The Bishop Perowne Church of England College has become the first school in the UK to use the new online piano learning platform to assist music teaching.
As reported on All About Piano, the Worcestershire school has partnered with Skoove – a Berlin-based start-up – to using its interactive online piano lessons as a classroom tool.
The cable-free platform uses audio analysis and curated courses to help students learn classical and contemporary music. Skoove also helps students work on composition and improvisation skills.
“Skoove is a superb supplement to music education within our school. It is a motivational tool that broadens, deepens and consolidates musical learning,” said director of music at Bishop Perowne College, Ashley Buxton.

“With the class fully engaged in their learning, Skoove gives us the opportunity to spend quality one-one time with students who require extra support within the classroom.”
Florian Plenge, CEO of Skoove, added: “The success of our collaboration with Bishop Perowne College indicates the strong and significant potential for further incorporation of Skoove into the education system.
“As the relationship continues, we are beginning to look closely at the benefits of combining innovation and traditional teaching methods of piano learning. Undoubtedly, if proved positive, these results have great potential to compliment and significantly advance traditional music learning across all schools.”
