About this project

Leiva Learning Strings (Bass)
Leiva Learning Strings (Bass)

We are helping people learn how to play stringed instruments and keep them playing to make learning easier, more efficient, and fun!

We need help from you all to bring our strings to the consumers. These are students, hobbyists, beginners, experts, EVERYBODY!

We're raising money to begin manufacturing the Leiva Learning Strings here in Raleigh, NC in order to expand to a national presence and bring more talented musicians into the world.

We construct the Leiva Learning Strings using a proprietary lacquer which ensures a high quality finish without sacrificing sound quality. After all...you want you music to SOUND as good as you look playing it. The lacquer has proven to far outlast the tonality of the strings, so we're confident you'll love them! We're currently making these by hand. We need your help to step up to an industrial manufacturing process.

We have the tools to help everyone struggling with learning how to play a stringed instruments - the Leiva Learning Strings are the first stepping stone.

Product Details

Leiva Learning Strings

Leiva Learning Strings provide an innovative and intuitive method for teaching students how to correlate musical notes to the cumbersome fingering positions of a stringed musical instrument by color-coding each note. Its seven different patented string colors are set to match the seven natural notes found in music theory, A,B,C,D,E,F and G, while sharps/flats remain plain. These notes and colors also correspond to our teaching manuals, which include patented, colored sheet music, to help individuals engage in reading sheet music by matching the colors on our “Leiva Learning Strings” to the color-coded music staff notes. Once students learn the Leiva Learning Strings technique, they can apply it to any stringed instrument. 

Two-Toned Strings

Two-Toned Strings mimic the look of a piano and give the fretboard more structure for intermediate players while allowing them to express their favorite team colors, school colors, or simply matching colors to their instruments. By using the same intuitive outline to distinguish the sharp/flat notes from natural notes, players can now easily locate their half-step notes. We are able to make the product fashionable by providing customizable colors to match the player’s taste.

Current colors: White and Red, White and Carolina Blue, White and Duke Blue, and Gold and Purple.

SMILES™

SMILES is an acronym for Sheet Music Import, Leiva Export Software. This is our revolutionary new system for converting traditional black and white sheet music to our special colorized sheet music to all users to match notes with their Leiva Learning Strings. This allows for a swift progression into learning and playing while keeping the process fun and natural. SMILES access is available as a “freemium” add-on to our Leiva Learning Strings offering. This means we will give our users access to convert sheet music at no charge to them.
