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.

I discovered Yousician in spring 2016 and have been using it now for 3 months with my students in their lessons. Since then the dedication towards practising, concentration and desire to play piano increased enormously. It was the end of asking to take a break or going to toilet constantly. The process of learning became so much more efficient and the improvement was visible already in few weeks.

Moro! Building a truly global company in Helsinki

By Chris Thür, CEO of Yousician.

I was an international student at Tampere University of Technology when I met my co-founder Mikko the first time. Little did we know that together we would build a company, that would grow to become a truly global actor in music education. Today, Yousician is not only a successful music education platform, but a truly multicultural company: We have users basically from all over the world (including Tonga, Turkmenistan and North Korea) but also the team behind the application is genuinely multicultural. Even though the company is located in Finland, about half of our team members are originally from somewhere else. This has been the way of Yousician from the day one. First there was only me, a guy from Switzerland and Mikko. Gradually we have built a team of currently around 50 people from 17 different countries.

Juan Valencia, or Mister V. as his students affectionately call him, is the founder of Guitar Starz Club. Over 100 students in Toronto, Canada are learning to play the guitar thanks to Guitar Starz Club. Juan has been teaching guitar for many years. It wasn’t until he discovered Yousician by pure coincidence that took his teaching to a new level. His students have never been motivated more. Now they’re eager to practice at home between lessons, allowing Juan to cover new material in class rather than going over previous lessons again and again.
