“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


“One of the biggest plusses for me is how customizable the program is—I have been able to create exercises to track with the textbook I use, which is critically important. I am also grateful for how supportive the Artusi team is. From the beginning they have answered all my emails quickly, and held Zoom meetings to bring instructors together to discuss what they are doing and what their challenges are. 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. And, now that I’ve created so many of my own exercises, Artusi is simply more efficient. If I decide I need to tweak something, it’s easy to do. Artusi has been a lifesaver for my classes!

— Paula Telesco, Associate Professor, University of Massachusetts, Lowell


Artusi did everything I needed and I was able to customize the exercises to reflect exactly what I wanted them to work on and learn.”

— Thomas Cody, Instructor of Music Theory, Penn State University


“I originally adopted Artusi to solve the practical problems of grading assignments online during the pandemic. This is a great reason to adopt it but it offered so much more. My students, digital natives, loved Artusi! Quick students get through the exercises even quicker, while students that struggled get lots of practice and got a lot better at the mechanics of voice-leading without the dread of it showing up on my desk filled with the same mistakes. By handling the mundane and mechanical in a game-like fashion, 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


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. My piano classes actually ended up using it as well to keep their theory skills sharp. Now I’m having them do Playing Melodies exercises for sight-reading.”

— Terrance Evans, Professor of Music, Tougaloo College


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

— Jeff Forehan, Director of Commercial Music, West Valley College


Many thanks for this great music learning platform! Most effective I’ve used, and the students are making great progress in a broad sense. It really helps me fill in the gaps in their learning!”

— Christian M. Newman, Lecturer, University of New Mexico


“In my undergraduate studies, I trained with MacGAMUT dictation, so I’ve been amazed to witness its evolution into the modern Artusi. Now as a cloud-based platform, Artusi provides curriculum augmentation, part writing, and ear training—and it’s user friendly on 1:1 student devices. I turned to Artusi during COVID-19 as an initial tool for at-home student learners. Now, Artusi will remain in our classroom for Music Theory I and AP Music Theory. I am so pleased with the real-time interactive feedback for students, the online grade book, and the choice of rigor that is topic appropriate—the depth of training is nothing short of a game changer. 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!

— DJ Alstadt, Director of Bands, Naperville Central High School
