Get Started with Trala
Step 1: Choose a lesson
You can start at Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced levels. Lessons typically consist of tuning, then playing a scale, an etude, and a song. Play a lesson every day to keep your streak going! We highly reward Trala violinists who have high streaks.
Step 2: Learn the basics!
Don't know anything at all? No problem! Progress through our tutorial videos and beginner's lessons to learn how to play beautifully and in tune.
Step 3: Play and get instant feedback!
First, listen to how the piece is supposed to sound. Then it's your turn! Trala listens to you play your real violin and gives you instant feedback in the form of red arrows to help you fix your mistakes. Up arrows mean you're too flat. Down arrows mean you're too sharp. Left arrows mean play slower. Right arrows mean play faster.
Step 4: Improve and move on!
Play the 2-measure phrase perfectly or fill up the progress bars to move on to the next section. Trala won't let you move on until you play correctly.
