What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | The Hits of Today
Pursue your long-delayed dreams of performing slow-rock ballads before the hair-band-hungry masses, or pass the dream of rock stardom to your nieces, cousins, and step-uncles with today's Groupon to The Real School of Music. Get four 30-minute private lessons with the instrument of your choice (voice, guitar, bass, keyboards, piano, sax, drums, pork-rib-xylophone, etc.), plus full membership access to the Real School facilities and events during the four consecutive weeks of lessons.
Whether you're picking up your first six-string or looking to dust off your childhood zither, the Real School of Music's friendly and knowledgeable instructors will tune your ear to the harmonic juxtaposition of superior instrumentation and teach you about music history, theory, reading, and more. Between your weekly lessons, take advantage of membership privileges by hanging out on the fun and brightly decorated campus, enjoying the free coffee, taking refuge in a tricked out practice room so your roommate doesn't have to listen to you practicing the drum solo from "Bridge Over Troubled Water," or kicking back in the comfy lounge with free WiFi. You can also attend special workshops (past topics include recording, songwriting, marketing your band, and the 10 healthiest foods of 2006), or attend private concerts by visiting artists.
Dust off your old guitar and plan the hits you'll cover at your sister's upcoming wedding, or sign your kids up for mind expanding music lessons as an alternative to other after-school programs. If you don't have your own instrument, The Real School of Music is equipped with drum sets, keyboards. Bring your own guitar.

Keyboardist Greg Hawkes, of legendary Boston-based band The Cars, gave a keyboard clinic at The Real School. The Guggenheim Grotto of Dublin, Ireland also made a performance stop at the school. – Wicked Local
