What You'll Get
Music of the heart can only be expressed with firm knowledge of music theory, diligent practice, and several medical degrees necessary to pluck at one's own heartstrings. Sing sweetly in the key of aorta minor with today's Groupon to Promethean Studios, located in Plano and Richardson. Choose from the following options:
- For $50, you get enrollment in a one-week, five-hour music camp (a $115 value).
- For $59, you get four 30-minute private music lessons (a $120 value). The private lesson registration fee is waived for Groupon users.
- For $99, you get enrollment in a one-week, ten-hour jazz camp (a $225 value).
Taught by experienced career musicians, Promethean Studios' private lessons cater to all skill levels, styles, and ages in a variety of instruments, including vocal performance, guitar, saxophone, ukulele, songwriting and composition, and more. All lessons commit a quarter of the time to music theory, a quarter to instrument technique, and half to tackling specific pieces selected by the student. Tailoring lessons to suit the needs of every student, Promethean's instructors can help to accomplish any musical goal, from mentoring experienced oboists tackling their own original concertos to teaching total beginners to distinguish a saxophone's ligature from a horse's muzzle.
Beginning players can opt for a one-week summer music camp, which celebrates the loose fun of playing and performing while adhering to technique and music-theory fundamentals. With sessions ranging from bass to percussion, individual camps culminate in a concert for friends, family, and students from the neighboring audience camp. Though open to all ages, camps are designed for beginning and intermediate-level players. Check the bottom section of this page for a list of available camps and dates.
Also concluding in a concert performance, jazz camp thrusts players of all ages and instruments into a summer week of sweltering rhythms. Taught by experienced jazzman and Promethean Studios founder Mark Black, the camp splits its time between developing a jazz combo and mastering jazz skills, such as improvisation, scales, how to solo while technically asleep, and chord progressions. Although all ages and abilities are welcome, jazz camp requires a brief placement audition before the camp begins.
Though Promethean Studios sometimes features discounted prices online, the registration fee required to take advantage of those discounts ensures that this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
