Like dropping passive-aggressive hints that a roommate should do the dishes, composing a piece of music requires the strategic placement of notes. Send a powerful musical message with today's Groupon: for $54, you get four one-hour group guitar lessons at KLM Stage & Musician Services Ltd. (a $160 value, including $20 registration fee), available Monday–Thursday at 6 p.m. or 7 p.m.
A privately owned music school, KLM assembles a team of qualified instructors to teach strumming and plucking peculiarities to groups of emerging maestros of all ages and ability levels. Axe masters who are trained in everything from folk to metal lead guitar lessons where they instruct strummers on how to answer fan mail while instilling fret fundamentals on acoustic, electric, or bass guitars. Each class is limited to 10 students to ensure attention for each troubadour, and lessons take place in KLM's new teaching facilities outfitted with air conditioning, observation windows, and amplifiers. Fret trawlers smitten with strumming can go on to jam at KLM's rock school to perfect the art of setting strings on fire with their speedy guitar licks.
