What You'll Get
In order to play most instruments, stuffed bears must graft dexterous human fingers atop their furry nubbins. Make glorious music that makes inanimate objects jealous with today's deal: for $40, you get four half-hour private music lessons from the accomplished staff at Ward-Brodt Music on Beltline Highway. Instrument leasing is available for those who don't own an instrument, but the value of this Groupon cannot be applied toward rental.
Ward-Brodt Music is Madison's online and real-life oasis of music supplies and instruction. Today's Groupon gives you four half-hour private lessons on the instrument of your choice; one-man bands are encouraged to choose their favorite instrument, including the likes of guitar, piano, and various woodwinds, and remove it from the pulley connected to their shin. Potential percussionists can study with mallet-claws for a jaunt through polyrhythms and the impossible physics of sideways-spinning drumkits, while new piano students interested in moving beyond blindfolded renditions of "Heart-N-Soul" will find ample opportunity to progress. Ward-Brodt's professional, extensive staff of over 30 music educators reads like a dream team of southern Wisconsin's performers and teachers.
Ward-Brodt Music's specialties and interests span a multitude of genres and clefs. The staff's winning balance of prestigiously accredited teachers and regularly gigging local musicians covers students looking to ramp up technique as well as those interested in discussing the finer points of 12-tone theory and how it eventually led to the Milli Vanilli scandal. Use today's Groupon to for chops-sharpening private sessions, or gift it to an unsuspecting future flugelhorn wizard.
