If you’ve ever thought about learning a musical instrument, chances are you had to do a bit of research first. Figuring out which instrument you should buy, how difficult it would be to learn, and of course who could teach you are just a few of the questions that have to be considered. Getting the answers to those questions however hasn’t always been the easiest - until now that is, thanks to our latest Startup of the Week.
Musiquity is a new online / offline music learning platform. The site aims to match the best qualified and passionate music teachers with students who really want to learn. Music teachers who wish to register their services on the site have to apply first and Musiquity undertakes a thorough screening and vetting process before adding a particular teacher to the platform. They also undertake interviews with prospective teachers to assess their commitment, passion and real enthusiasm for teaching and they even assess the spaces or studios where teachers would be planning to teach. Pretty thorough process! By doing this though, Musicology are in essence setting themselves apart - the focus on Quality and Safety means that any prospective students can be assured they are going to be taught by someone pretty special!
As well as providing the matching service between teacher and pupil, Musiquity also plans to introduce lots more innovative services and features on all aspects of making music and learning about music. In essence its aim is to be the definitive resource for music education and learning in the UK - a high aspiration perhaps but one which by its performance so far, is entirely possible.
Here at Startacus we reckon that any startup that aims to promote music and its creation ought to be supported. We wish these guys well!
As Friedrich Nietzsche once said,“Without music, life would be a mistake”. And who are we to argue with the acclaimed philosopher, poet, composer and cultural critic...?
