The schools are going back, but it’s not just the kids who are learning: all over the country, evening classes are teaching adults of all ages something new, whether it’s a musical instrument, a new language, business skills or meditation.

If you can’t get to evening classes or prefer to learn in the comfort of your own home, there are plenty of apps out there to help you. So get ready to study, because class is in session...

Don’t lug your new musical instrument to music classes, download this app instead and learn in the lounge! It covers the piano, guitar, bass and ukulele, with thousands of songs to choose from. It listens to you play and gives you instant feedback on your accuracy and timing. There are step-by-step video tutorials for each lesson too, so everyone can benefit, from beginners to maestros alike.
