YOUSICIAN IS THE WORLD’S LEADING PLATFORM FOR LEARNING AND PLAYING MUSIC WITH AI TECHNOLOGY THAT LISTENS AND CORRECTS YOU AS YOU PLAY
NEW YORK, July 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Yousician, the world’s leading interactive music platform, has been named Bryn Putnam, founder and former CEO of smart home gym Mirror, on its board of directors. The appointment was made by Yousician co-founder and CEO Chris Thür.
Before joining the Yousician board and founding Mirror, Putnam was a professional ballerina, earning a degree in Russian literature and culture Harvard University. Her entrepreneurial journey began in 2010 with the opening of a NYC Boutique gym chain: The Refine Method. Her idea for The Mirror came from the realization that home fitness should become a concept that packs a punch. Putnam built and led Mirror’s impressive success as Founder and CEO, leading the company to its ultimate success of being acquired by Lululemon in 2020 500 million dollars.
Putnam’s experience in using advanced technology and hardware to help people learn and do what they love from the comfort of their own home will play a crucial role as she works closely with Yousician’s CEO and leadership team at the global growth strategy for the company.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Brynn join our board. Your experience in building and scaling a highly successful advanced tech-at-home platform will be invaluable to us as we continue to grow and scale our business and expand Yousician’s position as the world’s leading platform to bring music to learn and play.”
Thür expects its subscription user base to grow +50% in 2022 due to product innovations, an expanded song licensing catalog, and artist relationships like its partnership with Metallica — giving its 20+ million monthly active users more ways to enjoy innovative learning and gaming experience.
Putnam added: “Although I am not musically gifted, as my childhood piano teacher will attest, I have always loved music. This opportunity is truly music to my ears. I’m really inspired by Chris’ passion for what he and the team are building. “Yousician has built a large profitable business that most companies fail to do and has clearly already built something that people love and find value in. It was really clear that the business had a lot of potential and was bringing some really important changes to the world. I’m happy to be a part of it.”
