"I have no hesitation in recommending Practice Pal to any music department, it is the only software package that I have come across that supports administrators, teachers, parents and students alike and genuinely enhances every aspect of this complicated dynamic"
Dan Anthony – British School Muscat

Hi, I’m Ross.

I am a music teacher at my core. This means I am determined to help budding musicians fall—and stay—in love with learning music. In 2018, I took a leap of faith from teaching to EdTech because I was seeing first hand an unjust amount of obstacles getting in their way.

The problem was threefold:

These collective missteps had been preventing too many music students from reaching their full potential, right before my eyes. I deeply felt that it was time to shake things up. 

I teamed up with Cambridge-educated computer scientist and one-man band James King to see if we could apply technology to these problems in a convenient and user-friendly way. The app-based approach we developed, Practice Pal, transforms how schools, teachers, parents, and students move through music education together.

We are Practice Pal, by musicians for musicians.
