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 résumé with today's Groupon: for $50, you get four 30-minute or two one-hour private guitar lessons in a month at Give To Live Guitar Studios, with locations in Raleigh and Wake Forest (a $100 value).
Give To Live Guitar Studios caters to aspiring guitarists of any age or genre inclination, whether they wish to shred like Jimmy Page or conjure transcendental harmony like Johann Sebastian Bach. Owner and teacher Bob Meyer honed chops 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. Each student's goals and abilities dictate the flow of lessons, which can inculcate basic chord patterns alongside amped-up rock-outs and an array of scales that lay the foundation for scintillating solos. Incidentally, shred sessions on any musical instrument typically imbue discipline, coordination, and confidence beyond simple strings and frets.
Students can showcase freshly inspired licks in live performances, each of which promotes awareness of local charities. Beginning strummers are advised to opt for the four-session model, whereas more advanced students may be better equipped for two longer sessions.
