How much does Chordify cost?

Chordify is free to download on iOS and Android devices. With a ‘premium’ subscription for $4,99 per month you can gain ad free, unlimited access to songs along with access to a range of ways to personalise the tracks e.g. transpose, change the tempo, create setlists to organise songs and more.

Is it good for learning?

Chordify develops the players ability to play chords in time to the actual song. By using the metronome the user can play at a slower speed and gradually increase it as they develop their chord changing technique. The user can play with increasing confidence by gradually reducing the volume of the chord sounds and metronome as they become more familiar with a particular track. Chordify expands the learner’s repertoire with its endless library of songs and the ‘discover’ section introduces trending artists and currently popular songs in the Chordify community.

What we like about Chordify?

Thanks to Chordify’s unique algorithm, users can find the chords for any song of their choice, even the most obscure songs. The algorithm recognises any audio file and calculates the chords in a split second aligning them to the music in a clear and straightforward player. The ability to find the chords for any song you wish to play is something that all music learner’s want. The ‘Discover’ section which provides songs for chords of your choice is an excellent way to help students practice playing newly learned chords in the context of the music that they like to hear.

It is one of our recommended apps to learn music.

What is Chordify?

The ‘discover’ section of the app allows the user to select chords that they can play or wish to practice and the app will then find them songs that use these chords. Each of the play along chord videos is synched with the original YouTube track from the artist which appears in the corner of the screen. There is the option to adjust the tempo of the track and volume of the metronome or chords sounds so that the learner can play the song at their own pace. The app is also available in seven languages that a user can switch between: English, Dutch, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese.

Benefits for Students

The Chordify app is useful in helping provide students with clear, customisable chord chart play along tracks for any song or chord selection that they wish to try. This could support work completed with a tutor by allowing the learner to rehearse chord changes learned in the context of different songs. The community area allows students to build a profile of their music, creating setlists and collecting badges to recognise their use of the app’s songs

Benefits for Teachers

Chordify will contribute to motivating the learner with music of their own choice and help support successful practice sessions between teacher led sessions.

Teachers can use Chordify in lessons to provide song backings and charts for students to play along to. These can be downloaded in PDF form and printed or used digitally. A huge time saver in finding song resources for lessons that can be transposed to the learner’s required key and introduced at slower speeds or with the loop section enabled to encouraged repetition of trickier parts.

Benefits for Parents

The Chordify app is a useful way of supporting home practice through providing access to any desired song. The learner’s playing is developed through the customisation options for tracks, enabling them to slow down the track and practice at their own pace. It allows parents to hear how the child's own chord part should sound and also how their playing fits with the overall track. This enables students to hear their playing within the context of the whole song.
