According to a recent poll of A-list directors, symphony conductors, and Gong Show fans, well-timed sound effects are the most important ingredient in successful scene-setting. Tune up your personal soundtrack with today’s Groupon: for $36, you get four private 30-minute music lessons at Pellegrino Music Center in Canton (a $72 value).
In addition to selling, renting, and servicing an orchestral array of new and preplayed instruments at their showroom, Pellegrino Music Center’s tunesmiths tutor musical apprentices with instrumental instruction taught through the Pellegrino Fine Arts Academy. During 30-minute lessons at the center’s adjacent teaching facility, instructors skilled in instrumental varieties from voice to strings and horns to percussion walk students through one-on-one tutorials, preempting the risk of cluttered classrooms or dueling banjos. First-time students learn music-making basics like where to strum, when to change keys, and how to tell if a saxophone is about to molt, and strings relax and horns exhale under the deft control of experienced pupils in intermediate and advanced lessons tailored to their training level.
Coddling the ears of schools, churches, and private individuals, Pellegrino’s offerings extend beyond instrument sales, rentals, and lessons.Though not included in today’s Groupon, sound gurus design, install, and educate customers on the use of audio systems for existing and new facilities to maximize their sonic potential. Tried and true sheet music stocks songbooks with more than 20,000 pieces from classic to pop, filling musicians with tunes without the tedious task of playing by ear or attempting to fuse with a player piano.
