Yousician is one of the most established music-education services, charging subscriptions for its app teaching people how to play a range of instruments and sing. However, the company also has a longstanding secondary product called GuitarTuna, a guitar-tuning app that has been downloaded more than 140m times. Now Yousician is bringing a subscription model to that app too, based on licensed music.

A new feature called GuitarTuna Play will let its users segue neatly from tuning into playing a range of songs on their guitar, courtesy of a catalogue of “thousands” of compositions from the rock, pop, folk, alternative and country genres. The subscription costs $7.99 according to GuitarTuna’s app store listing. The launch follows a $28m funding round for Yousician in April 2021 from investors including Amazon’s Alexa Fund.

More recently, it has launched courses in its main app featuring artists Jason Mraz, Juanes and Metallica, and also spun off a separate Ukulele by Yousician app for learners on that instrument.
