Found Bug while practicing

I love this app. It helps my daughter practice on her own and help to understand which song the teacher wants to practice right in the app. However my daughter found the bug and tricked the system. She turned the music on from teacher and at the same time hit practice. It should stop all music that is played by the app or by the phone and listening from outside sound instead but it didn’t . So basically she re-record the songs that the teacher recorded. It would be great if you can fix the problem

So many problems

I was really wanting to like this app. It’s so full of problems, and every time I contact customer support, they want me to spend 30 minutes explaining every detail of the problem to them. I’ve asked for a refund for many weeks now, and they just keep ignoring the problem and making me prove every problem. The app crashes, recordings don’t load, recordings are of bad sound quality (despite my use of a $250 Blue Yeti mic), the sound files are empty, the compare recordings frustrate students by always giving Ds or Fs, the practice time doesn’t record, and now my assignment changes aren’t saving. Literally NO feature works on this app. The problem is, I’ve got several hundred recordings in the app that I now have to download to my PC in order to quit my $25 subscription before I can quit! Oh! And the downloading to my own PC wasn’t working, so I had to beg for an in-person conversation with Tonara just to prove to them this wasn’t working. They did help me figure it out, but it took more than a month for them to give me some help. Tech support is HORRIBLE. All you can do is “text Lily,” and you get no answer to your questions/problems. After 24 hours, she answers you by asking another question. These people don’t know what they are doing. They are taking money from teachers during an already difficult time and NOT providing any of the services that are promised. And when you have a problem, they turn around and blame you for it.

Very happy pianist ,

Amazing!!! Game changer for piano practicing!

I have been playing piano for 6 years now. When I started, I was always motivated to practice. In the last two years or so though, I have gotten quite lazy with practicing. I never really found myself to have time or the focus. I could pick up songs very easily and I would only have to practice each song once or twice which was way under the practice time my teacher recommended. Then, my studio switched to Tonara. My opinion on practicing change completely. My teacher can assign me things to do and I can easily access it on my phone. It is very convenient that I can click on the assignment, read, and start practicing all through the app. The timer is very convenient. I like the option to record during my practice so I can show my progress to others. Can also communicate with my piano teacher through the app. And the best part… you get to earn points and compete against the other people in my studio. I can use my competitive nature to play piano. Thanks Tonara!
