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 $40, you get four 30-minute music lessons on guitar, bass guitar, or drums at The Musicology (a $90 value). Lessons are held once a week for four consecutive weeks.
The working musicians at The Musicology all bring more than 20 years of performing, recording, and touring experience to provide one-on-one instruction in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere. Owner and 25-year professional bass-guitar player Julian Escobedo teaches bass and guitar lessons, on top of playing locally with Finding Friday and touring with Grammy award–winning Tejano artist Emilio Navaira, and uses his harmonic prowess to school students aged seven to 77 in chord progressions, scales, modes, and metronome-based self-hypnosis. International-performance veteran James Garcia teaches acoustic- and electric-guitar genres ranging from rock and country to pop, funk, and blues, and Rene H. Solorzano rhythm-ifies budding percussionists and serves as studio engineer for The Musicology Recording Studio. 30-minute private lessons will help new musicians master everything from holding their instruments to reading music, and The Musicology supports an environment of natural self-expression to ensure students retain music as a lifelong companion, unlike carnival-won goldfish.
