Music Is What Feelings Sound Like – TakeLessons and Express Yourself

Musicfeelings (2)


I always wish that I had been more confident in my musical abilities.  When I was young I always wanted to be in a band.  Not a high school band, but a Rock-N-Roll band.  I loved singing.  I loved playing keyboards.  I took drum lessons in 1st grade (although I never learned how to play drums).  I took violin lessons in 2nd grade (my parents thought it was much quieter).  Music has always been something I enjoy.  If you don’t believe me stop over on a Saturday night and join our family for a fun 3 hour Rockband session.  I’m the lead singer and keyboardist.  My husband and youngest son alternate between playing drums and my oldest son is a guitar legend.

My youngest son has always wanted to play the drums and he can actually play them on Rockband using the “professional” setting.  It’s amazing watching him.  Up until now I only considered lessons for him but now that I found TakeLessons.com I’m seriously considering letting him get in-home lessons.  Their spring sale of 20% off using promo code SPRINGMUSIC is a great reason to try their services.

What is TakeLessons.com

Worried about time?

We provide In Home and In Studio lessons, as well as Online Lessons, which are a popular option for busy families – all you need is a computer with a webcam, a Skype account, and a good Internet connection. Cut down on commute times by taking lessons in the comfort of your own home!

With over 30 lesson types available, including guitar, singing, piano, drums, violin, dance, acting, and academic tutoring TakeLessons.com is a one-stop shop for busy moms.  The fact that lessons can be done over Skype is also amazing.  However, what had me sold was their 100% Money Back Guarantee. If you’re not satisfied with your first lesson, they will find you another teacher, or refund all of your original purchase price, including the first lesson.  Since our life is pretty hectic from one minute to the next we needed to find someone who would not require a long-term commitments and we can switch our schedule, teacher or instrument type at any time.
