Noah Keitel has been a music educator for many years. His business partner, Dan Flies, is a longtime musician. So when the two set out to create an app that would streamline music lessons and make life easier for teachers, they knew exactly what needs they wanted to address.
It’s been eight years since they launched the initial version of LessonLogs, a cloud-based web app that helps teachers and students collaboratively organize practices and lesson plans. A newly updated free version was released in August, and has racked up some 800 new users already.
“It’s a fast and easy tool for music educators that addresses methodology flaws that are decades old,” says Keitel.
