New Music Startup Revolutionizes Online Guitar Lessons with Interactive Webapp

Research inspired method to learn to play guitar with interactive web software and a curriculum of popular songs developed at Carnegie Mellon is now accepting private beta users.


Pittsburgh, PA, USA – Tunessence Inc., a tech-accelerator funded startup, is changing the way guitarists learn and hone their craft. Spun out of Carnegie Mellon University’s Computer Engineering and Computer Science departments, their research-inspired software aims to capture the essence of an in-person lesson and make personalized instruction available online.
The virtual guitar teacher listens through standard computer microphones in order to provide feedback to students. A curriculum of online guitar lessons developed in part by faculty at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Music aims to teach the fundamentals of guitar in the context of learning to play songs, including many standards in Jazz, Blues, and Rock.
“Music is such an enriching part of life, and so many people try and fail to teach themselves.” says Matt Bauch, a founder of Tunessence. “Staying engaged is so important to the learning process, so every lesson we offer keeps that in mind, and maximizes the amount of time that the student actually gets to play guitar.”
Tunessence is testing in private beta. Anyone can currently sign up for free access on their waitlist at
