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: for $30, you get two private summer music lessons (a $58 value) including registration fees (a $49 value) at Forte Music School (a $107 total value). Hurry to redeem your Groupon, as it must be activated by August 15, and classes must be completed by September 3. Piano and drum students may use the school's instruments, but guitar, bass, and violin students must supply their own. Click here for a total list of available instruments.
Forte Music School fosters up-and-coming musicians ages 5–adult with its experienced staff, technologically savvy facility, and modern take on musical instruction. In each 30-minute private lesson, neo-noisemakers conquer not only the pillars of traditional music education––including sight reading and music theory––but also their applications to the contemporary worlds of jazz, country, and autotuned college lectures. After mastering the basics of playing chords or improvisation at the hands of their supportive and motivating instructor, students also get to critique their own performances thanks to Forte's in-house recording equipment, which––much like a polygraph-tested Liza Minelli––provides a truthful and unbiased account of both positive and negative musical moments.
