What our users are saying

Artusi is a game-changer for those who are learning music theory for the first time. Being able to get instantaneous feedback while doing theory exercises is extremely invigorating and liberating. Doing exercises on Artusi is more addictive than playing Candy Crush—and you’ll learn more music theory doing so!

– Hubert Ho

Associate Teaching Professor, Northeastern University

Artusi is an excellent tutor that quickly rewards the fast-moving students and is infinitely patient with those having difficulties. With Artusi, students can practice at their own pace, on any device. My students are progressing faster with Artusi.

– Sebastian Birch

Associate Professor of Music, Kent State University Stark

Artusi freed up time for me and my TAs to focus on the musical and the exceptional. The final composition projects were the best I have seen, and some were exceptionally fine. I attribute this to the shift of focus that Artusi enabled.

– Matthew Barnson

Associate Professor of Composition, Stony Brook University

I plan to continue using Artusi even after we go back to in-person teaching. The aural component is a real plus for students doing theory exercises. Artusi has been a lifesaver for my classes!

– Paula Telesco

UMass Lowell

Artusi saves me time while improving the students' learning experience. I particularly like the counterpoint and part writing assignments. It is incredibly customizable from the rules applied to the chords provided. Artusi’s support has been fantastic as well.

The customer support was exceptional, my students enjoyed practicing and learning with it, and I'll use Artusi again.

– Jeff Forehan

The majority of my students' assignments are now in Artusi. They don't have printers, but they do have access to a computer, or a tablet, or a phone, so they have the ability to use Artusi.

– Terrance Evans

Professor of Music, Tougaloo College

Not only is the content exceptional, but your customer service is, too. Thank you for your hard work, and for giving us Artusi! It is a top-notch tool for our high school students. Simply put: Our kids love Artusi!
