If you've never played an instrument, you're missing out on one of the most fulfilling human experiences: smashing your instrument. Actually, the most fulfilling experience is when you play something so beautiful that you lose yourself in the music. For you seasoned musicians, a brush up lesson at Page Music could improve your skills. Why, even Mozart took piano lessons late in his life to learn new techniques. Today's Groupon also makes a great gift for a talentless friend or relative. All ages are welcome at Page.

Husband-and-wife team Felix and Sara inadvertently started a love affair with photography when they began taking pictures of their children every day to share with family members scattered across the globe. Over the years, this personal project has amassed more than 12,000 images and served as the impetus to found Felix Rust Photographers.

Felix and Sara describe their style as "quirky and un-posed," an aesthetic they create using unusual vantage points and washed-out colors. Flipping through the couple’s portfolio, viewers are treated to heartwarming portraits, including a kissing couple captured in the reflective puddles of a red-brick street. Additionally, Felix and Sara collaborate on boudoir images; Felix snaps shots while Sara draws on her experience as a former model to suggest poses, backgrounds, and clothing options.

The faculty members at the School of Rock believe that immersion is the best way to learn any new skill, which is why they don’t just teach students how to traverse the notes and rhythms of guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocals in isolation. In addition to teaching students the technical skills during one-on-one lessons, the professional music instructors push them to fuse their individual parts into songs during full band practices with fellow beginner rockers. This combination of one-on-one attention and cooperative group learning helps kids of all skill levels hone their craft while overcoming common pitfalls such as stage fright or playing off-tempo. As kids learn to shred riffs, pound out drum solos, and summon Ronnie James Dio by hitting the correct vibrato atop a silver mountain, the classes build their confidence and kick-start a lifetime of loving rock 'n' roll.
