Ovelin raises $1.4M for music education games

February 9, 2012 | By Mike Rose




Newsbrief: Finnish startup developer Ovelin has raised $1.4 million in funding, with which it plans to expand on its WildChords guitar-teaching game for iPad.

Released last year, WildChords uses audio technology to listen to the sound of a guitar, and allows the player to progress through the game and earn more points if they are playing the correct chords and notes.

The round of funding was led by VC firm True Ventures, reports TechCrunch. Ovelin plans to use the money to bring WildChords to more platforms, while also offering lessons for different musical instruments.
