ilearnmusic.com was conceived in 2003, on a trip to Peaks Island, Maine, as co-founders
James Berry and David Page came up with the idea of developing a website to produce online
music lesson videos. This was before the days of Youtube, Google Video, and Web 2.0,

website, James and Dave realized that they had no money to buy bandwidth to produce
several videos. This posed a problem. Around this time, James' fellow music teacher Dave

website. James agreed this was a great idea and over a two year period, James and Dave A.
loaded up the website with several of their own classroom ideas, lesson plans, teacher
resources, and many other things that would be useful to students or teachers.
This became a popular idea and ilearnmusic.com grew to a website visited by over 80
countries worldwide, and an average of 400 visitors daily. As bandwidth and the rest of the
Internet world caught up with the idea of online videos, websites such as YouTube or video.g
allowed users to post videos on their sites for free and host the storage for these videos. This
