    I’m looking for an app for a metronome and tuner for cello students. Do you know of an app or other device? Thank you. LG

    Hi LG,

    We’ve mentioned Practice+ on this blog a few times. Their app comes with a tuner feature, although I don’t know if it will meet all your needs. Here’s their link: http://dynamicappdesign.com/practiceplus/.

    Also, here’s an informative blog post on another site that polled their reads and review the 5 most popular practice apps: http://www.bulletproofmusician.com/five-best-tuner-apps/.

    While our metronome feature does not include a tuner option, it may in the future. Our studio management software could do a lot to help manage your cello students. It’s Free to try for 30-days. Here’s a link if you’d like try it out: https://www.musicteachershelper.com/signup.

    Best of luck! And if you remember, come back here to the comments and let us know what tuner app or tool ended up working best for you! I know others will find it valuable.
