Mussila Music School is an award-winning app with hours of musical lessons, challenges and games carefully crafted by musical experts and educators, designed to provide a playful experience.
Mussila was founded by Margrét Juliana Sigurdardottir, a DipRAM postgraduate from the Royal Academy of Music in London, and computer engineer Hilmar Thor Birgisson, an avid game player and developer. After receiving grants from The Icelandic Technology Fund and the Nordic Game Institute, they set up their talented team in 2015 to revolutionize music education using a gaming and joyful approach. Mussila believes in music-making being part of our everyday lives, and that music education should be available for everyone. Since then, Mussila has worked to design, develop, and validate an educational app that meets all the requisites for teaching and learning the basics of music in an entertaining and fun way. In 2020 Jon Gunnar Thordarson took over as the CEO of the company, today Mussila is an international team with experts from the arts, music, IT, and digital marketing. Mussila was recently granted the EAF EdTech Evaluation from the Education Alliance of Finland. The app did very well in the impact evaluation and earned The Pedagogical Quality Certificate.
