Dr Rhythm puts unique insights into written music notation in your pocket.

Hear and See the Rhythm

As your pattern is being played and you hear the rhythm, Dr Rhythm allows you to follow the current note or rest by highlighting it on the display so that you can see its contribution to the rhythm.

Have fun building your own rhythmic patterns, this will rapidly increase your music sight reading skills.

Music Notation Metronome

Use Dr Rhythm as a sophisticated music notation based metronome - you can program exactly the rhythmic sequence you wish. Drummers and percussionists can produce music notation based ‘click tracks’.

Play with Time Signature, Speed and Sounds

Change playback speed, time signature and playback instrument as the pattern plays. Playing with the app builds a solid sound memory for music notation patterns, increasing your sight reading abilities as you play and have fun!
