Busselton music producer Kaleb Treacy has developed an app to help students learn the basics and to assist musicians to write music.
The Imocean Studio owner has lived with cerebral palsy since birth and has learned how to adapt his abilities to support his lifestyle and interests and now works as a music producer at his studio.
He completed a music production course in Bunbury six years ago and has since taught students at the school as well.
“I have loved music all my life and wanted to do it as a job,” he said.
When Mr Treacy was a music student, he found the theory section difficult so he found a way to simplify the learning process.
When he was teaching other music students he noticed they struggled with the basics as well, so Mr Treacy taught them using his method and found they picked up the basics much easier.
Mr Treacy has now developed an app titled One Step Ahead Music using his method, which took him one year to complete, to help other people who were learning music.
“Even people who know music can use it to refer back to when they are writing music,” he said.
“The app works in all different ways, you can pick up a guitar or use it if you are playing piano, it will teach you all the basic notes,” he said.
The app was designed to help anyone learn a musical instrument in their own time while also being a handy tool for professionals, with the aim of inspiring, encouraging and helping others with their music journey.
Music executive Warren Huart said Mr Treacy was one of the hardest working people in music that the had come across.
Huart, who has worked with Aerosmith, Ace Frehley, The Fray and Rick Springfield said, Mr Treacy’s work ethic was matched by his talent.
"Kaleb cares so much about the music learning process that he has found a unique way to teach. Simple, easy to follow and thoroughly enjoyable,” he said.
