This method of teaching was pioneered by Juan Valencia a.k.a Mister V, a music educator from Toronto, Canada. Six years ago, he discovered Yousician when he was looking for new ways and methods to engage with his students in the classroom. After seeing the excitement of his students and enjoying their newfound focus when using Yousician, Mister V realized the potential of this technological tool for transforming traditional music education in the classroom.
He founded Guitar Starz Club, a Toronto-based non-profit music school that operates in collaboration with state schools. Owing to its innovative approach to music education, this music school became very popular, very quickly. Over the last five years, Guitar Starz Club has made a significant impact on the lives of over one thousand children in the Greater Toronto Area. After the great success of the program in Canada, Mister V and Yousician decided to join forces to create this initiative that will allow them both to achieve their missions: to promote the importance of music education and contribute to the formation of our future generations.
