This will be the first year that my husband and I are planning to homeschool 4 of our 5 children. It was a tough decision and one that we spent a lot of time investigating before we made our final decision to jump in and go for it. One of our biggest fears was that our children would miss out on the "extras"...things like Art, Phys Ed, and most especially music. Music played an important role in my life as a child- I was active in band, orchestra, and vocal groups and truly believe it is something that all children should experience. That does not mean that I remember ANY of those talents or skills to pass along to my children but it is something that I do want to share with them! Thankfully for us, we learned about TakeLessons! It is the answer that we were looking for because it is an option that fits so easily into our lives.
TakeLessons is a fantastic service that connects students and families with private music instructors and academic instructors who can provide in home, in studio, and even ONLINE lessons. Your child can select from over 30 different courses - things like guitar, violin, dance, acting, and even singing lessons! This means that each of my children can select the course that suits them- thank goodness...5 drummers would be a lot to handle! TakeLessons makes it so easy to jump in and get started. They have already done a thorough screening of the instructors INCLUDING an extensive background check as well as provide you the tools to handle scheduling, billing, and coordination...the hardest thing you have to decide is which class to take!
The lesson prices vary depending on which service you select. Their most popular lesson package is Quarterly (book 12 lessons, get 1 free). They also include month-to-month options and even Flex lessons where you coordinate lesson times as you go along with your instructor. TakeLessons also provides a 100% Money Back Guarantee! If you're not satisfied with your first lesson, they will find you another teacher, or refund all of your original purchase price, including the first lesson. The best part is that TakeLessons isn't just for kids! They can provide teachers for all ages and all experience levels so I can still pick up my flute and start a band with my kids! I can totally get behind a "Partridge Family" type group. I will grab my gogo boots (yep, I have them) and have always wanted to paint a bus so here goes nothing!
If you are interested in checking out TakeLessons, you are in luck! They have offered my readers 20% off all lessons packages with promo code “SUMMERMUSIC38”!
