Why Soundfly?

Our dream, our team, and our instructors

WE BELIEVE THERE'S NO ONE RIGHT WAY TO PLAY MUSIC.

Everyone has a unique voice and the ability to express it through music.
We exist to nurture that voice and help you make the music that sounds good to you.

WE BELIEVE THAT THERE'S ALWAYS MORE TO LEARN.

Music is not a destination, but a journey. Whether you're picking up an instrument for the first
time or a full-time professional, we'll help you discover new things, open up new avenues,
and achieve new sounds.

WE BELIEVE IN THE CREATIVE POTENTIAL OF ALL ARTISTS TO
PURSUE THEIR PASSION IN A CHANGING WORLD.

The music industry is changing rapidly and requires new skills. It's no longer
enough to practice your instrument in isolation. We stand with and support artists
willing to stretch themselves in pursuit of their passion.

John

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.

Mahea

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.
