What You'll Get
If music be the food of love, relationships subsisting on flowers and chocolates would be better fed by the dulcet tones of a kazoo. Cater to all musical tastes with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get one month (four half-hour lessons) of private music instruction at Raleigh Music Academy (a $120 value) on Hargrove Road. This Groupon is valid for acoustic and electric guitar, bass, drums, banjo, fiddle, and mandolin lessons.
Students at Raleigh Music Academy learn string-plucking basics and difficult drum fills from a host of practiced musicians, then awe crowds at monthly student shows held on a professional sound stage. Teachers tailor their half-hour weekly lessons (four total) to suit students' improvisational temperament or savant-like ability to speak in paradiddles, training songsmiths to sight-read and solo with confidence. In the monthly student show, freshly minted musicians grouped by skill level learn the joys of live performance, thrilling friends with artful noodling on a stage equipped with professional audio and lights.
Raleigh Music Academy caters to guitar initiates aspiring to rock deification as well as experienced jazzmen looking to augment their knowledge of augmented diminished chord inversions. Children as young as 6 can benefit from one-on-one attention from a practiced banjo strummer or mandolin smasher. Students can arrange evening and afternoon lessons Monday through Saturday, and may continue taking lessons at the regular monthly rate of $95. The one-time registration fee of $25 and one-time obligation to paint the owner's garage are waived for Groupon buyers.
