Music education app Trala partners with superstar violinist Joshua Bell
Trala, a technology-based music education app designed to make violin learning accessible to everyone, announces an ongoing partnership with GRAMMY Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell. To celebrate this dynamic partnership, Bell will perform at Trala’s NYC Conference at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music on September 29. Bell is represented by Park Avenue Artists (PAA), which facilitated Bell’s partnership with Trala. PAA will act as a strategic advisor and partner alongside Bell and Trala to advance Trala’s mission and develop its program.
Over the past 3 years, Trala has received over 400,000 downloads, students in 193 countries, and CEO funding at LinkedIn and Duolingo. The majority of Trala’s students are adults, many of whom are learning the violin for the first time. When students download Trala, they are matched with the best violin teacher for their age, skill level, and unique goals. Between private online lessons, students receive instant feedback on how they sound – namely pitch and rhythm – thanks to proprietary signal processing invented by the co-founders of Trala. Trala students also have access to the world’s largest library of violin videos and exercises, group lessons and performances, and interactive sheet music. In addition to shaping the curriculum and the student experience at Trala, Bell is recording a series of behind-the-scenes videos while on tour to share his advice and inspiration with the students at Trala.
As a permanent advisor to Trala, Bell sets the standard for education at Trala and ensures that students have access to the highest quality violin program in the world. “For most violinists, mentoring Joshua would be an experience you will never forget. As part of our accessibility mission, we want to bring this experience to every student at Trala,” said Sam Walder, CEO and co-founder of Trala.
Trala and Bell combine their passions for accessible education to teach this next generation of violinists. “Thanks to Trala, the future of music education is brighter than ever,” says Bell. “I am so excited to team up with Trala to help bring the joy of making music to students young and old, in all corners of the world.”
Trala’s mission is to make world-class music education accessible to everyone. To join the Trala School of Music, download the Trala application from Google Play or App Store. For more information on Trala, visit trala.com.
