Capo helps you learn to play the music in your iPod library. By slowing down the music without affecting its pitch, you can learn to play it slowly, and then speed it up as you improve. You can drop markers at key points in the song, and set loop points to repeat them. In addition to letting you choose songs from your iPod library, Capo will let you quickly add the currently-playing song from your iPod, placing the cursor right where you left off listening.
We have often been asked by teachers for a small poster of the Circle of Fifths that they can hang up in a teaching studio or give to students to keep in the front of their music folders. Unfortunately, it has been difficult to find a product from our vendors that has the neccesary information without getting cluttered or too busy.
So, as a service to our teachers and students, we are now printing our own complimentary Circle of Fifths charts. The file we are using is non-copyrighted, so you are free to make copies as needed. You can pick them up on cardstock the next time you visit us, or follow this link to print them from home. We hope this becomes a helpful resource for you.
