LAUNCHED Music Practice App after 3 years!

Shawn McGinn @playtunes

Oh guys, it's been a battle. You know the drill - cranking after work, after kids go to bed, for a LONG time. And it's OUT! Not selling like I'd hoped. But I have a great team and we'll tweak, measure, and get it right. PlayTunes is an app that hears kids perform and gives them feedback in the form of a smart video. It's the most amazing thing. I love this thing, but I'm not sure anyone else will! We'll see. I taught band and orchestra and jazz for 20 years the US. We've got some downloads; let's see where it goes! Keep going, folks!!! Never give up!
