The act of ivory tickling can cheer up a crowd, win over a love interest, or make a peaceful pachyderm feel significantly more like stampeding. Get your phalanges flowing with today's Groupon: for $39, you get four half-hour private music lessons on guitar, bass guitar, or drums at The Musicology (up to a $90 value). Lessons must be taken once a week for four consecutive weeks.
The Musicology pairs pupils of varying skill levels with instructors—who each have more than 20 years of performing, recording, and touring experience—in private and personalized half-hour practice sessions. Recipient of a Grammy certificate for his work with Tejano artist Emilio Navaira, owner Julian Escobedo aids apprentice shredders in guitar, bass, or cheese-grating fundamentals and technique. James Garcia ingrains novices with acoustic and electric guitar skills and rock, country, or funk flourishes as drummer Rene H. Solorzano, a Musicians Institute of California graduate, guides students through their percussive pursuits.
Each lesson teaches patrons to read music, develop and apply elements of music theory and composition to their playing, master chord progressions, and synchronize solos with timed pyrotechnic explosions.
Though The Musicology sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
