This app is absolutely amazing, not only does it show you the sheet music for the songs but it also give you what they sound like and your finger positions on the strings. Not only that but you can buy a ton of classical and modern songs to learn after you have mastered the basic ones that come with the app. This app is absolutely stellar and as a beginner violinist it is very helpful. … Great app. Get it, use it, find out for yourself. – Trixtan
This app is a great tool for school music labs. Each child can sing the song using solfege, pluck the notes on their violin, and then bring in the bow and play along. Train the ear, train the memory, train the muscles. – Music Lab teacher
My son needs to practice his violin daily and this app is great for giving him feedback and a variety of songs to practice his notes.– runawaybunny
This app is too good to be true. The scale is worth its weight in gold, especially if one doesn’t have a developed sense of tone or access to a musical scale. The feedback is immediate which is by far the best way to learn. My iPad is hard to put down!– Big-Jay1864
