I have been teaching piano for over 20 years in Toronto (Canada) without using any technology. Just plain old books, pencils and stickers. Covid changed that dramatically.
In March 2020, our music school Featherstone Music INC 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 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 along side Ryan Kagan, we came up with a business plan to blow the music education world away with an innovative new way to teach online that would allow users to simply use one app for all of their teaching needs both online and offline at a social distance. Out came Musicology!
Musicology erases the need for numerous apps that need to integrate with each other. The user saves time, frustration and money by using only one platform.
This is an app created by music teachers FOR music teachers. When you contact us for support you will get a music teacher on the other end who can relate to you. We welcome ideas and suggestions! We want to create a community, not just an app. We want to help make teaching enjoyable in this new norm that we all face.
Thank you, to everyone, who is and has been involved in this project. We hear you!
