Jamming in the Jungle With Yousician


In November we returned to Southeast Asia for our annual work retreat, or Y/Edu, as we officially call it, to spend a month in Bali, Indonesia!


Personalized Lessons and a new Home Screen for Everyone

With the update to Yousician version 2.36, we’re rolling out some new features to everyone, and wanted to tell you all about them. First up is a handy new Home screen.

Junction 2016 micro-challenge solution

At Yousician we are passionate both about music and technology; more than a half of our team are programmers and of course we could not miss Junction 2016 – Europe’s largest hackathon, that took place in Helsinki on the pre-Slush weekend of November 25-27th this year. We wanted to do something special there and literally brought music to the event: the hackers were invited to try Yousician and freely play our instruments; the Yousician Arcade Box (built as a hack day project by our developers by the way) filled the main corridor with music from Friday to Sunday evening!

Standard Notation for Guitar, Bass and Ukulele.

Yousician now supports standard notation for string instruments! We are excited, not only because this has been one of the top 3 features most requested by users, but because it is a good skill to learn for well-rounded musicians.


YouTube videos are now available as backing tracks!

We are excited to announce a new feature that was highly demanded since we released SongCreator: now it is possible to put your YouTube videos as backing tracks to your songs, and play them within Yousician.

Song Creator Contest 2016 – Top5 songs open for voting


It’s not been easy, and we’d like to congratulate everyone who submitted a song for the Song Creator Contest 2016. Playing and listening to the songs has been great experience!

After careful selection, here are the Top5 songs we are opening for community voting.


Adam Roach and his students’ outstanding results

After the release of the official results for the Australian and New Zealand Cultural Arts Examination Board (ANZCA), Adam Roach could barely contain himself from jumping for joy.


Song Creator Contest

We all have a melody in our mind, some tune we composed, perhaps just a basic idea for a full tune, a chord progression, a riff. Now’s the time to share it and win a brand new Chapman CAP10 America electric guitar!


Using Yousician in different teaching environments

By Tommi Aitala, professional guitar teacher with 20+ years of experience in Rauma, Finland.

The traditional way of learning to play an instrument has been a very formal one. One teacher, one book, with every student playing the same exercises and most motivated individuals becoming somewhat similar musicians. The more classically oriented, the more similar, since the repertoire is also more limited.
