General Questions

What is Mussila Music School?

Mussila Music School is an award-winning app with hours of musical lessons, challenges, and games carefully crafted by musical experts and educators, designed to provide a playful experience. Mussila is perfect for beginners.

What age is Mussila intended for?

We designed Mussila for 5-11 year old children but it turns out that people of all ages are enjoying the game!  The youngest ones (up to five year old) will need their parents help but after that they do fine on their own. We however encourage parents to play with their children and enjoy together with them the musical journey in Mussila.

Can my child learn piano with Mussila Music School?

Yes! With Mussila, your child will learn the piano, step by step. Use the on-screen keyboard or choose the Tone Recognition and play on your piano, no cables are needed, and the app will listen and give you instant feedback.

Play along to familiar songs like Happy Birthday; Mary Had a Little Lamb, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and more. Graduate to more involved pieces from Swan Lake and The Magic Flute and eventually tackle the masters like Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart.

Regardless of where your child is on the Mussila learning path, you can practice and play along with them. No music experience necessary!

Is it possible to play other instruments?

With Tone Recognition, your child can play on any acoustic instruments, no cables are needed, and the app will listen and give you instant feedback.

However, the learning experience in the Play section is designed to learn the keys on the piano and, therefore, is focused on this instrument.

Why aren’t there any instructions?

The answer to this one is simple: We want our players to figure things out for themselves! Learning the written language of music can be challenging for the beginners and by activating the their own logical thinking they will gain a much deeper understanding of the music theory and gradually also a solid foundation for further music studies.
