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

Over the past 3 years, Trala was downloaded by 400,000+ people from 193 countries. And this funding round comes on the heels of a groundbreaking partnership with the world-famous 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 for their age, skill level, and goals. And in between online violin lessons, students work through the world’s largest library of violin videos and interactive sheet music. Plus Trala’s proprietary signal processing algorithms additionally give students instant feedback on pitch and rhythm every time they practice.

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


“We’re building Trala because we believe that 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 that we can continue to refine Trala’s curriculum and technology to empower anyone, at any age, to learn to play an instrument.”

— Sam Walder, CEO and co-founder of Trala
