Tooting your own horn is considered rude, which is why trumpeters usually buy their instruments using stolen credit cards. Face the music with today's Groupon: for $40, you get four 30-minute music lessons, including the registration fee, at Mozingo Music (up to a $120 value). This deal is valid at locations in Ellisville and O'Fallon.
Mozingo Music has been cultivating melody mastery among students of all skill levels for more than 35 years. Private instruction from an experienced note master, like private instruction from a baseball great, helps students develop fleet fingers and improve their pitch recognition. Students can choose from a cornucopia of instruments, including guitar, piano, voice, drums, and most band and orchestral instruments. Bring an instrument from home, or rent one from Mozingo's ample new and used instrument selection. Keep an eye out for frequent events, such as the Free Bluegrass Jam, Blues & Rock Jam, and Jam Jam, during which students make fruit preserves to the tune of Revolutionary War–era flute music.
Originally operating out of a barbershop, Don and Lenella Mozingo have grown their business to reach students of diverse musical backgrounds. The store stays actively involved in the community, offering free clinics to area schools and hosting a charity golf tournament to benefit local organizations.
