iVideosongs is a startup focused on enhancing the music learning experience by providing complete music tutorials to users in the form of videos. Hoping to fill the gap between expensive private lessons and the fragments of information available on the internet, the tutorials on iVideosongs are affordable, ranging around $5 apiece per download.
The site launched its Beta version in January 2008.
iVideosongs has a growing library of popular song titles in various genres, ranging from indie to country to R&B.
Each song title is broken into segments, so users can learn the intro, verse, chorus, bridge and outro. Each also includes an accurate performance, so users can check their progress against the complete track.
In addition to teaching song titles, iVideosongs also contains tutorials about basic guitar skills, such as “Introduction to Fingerpicking”.
The tutorials and lessons are taught by experienced guitar instructors with extensive backgrounds in the performing arts.
