This is an excellent app.

I have been playing guitar my whole life. But I’ve always wanted to try something new. I’m in the military and stationed in a rather remote location in the United States. When a friend sold me his violin for cheap, I was looking everywhere for lessons. I even took out an add for an instructor on Craigslist, with no avail. I found Trala in the App Store and tried their 5 days free. It’s perfect for me. I can practice with it at any time. I don’t have travel for lessons, which I was prepared to do; and I’m paying a fraction of what I was willing to pay for lessons. I’d suggest trying the 5 day trial. Keep in mind, learning an instrument takes self-discipline. If you couple that with this app, you can’t go wrong.

Useful tool to add to your practice.

Cant say much about beginner lessons since I started at intermediate level. Anyway I have been playing around with this app for two days now. It is really fun and useful to add to your practice. The only reason I did not put five stars is because I think the description is a little misleading. It definitely does not replace a teacher even for those who use online teachers you definitely get more out of a live person on a video telling you how to do things properly. This app is great to keep intonation in check especially for those of us who practice on our own. I actually enjoyed practicing pieces already knew to check that I was playing them in tune then actually doing the lessons. Great boost of confidence. Some definite cons are the lessons are way too short, the sheet music for pieces does not have Bowing. I had to check with my regular sheet music for correct bowing. I also noticed that couple of the étude sheet music had wrong key and some of the half notes were not correct. So I had to play wrong notes in order to move on within the lesson.

It’s okay

Original rating {3 Stars}: Haven’t played the violin in some time. Decided the app would be a good way to help me get back on my feet. Downloaded the app. Got past the first lesson which took two minutes for me because I already knew what was going on but was a nice refresher. Now every time I click on the next lesson the entire app shuts down and boots me out to my home screen. I’ve tried shutting off my phone, I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled, I’ve reached out to tech support. It’s such a shame, I was so excited to finally get a violin app. Sigh.

UPDATE: Staff did respond within 24 hours. They mentioned the update will fix the issue of users getting booted from the app. That being said, I wish there was a way to set the tempo while practicing. I’d also love to see an option to use a metronome. After all, using a metronome is one of the commandments in the Trala bible lol.... Hopefully with time the library will include popular songs on the radio, or number one hits, as well as the classical stuff.

I will continue to my review as necessary.

We screwed up--the newest version (2.8.0) has it all fixed! I think we talked within the app already, but just following up :)
