Was I scammed 1/5
So I used this for a week didn’t really like left it there for a while when I receive a payment of $120 of what? Yousician I never signed up for anything or did mostly anything coincidence it charge the premium waste of time
Amazing App! 5/5
I love this app. I practice so much more now than I did when I was trying to learn chords and songs on my own. I have 17 hours of total playtime now and am at level 4.
I love that total practice and play time are tracked. It would be perfect if in a future version daily/weekly playtime was also tracked. Currently, stars are tracked this way in a nice format, but stars are pretty useless in showing commitment, considering practice time doesn't earn stars and is just as important.
Thank you Yousician!
It is really interesting learning guitar from this app. My skill is better and better. It is easy to learn, more fun then follow the youtuber. Great app
Very Helpful 5/5
Makes learning fun with game style challenges: l love it!!
Awesome...except for one thing. 5/5
I used to like playing piano, I would always put it off until the day my piano lesson came. But with Yousician I’ve started playing every single day. Thanks for making this amazing app. I just wish you would find some other way to earn money from the app instead of having people pay for a membership. But yet again thank!
Rekindled my guitar passion 5/5
It does what it says. After not playing for years, I didn't know how to pick the guitar back up. This made it easy.
Maybe a little warning about the fee 1/5
Good app but be careful about the 120 dollar fee after the trial period which, surprise surprise, renews automatically...
I started this app on the bases that it said 9.99 a month for 12 months. Then they snatch the whole 119.99 at once. Other than that I would have used the app happily!! So now I have to wait the 5 to 7 business days for my money that came out with in seconds of purchase!!
Maybe but fix waits 5/5
It's good for learning I'm playing guitar but they need to stop making time waits. I know you make a app for money but some of us want to play freely at times cost. But when their is waits people don't learn. I just consider that bad but the whole app is good but I want them to fix that
Touch screen 3/5
I don’t know if anyone else has this issue but, when I use this app, not all the touch screen options on it are available, and this becomes frustrating very easily! For example, when I’m practicing a song and want to pause, I have to touch pause a bunch of time for it to register what I am doing. Thanks!! Besides that, DOPE
I hate it 2/5
So I'm learning bass and at first this app was great, but then something started to bother me. Notes that I was obviously playing correctly weren't being counted and it would say I did it wrong. This is incredibly annoying, especially when you're trying to get to the next lesson. So this resulted in me getting so angry I threw my iPad across a room. Honestly good idea but I wouldn't recommend.
Love it. 4/5
I really enjoy this app. It allows me to do things I wouldn’t other wise have the means or motive to do. I have a hard time with retention & it allows me to repeat what I’m struggling with multiple times. Amazing so far.
Good lesson guide 4/5
Good, a bit pricy for some. May be a reasonable substitute for
A human when expediency and situations demand, but the human teacher is best.
Making progress and enjoying it! 5/5
Picked up a guitar a week ago knowing nothing and have found this app a godsend! Easy, fun and very well made. Worth every penny
Slight bug with this version 3/5
I love this app, but something is going on where I have to tap below the button to make it work... annoying cause sometimes it takes me like 5-6 try’s to get it
By Sender riwhheke
I think it is a great way to effectively learn different instruments. From the minute I got it, I was addicted!
Wow. Yousician makes learning fun! 5/5
I'm learning how to play bass guitar and this has been the best tool I've found by far. I tried one-on-one lessons for a while but was having way more fun and making way more progress with Yousician. I signed up for the premium service for 12 months (which was less than a month worth of lessons) and I play it almost every day.
There are little snags, of course but they are never more than an inconvenience that is almost always resolved by rebooting the iPad. Otherwise it is flawless and I truly look forward to advancing to the next song, the next skill, and the next level.
Special thanks to the crew at Yousician for constantly adding fun and challenging new songs. Thanks also to the other Yousician users who add great popular songs to the available tracks. Please keep 'me coming!
This app is amazing! Really helps you learn how to play with the small mini games after each cord you learn, and listens to make sure you are playing the right note! Wouldn’t be where I am without it!
Im trying to learn a melody 4/5
Im trying to learn a melody and writting the notes down is incredibly hard since im struggling for it to accept the notes the touch sensibility is quite strong i have trouble for it to accept it
Could Be Better 3/5
By Shadow Azzy
It works most of the time but sometimes it doesn’t read the sounds of my guitar correctly. I spend my limited practice time trying to get the app to read the strings and chords correctly but it never does.
Terrible UI 3/5
By Greyy von Monroe
It’s a good app for learning but that UI is the worst I’ve ever seen. Everything is shrunk down in size to fit the screen and makes the entire thing a mess
Worst game ever! 1/5
By Hat YouTube
This game is so bad i totally do not recommend it. When i was trying to learn piano it kept freezing and not letting me move past this one simple note. It kept saying, play this note, with no way for me to move on.
chrashes a lot 1/5
I like this app, but with the recent upgrade it crashes a lot and pauses too much because it doesn’t hear the notes I guess.
Mostly really good, needs a little work 4/5
By Giant robot war
I did the trial and really enjoyed the app so decided to follow through and pay for the year for the multi instrument option.
-the songs are mostly enjoyable to play.
-the lessons are broke down fairly short so no more excuses about not having enough time to practice. You have 10 minutes stop lying to yourself and do it.
-keeps track of hours played/practiced and has star rating system so if you’re driven by wanting to get a “perfect score” this will be right for you.
-you can test out of things if you already know them which is useful. The guitar and piano are broken down into three learning categories so you can test out more specifically in certain areas while not neglecting other things.
-Super comprehensive. I picked up a keyboard found it fairly easy to advance.
-as far as guitar goes if you’re using all steel strings I’ve noticed the app has a more significant problem recognizing certain chords. I thought I forgot how to play but switched to my other other acoustic that has nylon strings the app suddenly recognized the C chord again. This could also be because nylon strings are more forgiving but I did some experiments with the app and eventually determined that I am not actually incompetent. It definitely had me doubting myself especially since C isn’t exactly a challenging chord to play.
-similar problem on piano, occasionally F won’t be recognized, and it seems to always be the same keys. I’ve mostly solved this by turning up the volume significantly but obviously that’s not great for apartment living. It doesn’t happen enough to be much of a problem, though.
-the app has to be restarted occasionally as the sound and mic will stop working. Not really too big of a deal but something that should be fixed.
-in practice mode there is no count in after one play through. I don’t understand this concept as it’s very jarring to restart the song immediately onto the first note and never in my life has music been practiced this way. I think I would like this fixed the most because it completely messes with the rhythm. Not a terrible problem since it’s practice mode but would be a lovely fix that would make my casual practices go a little more smoothly.
Synopsis: I’ve been playing music for a long time and have never been too great at practicing or understanding certain things. This app has been a game changer for me. I can’t say it’ll be for everyone, primarily people who are more advanced, but if you’ve struggled with music your whole life despite having a solid understanding and kind of want to shape up what you know this might be what you’re looking for.
Love This! But.... 5/5
I absolutely love this app. I have no problem with the premium membership being expensive, however I think you would get more participation in the app if the amount of free time was extended from
10 minutes a day to 30 minutes or an hour. That way people could because more familiar with the app and become more willing to sign up for a membership. I think the fact that it's 10 minutes long, really turns people off of this amazing app.
I am extremely disappointed with this app it looks great and like it would be a lot of fun but every time I get halfway through my first learning session the app freezes every time and I have not been able to complete one session even after buying premium. I am in new guitar owner and was looking for a quick and easy way to practice on the go but if I can’t complete a single session then what’s the use pretty bummed that I couldn’t get through any of the learning tutorials. Hopefully you can do something to fix this in the future so other people won’t have to deal with this problem.
Good app 5/5
Way too low FPS 1/5
By Gentle user
It’s been working horribly lately. I tried to play a song twice but it just crashed when I tried to play it. Also for some reason the frame rate is very low now. It’s probably about 15 frames per second.
Good lessons but... 3/5
Every time an advertisement comes up to get the premium after I pressed the later button it just freezes and I can never click it also when I hit the back button or want to select things it always freezes and I have to click it at least 50 times for it to work. I have an iPhone SE and I am updated to the latest iOS there’s no way that this app can lay that badly at all this needs to be fixed
It doesn't hear my guitar even though it is hooked up to an amp and right next to my phone.
Not worth your time 1/5
I downloaded this app and sign up everything after start practicing its keep saying press C on your screen when i press it does not do anything at all i tried many times ... we’ll if you want to try it best of luck ..
Please add this 4/5
I love this app but I looked in sooooo many apps for violins and I found nothing :( I have one and I only know one song it’s like a violin is not a instrument :( so can you please add a violin please thx :)
Loveing it 4/5
I learned soooo much that I can now play other songs to thanks to this app I can do it now
Ugh I feel like it doesn't teach me anything it just tells me what to do and gives me songs it very frustrating especially for guitar.
App doesn’t work 3/5
It forces you to hit the keys on your piano before playing the song, which in and of itself is fine. The problem is, it never detects my piano and it won’t let me exit so I get stuck since the “skip” button doesn’t work. Irritating, and I hope it gets fixed.
Incredible Application, buy what’s the problem with E Minor? 4/5
By Neil in AZ
This is a great application that will challenge your abilities and persuade you to learn music you don’t play regularly. The songs are a lot of fun and there are lot of options and modules to tap into. The daily lessons can be challenging, which also increase your mental strength and endurance.
The only problem I run into, is playing E and E Minor. I have to work very hard to get the application to recognize the chords. I tune regularly, and have tested a number of guitars, but I still get the same results. It can be frustrating, because I find myself groaning at playing songs with chords. Other than that, you will definitely learn a lot, and I hope the next release will include better chord recognition.
I never knew I could learn so much in such little time!!!!
Started out good... 2/5
Started out fine, but very discouraging when only one song choice forces you to play something that you have no interest in learning. This leads to frustration & unable to progress; I’ve stopped using the app!
Finally can learn 5/5
I can finally learn how to play the guitar without going to a guitar lesson.
It keeps me coming back for more 5/5
Just started learning the guitar and Yousician is very helpful. I started out with you tube lessons which got me going but I had no structure to my practicing. Yousician gives me that structure that I needed!
Good App Overall 4/5
I don’t see why ALL of the songs have to be at such a FAST tempo. WTH... REALLY ANNOYING. : (
Could be 5 stars but still needs more improvement. 3/5
By Dj Dominox
I love the mentality of this application in terms of teaching musical instruments and music theory. Unfortunately with guitar lessons it sometimes does not pick up every note you play when you pick a fret note that is close to an open or the timings are not correct due to the delay in the application s sound pick up/mic reading I would estimate this at about 4-5/tenths of a second( a huge gap in space)
NOT FOR ACOUSTIC GUITARS WITHOUT AN AMPLIFIER due to microphone pick up delays and timing.
Also add a true monthly subscription for $19.99 or a $9.99 for one instrument and not the false advertising of $9.99 a month but charged yearly $119.99.
P.S. Could you also make the free session longer like 2 hours or so and not 20-30 minutes.
BEST Guitar Teacher on planet! FREE? lol SHOULD COST 5 X More! 5/5
By Zendia Von
I WANNA say THANKYOU FOR A FRONTIER THAT someone super duper BRILLIANT, finally reached! If only i’d had this 20 yrs AGO🥇😍!!!!
Ive played since 1980. IF A PERSON DOESNT HAVE TIME to learn an Instrument FROM The Singularly BEST & MOST INFINITELY ECONOMICAL WAY TO LEARN? Then however one manages their TIME? is related to ones choices of PRIORITIES & should REALIZE THAT, they’ve done Everything except PLAY FOR YOU!!! Im offended that any person would insult “My Yousician” by saying, “Lessons R $100 each, but i don’t have TIME OR MONEY🤔....SO IT Should be Free.” Good Grief Woman! 🙄what was it that you don’t get between $100 AN HOUR for a Live Coach ~ And THIS PRICELESS PROGRAM? Yousician COULD CHARGE 5 X what they do! And uses it and doesn’t need more attention because they are the best there’s not even any app remotely similar to compare them to all need to realize that this is the only way to learn of its kind. And AS A 30 yr Singer/Rhythm Player? I RECOMMEND Yousician SO HIGHLY THAT IN My opinion? YOUSICIAN IS FREE ~ For What Bang U Get 4 Yer Buck$! There has never been anything close to THIS OUT THERE! Whomever came up with this in Australia is a completely brilliant Thinker & musician!! And... you cannot do any better, learn any faster or ever have any more fun learning than you can with Yousician!
Going to a teacher is not fun ~ YET YOUSICIAN is completely different. I see it so useful that you could charge five times what you do charge now and it would maybe still not be enough money as far as how much your APP is worth. Its priceless & the knowledge, style of Lesson progression & everything that’s been put together in this program is one-of-a-kind! The first of its kind and anything similar to it that falls after Yousician is just going to be a copy. Thank you very much for your most useful way to learn to play an instrument for the most amazing price that I’ve ever seen as a 30 year musician.
I’m from Austin but now in Hawai‘i!
Aloha from Maui 🏝🐬🎸🎹🎼
Has potential 2/5
While the style of playing is interesting and good for beginners, half the time you are being bombarded by ads about premium. Also the lesson time seems to decrease after you use the app for while. They should probably upgrade their sound detecting system, very often I will play a C or a D chord perfectly, but it won’t pick it up. I feel like this app is a great idea and has a lot of potential to be useful. There are just so many kinks that should be ironed out. Until then this app isn’t nearly at its top state.
P.S. Why the hell do they need to have a 30 second long ad about premium. They should have the ad after maybe 7 lessons, not in between every single one.
Love it! 5/5
It works on all of my devices and is very convenient. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to play an instrument but doesn't have the money for lessons.
Affordable, Great Practice! 5/5
By Lizzie Casey
I love that Yousician is available for any one on any budget. I don’t have room for an extra $10 a month to be spent in this season of my life so it is very nice to be able to grow as a guitarist even for a few minutes each day.
My only constructive criticism is to put the letter of the note with the fretboard numbers and fingers so that new guitar players can start getting used to that right away.
Thank you for a great app!
Hands down the best! 5/5
I wish I’d had this app years ago! This app keeps me interested in learning how to play, and teaches faster than any other book or video series I’ve tried - and more than I learned with an instructor for six months. It has a ‘crawl-walk-run’ approach to teaching, scaling up the difficulty as you master the lessons. You can take skill tests to advance, if you prefer, and you can go back and review lessons you’ve already completed (so you can get all gold stars!). Great presentation, excellent teaching tool, good price point. Highly recommend this for anyone who wants to learn the guitar (haven’t tried the other options).
Very frustrating App. 1/5
When I first started playing guitar I was pretty stoked with this app. Although I was mislead to believe that it was $10 per month and I could cancel at any time. After the first few months it has become tedious and extremely frustrating. My guitar is in tune but it doesn’t recognize open strings when I play therefore stalling my progress to open new lessons and new songs. After emailing the company they told me to uninstall then reinstall the app, hahah. Same problems nothing changed and basically I told the company the app was virtually useless. Also every time I want to play a song which a user has put in via YouTube it won’t load and I get a song timed out or it it does happen to load it’s so choppy there is no way I can play it functionally. Yousicians response was they don’t guarantee any user loaded songs to work....only their songs, even though those songs don’t work either. Save yourself some frustration and give this app a pass. Customer service from Yousician was less helpful than the actual app itself. Also all of the songs that do work are terrible and almost have a pretentious sound to them or a mocking sound of the intended artist it’s supposed to mimic. If I could give less than 1 star I would....
By Omi o Robbie
It's great I have no complaints at all!
Great app.. could be better 3/5
By Alien f$&@er
I love this app and how much of help for me to practice the guitar.. though I hate this premium stuff and the limits we have at the free version.. like seriously you can earn money from adds and in-app purchases not limiting our learning time. And you should add the proper notation as a learning option instead of tablature only
