Our History

The concept of QuaverEd grew from a friendship between David V. Mastran and Graham Hepburn, whose lives intersected in 2002 on a cruise ship. For several years, the pair collaborated on musical ventures while Graham worked as a music teacher in England and David started Mastran Music Group in Nashville, TN.

Throughout Graham’s trips to the United States, they found they had a shared vision: to develop a new and exciting way to communicate the wonderful world of music to young people. This vision evolved into QuaverMusic.com.

David and Graham began working on an innovative model for presenting musical concepts to elementary school students, drawing on the expert counsel of music teachers and administrators from across the country. In 2011, they launched a series of video episodes that featured Graham as “Quaver,” a music shop proprietor teaching young customers the fundamentals of music.

These videos proved so successful that the growing QuaverEd team was motivated to develop a fully accredited music curriculum for grades K-8.

With a decade of experience supporting skill development in the music classroom, the QuaverEd team saw an opportunity to have a broader impact. They decided to create QuaverSEL (now known as QuaverReady), an innovative SEL curriculum for Pre-K through 5 students. Soon after, Mastran Music Group officially rebranded to QuaverEd, Inc.

Since then, QuaverEd has grown to encompass QuaverMusic, QuaverReady, QuaverHealth•PE, and Quaver Pre-K! Music remains at the heart of our products as we continue to bring our vision to life.

2011 - Quaver Essentials is founded. 2013 - Quaver Music website is launched. 2019 - Quaver SEL debuts. 2020 - Quaver Pre-K debuts. Quaver Ed is established. 2021 - Quaver Health PE debuts. 2022 Quaver SEL is rebranded to Quaver Ready.
