About

Trala is a tech-powered online music school headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. Founded in 2017, our mission is to make world-class music education accessible to every single person on Earth.

For most of the world, accessible, affordable music lessons are hard to come by. In the next 20 years, over a billion people will pick up an instrument for the first time. Imagine if every single one of them could become the musician they want to be. That’s the future we’re obsessed with realizing.

With over 400,000 downloads and violin students in 193+ countries, Trala has received support from top musicians and investors at Duolingo and LinkedIn. Trala violin students are surgeons, moms, graphic designers, truck drivers, grandparents, middle schoolers, martial arts teachers, and CEOs. They live and make music in rural Montana, Beirut, Juneau, Perth, and our hometown of Chicago.
