Marcus Blackwell is changing the way students learn math with his groundbreaking STEAM Technology App, Make Music Count. The smartphone app is designed to excite students about learning mathematics. Also available to parents and teachers, Make Music Count takes innovation and piano playing to the next level.
Blackwell is a graduate Morehouse College with a B.S. in Mathematics and worked for GE Energy as a Lead Modeling Analyst while serving as the Music Director and pianist at Elizabeth Baptist Church.
“Make Music Count was created after I realized how I learned to play the piano,” said Blackwell. “As a pianist and organist who plays music by ear, I realized I built my music chords by applying mathematics versus simply listening and playing what I heard,” he added.
Some of the key features and benefits of this new app are that it is excellent for students with special needs and dyslexia. Similarly, learning math and solving problems enhances the mental growth of the student and makes them smarter and more active. This app is one of the fastest ways to learn piano and be able to play like a professional. The Educational Technology (EdTech) application is basically a 2 for one application, which is all about building confidence and performance.
According to the Blackwell, learning music through math is more engaging, interesting, and exciting for the students. Another amazing fact about this inspiring initiative is that this new curriculum sees an average of 28% increase in math test scores.
