This is so cool! I am already a violinist by profession and this would be such a big hit at rehearsal breaks! Love it!

Phil Getzen says:

I've played violin since third grade, cello since sixth, string bass since seventh. My friends and I are avid Apple fans, and I, myself, am obsessed with Apple. Currently, my friends and I are trying to create an iOS orchestra that we would be able to perform in front of people. However, as a freshman in college, budgets are tight. I would really appreciate this app.

Boy would this app be useful for me. I could lull that Dragon that's been living in my garage for the past 3 months to get out! The dragon will be going into hibernation soon so... I'd like to get it out as soon as possible and this app should be the easiest way. I'm not begging, but it would be very helpful to get it soon! Thanks for the opportunity, I HOPE I GET IT.
