Tonara Motivates Music Students

Finding the motivation to sit down and practice music can be tedious and tiresome for students, especially the younger ones. We are here to help change all of that, and to help music students get to the real joy of making progress, and making music.

We’ve packed Tonara Studio with features and benefits for students that makes practicing more fun, more engaging, and overall, effective. Students that can see and feel their progress are more likely to stick with it and learn for longer.

Tonara teachers report an increase of over 68% in average practice time since they have started using Tonara.

The Student Experience with Tonara Studio


Students earn points the more they practice and can climb the leaderboard. Plus, the more assignments they complete the more stickers they unlock!


Unique, patented AI technology that listens to the student playing, compares it to the teacher’s recording, and provides real-time feedback.


Students can connect with their teacher and fellow students, celebrate musical milestones together, and exchange fun stickers and encouraging notes.

  • Engage

    When teachers are able to interact and engage with their students’ in-between lessons, students are more likely to practice at home.

    Detailed assignments combined with a regular communication, method encourage students to practice, and enables them to check in if they have a practice related question.

  • Listens & Get Feedback

    Using the ‘Compare Recording’ Assignment, our patent AI technology will compare the students playing to a pre-recorded piece.

    Tonara will then provide the student with real-time feedback on their fluency, pitch, rhythm, and tempo. They can then share their progress, get feedback, and continue to improve until their next lesson.

  • Gamification

    Because who doesn’t love rewards? The more students practice, the more points they can earn to reach higher XP levels, unlock stickers, and climb the global leaderboard.

    Our AI knows when a student is actually playing, and when they are running the clock. This helps to instantly reward students for their efforts, while the long term gains happen gradually.

  • Communication

    Communication is one of the keys to success, and that’s why we’ve invested in creating many ways for teachers, students, and parents to communicate with one another. Making music-practice fun doesn’t come on its own, and sometimes requires the assistance of rewards, stickers, and a community to encourage one another.

    That’s why we’ve invested our time in bringing a practice experience with unique stickers, a cool rewards system, and groups for teachers and students to talk with another for encouragement and share their accomplishments.
