Better Practice Mode
- An option to review the specific sections of a song you made mistakes in and replay those sections instead of the entire song. (Including a non-tempo version where you just have to play the notes in order to establish muscle memory before keeping tempo)
- The option for the song to not speed up in auto play until you get ALL of the notes right.
- an options that stops playback in practice mode until you hit a note or chord correctly.
- The ability to review why you got a specific note or chord wrong - way to early or late, wrong note, etc.
There are other suggestions on this topic, There needs to be a way of combining topics. This would be one of the top topics if combined with the others.
Note-by-Note Practice Mode would be extremely useful for learning standard notation. My only option at the moment is to slow it down to a speed I can read standard notation at, but that's too slow to play at and I get marked wrong for rhythm reasons.
If you have an iPhone you can do a screen recording with sound. I found this helpful as I could go back and watch the video and see exactly where I’d made the mistake (late, early, missed altogether, etc.) Be sure to turn your mic on when you start the screen recording as well, because it won’t turn mic on automatically the first time you start your recording.
This is also a great function to use when you want to send people a- “how to video” rather than typing in step by step instructions.

This feature is common in other piano apps like Flowkey and Simply Piano.
Also a ton of mistaken notes are at the fault of the app. Which requires good internet connection for the app to properly play the song. If the app rushes or lags, the song rushes and lags and punished the player for not having perfect internet.
Yeah, I wish I could press a button or just say "Back" to rewind to the beginning of the current song section"
There needs to be an options that stops playback in practice mode until you hit a note or chord correctly. This would make it much easier to get a feeling for what you are doing wrong and correct these mistakes immediately.
Currently this impossible since you only get feedback that you played something wrong but no chance to fix these mistakes since you are directly meant to play the next note/chord.
If someone is also missing a "stop" feature (until you play the right note), you should vote here:
I hope Yousician helps me become a master piano player...I've been using the free practice an now have an overwhelming urge to give money because I desire to learn faster and play longer...so i give thanks for the help you have been Yousician and hope you don't let me down if I pay...

The non-tempo part was also suggested at https://yousician.uservoice.com/forums/296820-welcome-to-yousician-feedback-forum/suggestions/7925757-step-by-step-in-practice-mode

I definitely agree about the non-tempo version of the song. This is an area where Piano Maestro definitely is better. There is a practice mode where you can set it to pause until each correct note is played, and it will show you which notes you are missing in a chord. I've used PM extensively, and have compared learning comparable songs with the two apps. I learn songs significantly faster because of the ability to immediately correct my error with the 'hold' option turned on, in Piano Maestro, without having to loop through the song again, or pause and scroll back as are the only options in Yousician. I haven't paid for a subscription to Yousician yet, and I can honestly say this missing feature might be a deal breaker for me.

Practice mode/suggestions should be available on the “Home”, “Learn” or “Lesson” options by itself. Since you are tracking notes and chord hits as well as timing this could make suggestions/lessons based on weak areas.
Right on re: ability to review why you got a specific note or chord wrong.
I would also like to have a mode where I can see the whole song without having to play it. I am a good sight reader, but I also like to be able to look at the structure of the whole piece in advance so I can think about what will happen next. In real sheet music, you can do that.
In practice mode, sometimes the score shows up after the piece has started playing again, obscuring the first few notes. Surely this is a simple fix?
Jump 10% if you got 100% of the notes.
+1 AND an option to remove "yousician can't hear you" - the first time I open a song I want to hear it, and this red bar pops up and steals attention, as well as covers some of the UI

For 1) You can already do this- Simply move the bars on the left and right of the scale to lock in the section you want to work on.
The others I can dig on.
The non-tempo version is the most important part imho
I'd like to have the practice mode wait for me to hit the right note, early in song learning we should be able to be in a "fuck the tempo" mode
