DanceMaster - An iOS Music Player That Helps You Rehearse Efficiently

San Francisco, California — March 27, 2015 — Independent developer David Starke is proud to announce the release of DanceMaster 2.0, a music player  designed for practicing, rehearsing, and teaching dance, available for iPhone®, iPod touch®, and iPad®.

DanceMaster is an easy-to-use music player designed for the unique needs of the rehearsal process. The app was designed in cooperation with professional dancers and instructors to help performers and instructors practice, memorize, and teach choreographies. In rehearsal, you frequently need to play the same section of music over and over, so every time you stop, DanceMaster automatically returns to the last place the music started— eliminating the frantic searching for the starting point of a section that takes up a surprising amount of time in many rehearsals. You can add and name cues in the music to mark important parts and easily jump to them at any time. DanceMaster helps you memorize choreographies by tracking choreography notes right along with the music, and you can easily share your work with with other faculty and students. Even adjust tempo on the fly. DanceMaster can also help you practice and memorize steps solo— by speaking cues aloud, reminding you what comes next.

DanceMaster Features:
* A simple, uncluttered interface
* Automatically returns to where you started every time you stop the music
* Live tempo adjustment
* Add and name cues to mark important sections of music, and jump to them at any time

* Sync your work across multiple devices with iCloud® syncing
* Controllable with any external remote control that is compatible with your device
