Due to health issues, I wasn’t able to follow the community within the last weeks, so I’m a little late. Thanks a lot for the complementation of Grade 3 to the app and thanks for the ongoing efforts to make the app a even better experience for users. I’m currently consolidating Grade 2 and still using the app (song work). I still get a lot of benefit out of it, a great tool to get a feeling for the rhythm and timing of a song. I don’t see the app as training wheels that should be screwed off after Grade 2… for me it’s a great starting point to get the basic structure and tempo of a song, before playing it without support. Hopefully some more songs for Grade 3 will be added in the near future!

Not sure if it’s a bug, but I don’t see any practice routines showing for grade 3 (on iPad). There is for instance ‘Module 15 practice routine’ but it is just a video, without the actual practice section like in previous modules.

This is a deliberate omission. As I understand it, the thinking is that by Grade 3 students should be able to focus on their own specific musical interests and weaknesses, and come up with their own practice routines.

Speaking for myself, I miss the structure of the earlier grades…but I guess we all have to leave the nest sometime.

Also, check out the same grade 3 lessons on the website…I think I saw some suggested routines over there…maybe in the Notes section under the lesson video.

Ah right. I was a bit confused, as the grade 3 lessons on the website have a set practice routine still like the previous grades, with the ability to add the routine to the website practice tracker.

You are correct…it took me a while to find it…but it’s there on the website, as you say.

I never liked the Practice tool on the website, and still don’t. The simpler approach taken with the App “just worked” for me. Though I know there are many here who have the opposite opinion.

So I don’t know why it’s not in the App…seems like an unfortunate omission.

@MusopiaApps any explanation?

We are looking to add this to the Grade 3 section of the app very soon and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by its omission at this moment in time :slight_smile:
