Music Theory Quiz Page
Welcome to our music theory quiz page, where you can test yourself online on many different music theory topics!
Please note, I began creating these quizzes many years ago, when Flash was still popular, so some of the older ones built in Flash will, unfortunately not work on modern mobile devices (but should be fine on your computer if you have flash installed). These quizzes are marked [Flash].
The other quizzes are mostly built in HTML5 which should be compatible with any device, unless you have a very old computer!
If you experience a problem with any quiz, please let me know!
