Duolingo Working on a Music App – Music Industry Watch This Space!

Duolingo is currently working on a music app.

It turns out that Duolingo (which has over 500 million users – not sure how many are active) – have been working on a music app with a small team for some time.

There is currently a job for a learning scientist who is an “expert in music education who combines both theoretical knowledge of relevant learning science research and hands-on teaching experience”.

The job listing suggests that the app will teach basic concepts in music theory using popular songs and teachers.

This sounds very interest – as it would be a great stepping stone for Duolingo to move into a lot of new and interesting areas of education, with their already massive audience.
