About

Overview:

A small team and I have made three Apps; Guitar by Music Wormhole, Ukulele by Music Wormhole and Piano by Music Wormhole, for the Apple mobile platforms; iPhone, iPod and iPad.  These Apps help people to learn to play a musical instrument. In order to help as many people as possible, these Apps are FREE. You can download them by clicking on one of these links:

Guitar: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id617762507?mt=8

Ukulele: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ukulele-by-music-wormhole/id673005689?ls=1&mt=8

Piano: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/piano-by-music-wormhole/id673006426?ls=1&mt=8

Please use these links to download Music Wormhole's Apps and take a look at the work we have done. 

What are Music Wormholes?

In a "nutshell" Music Wormhole's show a graphic of the finger positions, on a specific instrument, to play the chords which are diatonic to the twelve Major Scales of Western Music. 

When you tap on a graphic, a sound file plays the Chord, on the instrument shown in the graphic. By swiping the screen, you can change the Chord.

All Music Wormholes products use a consistent color assignment to each of the twelve notes of Western Music which makes these Apps visually intuitive. Complex music theory concepts are made more easy to understand by the use of color. 

Music Wormhole's Apps are music theory correct, which means that users get a good foundation of knowledge and they will sound good. Our Apps are a wonderful alternative to studying music theory out of thick boring text books which struggle to communicate many musical concepts.

We believe that Music Wormhole's Apps are excellent and they have been downloaded thousands of times by people all over the world.

Our initial user base has given us feedback. There are several requests for improvements that have been repeated by multiple users. We want to make these improvements and that is why we are asking for your help?

Improvement we will make:

All funds pledged will be used to pay modest wages to professional people to implement three specific improvements, listed below:

1. Provide a "Loop" feature so that a Chord progression can be played over and over again in a loop.

2. Provide a "Rest" feature. A Rest in music is a silent period or silent note. The silent notes give accent to the musical notes around them. This is an important improvement that will improve the quality of the music which our Apps can generate.

3. Incorporate a metronome into our Apps so that the user can control the speed at which the Chord progression which they have entered is played back to them. The existing Apps will play a Chord progression back at the same speed as it was entered but many beginners are not good at entering a Chord progression at a consistent speed and want to hear their Chord progressions played back at various tempos, such as 60, 90, 120 or 180 beats per minute.

The Rewards:

The rewards that we can offer you are the printed media version of our Apps. We have printed 600 products and we hope to send them out?

I believe that the programming technicalities are within our capabilities and we feel very confident about our ability to deliver the improvements listed above. You can download our existing Apps from the Apple App Store today and experience for yourself the quality that we have achieved.

I personally guarantee that these improvements will be done if we reach our Kickstarter goals. 

By helping Music Wormhole to offer music education Apps to people around the planet to as many people as possible.

You will be helping to create a HAPPY WORLD.

Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

The technical aspects of coding these Apps has largely been overcome with the launch of the Guitar by Music Wormhole, which was followed two months later with the launch of Ukulele by Music Wormhole and Piano by Music Wormhole.

There are still many technical challenges but we feel confident that we can solve these technical problems.

Our mission is to make the World a happier place by helping as many people as possible to play a musical instrument. Telling the World about these Apps is our biggest hurdle and we are hoping that the improved features we plan to build will help these Apps to "go viral".
