I have been a piano teacher for over 20 years in Toronto, Canada. I've always taught the old-fashioned way, just plain old books, pencils and stickers. Covid-19 changed that dramatically.
In March 2020, most activity at Featherstone Music came to a screeching halt with the introduction of a global pandemic. We had to think of something quickly too keep going and switched to online lessons via many video conferencing platforms like so many teachers did all over the world.
These platforms were a huge disappointment and I knew we weren't alone in the struggle. Everything available seemed to simply cater to video, not audio. They were made for families to chat around the world or businesses to conduct meetings. This didn't help us in the music community!
Out came the idea for a music teaching app specifically for teachers. Working alongside Ryan Kagan, we came up with a business plan to blow the music education world away: with one innovative app we'd give teachers the ability to teach both online and offline at a social distance. And Musicology was born!
Musicology erases the need for numerous apps that work together to create a teaching environment. The user saves time, frustration and money by using a single, streamlined platform.
This is an app created BY MUSIC TEACHERS, FOR MUSIC TEACHERS. If you need to contact us for support, you will speak with an actual music teacher who will intimately understand your issue.
We welcome ideas and suggestions! We want to create a community, not just an app. We want to help make teaching enjoyable again in this "new normal".
Thank you to everyone who is and has been and will be involved in this project! We hear you!
