The sounds of summer are manifold, from the E-sharp symphonies of dive-bombing seagulls to conch-shell covers of Bruce Springsteen's Greatest Hits. Contribute your own solstice sounds with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a 30-minute private guitar, drums, piano, or vocal lesson at Robinson Music (a $27 value). Bring your own instrument or borrow one free of charge for your lesson.
During instrument or voice lessons, Robinson's experienced instructors school both novice and veteran musicians in the art of musical virtuosity. Students of all ages can use the lesson to study up on any preferred musical style, including rock, classical, jazz, blues, or bubblegum bebop. Whether helping pupils to perfect basic etudes or to deconstruct complicated Jimmy Page solos, Robinson's seasoned pros illuminate valuable practice tips and techniques. The center, located a quarter mile from Route 9, houses 15 different studios and more than 500 enrolled students.
Robinson Music Inc.
It's not unusual to walk into Robinson Music Inc. and hear the deep growl of a bassoon or the sweet notes of a violin. Fueled by a common love of chords, this music store invests itself in its customers with lessons in private studios and instrument rentals and repairs. Students can learn under the tutelage of professional musicians from the New England Conservatory of Music or the Berklee College of Music, who teach piano, guitar, and voice techniques or help subjects prepare for auditions in the shower showtunes industry. The music-minded staff can also replace strings, re-hair bows, re-tune pianos, and restore woodwinds.
