When a good band breaks up, doves cry, silver mountains crumble, and record players stage bloody Sunday protests. Reunite the band with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one month of music lessons and guitar rental at Blue Raven Music Studios (up to an $85 value).
Blue Raven Music Studio's colorful, brightly painted studio houses experienced instructors who teach prospective maestros of all skill levels how to play a wide variety of instruments. Tickle the ivories during piano instruction, ruffle a moustache with harmonica lessons, or ripple passersby with good guitar vibrations. Conducted in an intimate, one-on-one setting, the 30-minute lessons start with the basics of music making, including note reading, technique, and music theory. As students evolve into well-oiled melody-manufacturing machines, lessons can become more personalized, allowing students to select particular songs or genres they want to master.
Flexible scheduling in the daytime, evenings, and weekends allows families of partridges to arrange simultaneous lessons for their drummer, mandolin player, saxophonist, and spoons player. This Groupon is good for ages 9 and up, but Blue Raven Music Studios also holds special 20-minute sessions for future axe-wielders ages 5–8.
