Working at Magic Instruments

We are a world class, close-knit team of engineers and product designers. Our mission is to create a world that inspires human connection through music playing. We give people all the joy of playing music without necessarily having to learn traditional methods. We are lowering the barrier to entry while raising the ceiling for musical expression and education.

We’re developing a new class of music instruments and the ecosystem around them, starting with our first product, a guitar that anyone can play using an intuitive UI on the fretboard and a mobile app to play your favorite songs, instantly. You could then also progress towards learning the traditional guitar in a fun and easy way.

We focus on the big question: How do we make it fundamentally easier for people to play music? We don't spend time and money stocking the pantry with trendy snacks, we instead invest our money in people and product development. We are building a meaningful product that sits at the intersection of music, computing and education, with huge growth potential, virtually limitless applicability and a significant demand.

We are building a massive corpus of music playing data - one of its kind - that enables us to be a superior music teacher through machine learning and AI.

This has never been done before

We are making playing guitar accessible to the masses and also providing them a fun and engaging way of learning it, without the upfront drudgery.

We are located in the sunny and vibrant Mission district in San Francisco, CA and just one block away from BART.

Come join us on this journey to democratize music.
