I've been taking my little man to some local parent-child music sessions in our local town. It's run by two very passionate and cheerful ladies who also happen to be quite talented at picking, reproducing and performing playsongs and lullabyes aimed at helping parents and children to engage through music.

Now, here's a great example of the entrepreneur seeing a hidden opportunity. These ladies have great content. They have a local passionate community, fostered over many years. They have created expensive CD's to sell and run sessions, and so are limited to what time they have available.

Their ability to earn is clearly capped with this model. But, with new technology and new content distribution methods, such as native mobile music apps, not only can their music reach more people than they are able to through their sessions, but the product can be far more interactive, engaging, entertaining and cost-effective for the end user.

So, I spent a little time building a prototype of what the iOS could be. Quite interesting really, in that it's simple and also quite technical with http streaming capability for rich media, download and create favourites to custom playlists, custom audio player controls...

Anyway, we'll see... perhaps I can help these ladies and ladies just like them to earn a good living doing something they really care about using methods they may not have considered. If not, at least I'll have the only Playsongs app on my phone for Rudi to play with...
