String Players: Check This Out!

Recommended by Roy Ernst, founder New Horizons Music

I usually don’t make recommendations, but I want to be sure that you know about this. Using an app called Sit-ins, you can play your part with a professional string quartet.

If you’re a violist, for example, you can turn off the viola part and play with the rest of the quartet. Or, you can play along with the pro violist to be sure you have it right.

Right now this is only available for strings, but I hope that they will be adding wind groups. In order to enjoy this, it should sound like the quartet is right in the room with you, so get a good speaker or use good headphones.

The website is www. Sit-ins.com. According to the website, repertoire includes over 100 classical string quartet and duet movements, from beginner to expert.

The app is only available on the iPad.

A subscription costs $56.99/year or $6.99/month. You can try it out with a limited quartet for free.
