Music education company Trala raises $6.9 million

  • Music education app company Trala had raised $6.9 million. These are the details.

Trala – a music education app allowing students to learn the violin at any age – recently announced that it has closed a new round of funding. This funding round brings Trala’s total funding to $6.9 million with participation from executives from Coinbase, LinkedIn, Airbnb, Apple Ads, Doordash, the Seattle Symphony and VMWare.

Over the past 3 years, Trala has been downloaded by over 400,000 people in 193 countries. And this funding round follows a groundbreaking partnership with world-renowned violinist Joshua Bell and enables Trala to continue making music education accessible to everyone on Earth.

When students download Trala, they are matched with the best violin teacher based on their age, skill level, and goals. And between online violin lessons, students work on the world’s largest library of violin videos and interactive scores. Plus, Trala’s proprietary signal processing algorithms additionally give students instant pitch and rhythm feedback every time they practice.

Backed by tech visionaries like Duolingo CEO Luis von Ahn and artists like Joshua Bell, Trala is now getting the support it needs to build the future of music education.


“We are building Trala because we believe everyone should have access to the gift of making music. This support shows us that the music education industry can and will evolve with the times. This new funding means we can continue to refine Trala’s curriculum and technology to enable anyone, at any age, to learn to play an instrument.

— Sam Walder, CEO and co-founder of Trala
