    The application Tonal Harmony Analysis provides users with the opportunity to input a range of different chords, and identify the suitability of the chord progressions. It provides users with the analysis of each chord progression, offering a range of different options and choices. The app would analyse each option, and identify whether the options worked with different harmonic analysis rules. It can identify potential issues, and explain them, so that you can make a more suitable choice. This is an excellent app, particularly for A Level students, who have a huge amount of rules to learn, and this can be very difficult to teach without the students losing their creativity and musicality.
