School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education, has announced the integration of RealTime Audio technology into its School of Rock Method App to improve the experience of online and remote lessons and group rehearsals. The new technology will allow School of Rock to expand upon its Method App, powered by MatchMySound, to offer remote synchronous group performances, a new moderator functionality, and live recording and streaming solutions.
“School of Rock posed a unique challenge, in that it required a real-time solution for its Method App that would work elegantly and efficiently, not just for one-on-one educational purposes, but also for group band practices,” said Taylor Robinson, RealTime Audio CEO. “RealTime Audio solves each of these scenarios, and then some, with its ultra-low latency, Zoom-like webcam technology designed with musicians in mind.”
With the addition of RealTime Audio solutions, the School of Rock Method App will now offer ultra-low latency, drastically enhanced audio and video, a live jam moderator function, a master mute button, and security and privacy features specific to the ages and needs of School of Rock students.
“Our goal is to continually improve the online and remote lesson and rehearsal experience of our students and teachers,” said Sam Dresser, Vice President of Education for School of Rock. “Pandemic or not, it will always be crucial for musicians to learn and play together in a way that’s equally synchronous, smart, and engaging. The School of Rock Method App can now offer this kind of experience, thanks to the addition of RealTime Audio technology.”
