Bolstering musical talent has many benefits––it enhances self-confidence, develops creativity, and allows you to aptly express yourself when trapped in a Disney movie. Convey your feelings in any situation with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two 30-minute piano, guitar, voice, or drum lessons at Studio Percussion (a $60 value).
Studio Percussion, a charitable music school featured on ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, hosts an educated, experienced music staff that teaches individualized lessons in fully equipped studios. At their convenience, students of all ages and abilities can take two piano lessons, which aid in the exploration of other instruments and the picking of musical locks, with training in written notation, chord symbols, and pitch recognition. Rhythm-rousers can study the drums to improve their sticking technique, possibly advancing far enough to perform at UF sporting events. Meanwhile, voice instruction incorporates vocal exercises and improves tone, and guitar lessons help people get closer to their rock-legend heroes more safely than riding a hang-glider into a Metallica concert.
Tobin Wagstaff has traveled quite an interesting path: he founded a nonprofit music school, and, in a turn of events profiled on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, hobnobbed with rock royalty Kiss. All the while, Studio Percussion has been teaching pupils to tickle the ivories, strum the guitar, drum up a storm, and sing their favorite tunes, whether they’re jazz ballads or traditional Klingon folk songs. The instructors—all of whom remain active in the industry—help to whisk their pupils into the limelight during performances at UF sporting events, city music festivals, homecoming parades, and even family jam nights, during which participants take turns reciting their ancestral lineage to music.
