Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Over priced auto renewal cost and No refund.

Yousician set auto renewal but it's difficult to notice until you receive their charge from credit company. and most likely it's too late because Yousician doesn't accept the refund. All user has to be cautious because they are greedy to get your money.

Too much consumerism

Could be better.

This app is pretty good, it offers tutorial videos, lessons, games, and it is fairly easy to navigate. From what I experienced based off of the free trial, there are some glitches in the app that makes it hard to get a good grasp of how you are doing. The curriculum covered is vast and teaches things in a fun hands on type of way, however the only down side of this app, is that the student doesn't get any personal feedback. This app is well designed and has a lot to offer. It is definitely a step up from youtube tutorials, but for the price it would be more beneficial for the student to get private lessons, or take a class. In lessons, teachers can provide one on one tutoring, as well as form curriculum to the individuals needs. Yousician can be beneficial to many people who don't have time or the means of getting too or scheduling private lessons, but if it is possible I would recommend doing so because it ensures that you will learn proper techniques and get the answers to your questions from someone knowledgable.
