Maestro / Music Communication


The Maestro enables musicians all over the world to play together regardless of each individual’s location and time zone. Thus, they can learn from each other, play more frequently, experience different cultures, and fully engage themselves in a musical community. All of the electronics are in the base within the case, so the data is transmitted to the transparent screen through a bluetooth connection while the power is received through audio jacks at both ends of the telescoping pole. With the user interface in the screen and the speakers in the case, musicians can hear each other and play together to create one beautifully unified sound.
