Studioso is Italian for scholar
Studioso is Italian for scholar. At Studioso we are all scholars trying to make the music education and tech education and eLearning industry a better place for scholars by scholars. Studioso was created by Ocean Salazar and Charles Porth and they both experienced first hand the frustration with music lessons and classrooms. Charlie Porth and Ocean Salazar sought to change music education for the better.
Charlie Porth played trombone and after 4 years quit due to lack of progress and practice frustration. So Charlie Porth and Ocean Salazar joined there combined skills to create a creative solution to a problem thus creating Studioso. Hoping to change music education for the better.
Ocean played violin for 14 years and had a love hate relationship. Ocean loved playing but found practicing to be hard and often he would practice the wrong techniques assigned by the teacher. This lead to improper practice techniques and created frustration with his instrument. He approached Charlie Porth with the revaluation of Studioso
Our mission is to improve the lives of musicians through technology. Studioso eliminates student frustration, motivates discipline, and fosters the love of music. Studies show that practice frustration is the leading cause of dropping-out of music education. For example, within 2-3 years of starting piano lessons, 80% of students quit. On top of that, most of those who quit, regret it! Studioso is on a mission to combat this using technology.
Studioso is enabling clear communication, efficient practice, and progress visualization like never before.
Studioso donates part of our profits to expand music education accessibility and offers discounts to lower-income schools.
The Road to Artistry
Students often forget to practice with structure, correct technique, and mindfulness. Inefficient practice results in slow progress and frustration. Studioso's revolutionary Technique Library has practice methods for all instruments to help students practice correctly and make more progress.
Motivation Students, Informed Teachers
So many young music students experience a sense of lost direction when they can’t look back to see the progress they have achieved. This leads to lost motivation and eventual dejection with music as a whole. This doesn’t have to be the case. Studioso is determined to enable musicians to achieve their full potential. The Progress Tracker is the final part of the Studioso solution. By fostering accountability lessons and rehearsals can focus on artistry and musicality, rather than sufficiency.
