stuff songs are made of

Brk.Down is based on the observation that early years of learning to play an instrument goes into mastering technqiue & theory, the ‘elements’ of music, but usually without any context and making this phase cumbersome for learners.

Can a person’s own music preferences be a context for learning these elements?  

Brk.Down is a Spotify App that gives users a breakdown of their songs into its elements and also give recommendations for songs to learn a particular element. To do this the app makes use of person’s music preferences pulled off Spotify. The element information itself being crowd-sourced and ratable.
