Early this morning we announced that MakeMusic has acquired Weezic, the augmented sheet music innovator. View the press release.
Members of the Weezic and MakeMusic teams, seen in MakeMusic’s Boulder offices in June, 2015.
Weezic was acquired due to its core strengths of web-based music learning and assessment technologies. Additionally, the Weezic team is comprised of exceptionally talented researchers and developers.
Together we plan to release a web-based SmartMusic, compatible with Chromebooks, for back-to-school 2016. To meet this ambitious time frame, existing Weezic products will be wound down over the coming months, allowing our development staff (including those in our new Paris office) to focus on the effort.
“We are committed to growing SmartMusic and providing world class practice tools to musicians, teachers and composers,” stated Gear Fisher, MakeMusic CEO. “With this acquisition, SmartMusic will become available on the web, and in particular, it will become accessible on Chromebook.”
Existing SmartMusic subscribers can rest assured that nothing within the current SmartMusic product will be immediately affected by this acquisition. We will continue to produce updates to SmartMusic (as we did this week) and will retain our focus on maintaining and building upon the current product.
