BROOKLYN, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 4, 2013) - LessonFace today announced that the company will launch its online video platform for face-to-face music lessons by showcasing live demos during a party this Thursday, February 7 at the LessonFace headquarters in downtown Brooklyn. After six months piloting its technology for live online music lessons, LessonFace is ready to bring music lessons to online students in an innovative way -- by enabling live, face-to-face interaction with highly qualified music teachers.
"We've concentrated on making the live audio and visual experience of the lessons as great as can be -- because these elements are crucial for experiencing and learning music," said LessonFace CEO Claire Cunningham. "We're excited to showcase the experience in our headquarters next week."
There will be demos throughout the evening with teachers, including: master vocal trainer Lalana Martin from New York City's SoHo, who will join the party via video conference from Los Angeles, where she is traveling to attend the Grammys. Lead guitarist Dave Heumann will school party attendees remotely from Baltimore, just before he leaves on a tour of Europe to promote his band's (Arbouretum) newly released album. Berklee grad Eric Kalver, who will teach drums, also will tune in from sunny Los Angeles.
"Music is about connecting and being social and fun, so we felt a party -- with food, drink, and of course actual instruments -- was the best way to kick things off," said Brandon Simes, LessonFace director of marketing.

How it Works
LessonFace puts music students and teachers together for live lessons, which happen directly through a computer or a tablet. Teachers set their own rates and availability. Students choose their teacher and schedule. All that is required is a computer or tablet (iPad, Android, etc.) with a webcam and an internet connection.
LessonFace, founded in 2012, offers live music lessons online for children, beginners, intermediates, and experts in over 85 categories, from guitar, drums, and trombone to beatboxing and improvisation. With teachers sporting Grammys, hundreds of years of combined expertise in music lessons, and both mature and budding recording and live careers, LessonFace allows students to find the absolute best teacher to meet with face to face, without leaving home.
