Helps Motivate Students
Tonic Tutor has 5 different ways to reward progress and encourage students to improve their music skills, keeping them engaged.
Teachers and students can send messages back and forth on Tonic Tutor. Want to message a group of students at once about something? It's easy!
It's easy to get started using our presets, but you have the ability to customize and tailor lessons for specific students and groups.
Organizes Your Thoughts
Lesson Notes enable you to keep a record of thoughts and ideas about a student or group that you can refer back to later.
Over 40 Music Games
Each game has customizable settings that give you fine grained control over the specific skills you want to target. Best of all, they're not boring drills – they're crafted to be fun and engaging.
Covering all three musical food groups
Our diverse group of ear training games focuses on Intervals, Melodies, Scales, Chords and Rhythm over a wide range of levels.
This group of games focuses on three different approaches: learning to identify Individual Pitches, Intervallic Reading, and reading short Melodies and Chords.
Our theory games focus on rudiments: Terms and Signs, Pitch Identification, Intervals, Key Signatures, Time Signatures, and more.
5 Ways to Motivate Students
Learning is its own reward, but that doesn't mean making learning fun and rewarding student progress doesn't have a huge impact. Tonic Tutor has multiple reward systems that maximize student engagement.
A virtual smorgasbord of rewards
A little bit of friendly competition between your students can be a powerful motivator. Create a contest: students can win a medal based on their rank: gold, silver, broneze, or participation.
Set a score target for a game and the number of times a student must reach it and Tonic Tutor will track the students progress and give them feedback about the goal after each game they play.
You have full control over how report cards are generated. Select the time range, the games, add a sticker or positive message – you can even filter out low scores to make sure the report card isn't discouraging.
Over 10,000 colourful virtual stickers that students can choose from. Stickers are the perfect way to reward student effort, and students are always excited to get them and pick the perfect sticker.
Students have the option to continue playing games to earn achievements after their weekly lesson is completed. Each game has awards based on various criteria that are tracked over time.
What teachers and students are saying
“ I have a transfer student who is doing very well now with Tonic Tutor. One day she asked me to add Blobs (a chord recognition game) to her "lesson games" as she really enjoys the game. Later on, I noticed her scores were always 100% on Blobs. I decided to add in the dominant seventh and diminished seventh chords. She sent me a message via Tonic Tutor – wondering what those extra chords were. We discussed them at her lesson and voila – a grade one student is now listening to and recognizing major, minor, diminished and dominant seventh chords! Imagine how much easier it will be for her to play them in the grades to come, as she is already listening to and recognizing them! Tonic Tutor is brilliant in helping them develop their ear! ”
“ Tonic Tutor has been my best discovery for computer based learning. All my students have improved in their note reading and intervalic reading. They also understand the circle of 5ths much better. This is a fabulous interactive program which has inspired even the weakest students. I also love how it encourages all the listening skills required for Conservatory exams!! It has also become a great mid-week communication tool between students and myself via the message options. ”
