“My ten-year-old just inherited a used violin. He played Hot Cross Buns after learning two basic notes and that inspired a confidence to continue on with this lessons. A brilliant app for violin players.”
— MillaP226 (Trala subscriber)

“This app makes it much easier for me to practice now that I can actually hear what I’m about to play and get live feedback. The daily reminders help me stay dedicated. I told all my violin friends in orchestra to download this app.”

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 :)

Great concept horrible delivery

I’m a beginner and started at the beginning, as one does. The problem I have is the tuning, I have a tuner attached to my violin, it says the notes (open strings) are perfectly tuned (within reason), but the app thinks it knows better and will not let you advance until you hit their note. I have learned several instruments before and learning the fingering is more important than perfect form or delivery, but this app seems to disagree. I find myself sitting their plucking the same string just to get pasted the stupid ‘missed note’. Also say I am playing two D’s in a row, the first goes off no hitch, then without moving anything I go to play the second and it has me move my finger. If they say it’s a tempo thing then why does it stop scrolling all together, and completely disregarding the tempo? It would be better if it let you play all the way through then have you a grade at the end. Stopping every few seconds because of fat fingers and poor beginner technique is counter productive. If a band is playing a song and the guitar misses a beat or note does everyone stop and repeat the note till it’s perfect? Or do they move on and keep improving?

Thanks for taking the time to write this all out. I'll think about a tempo-first grading system.
