Great app, great company
As a voice teacher and singing professional, when I heard about this app, I subscribed to it right away (for short term use). I quickly realized how wonderful this is for a voice teacher who, with decent, but not concert abilities, plays piano for my students lessons, which locks me at the piano, or else I’d need to hire a pianist, which isn’t financially feasible for the student base I have. From the inception of this app, it has slowly grown in its rep list, the ability to stop/start, change keys, etc is fabulous. I’ve really appreciated that the company WANTS to make it better. Anytime I’ve found an issue, I’ve brought it to their attention and they fix it and make changes. They are always listening to their subscribers because they want this to be something that is usable for a LONG time. And as a subscriber, I want this to be around for a LONG time too! Thank you, Appcompanist for trying to make our musical lives better.
I love this app!
I have been having so much fun singing with Appcompanist, it has helped renewed my joy in singing and my willingness to practice. Knowing that I have all the accompaniment for my songs PLUS melody track if needed, is awesome. Being able to change keys and tempo INSTANTLY is so cool and helpful. I am still learning how to use the fermata button, but I think it is so great that the feature is there. The catalogue of songs is extensive (opera art song, musicals, etc) and I emailed the developers to get some spirituals added particularly those by Moses Hogan. They were super responsive and helpful and they said they would prioritize adding those songs. The app sits on my iPhone, but once I connect my phone to an external speaker, it sounds like I have a pianist right in the room! I have been practicing with the app and I plan to perform with it this Sunday (10/29). I have been looking for something like this for a long time. Check it out, it rocks! Woo hoo!!
Admittedly I was on the fence due to the app not containing a good portion of recital rep that I needed. After an email exchange with the developers, I’m glad I decided to give it a chance. This app is fantastic and works as advertised, and is a perfect rehearsal tool for those of us that are keyboard challenged. In addition, I requested a number of songs be added a few weeks ago. I received notification from the app that new songs were added, and it was half of the songs I listed. Immediately after, I get an email from the developers telling me that they were added and that the rest of my requests would be taken care of within the week. AMAZING customer service, and worth every penny.
There needs to be some improvements...
I think that this app is cool but I feel there needs to be some additions to it 1. Add more music genres and songs. At auditions sometimes they want you to sing a specific genre and it would be nice to have more genres and more songs to be able to pick from and sing and I feel that it’s limited. 2. I think that if you want to buy the sheet music that you should and maybe only pay for the sheet music and have it play the song instead of a subscription. A lot of us go to school and I feel it’s a bit much with the amount for the subscription and even the 3.99 one is only for 6 songs. 3. Have an option to print out your sheet music and practice with the app for the song for your audition. I feel like many of us would like to have that option so that you can go back and practice parts of the song to improve on and have an accompanist to play the song. Thank you
Convenient and Wonderful
Can’t say enough about this app! I have a concert coming up and have had to learn some music quickly and don’t have a lot of time/money for a lot of coachings and rehearsals with a pianist. This has been a really easy tool that has helped me to not only learn a new piece at my pace, but to fully prepare myself for when I finally work on it with a coach or in rehearsal. Not only does this app help me save time and money, but it helps me learn the music accurately and effectively.
Excellent way to learn and practice new music
I bought this app at the recommendation of my voice teacher. This is a wonderful way to learn new music - and with accompaniment. I love the ability to change key - an excellent way to determine the best key for my voice. They are VERY accommodating. I requested they add 9 songs by Charles Ives that were not yet available. They replied that they would fulfill my request as soon as possible. Two weeks later all 9 were had been added!!
Worth every penny!
The subscription price may seem expensive, but when you consider what you would pay a rehearsal accompanist who could instantly transpose to any key, play the melody along with the full accompaniment anywhere between half and double time, you’re actually saving money or, at the very least, adding considerable value for learning and reviewing music. Thanks for a great app!
So excited about this!
This app has been working flawlessly for me. Have been exploring it all week. The pianists have done a first rate job with the very extensive repertoire. What an incredibly easy way to learn new songs. Like having a live-in accompanist. Thrilled that they are adding new pieces daily. A subscription to this service is well worth the price. Hooked up to my bluetooth speakers it sounds incredible.
I love using this app. It is like I have an accompanist I can carry around in my pocket and use at any time. I use it to sing through my favorite songs I already know, and find new songs with the extensive repertoire that I can easily sift through. Now there is no excuse for not practicing, and learning new rep has never been easier. Thank you for making this great app!
My piano skills aren’t fabulous to begin with and now I’m dealing with arthritis that’s making playing more than vocalise painful. The ability to isolate or layer the melody on the accompaniment, to change keys or tempo has just been great! Plus the support team is responsive; they’re always adding new material! For less than half the cost of one lesson per month, get it!
Yes, there’s a monthly fee(you might forget you’re paying for it), but the service is great. There’s an option to play just the melody or just the accompaniment, or a combination of the two. Also, I have not found one of my songs yet that is not on Appcompanist. Amazing job, thank you appcompanist.
Greatest Teaching Aid Ever!!!
Love love love this app. It has totally freed up teaching for me so I can focus on the student and not limping along on the accompaniment. I also contacted customer support about some songs that I frequently teach and the response from them was incredibly fast, helpful, and productive. Cannot say enough good things about this app.
Appcompanist Is Amazing!
Absolutely love this app! The freedom I have with the fermata button, tempo and key changes, the beautiful recordings, and the overall variety of repertoire make this app extremely unique and special! AND I love that it is accessible with VoiceOver! Perfect for both sighted and non-sighted singers! Can't wait to see what's next for this revolutionary app! 💖🎶☺️
I recently began a recurring gig with a chamber choir, with some solo work, and I perform in a lot of musical theater. This app is going to change my life for the better when it comes to rehearsal. It has wonderful, seamless functionality. It will not replace the accompanist for performances, but auditions and rehearsal just got a lot easier!
I asked and I received.
Appcompanist is a great practicing tool for young singers like myself, and for more seasoned ones as well. I am very happy with the app thus so far. Also I requested a song, and they did their best to put it up as fast as they could.
