berMuzik is literally translated to as “musicking“, which stands for making, listening, and interacting with oneself and others via music. The term musicking was popularised by the late ethnomusicologist, Christopher Small, as a way to understand the nature of the music act and its function in human life (Small, 1999).

At berMuzik, we believe that music connects with people through many ways. That is why we come out with ways to make your music making experiences a special one. Our unique approaches are based on current research findings linked to psychology, music, and education. Be it an event to improve team cohesion or a new journey to the world of music, berMuzik will make it a positive and unforgettable one.

Let’s make music together, let’s berMuzik!

Our Motivation
We aim to help people with disabilities express themselves through user-centered design. We believe that if somebody relies upon a product for their everyday life, it should be a joy to use.

Our Name
exyo, is short for express yourself, because our designs aim to empower the user, with the freedom to be themselves, when using the device they rely upon.

Our Story
We are 3 mechanical engineering graduates from The University of Sheffield who want to invest our skills in helping people.

We started out by helping 2 individuals called Louis and Callum, whom we had the opportunity to design medical devices for, during our time at university. This inspired us to set about addressing problems faced by people with disabilities around the world.

exyo is the birth of an opportunity: To have a real impact on the lives of others; by reaching out to improve physical circumstance and alleviate the stresses and stigmatization that arise through having to deal with cumbersome devices.
