The creators of YourScore are Brian and Amanda Franco, two music teachers from the Central New York area.
They met in college when Brian conducted the pit of a student run production of “Fiddler on the Roof” in which Amanda played the violin. Collectively they have taught Elementary Band, General Music, and Chorus, Middle School Chorus and General Music, High School Chorus and Band, and courses on Music Technology, Music Industry, Theater, and Popular Music. They have run and worked at several different summer camps across New York State, as well as directing and choreographing musicals together.
After the birth of their first son in June 2017, they both had shifts in their priorities - they now had more than ever on their plates. After taking stock of their professional responsibilities, the Francos realized that they wanted to help teachers like themselves save time and energy by providing them with a better product when it comes to choosing repertoire for their young ensembles. They combined Brian’s love of composition and music technology with their understanding of the music education community and its needs. Their goal is to provide young instrumental ensemble teachers with the ability to have complete control over their repertoire, so that it can suit the needs of their students, their ensembles, and their school culture. Hopefully you can see that this has been a labor of love, and they are eager to see the difference that YourScore can make in the lives of music teachers.
Today, the Francos enjoy spending tons of time with their son Emerson, their family and friends, traveling, cooking, and seeking out the best cup of coffee. They are looking forward to this adventure of being business owners and helping music teachers globally save time and energy while providing their students with quality repertoire that meets their needs.
