Muse Group Launches to Support Music Tech Brands

LIMASSOL – APR 26, 2021 – Today we are pleased to announce the launch of Muse Group; established to support a portfolio of well-known and emerging music technology brands. Building on the success of Ultimate Guitar and MuseScore, Muse Group provides digital tools, resources, and content to musicians at each stage in their personal development.

Executive roles and company leadership of Ultimate Guitar will transition into similar roles in Muse Group with no other major structural or operational changes within the individual portfolio companies.

 "This move is a natural progression in our evolution as a company, allowing us to better support a collection of brands aligned around a shared purpose – to continually improve the quality of life for the ordinary musician" says Ultimate Guitar founder and Muse Group chairman Eugeny Naidenov.

"Our acquisition of MuseScore was simply a first step beyond the guitar segment" adds Muse Group CEO Michael Trutnev "and as we moved from guitar tabs into music notation and recently into education with MuseClass, it became clear that our current goals and future ambitions can be better served by organizing support for our brands under a new structure."

Muse Group brands include:

Ultimate Guitar
The world's largest community of musicians paired with an extensive catalog of tabs.
Founded in 1998, Ultimate Guitar has 300M+ users and a catalog of 1.5M guitar tabs.
