Music learning made FUN!

Our team developed a smart instrument that helps children discover and develop core musical skills. With Guido and its accompanying app, kids can play songs instantly, feeling rewarded and encouraged to keep on playing and learning.

We help young kids form better practicing habits!

Playing with Guido enhances their cognitive skills while fostering creative thinking and their ability to focus.

Wireless & Portable

Guido communicates with its smartphone application & other Guido devices through Bluetooth Low Energy.

Robust & Durable

Our instrument was designed with kids in mind, which is why it’s got a solid case and a touch responsive soft silicon screen.

Magical Surface

When using the instrument, our custom LED illuminations configures the surface for different play modes and exercises.

Instant Feedback

Get started with our beginner-friendly app that offers behavioral, cognitive and personal support for practicing music.

Manage Guido, access extra content, view progress & more

An intuitive desktop and mobile application allows parents or teachers to create and adapt a child’s music curriculum as needed. Collaboration with music institutions & teachers allows us to always propose quality content. Simply synchronize and let your child's musical journey begin!
