It’s not just about teaching languages, a new post has been discovered that suggests Duolingo is working on a new music app.
The company is holding its cards close to its chest for now because the description doesn’t say much about what the program has in store. According to the publication, Duolingo is currently searching For someone who can teach certain musical concepts and who has “a lot of experience teaching music” to children and adults alike. Whoever is hired will be responsible for ensuring that Duolingo Music (as we’ll refer to it) builds on “Learning the Science” to teach music in a way that’s “fun, fast, and emphasizes ‘learning by doing'”. The post also states that the Learning World should take the lead in creating a curriculum hinting that the app is still in the early stages of development.
Other than a description and what the company is looking for, not much can be gleaned from Duolingo’s latest project. It is not known what exactly these “concepts” are. In addition, we don’t know if the app will teach people to read and write music or how to play an instrument. However, when you look at the company’s other educational apps, Duolingo Music may follow a similar path to how the company plays other majors.
For example, Duolingo Math It teaches, well, mathematics to both kids and adults. nothing too complicated; No calculus lessons or anything. The app instead focuses more on foundational math like multiplication and geometry. He also does play lessons with the goal of alleviating “sports anxiety”. Duolingo claims that 93 percent of adults in the United States have some type of math anxiety that makes it difficult for some to learn. So, by following this train of logic, the upcoming app can teach music lessons in an easy way.

Obviously, the launch date of the new service is unknown since the job posting was only discovered recently. It is noteworthy Found another Duolingo post on LinkedIn Music Composition and Curriculum Adviser. The job is for a freelance composer with experience writing songs to ‘teach beginner learners’ in a digital environment. The LinkedIn posts have since filled out, but at the time of writing, the Learning Scientist position is still open. So if you live in the Pittsburgh area and have a PhD in Music Education or Music Theory, this is your chance to further your music literacy.
