Thanks to TakeLessons for sponsoring this post. All opinions my own.
Most of you know I’m a piano teacher. Here’s the whole group after the spring recital — they’re quite a nice bunch of kids, if I do say so myself. If you’ve ever considered taking music lessons, be it voice, piano, or another instrument, summer is a great time to get started. Most people have more time to practice in the summer, so you can jump-start your progress.
If you’re local, contact me for piano lessons :). But since I know most of you aren’t, I have a great alternative: TakeLessons.
TakeLessons connects students and families with private music teachers, arts instructors and academic tutors throughout the US. Safety and quality are priorities; every instructor completes an extensive interview, training, and an annual criminal background check. They’ll help you with scheduling, initial coordination and billing, so all you have to worry about is enjoying your lessons!
They can set you up with in-home and in-studio lessons, as well as online lessons (a popular choice 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!
Online lessons are a great way to keep your kids busy over the summer months, while learning a valuable new skill as well!
You can learn more in TakeLessons’ free e-book, “Quick Guide to Getting Started with Music Lessons.”
They’re even offering you more incentives: save 20% off music lesson packages when they use promo code ‘MBSUMMER11’ at checkout! Call 855-318-5565 to speak with a TakeLessons Student Counselor. Offer is good through July 6. Remember the code, because you must have it for the discount.

I often tell my piano students and their parents that I hear many adults say, “I wish I’d learned to play piano.” Never have I heard anyone say, “I studied piano as a child, and I really regret it.”
This could be the summer you or your child begins the wonderful journey into music. I hope you’ll enjoy that journey as much as I have!
