Learning to play music with some online help. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. MusicSchoolOnline is the name of a site designed to bring music lessons within reach of more families. Pro instructors give lessons in a variety of instruments…piano, guitar, and drums….as well as voice….with monthly memberships staring at ten dollars. Can online lessons really take the place of in person teaching? MusicSchoolOnline founder Ken Lewis…
“Well I actually think you can get a lot more out of it. And the reason is you can set your own pace, you can learn at your own speed and you can, most importantly, learn the things that you want. Typically on the site, we tend to teach a song coupled with a skill.”
There are hundreds of video tutorials on the site with hundreds more in the works. MusicSchoolOnline offers a fourteen day free trial. While there may not be personal feedback as you go along, it can be worthwhile and save you money. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
