This game puts the primary focus on listening. The visual presentation is simple, the animations are limited to those necessary to support the flow of the game so that they do not cause unnecessary distraction.

By ear, a scale can be built up and listened to. Only when this is successful will the note names appear on the screen.
Music Scales start screen
The game starts with 8 birds sitting on a branch, each with its own unique tone. Tap on their tail to sound this tone.

Slide all birds to the right place in the tree, build the scale from the bottom to the top of the tree, and check the result with the Play all button !

Once all the birds have been placed in the tree, the Play all button gives feedback after playing: is this the correct scale or should you listen carefully once more ?
