Ashbury Music Hall Partners With Blue Bear School of Music to Officially Bring Its Classes Online

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - September 22, 2009) - Ashbury Music Hall, a new collaborative and educational online platform for music instructors and students, today announced a strategic partnership with Blue Bear School of Music to officially bring its classes online. Ashbury Music Hall is making it possible for Blue Bear students to enhance their traditional physical class experience with supplemental and interactive online materials available at a minimal cost. This online upgrade conveniently gives students access to the assignments and class handouts from their home and makes it possible for students to practice and collaborate at any time.

"We're pleased to offer our students a rich interactive online experience to supplement their coursework, " said Kevin Marlatt, Executive Director of Blue Bear School of Music. "With the opportunity to watch video playbacks, share audio recordings and connect with the instructor and classmates anytime, our students will be able to experience learning music like never before," adds Marlatt.

In addition to offering supplemental online material, Blue Bear will offer a variety of purely online classes for the virtual student. Enrollment is now open for Beginning Acoustic Guitar with Kent Brown, a highly demanded course, plus more advanced courses taught by sought after instructors including Pentatonic Scales 101: Soloing over Rock and Blues with Mike Powell, Low String Twangy Guitar with Randy Clark and Modern Electric Bass with Jon Herrera. Classes begin September 28.
