What You'll Get
At the age at which most children learn to speak, Mozart had already composed four symphonies, restored 11 classic cars, and built a robot to play against in squash. Catch up to Mozart's accomplishments with today's Groupon to Axis Music Academy, redeemable at either of the Canton or Southfield locations. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get two 30-minute private music lessons (up to an $80 value).
- For $15, you get one recording class that uses a combination of Logic, Pro Tools, and Final Cut Pro programs (an $80 value).
The instrumental instructors at Axis Music Academy fill noggins to the brim with the know-how to navigate sound utensils such as guitar, bass guitar, drums, piano, or voice in a plethora of musical styles. Each 30-minute lesson covers basic music theory and musical vocabulary in addition to safety tips for stage-diving and guitar immolation. Recording classes plumb the depths of digital editing and impart the basics of digital recording—through a combination of Logic, Pro Tools, and Final Cut Pro programs—allowing users to grasp entire orchestras, a privilege typically reserved for gigantic symphony conductors.
Students can bring their own instruments or make arrangements to rent one at an additional fee ($15/week) from Axis Music Academy.
Though Axis Music Academy sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Axis Music Academy
When John Antone founded Axis Music Academy and started developing his proprietary teaching method, the academy was a cramped four-studio Southfield office where he gave guitar lessons. Sixteen years later, Axis has blossomed into a quartet of spacious, well-lit facilities that have one specialty in common: turn individual musicians into bands. Supplied with 12 private studios and all necessary instruments and gear, students get to set their own goals and chart their own course to learning, composing, and recording music. Whether that journey starts with them working through their favorite song on the guitar or stubbornly trying to play the tuba with their ear, the teaching staff helps them reach their goals using the full benefit of their expertise. Budding virtuosos can then combine their strengths during a slate of rock bands, glee clubs, and other group activities.
Axis Music Academy is also currently Michigan’s only Apple-authorized training center, which saves prospective producers a trip out of state if they want to get certified and tested in industry-standard recording software such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro, Ableton, Final Cut, and Garage Band —all taught using a brand-new suite of computer stations and the industry-insider techniques of Charlie Grover, the former drummer of gold-certified rock band Sponge.
Lessons rarely stay confined to the classroom, since Axis lines up opportunities for students to show off what they've learned onstage at local venues, sports games, and even on air during the morning news. It also stays active in the Detroit-area community by participating in Axis Music Academy 501(C)3 and other programs.
