Learn how to rhythmically communicate across cultures with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get 10 weeks of group lessons in guitar, percussion, or piano or 10 weeks of Music & Movement classes for ages 6 months to 5 years at GnG Music Instruction in New Albany (a $150 value).
At GnG Music Instruction, accomplished instructors introduce fertile young minds to euphonious basics in one-hour classes once a week. Aspiring rock stars aged 8–11 who already possess Eddie Van Halen's skill at signing autographs can also acquire his shredding ability during guitar classes. Piano lessons build a sense of camaraderie between fellow ivory ticklers, and the booming percussion curriculum creates child-size drummers capable of keeping solid 4/4 beats. These three classes welcome beginners aged 8–11 as well as those 12 and older.
Students who don't own instruments or who smashed them while playing along with Pete Townshend at home may rent them for $25 per month. Meanwhile, tots aged 6 months to 5 years can enroll in parent-child Music & Movement classes. Each session incorporates age-appropriate activities to help participants to develop a basic sense of rhythm, volume, and melody and exposes tender ears to musical masterpieces such as Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and Bach's third witty outgoing voicemail greeting.
