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 resume with today's Groupon: for $50, you get four half-hour or two one-hour private guitar lessons at Give To Live Guitar Studios (a $100 value), with locations in Raleigh and Wake Forest.
Give To Live specializes in stringed instruction for any type of style, catering to aspiring guitarists whether they want to shred like Jimmy Page or make harmonic beauty like Johann Sebastian Bach. Give To Live is owned and operated by teacher Bob Meyer, who has studied under Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane and worked on the tours of Metallica, The Rolling Stones, Van Halen, and Jimmy Carter’s Glam-Metal Showcase. Lessons are personalized to each student's goals and abilities, inculcating basic chord patterns alongside amped-up rock-outs and an array of scales that will lay the foundation for scintillating solos; additionally, those who take guitar lessons typically develop discipline, coordination, and confidence beyond strings and frets.
All students are welcome to take part in live performances, each of which actively supports awareness of local charities. Beginners are advised to opt for the four-session model, while more advanced students may be better equipped for two longer sessions.
