One of the things I was most excited about was being able to hear double stops on the violin - this is not doable on Zoom”

Esther King-Smith, Royal College of Music, London

What do we need for a great online lesson experience? Great sound, great video and the ability to communicate naturally. We need a simple interface because we want to focus on our music – not on adjusting settings or finding our way around. With Forte you log in and you are ready to go. Everything is right in front of you; easy and intuitive.”

Dennis Frehse, Senzoku Gakuen College of Music, Japan

I love the clarity of audio in Forte as well as the simplicity of the platform. The support team is exceptional.”

Glafkos Kontemeniotis, glafkosjazz.com

Renewed my faith in online music teaching. Thank you.”

Andrea Charles, Royal College of Music, London

I was so unsatisfied with Zoom that I searched high and low for the perfect online solution for piano lessons. One where you can hear dynamics, pedal use, and even play duets. Forte is it!”

Dana Griffith, Griffith Piano Studio, Virginia

It was very refreshing to switch to Forte from Zoom. I was surprised to be able to hear the beautiful tone of my students’ pianos. My students were happy that they didn't have to hear my complaints about the audio any longer. One of my students was thrilled that I could send her notes about her lesson instead of emailing her mother.”

Suzanne Romey, North Carolina

Forte solves many issues regarding dynamics, musical intention, and overall sound quality. It is also very easy and simple to use. I highly recommend this platform for any music teacher!”

Jesus Saenz, Musicians for the World

The sound quality on Forte is exceptional! This has amazing benefits for teaching music online and being able to hear the subtle nuances in my students playing. The biggest difference I've noticed is with no lag and continuous back and forth sound I can have a natural conversation and connect on a human level with my students.”

Ian Campbell, teacher, pianist, composer, www.iancampbellmusic.ca

My student and I both felt things sounded clearer. His drums sounded soooo much better. He thought the video looked better as well. It’s difficult to express, but it felt more natural...”

Steve Borgovini, drum teacher, Malaysia

I like how simple the app is compared to other video conferencing apps.”

Forte student

Forte is worth using if for no other reason that the sound is leaps and bounds ahead of any other online lesson platform I have used. Second to none. So easy to use.”

Hilary Travers, Australia

My daughter told me that Forte delivered on the nuanced audio experience we had been promised! She said it was very easy to discern the subtleties of her teacher's playing.”

Parent of Forte student

The teachers are incredibly inspiring and knowledgeable. Clearly, they not only know their craft, they are also adept at imparting their knowledge to a younger audience.”
