What is Mozart?

Mozart is a program designed to aid in the process of learning how to read music. It does that in form of a game. Once the game is started via the toolbar notes begin streaming from the right side of the screen. These notes have to be identified in the order of their appearance with the current input instrument (i.e. piano). In addition to regular notes there is an array of game characters including bonus notes, flyers, jumpers, bombs, and many more. Once a note gets too close to the clef on the left side of the screen it disappears in a cloud of vapor and the player loses one life point. For each note named in time the player receives one or more points. The further the game progresses the more notes will appear and their range will widen to potentially include many ledger lines above and below the staff as well as accidentals. Once a player has depleted all of his or her lives the game is over and he or she may receive a high score.

Mozart 2 Pro for iOS

Mozart 2 Pro is the new Mozart app for iOS. It has been 7 years since the first version of Mozart made its first appearance on an iPhone and Mozart 2 Pro is a worthy upgrade with tons of new features. This is a universal app that will run on any current iOS device and can be shared on up to 5 devices with family sharing. There are many new features in Mozart 2 Pro that were formerly not available.

Mozart 2 Pro now includes 11 instruments with the added banjo and entire classical string section comprising of cello, double bass, viola and violin with scordatura support. Mozart 2 Pro comes with an incredible 128 built-in instrument sound choices and a new cool feature that lets you repeat the last game. New game characters include the feared double-time spinning cube and the new detonators. But more importanltly Mozart 2 Pro now includes half and quarter notes in realistic rhythmic spacing. Clef handling was completely revised and also adds "octave-dropped" treble and bass clefs where indicated. Grand staff is now supported in several instruments on the iPad. Another great new feature in Mozart 2 Pro is missed note highlighting to support note memorization and then there is the new range treatment with clearly marked note choices right from the beginning.

For a full breakdown you may want to take a look at the Mozart 2 documentation. A Mozart 2 Facebook page has been established as well and is constantly being updated with new feature posts and special offers.

Virtual Instruments

Mozart has a number of virtual instruments that can be used during games. These act like little mini instruments and can be played anytime. The tuning for all string instruments (.i.e. guitar) is adjustable to accomodate open or uncommon tunings. Additionally, with exception of Letters and Solfege syllables, the notes belonging to the current key signature can be highlighted using gum drops.



In Mozart's Settings instrument and clef are selected. There are two basic instruments - letters (c, d, e) and solfége (do, re, mi) and four advanced instruments - bass, guitar, mandolin and piano. Mozart can be played in the four most common clefs, Alto, Bass, Tenor and Treble. These can be used in all 12 major and minor key signatures. Left-handed players may want to have the stringed instruments display invertedly with the left-handed option. In Training Mode an instrument's position can be pre-defined before starting a new game. Positions remain static throughout the game in Training Mode and an additional option exists to slow down note streaming by 50%. Scores obtained in Training Mode are not eligible for the leader-board in order to preserve the competitive nature of the game.



Designed for the beginning musician as well as the professional, Mozart is an excellent tool towards better reading in 12 minor and major keys, practicing Solfege, unfamiliar keys, clefs or just to have fun while learning. Guitarists will find the Training Mode a valuable tool to study unfamiliar positions or maybe explore new open tunings. Pianists may want to improve on bass clef reading and the upper levels of the game are challenging for the most advanced musician with double-flats, double-sharps and occasional key signature switch.
