Learn the songs you love by taking music lessons from the artists themselves, with the Yousician music app’s new Spotlight courses.

Music app Yousician makes learning musical instruments accessible and fun for musicians of all levels, through interactive gameplay. Now users can learn songs by their favourite artists – taught by the artists who wrote them.

The new Spotlight courses include tricks and tips and customised tutorials, as well as exclusive performances and intimate stories from the artists on their careers so far.

First up is a course from GRAMMY-Award winning singer-songwriter Jason Mraz, who offers guitar and ukulele lessons on Yousician for his most famous songs, including the big hits “I’m Yours” and “I Won’t Give Up.”

The Yousician app is clear and engaging, offering guitar, ukulele, bass, piano and vocal lessons with chords, melodies and different playing styles explored. The layout is similar in feel to Guitar Hero.

Also in line for a Spotlight course in early 2022 is band Metallica, teaching guitar lessons. A partnership between Columbian musician Juanes and Duolingo will focus on teaching languages through music. The range of genre of the courses shows the wide appeal of the Yousician app to all budding instrumentalists regardless of what music they like to listen to.

Hadley Spanier, Head of Brand Marketing and Artist Relations at Yousician, said: “Time and again, our users have told us how much they love playing songs from their favourite artists. Our artist partners are thrilled about this new way to connect with fans, and we know our users will love this new hands-on approach. We are so excited for what’s ahead for Spotlight.”

The Spotlight course is available with Yousician’s Premium+ membership. You can try Yousician for free with a free trial.
