About Soundslice

Soundslice makes beautiful, web-based music-learning software. Our goal is to be the best way to learn any piece of music.

The background

We originally created Soundslice to solve a major pain point in our lives as musicians: the process of learning a piece of music is way too inefficient.

Like many amateurs, we don’t read sheet music well and rely on a combination of reading music/tablature, listening to recordings and watching videos when we learn a new piece. We wanted something that put all of that in one place, synced together, so we could hear the music while we viewed the corresponding notation. We also wanted to be able to hone in on particular parts of a piece — allowing us to loop and slow down specific parts. Hence, Soundslice was born.

We believe music can never be perfectly described in ink or pixels. Music is best learned by listening, not just by reading about it. That philosophy guided our creation of the Soundslice player — a hybrid audio player / notation viewer that syncs notation with real audio. With it, you can hear exactly how the music should sound as you see the exact notation that needs to be played. People all around the world love it.

The products

There are several parts to Soundslice:

  1. Soundslice Channels, a community of musicians sharing musical ideas.
  2. The Soundslice Store, where we sell video lessons and transcriptions.
  3. Soundslice plans, where you can get extra Soundslice features for better studying and better teaching.
  4. Soundslice licensing, which lets companies use our technology within their own websites.

The common thread is our state-of-the-art music player. Read about it here.

The business

Soundslice makes money in three ways: charging for memberships, taking a small cut of store sales and licensing our technology.

We’re incorporated in Chicago, Illinois, USA, as Soundslice LLC.
