Founded in 2011, Musopia is an iOS developer company, the founders of which include serial entrepreneurs, a lawyer who specializes in music and a former Nokia executive who was responsible for the mobile phone manufacturer’s music service. Almost everybody in the staff plays guitar, of course.
“Our mission is to unite people with music,” says the CEO and founder Topi Löppönen. ” Our apps open things up and make learning music accessible to more people. The ubiquity of mobile devices combine with innovative interface design and programming prowess to fundamentally change the way human beings learn music. Now they can learn to play their favorite songs in a faster, more entertaining way.”
Musopia created FourChords Guitar Karaoke app as a fast track for beginner guitarists to learn to play real songs . “ Learning an instrument can be so difficult and time-consuming for some people that it gets frustrating,” says Musopia co-founder Paula Lehto. “A significant number of people give up, and we want to prevent that by showing them a faster way to get to the fun part. We´ve received a lot of feedback from teachers in the U.S. and other countries saying that the app is really helping their students to stay motivated and offering new possibilities to engage bigger groups to play together. GAMA is doing an incredible job in coaching the teachers and we are super proud to be in this group.”
This is how FourChords Guitar Karaoke differs from traditional sheet music or songbooks:
– Tabs or sheet music is not needed. The chords are marked by colorful icons.
– The songs are re-arranged into easy versions that can be played with a few open chords.
– The songs are presented in a karaoke-style display which tells you what chord to play as the song is progressing
– The acoustic backing track helps the guitarist with guitar sounds, rhythm and melody of the song (all can be switched off)
– The original tempo of the song can be adjusted faster or slower
– The display can be paused if the player wants to study a difficult part of the song in peace
– The lyrics are included in the same display
Musopia shares the mission of GAMA as they wish the world to be full of guitar players. They are ready to do their best in supporting teachers and getting beginner guitarists engaged with their new instrument.
