Uberchord secures high six-figure investment, led by Ebner Publishing House, Europe’s largest publisher and producer of Guitar & Bass magazine
With Uberchord, guitarists now have a personal trainer available anytime and anywhere
March 5th, 2015 8:30 AM EST – Uberchord® Engineering, a high-tech company in mobile music instrument training, has secured a high six-figure seed investment, led by the largest guitar magazine publisher in Europe and US WatchTime publisher: Ebner Publishing.
Uberchord, a Berlin-based company, is developing a mobile app that listens to students play guitar and provides personal coaching to help them improve. The firm’s patent-pending audio recognition technology allows for a radically new learning concept and teaches students the language of music.
An astonishing 90% of people starting to learn guitar give up after only four months. Uberchord aims to solve this by providing an engaging and personalized learning experience with social and gaming elements.
Next month, the company plans to launch its first product: a chord trainer for iPhone. “We are pleased by the interest of all our seed investors, but am especially honored to be recognized by Ebner Publishing.” said Eckart Burgwedel, CEO & Co-Founder of Uberchord, “This investment will allow us to scale faster, bringing our innovative music-learning software to the market globally.”
Uberchord will showcase the beta version of their chord trainer at SXSW’s Startup Spotlight and Music Gear Expo in Austin. Be one of the first to experience the next level of guitar training by signing-up for the beta.
