Zivix, Musopia Partner to Teach More Than 1,000 Songs

jamstik+Zivix, the technology company with a mission to make music accessible to everyone, has announced a new partnership with Musopia, makers of the FourChords Guitar Karaoke App. The collaboration adds full jamstik+ integration into the app, and players learning with the jamstik+ will now be able to learn more than 1000 popular songs in a simple, fun and interactive way.

“Many of our users are first-time guitar players, and after they learn the basics and their first chords with our jamTutor app series, FourChords is the perfect next step for them to start playing their favorite songs,” said Matt Cannon, producer at Zivix LLC. “What’s better motivation to keep learning an instrument than playing your favorite song?”

"New technology provides interesting possibilities to accelerate the learning process, " said Topi Löppönen, chief executive officer, Musopia. "By combining the new ways of learning chords with jamstik+ as well as learning to play entire songs with FourChords, we can offer an incredibly fast track for users to play their favorite music in record time!"
