Hello. My name is Melissa McLean and I am currently working on my thesis project for an MFA in Web Design New Media at the Academy of Art University.

Next semester is approaching and I am looking for an interaction design professional who is passionate about their career and is interested in sharing their knowledge and fostering a young professional in the development of their thesis project.

Specifically, my thesis project is an application for the iPad that allows a user to compose music with very little knowledge of music theory or the ability to read or write music.

If you have experience designing for, or are interested in exploring interaction design for an iPad or iPhone, and you have some knowledge of music, I would love to hear from you!

Being an Advisor will require us meeting (either in person or online) for one hour per week. I have attached for your convenience a pdf file that explains fully what will be required. 

Hopefully this sounds like an interesting opportunity to you. If so, please contact me via email at

I am very dedicated to and passionate about my thesis project and I hope to build a user-friendly and engaging application. I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Melissa,

I don't have any iPad or music design experience and since I'm based in the UK, I suspect I'm not the ideal UX Professional for your needs.
Sorry I couldn't be of help to you.
Good luck with your thesis.
