Teachers often ask me how music education company Yousician compares with Moosiko, specifically from their perspective, as the teacher. Both Yousician and Moosiko are great music learning tools, but the product, features, and learning methodologies are slightly different. The following is a brief comparison on how Yousician for teachers differs from Moosiko.
Yousician is designed to help users learn an instrument on their own. They have have a great app you can download in the app store or google play store if you want to learn by yourself.
Moosiko is designed specifically for music education in schools and school music teachers to help them boost student motivation in the classroom and save time with assessment tools and resources.
Since Moosiko focuses on the specific school market, it has a few key advantages for school music teachers:
- Designed to be curriculum agnostic to support all types of school music programs
- Supports all the state standards for K12 music education
- Moosiko is a web-based product so students don’t have to download anything to their school devices. Yousician needs to download an app which isn’t allowed by most district IT teams.
- Loads of teacher features including video recordings that make assessment easier, skills tracking to track progress of each student, engagement tracking
- Learning methodology rooted in deliberate practice. Yousician uses the bouncy-ball method.
- Supports duets and ensemble playing in the classroom
If you want to learn an instrument on your own, Yousician is a good solution.
If you are a public or private teacher looking to use a product in your classroom that boosts student motivation while also giving you more visibility and saving you time, Moosiko is a better option.
Moosiko is being used by over 5,000 students across 55 schools from 3rd grade to 12th. We support guitar, ukulele, and modern band classes. If you want to learn more about how Moosiko can help you and your school music program, feel free to get in touch!
