What You'll Get
Music is traditionally learned deep in the bayou near a crossroads at midnight, where baby turtles exchange souls for fiddle skills on a twice-weekly basis. Today's deal presents an alternative instructional method. For $49, you get four 30-minute private lessons at The Music Factory, a $129 value. Choose from a variety of instruments for the learning, including guitar, piano, trumpet, drums, ukulele, and the instrument inside your throat-box. Your Groupon is only valid for instrument- and voice-based instruction. See the sidebar for a complete list of lessons.
Professional music instruction will teach you how a proper flute trill can summon magical imps to do your bidding, and if you're lucky enough to discover the mythic H-note, the magical imps will clean your inner ear canal for optimum resonance. Once a week for four weeks, you'll meet with one of the experienced instructors at The Music Factory, a school that prides itself on its roster of experienced, professional musicians. The school itself both contains and resembles a recording studio, with vibrant red walls and minimal furnishings that allow the instruments to take center stage. Teachers and advisors include members and past members of bands such as the Carpenters, the Motels, Something Corporate, Face to Face, and Rufio.
The instructors will tailor lessons to suit all levels of experience, from string-plucking masters who want to brush up on technicalities to total novices whose fingers get stuck underneath the guitar strings. Students can learn intricate Bach arrangements or soothing classical sonatas for piano, or learn to back up New Wave groups on keyboard. Whatever the taste or motivation, a niche exists in The Music Factory, whose rhythmically spinning cogs and whistling smokestacks can be heard producing song from many a mile away.
Today's deal is for new Music Factory students only.
