It has been said that music is the universal language.  The strum of a chord is truly understandable in any language, which makes it such a helpful tool in communicating emotion, without ever having to utter a single syllable.  This is why music is so critical to the culture of the world, and why it is even more critical that people have opportunities to learn how to be musical.

A brand new app named On the Music Path looks to agree with this sentiment and help to try to bring a whole new horizon of education within the iOS consumer’s grasp.

“… On the Music Path is an iPad app that offers in-depth lessons from world-renowned musicians on how to play the guitar, piano, drums and bass, including:Jackson Browne on fingerstyle guitar, Ravi Shankar on the sitar, Richard Thompson on acoustic rock guitar, Vonda Shepard on piano for singers, Lee Ritenour on jazz guitar, Leland Sklar on the bass, Kenny Sultan on the blues, Scott Tennant on classical guitar, Steve Postell on the fundamentals of how to play the guitar, and many, many others.” — VIA On The Path Developer Blog
