Digital tools for instrument pedagogy of the future

Collection of digital games to support music instrument learning

To be published in 2023

Learning to play an instrument is a long process. Hard work that can be rewarding, even addictive! Our games support students in their independent practice by gamified content that helps to build good practising habits. The solution helps teachers by offering new pedagogical and musical content as tools for their teaching. The student is rewarded for the time spent on practising. Completing the games and levels motivate the student and show the progress made.

The pedagogically designed content of the games targets specific areas of instrument tuition, offering new tools and content for teaching, for example scales, improvisation, and ensemble work.

With our games the students can learn and practice certain topics independently. This leaves more time in classes to concentrate on areas that require or benefit from the teacher’s presence.

The teacher can assign homework easily and follow up the students’ progress and the time spent on practising.

Game Features

A collection of pedagogically designed minigames to support practising scales, learning to play with a virtual band, learning to improvise and more!

A gallery where the student can record their own performances and homework assignments and share them with the teacher and friends.

Weekly reporting to the teacher, easy follow up of each student’s progress and time spent on practising.
