Our Mission

We believe in the power of music.

Our mission is to equip educators to engage today’s students in academic, social, and emotional learning.

We believe music is the key to unlocking student emotion and inspiring a lifelong love of learning!

Music City Roots

QuaverEd was founded in 2009 as QuaverMusic.com, with headquarters on historic Music Row in Nashville, TN. Founders David Mastran and Graham Hepburn set out to support K-8 music educators with high-quality teaching resources that would truly engage today’s students.

Innovation in Online Curriculum

In 2013, we released PreK-8 General Music curriculum resources, the first fully-digital offering for the elementary general music market. The combination of sound pedagogy and easy-to-use technology hit home with music teachers right away.
