Practice Music with SilMo

It is clear that world market of k-pop has been growing rapidly. It seems more and more youths are getting into the music industry.  Therefore there is a high demand for practical music education these days in Korea. There has been intense competition in college examinations.  Competition rate goes over 300:1 for vocal part, 100:1 for instrument part and there have been more than 53,000 applicants for K-pop colleges in the year of 2016. However, students are not provided enough opportunities to test their performing skills. Also, there are very few systematical programs for examinations.  Therefore, here is SilMo!

Korean Startup SilMo IBT is an internet-based mock test system for practical music, mainly k-pop. You can get real-time communication tool through live video lessons in SilMo, even music lessons from college professors.  With the world moving more towards a digital age, this platform is perfect for this generation. SilMo IBT also provides you with definite evaluation criteria provided by current professors. You can use it with ease anywhere and anytime. SilMo is available not only for PCs but also on Mobile apps and tablets.

Extensive reserved faculties from Korea’s Top 10 colleges are supporting SilMo. Therefore, abundant and clear evaluation comments by current professors are listed on it. Students can get great real checkup opportunities throughout SilMo IBT and prepare for their practical music education easily.


What’s provided by SilMo:

  • easy access to SilMo Web Base Available at Home PC, Mobile Apps, Tablet
  • Automatic Musical Theory Test Offered-Harmonics, Score Reading, Listening Test
  • Posted Video Evaluated by 3 Current Professors and Real College Advisors
  • Average Grade Points and Advisors’ Comments Informed to the Students

Here’s how the test process works. First, the students have to post a video that they have performed. Then the faculty is placed automatically. After that, students have to take theory tests including Harmonics, Score Reading, and a Listening test. Finally, you can get notifications of both the theory test and the video. Every result includes average grade points and advisors’ comments for the students.

In the current market, there is no business model that provides mock performance examination for practical music that is based on the internet as well as evaluated by about 50 professors currently in position. This would be a great opportunity for those who could not afford expensive offline practical music lessons and it would solve the regional and financial unfairness. Also, the improvement of practical music skills by students is expected with SilMo.
