Tonara, a NYC-based developer of an interactive sheet music app, has raised $4m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Carmel Ventures, with participation from existing investors Index Ventures, Lool Ventures, Eilon Tirosh, Rami Lipman and other angels.
The company intends to use the capital to develop technology, add partnerships with sheet music publishers, and pursue strategic marketing initiatives.
Launched in 2011 by Yair Lavi, CEO, Tonara is an interactive sheet music application that listens to musicians and helps them learn, rehearse, and perform.
Its music store currently features a wide selection of music and includes pieces for piano, violin, cello, flute and voice, with plans to support additional instruments as its user base grows. Each week, the company will introduce a new selection of songs from Hal Leonard‘s vast score collection, which features music from today’s artists under the Universal, Sony and EMI labels.
Tonara is currently available as an iPad App on Apple’s AppStore.
