About Lessonface

Lessonface with flowers and a neon signLessonface connects students to great music teachers for live lessons online. Our lessons platform offers a modernized version of the ages-old learning approach of a one-on-one lesson with an expert instructor, which means you will find:

  • Great teachers, vetted by our staff and reviewed by verified students
  • Flexible payment and scheduling options -- book one lesson at a time, in packages, or subscribe
  • Reliable video conferencing, with built-in optional recording of the lessons 
  • A 24-hour cancellation and rescheduling policy
  • Our first lesson guarantee

Lessonface welcomes a community that spans ages and levels, with the common thread being respectful treatment of students and teachers and a love of learning. Most of our students sign up individually and as families. We also provide lesson and class programs to community centers, including schools and libraries. Lessonface is COPPA & PCI compliant, for safe and reliable use by all ages.

Founded in Brooklyn, NY, in 2013, Lessonface moved to the West Village/Meatpacking district of New York City in 2017 and is now located in the renowned Westbeth Artist Community-- the very same beautiful building that housed Bell Labs until 1966! So we are under the same roof where the transistor, the photovoltaic cell, and a wealth of other 20th century innovations were developed, which may sound like internet puffery but is quite true.

Our office and studio entrance is pictured to the right. We host seminars, workshops, group classes and small concerts here, to support and to promote our lessons community. Most of our live studio events can also be attended remotely via live streaming video. Check out the upcoming event schedule

Here is a recent photo from one of our fall 2018 Face the Music events, with, from L to R, Yonit Spiegelman, our head of artist relations; our guest mentor, guitarist Alex Skolnick; guitarist and teacher Ray Suhy; Flavio Lira, our director of operations and producer; and Claire Cunningham, co-founder and CEO. The photo was taken by Ashford Tucker, co-founder and legal counsel.
