New Research Study from Skoove Reveals Self-Taught Musicians Dominate USA’s Chart

Berlin, Germany – (04-24-2024) -New research from Skoove, a top piano learning app, and the research experts at Crafins Studio reveals that a staggering 87% of the top 100 artists on Spotify in the US are self-taught, challenging traditional paradigms of music education. The research report, completed and made available in April of this year, identified trends in the growing accessibility of music creation and the democratization of the music industry. The study found that only 4% of the Spotify top 100 artists had obtained a music degree. An additional 4% started but did not complete a music degree program, revealing that the remaining 92% of artists observed in the study had neither begun nor completed a music degree. These statistics indicated that self-taught musicians are dominating the charts with their innovative sounds and authentic expression, and in the absence of formal musical education.

Today, it’s possible to learn an instrument, produce music and share that music independently without a traditional musical education. From apps and tutorials on YouTube to help you learn to play an instrument to platforms like TikTok and SoundCloud where artists can share their music. In some ways, the playing field is now more level.

  Captions: Pie chart illustrating the educational background of the top 100 Spotify artists in the USA, showing the majority do not have music degrees.

 The success of these artists shows that passion, creativity, and self-determination can break the barriers to entry, irrespective of their access to traditional education. This inspires musicians worldwide to pursue their dreams, regardless of their musical background.

  Captions: Pie chart showing that 87% of the top 100 Spotify artists in the USA did not receive tutoring or private lessons, highlighting the prevalence of self-taught musicians in the industry.


This trend underscores the importance of supporting and encouraging all forms of music education, acknowledging that the path to success is as varied as the artists themselves. We’d love to see an era where the barriers to entry in music are being dismantled, paving the way for a more inclusive, diverse, and vibrant musical landscape.

Florian Plenge, CEO of Skoove, says “You could argue that learning outside of the regimented structure of formal education may allow self-taught individuals to express their creativity more freely as their learning and engagement with their instrument is unconstrained. Without traditional frameworks and support, they have to be resourceful in their learning and stand on their own two feet.”


About the data

The underlying data for the analyses came from multiple sources, including ChartMasters’ list of Top Spotify Artists, Wikidata, and manual research and aggregation. To extract insights about musicians who are in bands and groups, Skoove looked at characteristics of the lead composer or band frontperson.

Unplug and share The moment with Merritt Toys and Games

Merritt, British Columbia: Selling Board games has been Mike’s Life and the modern world is filled with distractions, and it can be challenging to disconnect from technology and the internet. However, it is essential to take a break from technology and engage in other activities, such as playing board games.

Work Management Games

Board games have been around for centuries, and they are a fantastic way to relax, socialize, and have fun. In this article, we will explore the importance of unplugging and playing board games, work management and set collecting games, and two popular board games: Viticulture and Lords of Waterdeep.

Mike States The Importance of Unplugging and Playing Board Games

In today’s world, people are always connected to their smartphones, laptops, and other devices. This constant connection to technology can be overwhelming and stressful. Playing board games is an excellent way to unplug and relax. Board games provide a break from the constant stimulation of technology and give people an opportunity to engage in face-to-face interactions with friends and family. In addition, board games can improve cognitive function and reduce stress levels.

One of the benefits of playing board games is that they can be a great way to socialize. Board games require people to interact with each other, which can help strengthen relationships and build new ones. Board games also allow people to practice essential social skills such as communication, collaboration, and problem-solving.

Board games can also be an excellent way to improve cognitive function. Many board games require players to use critical thinking skills, problem-solving, and strategy. These skills can help improve memory, concentration, and decision-making abilities. Board games are also a great way to improve creativity and imagination.

Playing board games can also reduce stress levels. Board games provide a fun and relaxing way to unwind and take a break from the stresses of everyday life. Board games can also help improve mood and promote feelings of happiness and well-being.

Work Management and Set Collecting Games are must try says Mike

Work management and set collecting games are board games that require players to manage resources, plan ahead, and make strategic decisions. In these games, players must balance competing priorities and allocate resources efficiently to achieve their objectives.

One example of a work management game is Agricola. In Agricola, players take on the role of a farmer and must manage their resources, such as land, animals, and crops. Players must balance their time between farming, building, and raising a family to succeed in the game.

Set collecting games, on the other hand, require players to collect sets of cards or other items to score points. One example of a set collecting game is Settlers of Catan. In Settlers of Catan, players collect resources, such as wood, brick, and wheat, to build settlements and cities. Players must also trade resources with other players to succeed in the game.

Work management and set collecting games are excellent for people who enjoy planning, strategy, and resource management. These games require players to think ahead and make decisions based on their long-term objectives.

Viticulture Board Game

Viticulture is a board game designed for 1-6 players and is set in the world of wine-making. In Viticulture, players take on the role of vineyard owners and must manage their vineyards, harvest grapes, and produce wine to score points. The game is designed for players aged 14 and up and takes approximately 45-90 minutes to play.

The game is played over several rounds, with each round representing one season. Players must plan ahead and manage their resources efficiently to produce the best wine and earn the most points. The game also includes a worker placement mechanic, where players must assign workers to different tasks to gain resources or take actions.

One of the unique features of Viticulture is the visitor card system. Visitors are special cards that can be played during the game to provide bonuses or special abilities.
