Musicology, the Canadian-based NAMM Member, is looking to improve the online music lesson experience for both teachers and students.
Rebecca Featherstone, founder and CEO, has been a piano teacher in Ontario for over 20 years. However, last year, along with most others music educators, was forced to ditch the traditional lesson protocol in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. No longer able to use the staple tools of her trade, Featherstone’s lessons came to a screeching halt. To adapt to this new environment, Featherstone jumped into online platforms to continue safely engage her students.
Teaching in the new online format became increasingly frustrating, so Featherstone decided to tackle the challenges presented through traditional platforms by creating a state-of-the-art application for online music instruction. Musicology was built “specifically for music teachers” and is a tool created “by music teachers, for music teachers.”
