Research shows that shorter, more consistent practice sessions yield better results than longer, but more spaced out sessions. Practicing 5-10 minutes every day will help you progress faster than – for example – two hours-long sessions days apart.
To help with your consistent practice, we set you a Daily Goal of 5 minutes. Meet your goal on consecutive days, and you’ll start streaking.
The first streak you’ll reach is the 3 day streak, then 5, 7, and 10… how long can you keep it up for? How long do they keep going? It’ll take you years to find out ’ and many Melodics musicians have!
Watch the progress bar above your next streak target to see how far to go. Keep it up!
In Melodics you learn by doing – by playing lessons you’re introduced to important musical concepts and ideas, but how do you know what you’ve learned?
In various lessons throughout Melodics, you can discover and collect Records by passing the lesson. Each Record summarises one of these musical ideas, and earning one shows that you’ve applied it in a real-world “playing music” scenario. By completing Record collections you know that you’ve got a good working knowledge of the broader concept.
This means you can earn a record in this lesson.

Visit the progress section to view your collection.
Click on a collection to view videos covering the skills & techniques you’ve learned.
Records aren’t a roadmap — they’re milestones you pass when you first learn by doing. Spending the time deep diving and revisiting lessons locks in new knowledge by providing a meaningful context, and brings a greater sense of achievement for when you do collect a new Record.
Visit the Progress section in Melodics to measure your musical growth as you build your collection. Here you can track your progress and view all the Records you’ve collected (and those still waiting), read more about each concept, and watch videos demonstrating how they work.
You’ll note that there is no search filter currently to find lessons containing Records.
Why? To make it worthwhile for you!
In a world where practice makes perfect, there’s no fast-tracking your progress. Records are milestones which track and measure your growing musical ability — but not a roadmap to navigate by. To celebrate your success, we’ve made it so that Records acknowledge that your growth was hard earned, rather than easily found.
To see all Melodics Records that you do have (and those you still need to collect), go to the ‘Progress’ section in the Melodics app and click on the ‘Records’ tab.
Earning at least 3-stars on a lesson which contains a Record icon allows you to add it to your collection.
Any time you use Melodics to practice, you’re developing core skills like rhythm, timing, dexterity and training your muscle memory. But you’re also always learning how music works simply by engaging: listening and playing along.
With Records, you complete the puzzle: actually explaining which specific tenets of music you’ve learned.
Records deliberately still follows a “learning by doing path” — you get context by performing and perfecting the lesson first prior to earning the Record and receiving an explanation.
Records are individual milestones of musical concepts and theories. When you browse Records (in the ‘Progress’ section of the app), you’ll find explanations and video break-downs of each when you click any Record in the collection.
With Melodics, you’ll still learn by doing. That’s why you’ll find Records spread across a variety of different lessons from countless genres, instruments and skill levels. To ensure you’ll have a complete understanding.
Each Record you earn for your collection is proof you have learned a recognisable musical skill, concept, theory or methodology which translates to real-life playing ability. Completing record collections is a testament of your continued musical progress, and a way to ensure your practice routine has purpose, and valuable outcomes.
