Teaching with Voice: Learn and Workout Tabs, plus Gameplay Mode
Yousician for Voice is an excellent tool for you to use with your students, not only during these times of remote teaching but also in the classroom. Most students don’t have access to an instrument at home, but they all can expand their musicality with the help of Yousician and your guidance.
In this video, you will gain knowledge about the Learn and Workout tabs, and you will see a quick overview of the Game Play Mode.
The built-in piano and other alternatives
Students that have no instruments at home are using the built-in piano in Yousician, but they are finding it very limited. There is an alternative that they can use if they have access to multiple devices. With the use of virtual piano apps, they can continue to solve several exercises at home during this remote teaching period. Having a piano or electric keyboard is a much better option, but this could be a good alternative to keep your students busy at home while still learning musical concepts with Yousician.
This video will show you how.
