HEDLINE: Tonara raises $5 million Series B for Expansion to China

Tonara, a music education startup based in Israel, raised a $5 million Series B led by Chinese Internet giant Baidu with participation of existing investors Carmel Ventures and Lool Ventures.

Founded in 2008, Tonara previously raised a $750k Seed round in 2011 and a $4 million Series A in 2012.

The new investment will be used to accelerate the growth of Tonara in China through localized versions of the existing two apps, Tonara and Wolfie, and new apps that will be specifically created for the Chinese market. Baidu will also promote and distribute the Wolfie app, a teaching and evaluation tool for music instructors.

The Chinese music education market is particularly interesting to Tonara as there are currently over 50 million students learning to play the piano and another 10 to 20 million learning the Violin, Tonara CEO Guy Bauman told TechCrunch.
