We're Here to Help You Unleash Your Creativity.

We're providing a home for the creative and curious to discover something new and take a leap forward in their musical journey.

On Soundfly, you can explore a great article about how your favorite artist achieved her sound, sign up for a free course that challenges you in a single sitting, or invest in your sound by joining a Mainstage course with a personal mentor.

Most importantly, we're here to nerd out with you about this magical thing we all love called music…

What We Stand For

journey easier and more fun.

Accessibility of
Great Education

We're committed to making sure that
a large part of our resources always
remain free and open.

Every Voice Matters,
Especially Yours

There's no one right way to play music. We celebrate your unique sound and the courage it takes to share it with the world.

John Hull

Head of Production

John is a self-proclaimed production nerd and composer who is behind the music featured in ads for Google, Jameson, Coca Cola, and more. When he is not making Soundfly videos interesting and fun, you will find him fishing with undying passion or engineering music in a castle in France.

Lisa is a pianist, award-winning songwriter, and graduate of Berklee College of Music who's passionate about making music education accessible to everyone. Outside of Soundfly, she runs the songwriting collaboration platform SongwriterLink, writes for music publications, and lives for the feeling of getting off a plane in a new city.

Mahea Lee

VP of Learning & Curriculum Development

Mahea is a classically trained pianist and composer whose greatest musical passion is lyrical songwriting, but she's been known to write the occasional fugue. She graduated from Berklee College of Music, now leads an electro-pop band, and believes there's no one right way to learn music.
