About

MusicFol.io will be:

  • An online learning platform to make it easier for music students and teachers to communicate and manage assignments and related study materials.
  • A practice log system designed to help musicians track their progress more effectively.
  • A collaboration tool that will improve communication and facilitate sharing of materials for musical ensembles of all sizes and genres.
  • An online library for managing and cataloging sheet music.

We understand that musicians don't spend all their time practicing at a desk in front of a computer. That's why we're taking a mobile-first approach and building a system that will work just as well on tablets and smartphones as it will on a desktop computer.

You can view a demo of the user experience and the core MusicFol.io functionality by watching this second video:

We've turned to Kickstarter to fund this project because we want our users to be our customers instead of a product we sell to advertisers. That means MusicFol.io will depend on paid subscriptions.

We want you to be one of our charter subscribers. By backing MusicFol.io you'll get a one-year subscription to MusicFol.io at a steeply discounted price, as well as early access during our private beta this fall.

A successful Kickstarter campaign will give us the resources to build out our technical infrastructure over the summer. It will also enable us to cover our server and support costs during the first year of service.

If you make any kind of music, take a look at our reward levels and back this project today. And please be sure to share this with a music student, teacher or performer you know who could benefit from a product like MusicFol.io.

We're not selling the false promise that MusicFol.io will instantly make you a better player. Only hard work and practice can do that.

And we just want to help you practice more perfectly.

Risks and challenges

We've built a number of projects of this scale over the years, including several medical education websites with similar scopes. However, unforeseen technical issues do, unfortunately, arise occasionally. We've already completed a large portion of the front-end work for this project and we'll be minimizing the risk of any unforeseen infrastructure issues by using Firebase. We've also planned our project timeline with generous padding.

Our most significant concern is the possibility of scope-creep during development. We're working very hard to keep this project simple and generalized so it can benefit the largest possible number of users. K.I.S.S. is our mantra.

That being said, we're confident we can deliver this project to our backers on schedule.
