I am a firm believer that music IS the universal language. I, however, do not possess any musical ability. Except in my own head. I know I can sure put on a great concert while driving in my car.
I want my son to have every opportunity to appreciate music. I want him to learn how to read music and to play at least one instrument. He is ten now, and has had some guitar lessons (from his dad), and knows the keys on the piano (he can play Mary Had a Little Lamb and Jingle Bells). He hasn’t had any formal lessons.
I think it’s something he could benefit greatly from… we can’t decide between piano or violin.
I recently heard about TakeLessons, an online site that connects families with private music teachers, art instructors, and academic tutors all across the U.S. I put in what type of lessons I was looking for and my zip code and it brought up instructors in my area that met my needs. In my case, I was looking for a piano teacher. Two came up in my immediate area.
What I really like is that they not only provide in home and studio lessons, but online lessons, as well. This would fit our busy schedules perfectly. We meet all the criteria – a computer with a webcam, a skype account, and good internet connection.
