New ideas


For the future of music education

 

What's shapes?

A theory, a music-learning method, and a collection of tools for music interaction and analysis. At its heart, Shapes is searching for the best possible way to connect our natural experience of music with the ideas—both established and emerging—that we encounter every day.

the app

When experienced musicians interact with music, they seldom think in terms of notes, scales or keys. Instead, they’ve translated years of experience into natural shapes and patterns on their instrument. The Shapes Music app lets anyone experience this broader way of thinking right from the start.

The playlist 

The best way to access musical ideas is through the songs we listen to and enjoy every day. Shapes maintains a current playlist of thousands of songs that form the foundation for fun and incredibly personalized music learning.
