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 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
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! 💖🎶☺️
This app works really well, I never run into issues with it. Well worth the money for the subscription.
Appcompanist is incredibly useful and user-friendly! Every feature is conceived with the singer and teacher in mind—including variable tempo, key, fermata, melody slider, and new tools to cut and edit excerpts. All of these fancy features would be pointless if there was not an extensive repertoire library with thousands of classical and music theater songs played by professional collaborative pianists. As a voice teacher and singer, I use Appcompanist daily in the studio. Much of the standard classical repertoire and standard-to-new musical theatre rep is available. It is especially helpful for contemporary music theater songs like “Waving Through A Window”. I’m a decent pianist, but I can’t play that! In preparing for my own performances, I was delighted to find the entire Bernstein song cycle, “I Hate Music!”. I’ve sung it before and am relearning it for a Bernstein at 100 concert. It’s very tricky! By the time I rehearse with my live accompanist, I will have solidly prepared thanks to Appcompanist. Whatever sorcerery created this digital magic, I thank you!
As a music educator who isn’t the best at piano, this app has been a lifesaver! Not only do I use it for myself, but I use it for my students who also love it!
This app is by far the best app for classical singers as well as musical theater singers. I have never seen an app or website or anything like this. It’s truly amazing. It has all the literature, the arias, the oratorio stuff. Everything from The Vagabond to Deh Viene alla Finestra! Wonderful app.
What a dream come true!!!!I’m so thankful for this app. As a voice teacher this app has significantly simplified my teaching. Thank you a thousand times over for creating this marvelous tool. 🙏👌👏👍
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.
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!
