Today's side deal treats your inner musical munchkin to four group piano lessons with DFW Piano Lessons, featuring Simply Music, for $49 (a $112 value). You'll also get an instructional DVD and a Simply Music method book ($15 value). The classes must be used within one month and are for students over the age of six.
While the phrase "piano lesson" dredges up images of blue-haired old ladies with too many cats forcing the repetition of tedious scales in exchange for dusty toffees, DFW Piano Lessons offers a far more dynamic form of musical tutelage. With instructors from both Anyone Can Play! and Childlight Music studios joining forces to create this Groupon-exclusive union, you'll get double the knowledge and double the accessibility—you can redeem the deal at the Allen or Frisco locations.
The lessons are taught using the Simply Music method, a revolutionary Australian teaching style that uses a more natural approach to music that focuses on the sheer fun of learning to play it. Students skip the scales and leap right into contemporary, classical, gospel, blues, and more during their very first lesson. By teaching you how to play songs first, it makes it easier to teach how to read and write music later. All lessons are taught in groups, and depending on the size (say, two to five students), lessons can be anywhere from half an hour to 50 minutes long. After four classes, the average student will be able to play three songs, with most able to play more.
Studios are not open on Saturday and Sunday.

- My boys are 8 and 10. They've had just 12 lessons with Simply Music and already know 12 songs. Not just 'Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star' and 'Mary Had A Little Lamb,' but real music. The boys are already playing the blues. They think they're hot stuff. – Rebecca Neis, parent
