced music students.
