TakeLessons Review and Giveaway

This contest is over. The first winner did not reply so a new one was picked. The winner now is Heather C. Congrats!


Have you ever wished you learned something?  For me, it is piano.  I can play quite a few instruments, but I never learned piano.  We've talked several times about buying a piano, but I was always at a loss of how to get lessons.  I am not real comfortable just answering an ad on Craigslist or in the newspaper.  However, TakeLessons solves everything for me.

TakeLessons is a resource for those looking for private music and voice lessons.  You can quickly and easily register via their site for local private lessons with a TakeLessons Certified Instructor.  It is super easy to do so — all you need to do is enter your zip code, and you'll get a list of all the instructors in your area.  Since I live close to Chicago, I had two pages full of instructions.  I love that TakeLessons has their own certification process — they check the education background, teaching experience, references, and do a criminal background check.  When the instructor is listed for you to look at, you are able to see all of this information in their profile.  They make it super easy to set up a lesson too.  They even have a guarantee:  if your first lesson is not handled in a friendly, efficient and professional manner, they will gladly find you another instructor or refund any future lessons. All you need to do is contact them within three days after your lesson has taken place and we will set you up with another instructor.

I think this is such a great concept that I am giving away 2 (aff) free lessons to one of my lucky readers!  Here's what you need to do:

  1. I want my daughter to learn Piano but not sure how to figure out her interest first. I checked and there 5+ instructors in my area. I would love to explore them. thanks

  2. I learned that their instructors go through a screening process with a background check. There are not very many in my area, but there is one not too far that teaches piano so that is who I would choose for my daughter.

  3. There is a teacher less than 1 mile from me. I could walk there! I joined your newsletter.
