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.

Guitar Starz Club Enjoys Huge Success with Yousician

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.

How Yousician Transformed Instruction in my General Music Classroom

We’re always excited to hear from music educators that have discovered Yousician, but we were particularly in awe when Natasha reached out to us with the wonderful video she made together with her students. Naturally, we could not wait to hear more and soon had a great call learning about all the wonderful things happening in the Music Class at Deal School. Since Yousician is a big community of learners, we care very much about educators helping each other with tips & tricks. We’re delighted that Natasha agreed to write up her experience and share with them with all of us.

When talking to hundreds of music educators worldwide we’ve heard the same problem over and over: no matter how engaging you make your lessons, it’s tough to make sure your students actually practice when they go home. The result? Some students only play their instruments during lessons and show little progress.
