[excerpt] "Access to great music learning content on the internet is a challenging and frustrating endeavor. What Kena Opus is solving is not just the discovery problem of content but also enables valuable utilities specific to self-taught music learners around that content. Musicians at different levels (beginner to advanced) require different utilities and treatment of content. What Kena enables is annotation around the content such as scales, keys, chords, and narration. This makes music content easily discoverable on the Kena Opus platform and also helps enable personalized recommendations, goal setting, and highly productive practice sessions. The result is a fast-track learning path for musicians." says founder and CEO, Preetham Vishwanatha. [more...]

[excerpt] "Another recent example of AI enhancing humans’ experience with music is AI music tutors. These could be extremely beneficial: a cheaper, more reliable and as helpful solution to learning music, compared to a human teacher. The AI music practice Kena.AI, based in San Francisco, is launching a personal, artificial music tutor application in the future, designed to teach people how to pick up and master musical instruments. It would be a revolutionary platform that could change the way we learn to acquire skills, “bridging the gap between learning from human-tutors and being self-taught". Not only is Kena described as being able to educate tutees with clear instructions, it is designed to offer an individual coaching experience by tracking students’ progress via “listening” to their playing, creating their personalised learning paths and recommending music tailored to their taste."

The company is developing what it describes as “an Artificial-Intelligence personal music teacher” capable of “giving real-time feedback on practice sessions, create dynamic personalised learning paths, enable search based on compositional architecture of music” AND “generate AI-based music compositions to build upon”. That’s according to a blog post by CEO Preetham Vishwanatha published yesterday."
