Playalong was founded in 2002 by musicians from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and University College of Music Education in Stockholm, Sweden.
The aim was to provide music instruction courses to students who could not access training because of long queues to music colleges as well as to offer individually customized courses with new techniques wherever the students wanted the material delivered.
PlayAlong’s teachers all have documented higher education in music combined with many years experience as professional musicians. PlayAlong’s core values in learning are educational, personal and fun.
PlayAlong produces and records the educational material using video music lessons. Currently, lessons are available for more than ten musical instruments and singing lessons. Distribution is by DVD, the web, mp3 for both sound and images using downloadable and streaming lessons. Playalong’s endeavor to always be at the cutting edge of technical development means that it can now provide video lessons in a broad range of media.
So far, PlayAlong has released more than 20 music instruction courses for guitar, bass, drums and keyboard on DVD. More than 25,000 DVDs have been sold, of which 12,000 are the Plej! Guitar DVD. PlayAlong’s customers include private individuals, teachers and colleges who use PlayAlong’s material as a complement to their traditional education.
