There are approximately 2,108,000 musicians in the United States. Every year the number of musicians is rising but currently there isn't a platform to help them meet other musicians for collaboration or to network. I conducted research, using both interviews and surveys to understand the challenges they face.
- Beginners don’t know where to look for jamming events and to connect with other musicians.
- Currently, most musicians play with people they already know and often don't get the chance to play with new people who they don't know.
- When they jam with musicians they don't know they often encounter problems such as different skill levels, musical styles and genre interests, which is a big pain point. A lot of time is wasted during jamming sessions as they figure out what to play.
