Ever heard of MacPhail Center for Music? If you live in Minnesota you probably have…we have family there and they seem to be VERY well known there – well known for EXCEPTIONAL instrument teaching. Since I don’t live in Minnesota, I personally had never heard of them. But when the chance for online guitar lessons came up for review, we were really excited!
My oldest son has been taking guitar lessons for about the last nine months. We’ve been going to a graduated homeschooler who is in a church band. We’ve been really happy with her work but were interested to see something different…
WE WERE IMPRESSED!
For our review purposes, we were given four 30-minute online lessons. We did Intermediate Guitar Lessons with a gentleman named Randy.
We had never Skyped before but we got it set up very easily. [It is a free service as long as you are doing Skype to Skype.] J worked very easily with it throughout the lessons.
How wonderful it is to not have to load up the family to go to lessons!
One of the things we really appreciated was the different websites that were shared with us for additional learning…and they were FREE (you know how I love free!).
The majority of our lessons were focused on J learning smoother rhythm along with additional learning of reading notes and chords.
The only downfall for us is the price…this is directly from MacPhail:
