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 $50, you get four piano or guitar lessons at Milestones Music, located in Fair Oaks.
Boasting 14 years of teaching experience, Milestones's instructional maestro Jamin Coller brings a patient hand and an even patienter ear to the classroom, making lessons enjoyable and understandable for students of all experience levels. Lessons are conducted in a spacious, comfortable environment in which aspiring musical artists can progress at their own paces, play along with the instructor, and even make recordings to share with their friends, family, and a lonely pianola. Coller can also advise beginners buying their first instrument, guiding them toward affordable, quality string-strummers or ivories that have only been gently tickled. Each of the four lessons typically lasts around 30 minutes, and students who arrive early can busy themselves by playing ping pong in the game room, practicing pieces from past lessons, or daydreaming about the glockenspiel's hip-hop origins.
