We’ll match you with the right teacher, someone who understands your goals and makes you actually want to practice. Online lessons let you squeeze in violin between meetings, after school, or when the family has gone to bed.
Trala uses signal processing, groundbreaking technology that analyzes the sound of your violin and gives you instant feedback on pitch and rhythm every time you practice. When you play the wrong notes, we’ll help you get back on track.
Learn violin by playing the music you love - whether that’s Britney (Spears), Bluegrass, or (Bela) Bartok. Stay motivated with the world’s largest library of violin videos and exercises featuring folks like Katie Jacoby (The Who) and Kiana June Weber.
Joshua Bell, the GRAMMY® Award-winning violinist, sets the standard for instruction at Trala. He’s actively shaping Trala’s curriculum and recording a series of behind-the-scenes videos while on tour to share advice and inspiration with Trala students. We’re a little star struck, but trying to play it cool.
As a nurse, my life can get stressful. Learning violin for the first time has allowed me to make a personal commitment to myself every day. It’s nice to not have all of my self-worth wrapped up in a job.”
- Kassandra, Trala violin student
I'm often asked by grown-ups if it is too late for them to take up violin lessons. I have always said 'It's never too late!', but now I can tell them 'You gotta check out Trala!' I'm convinced now that the music education industry could be significantly strengthened if we served adults and people of all geographic backgrounds with the same resources we bring to schoolchildren.”
