At Musicologie, one of our founding principles is that “Music Is For Everyone.” Our founder, Kay Barker, recently spoke with Charlie Sorrel from LifeWire about the importance of making music lessons accessible and fun for everyone.

“Music education does itself a disservice by elitist, exclusionary desires to teach only the past or only what is ‘classically correct.’ Yes, I think that electronic instruments are looked down upon, at least in terms of what is deemed the ‘right instrument to take lessons on.'” Kay Barker, founder and chief education officer at the Musicologie music academy, told Lifewire via email. “At Musicologie, we have lots of students branching out in their lessons—learning to compose, to use synthesizers and other electronic instruments, or just use their traditional instrument in a novel way.”
