About Our Company

Uberchord is a high-tech music learning platform designed to enable anyone to pursue their dream of playing an instrument. It uses patent pending audio technology and AI to rethink the process of learning music in the digital age. With its interactive, adaptive and personal concept, Uberchord’s comes as close to a personal music teacher as it gets, enabling players of all levels to advance on their instruments both technically and musically. Uberchord’s vision is to build an ecosystem connecting learners, musicians and teachers to create the world largest catalog of music courses and songs, essentially becoming a Soundcloud for music learning.

The company was founded 2014 by four friends working in the software industry, all hobby guitar players who had grown increasingly frustrated with their slow progress and decided to do something about it. At present Uberchord covers the guitar, but this is only the beginning.
