The list goes on. We know. We’ve been there, along with the rest of the planet. Once we understood how music fits together, everything changed for the better.
With the right tools, you can too. A lot faster that you believe. From the basics to very advanced. Your choice.
Let us introduce emuso™ . This visually stunning application is packed with everything you need to fix all the above problems, and many more.
emuso™ is for all instrumentalists and singers, all ages, all levels, whether you want to explore, learn, practice, or teach music.
The following virtual instruments are provided in v1.0 of emuso/Studio™:
With emuso™, here is some of what you can do:
Intervals are the fundamental building blocks of music and are always visually represented in any content you select or create (e.g. chords) on emuso virtual instruments and in the interactive content we provide (lessons, practice regimes, emusobooks). They always have a visual representation on a “clock instrument”. The clock can include a method for exploring relationships between chords and scales, chords and chords, and scale and scales. The sounds are always available (e.g. the sound of chord rooted at a given scale note).
This unique approach not only lets you see and hear how chords and scales relate but also how chords, melodies and rhythms work. What’s more, we will show you these in isolation and combined.
That’s not all though, at the touch of a button you can see what those same chords and scales look like on a different musical instrument (see supported instruments). All of that means you do not have to start to learning musical notation before you can start playing and creating music.
A simple introduction
Learning with emuso™ music software is a lot of fun. Check out our totally interactive chord book for beginners
As an illustration, here's a little taste of how quickly you can put together a technique practice routine and a chord progression using emuso's Toolkit
At the heart of emuso™ is the Rhythm-X tool. First, it can save you a lot of time if you need to create technique examples, chord progressions, and music examples. Second, these can be quickly adapted and shared with your students. Finally, emuso makes it easy for you to show chord and scale patterns clearly on-screen. So there is no need to worry if your student is having difficulty looking at your hands.
emuso is able to visually represent musical intervals. This helps you understand the relationship between: scales and chords, scales and scales, and chords and chords. Fundamentally, all music is about these relationships and when they occur in time. What is more, this is true regardless of the instrument being played. For this reason, we use a clock face to universally represent the 12 pitches (and their octaves) used in Western music. In other words, it doesn't matter what instrument you are playing, our unique visual notation system will demystify music theory once and for all!
emuso™ contains a lot of great features. To help you use them all, not only have we built in comprehensive user guides but we also have a help mode. Simply press a button to turn it on, and consequently any menu item, icon, or button you press will launch a help video related to that feature.
Our flagship product comes in the form of desktop software for musicians. It’s packed with tools and an interactive lesson player to empower your rapid musical growth. For instance, you can use it to create or download practice routines to improve your technique, rhythm, and timing. Most importantly, our unique interval-based approach demystifies music theory. You will see your understanding grow exponentially as your learning effort shrinks.
Our unique approach focuses on musical intervals. We have applied it throughout all our tools, interactive lessons, and video tips. It is an excellent way to develop instrument familiarity because it makes it much easier for you to memorise the scales and chords provided in emuso’s interactive reference library. Our lessons prove that music theory, using our approach, is simple to understand and apply.
Musicians will gain the confidence to jam with others. Also, they will elevate their talents and expand their improvisation skills, resulting in deserved recognition and more gigs. And finally, teachers will find ways to further motivate their students and demonstrate concepts with emuso’s tools. That’s more return business and more engaged students!

We've found emuso to be a real game changer with our students on the way how harmony and rhythm work together without having to use notation. Emuso really helps our students understand how to explore chord structures and rhythms. We heartily recommend this program to all of our students.
I have been receiving lessons from Jerry for sometime now, and before I really did struggle with learning as I have memory problems related to illness. With emuso, I have found it easy to learn even for me!
I understand the fundamentals I never thought I would get down, and it really is simple, I can’t recommend this enough whether you are a complete beginner or even have been playing for some time but wish to gain a greater understanding of the guitar.Conan Middleton
This is banging, I think I have come closer to being a musician in the last week or so, then I have in the last two years. I am sure I am even playing better, I am definitely looking for more expectations and honing in on the notes that work. I am sure when I have this down and I put on a track I have studied and understand, my electric playing will be better. At this point, I am just mucking about with the acoustic and chords. A big thank you to Jerry Axemaster.Dale Jeffrey
Excellent! Really dig the reframing of theory as something to paint sounds with rather than as something that’s limiting.Aays
This is a brilliant lesson. It should be taught way before anything else in essence this should be the root of all lessons. This sums up what every musician is really trying to do in a brilliantly formatted and easy to interpret way. These are firsts to me as well and I have been trying to learn for two years. Learn all you want about "notes" but without this info you don't have a colour palette to work with. All of this without even barely mentioning musical jargon. You could make a song without even knowing a notes name if you read and understand this. 5 STARS, MUST READ! Jerry Kramskoy, Brilliant lesson, should be at the front of what everyone learns.dcj20
I have been playing guitar for 17 years, mostly self-taught, and had been struggling with moving patterns and chords around the fretboard. By using emuso I found that it helped to reveal the inherent simplicity of music. It breaks it down for you to practice and understand. With this simple and intuitive way of learning about music, you can quickly build musical confidence and establish a solid pool of musical knowledge from which to draw from. Emuso allowed me to move past my roadblocks and showed me the many ways to play a piece of music. I recommend this product to all musicians!Ed Majewski
You have a very inspiring way to explain theory! I never have a lot of interest to theory because I didn´t understand what my teacher was talking about. It was like he was talking completely different language! Now when I read these lessons you´ve written I get excited to learn again, even when I don´t understand everything (because of my language barrier) it sets me to right mood and mindset to learn and study music again. It´s just an awesome feeling like I´d be sixteen and found a guitar for the very first time!Jouni0tuovinen
