nSpire Me has launched Let’s Play Violin!, an interactive practice app which listens to and analyses children’s violin playing.
The first in a series of apps for different instruments and age groups, Let’s Play Violin! uses AI to provide young learners with feedback on their pitch and rhythm.
About Let’s Play Violin!
Let’s Play Violin! is designed to help children aged 6-11 get the most from their practice.
With instant feedback on pitching and timing, users can:
- practise on their own, with pre-recorded music or with a metronome
- record themselves and compare with a reference recording
The app is launching with Grades 1-3 exam pieces as well as pieces used in Suzuki 1-4.
