Musical U launched just over a month ago and today, there is a already a thriving community of members who are active and committed with their musical training. We have members from all over the world and playing virtually every instrument you can think of! Ranging from classical violin through to metal guitar and jazz piano. Our members range from complete beginners to seasoned professionals earning a living gigging and also a number of music teachers looking to brush up their skills and discover new ways to inspire their students. The majority of members aren’t (yet) making a living with music but are absolutely in love with music, have reached a good level with their instruments and are excited to really take their musicality to the next level.
Each week, we are sending out a weekly update welcoming the new members who’ve just joined and congratulating members’ success during the week. New members are encouraged to introduce themselves to the rest of the Musical U community. Each member can add friends, post updates, and start a discussion in the discussion board. Members have access to detailed and effective training modules and they can easily keep track of their progress. An online “community conductor” (me!) keeps tabs on member success and also helps them stay on track with their training, each and every step of the way. In Musical U we are very passionate about your goals and we are always happy to lend a hand, share an ear, or offer a virtual “high five” when you celebrate a musical triumph.
