“We have customers working in all different spheres of music education, so it’s important for us to offer a variety of tools to address all their needs. Soundtrap will enable our classroom users to create, collaborate and publish music,” said Jim Frankel, founder of MusicFirst. “The bonus of Soundtrap is that it is a beautifully designed, easy-to-use solution. It’s only been a month and I’ve spoken to a number of customers that are already engaged and excited to get going on Soundtrap.”

“Soundtrap is ideally suited to creative music making for students and educators of every kind so it makes sense that we should partner with MusicFirst,” said Per Emanuelson, CEO, Soundtrap. “The great part is that Soundtrap works on any device so you can start a project in the classroom on a laptop, continue to work on it using a smart phone and finish it in the evening at home on a tablet.”
