Take7 is a music play-along app for aspiring musicians. Take7 gives you feedback on every song you perform, and provides guided exercises to help you improve. We use a pedagogical approach, reinforced with gaming systems to make learning fast and fun. All music you hear in Take7 is professionally produced, and is played by a virtual orchestra that you control. Take7 is available on Mac, Windows PC and iPad.
Using a freemium business model, it is easy for customers to get started. We provide the app and trial songs for free, and initial revenue comes from selling songs.
