Practica Musica, Ars Nova's award-winning music theory and ear training software, is the new standard for music education software!

Practica Musica features fully customizable learning activities that meet a wide variety of needs, from beginning students to advanced theory and ear training. Practica Musica 4 works with or without MIDI (use the screen piano or use the computer's letter keys as a piano), but it is now compatible with USB MIDI on the Macintosh, as well as QuickTime Instruments and built-in sampled sounds. The Macintosh version supports OMS, FreeMIDI, and MIDI Manager via QuickTime; the Windows version supports sampled sounds, MIDI and internal synthesizer sounds as per the capabilities of your sound card.

The included textbook "Exploring Theory with Practica Musica" (Evans) is coordinated with the program, which includes special activities to go with the textbook and players that perform the music examples in the book. "Exploring Theory..." also includes tear-out written exercises and a section of class music for those using the program in school.

Users can choose which activities are included, can edit existing ones or create new ones, and can download activities from Ars Nova's web site. New writing tools let students create their own music on single or multiple staves, hear it, save it, and print it. The software includes 4 user files for personal scorekeeping and one instructor file that also can be used for scorekeeping.

Activities included with version 4 range from rhythm tapping and simple pitch reading and sightreading of melody, to melodic dictation in 1, 2, or 4 parts, chord progression ear training, and tranposition exercises. Here are some of the activities currently offered:
