Playing a musical instrument is a skill that will serve you throughout your entire life, like safe cracking, horse punching, and toddler juggling. Add to your resumé with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a one-hour drum, piano, or guitar lesson at Dustin Adams Music Studio (a $40 value).
Dustin Adams merges formal knowledge and on-stage experience into lessons that rock and roll students into a variety of instrument lessons. After a free consultation, lessons will be designed to harmonize with each student’s experience and abilities, allowing both novices and veterans to progress in rhythm with their own internal metronomes. Piano, drum, and guitar lessons emphasize fluency in the language of music, with students learning to read, write, and translate tunes into Esperanto. Other aspects vary by instrument: percussionists practice drumstick dexterity to tap out beats and skewer sushi; pianists perform scale and chord exercises and study the art of improvisation; and guitarists make strings croon with picking and finger-style techniques. Lessons take place in Adams’ home studio or can be conducted over the Internet via web cam.
