"Now based in Brooklyn, N.Y., Spiegelman today teaches students located from Memphis, Tenn. to Turkey and Afghanistan on Lessonface—without leaving her home. By cutting down on local travel to lessons, she has more time to teach. And when she is touring as a performer, she doesn’t have to cancel her lessons." From Forbes
