The harmonic realm is only accessible via boat, paddleboat, glass-bottom boat, and music. Today's Groupon instills the melodic values of pitch and tempo in landlocked music-making aspirants. For $37, new students get three private half-hour lessons (a $75 value) with Swift School of Music in St. Paul's Saint Anthony Park. Sonic artists of all ages and experiences can learn the ropes of singing, guitar, bass guitar, drums, or piano with experienced teachers.

Swift School of Music's private lessons pair each musician with one of the school's friendly and professional instructors, each of whom rocks a degree in music or education and caters lessons to each student's preferred genre of music. Swift School's teachers are experts at motivating and encouraging pupils to remain persistent and learn their initial ropes during the awkward early stages of making an acquaintance with a new instrument. As fretting, strumming, vocalizing, crescendoing, and rat-tat-tatting work their way into a musician's physical vocabulary, musical familiarity will quickly develop into a musical passion, but stop short of a musical bloodlust.
Practice and determination are the salt and paprika of proper instrument skills and Hungarian cooking, both of which will impress a long list of in-laws, cute co-eds, and winsome mail carriers. Today's Groupon lets you turn rusty instruments from hat racks to music boxes by learning a form of wordless communication that doesn't involve graffiti stick figures and stink lines. Engage in legal music piracy by learning to play all your favorite songs, or learn to compose new ones with a little help from Swift School of Music.
All lessons must be completed within six weeks of the first lesson. Students must bring their own guitar and bass guitar; all other instruments are provided.
- I was impressed with my teacher from my first visit. They don't advertise woodwind instruction, but my teacher is certified to teach all band instruments up to 8th grade (I play clarinet). I have found her observations and suggestions to be right on. And the atmosphere is so friendly, that I felt right at ease, despite being an older student. If you've ever wanted to learn to play an instrument, this is the place to go! ¬– Edrie, Google Maps
- I've been playing guitar for about six years now, and during the past year at Swift School of Music, I've learned more than I have the other five years combined. Dave Swift, along with all the other instructors I've met are easy to talk to and all around great people. The school has a great atmosphere to it, and I am always excited to go back every week. – Devinsmith92, Kudzu
