MUSIC:ED, the online media platform, and technology company, Tido, have announced an expanded global partnership giving music students, teachers, educational institutions and industry partners in the UK, Hong Kong and South-East Asia access to a diverse selection of music and resources via Tido’s premium subscription service.
Available as an iPad app or via desktop browser, Tido Music provides a fast-growing library of over 7,000 piano and vocal scores, comprising classical, jazz and educational repertoire from leading publishers such as Bärenreiter, Edition Peters and Faber Music. Scores are synchronised with professional recordings from distinguished artists. Users will discover a range of innovative practice tools, such as speed-shift, pitch-shift, looping and annotation, and educational material including videos and written commentaries. The app even listens to musicians as they play, turning the pages of the score automatically.
Having recently opened an office in Hong Kong, MUSIC:ED will act as a local partner for Tido, providing support to Tido Music subscribers across the region. Tailored packages for schools, music centres and businesses are available as well as individual subscriptions. MUSIC:ED will also provide editorial coverage and will leverage media partners in Hong Kong.
Kathryn Knight, CEO of Tido, said:
‘Tido Music gives students, teachers, amateurs and professional musicians access to a wealth of scores, audio recordings and study material all in one place. With Tido Music, subscribers can engage, study and experience an extensive range of music in exciting new ways.’
Ian Clethero, CEO of MUSIC:ED, said:
‘We pride ourselves in being able to adapt to the marketplace and our customers’ needs when promoting and supporting groundbreaking services such as this. With the launch of our new office in Hong Kong, this exciting partnership comes at a perfect time. Together, we’ll be working to bring local education and commercial partners and consumers together online to support their music making.’
