Not what I thought

I have played Trombone for 14 years, but recent years I have let it take a back seat. I thought this app would be good to help me get back to where I was, and I think it will be. The only problem is that it is not a good app to teach you how to play. It is a good app if you already know how to play. So I would recommend this only if you, like me, are trying to get back into the swing of things, or you are looking for supplemental material to work from in between lessons.

Update: The developer contacted me and said that they are working on learning features! So while I wait, I’ll go through the campaign with what I have and have a good time with my music!!

Hi, thank you for your review. Good news: We’re already working on a learning feature with explanations and exercises. It’s already available for flute, saxophone, clarinet and trumpet and we plan to add an updated version also for the trombone. -Mari

Great support.

I was enjoying the app immensely for about nine months and then it suddenly stopped working on my iPad. It continue to work fine on my iPhone. When I contacted support, they diagnosed the problem. My iPad, being a 2018 model, had an old version of iOS which I couldn’t update further. So they quickly came out with a fix. In about a week it was up and operating again on my iPad. This was great diagnosis and quick turnaround from the coders. Thanks for the support!

Great App to learn how to play, but they keep making changes

This has been a great app to use to get back into playing the Trumpet. My main complaint is that rather than just adding content, they keep bouncing back an forth between what they offer. Original they had a good song progression path. Then they suddenly removed it and put in a lesson progression. This really through me off, but it did force me to go back to basics—which is good. However, as soon as I got used to that and started enjoying it, they switched back to what they had before —throwing me off again. If they would keep both, this app would be amazing. If they would add content and not take stuff off, it would be amazing!

Hi, thank you for your review! Great that you like practicing the trumpet with our app. We want to improve the learning experience with tonestro, that's why we've delevoped a whole new learning path for trumpet. The songs of the previous campaign path will be transferred to the Songs section. We would appreciate your feedback on the new learning path and would be happy if you contact us via - Thanks, Mari
