This is a post on behalf of LessonFace (mama’s got bills to pay) but the hilarity and awesomely honest opinions are all my own
Bayla has been begging to learn how to play guitar for about three years now. Last year for Christmas, we finally got her a guitar but finances and time didn’t allows us to get her some guitar lessons to go with it. That’s why when Lessonface asked me to review their easy online guitar lessons, I was so excited to see if it would work for our family.
When I grew up, music was readily a part of my life. It was something we’ve always wanted to pass down to our kids as well. Piano and clarinet were my
weapons instruments of choice. Piano came easier to me than clarinet, but it seems like just yesterday my parents were begging me to learn a new song because they would hear me practicing the same one OVER and OVER again. (Hey, practice makes perfect, right?!)
They cool thing about learning how to play guitar is the sound doesn’t carry as far, plus Bayla plans on being the next Taylor Swift. Of course, this means she can afford to put me in the totally luxurious old folks home once she makes it big. (Sounds like a win/win to me)
She started lessons two weeks ago, and I was kind of skeptical how it would be possible to have virtual music lessons. We didn’t even know you could DO that before speaking with Lessonface. Lessonface is a cool virutal “face to face” lesson and teaching system that connects teachers and students all over the country. Bayla’s teacher October actually lives in Los Angeles, and teaches Bayla guitar once a week over the computer. It’s kind of like Skype, but with a music twist.
It was really easy to download the software needed to run the lessons. The only hiccup we have run into is that it’s hard for her teacher to hear the guitar when Bayla plays, so we are going to have to invest in an external microphone to make that a little bit easier on the both of them. Other than that, the platform has been great. The video conference streams really well, with very little lag, and the sound quality is great too. Plus, they stand behind their products. If you aren’t satisfied with your lessons there is a 100% moneyback guarantee.
Our favorite part about the whole Lessonface experience is how amazing her teacher is. Bayla has next to no experience with music, and October is super patient in explaining music theory as well as the notes and proper positions to play guitar. They have a really fun time, and Bayla looks forward to playing with her each week.
