edClef is a completely re-imagined MOOC portal for music enthusiasts who want to grasp the essentials required to learn music, using online virtual instruments.
New Delhi, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/31/2013 -- Since ages, it has been universally believed that if there's one thing one should learn in his/her lifetime, it's music. However, the way many people have been attempting to learn music over the last few years has made it a mundane, bland exercise - memorizing the notes of a few popular songs and tunes and mechanically playing them out in the name of practice or performance.
edClef is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) portal by LASAWARE with the vision to redefine the way music is learnt. They believe that by making music-initiation free and accessible to all, through the internet, they can usher in the next generation of serious music learning. Instead of hiring tutors to teach, in the unimaginative fashion that has become a characteristic feature of the music learning 'trade', anyone with access to the internet would be able to get a good music education, complete with lessons, tests and assignments.
The best things in life are free, and following this maxim, this music-initiation service will also be completely free. Instead of having to pay for instruments and real-life tuitions (above $2,000 for a piano and at least $50 per class) just to get started, music enthusiasts can realize their musical aspirations through edClef, which will provide an amazing way for them to kick-start the teaching-learning process without the need of any initial financial investment. Plus, it's completely open source!
The courses will focus on the most fundamental aspects of learning music. The site is meant for people, belonging to any age group, who have not had any training or taken any music courses, and would first like to explore with an online tutor before investing in an instrument and a tutor.
This campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal. Funding duration: October 25, 2013 - November 23, 2013 (11:59pm PT).
