How can I use Cello Practice Partner?
Cello Practice Partner lets you play along with real musicians’ performances, exactly as recorded or at a reduced tempo. The app will help you to:
- Become familiar with the accompaniment and understand how the solo line fits with the piano part for more secure performances. Never miss a cue again!
- Slow down or speed up the music to a tempo that suits you, for slow careful practice.
- Listen closely to the Cello in isolation to hear every detail of the expert performance.
- Repeat tricky passages by setting loops around them.
