Cadenza was featured by Apple as "Best New App" in fall 2015.
Our apps make music fun and immersive, like playing with a real band.
Imagine playing basketball alone your whole life and never getting to play on a team. That’s the reality for most people who play instruments and sing. People need to hear and interact with all the parts of the music in order to get the real experience. But they rarely can because it costs $50 an hour to play with one other person.
We’ve developed the only solution that takes recorded music to the next level -- giving you a personalized "live" band or orchestra.
Our first app, Cadenza,… · More enables you to practice your instrument with a full orchestra. The orchestra listens to you and adapts to your tempo in real time, allowing you to improve your expressiveness and musicality. In the future, we will expand into singing, many styles of music, and user-generated content.

BECOME A BETTER MUSICIAN
When you hear all the parts, you develop a deeper understanding, build greater confidence, and perform better. Of course, you also enjoy playing your instrument more, too!
Cadenza follows *you* (and not the other way around). So, you can try different ideas and see what it's like to create a give-and-take musical conversation.
Playing with Cadenza each day is one of the best ways to make practicing music more fun—and productive.
Train Cadenza by recording yourself and then telling Cadenza to play like that next time.
