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 resumé with today's Groupon: for $60, you get four music lessons at Studio Music Group in Goleta (a $120 value). Lessons are available for the drums, guitar, bass, piano, trombone, and voice.
Music veteran Steve Stockmal customizes his private lessons to make musical instruments accessible for students of all skill levels. A graduate of the Percussion Institute of Technology and an alumnus of numerous bands, Steve sprinkles note-netting tutorials with wisdom on music theory, tab reading, and techniques for calming a hysterical piano player. The 30-minute one-on-one lessons are held once a week over four consecutive weeks and tailored to each student's needs, allowing the flexibility to build on skills from week to week, learn to play a favorite song, or target specific areas for improvement. Students who don't have an instrument or who want to try a different instrument each class can borrow sound-generating devices from the studio’s collection of guitars, horns, drums, and alto dinner spoons.
