What People are Saying

Cyborg Llama is easy, efficient, fun, and rewarding:

I think it's really fun to get to be in an orchestra[...]and be able to use an app like this to make it easier! I also love playing my viola with other people

-CK, student

Cyborg Llama is an intuitive learning tool which my 12 year old finds easy to use. The practice mode allows her to keep trying until she perfects the piece. The individual mode gives her the opportunity to record and playback the music and evaluate how it blends with the other pre-recorded work. Overall an excellent tool for all musicians.

-SV, parent

I think Cyborg Llama is super easy to use. You can listen back to yourself in Practice Mode and easily correct your mistakes.  It sounds awesome when everything is put together and it's super fun

-SK, student

The app was thoughtfully designed with ensemble musicians in mind, but can easily be used for individual projects and as a practice tool.

-Google Workspace Marketplace Reviewer

This app makes remote collaboration easy and accessible. It also works seamlessly with external microphones so that you can easily use the app for casual and professional projects alike.

-Gavon Peck, freelance violist

Cyborg Llama is awesome! It's super easy to use and my kid really likes being able to play along with the teacher track. When it's time for him to make his own recording, he can have as many tries as he likes. As a parent, I love that I don't have to be involved in his practice/recording--he's 8 and can do it 100% on his own. Yay!

Recording and remote collaborating is quick and easy!

Hi.

We want to help young musicians excel.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the USA in March 2020, Joelle needed to find a way to move her youth orchestras online.  She was surprised to find no app to rehearse online.  She complained to her brother, Garrett.

Garrett made Cyborg Llama.

Since then, Cyborg Llama has become a tool not only for online learning, but a powerful supplemental resource for young musicians to prepare for their in-person rehearsals by first rehearsing at home. 

We are very happy that Cyborg Llama has helped a capella groups, string quintets, high school orchestras, Suzuki group classes, guitar ensembles, all make music (from 29 different countries)!

Joelle is a violist and teacher who lives with a hermit crab in Maryland.  Garrett is a developer and lives in Washington with two cats.
