We've been using tuners a lot in band.  Please download a tuner on any smart device that you have.  Here is a combination free tuner and metronome:

You can download it and begin using it.  If you don't like this app, download any "chromatic tuner" available.  A guitar tuner will only tune 6 notes.  Good luck!
