My family has always been musical. My grandfather played clarinet for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, my dad sang baritone in a barbershop quartet, and all of us have taken part in activities such as singing in the church choir. After many years at schools for the arts, and hours of voice, violin, and piano lessons and practice at a music studio, my daughter has now just graduated with a degree in music.

I know that when my daughter wanted to take lessons for the first time, one of the things we had to take into consideration was fitting the lessons into our already busy schedule. With TakeLessons, there are options for in Home, in Studio, and Online lessons – you can choose what works best for you and your family. The Online Lessons would have been such a bonus for us and those times in our lives when we were stretched in too many directions. All you need for these is a computer with an internet connection, a webcam, and a Skype account and you’re all set to have lessons in the comfort of your own home. Lessons available include: vocal music, piano, guitar, violin, dance, acting, drums, and academic tutoring. These can be purchased in package plans as well as month-to-month and a flex plan that allows you to make arrangements as you go. Not sure of what type of lessons you’d like to take? There are no long-term commitments involved – you can switch teachers, schedules, or instrument type at any time. AND it’s not just for your kids – TakeLessons is set up with teachers for all age and experience levels.
