Celebrating Lessonface's Fifth Year

This month Lessonface celebrates the fifth anniversary of our launch in February 2013. It has been a wonderful journey so far, and I wanted to write a quick note to mark the occasion, especially as we have achieved some noteworthy milestones in this past year:

Meet Your Mentor: Emily Coulston

Lessonface is happy to announce the revival of our podcast, Meet Your Mentor! We're starting off with our February Teacher of the Month, Emily Coulston. Emily is a songwriting, voice, and guitar teacher, as well as a talented performer. The podcast begins with an intimate recording of Emily's song, "Hands" and continues on with her experience as an educator and songwriter. 

The Importance of Transcription

An amazing way to enhance your musical vocabulary

Transcription may sound like a fancy musical term, but the truth is you have probably already transcribed a tune and didn’t even know it! Let’s start with Merriam Webster’s definition: 

Transcription - an arrangement of a musical composition for some instrument or voice other than the original.

Sound Bites

Sound Bites are live-streamed events with accomplished musical artists to discuss their sources of inspiration and motivation. The events are streamed, recorded, and totally free to watch live or re-watch later. Sign up on each individual event page to send your questions or comments for the artist(s) ahead of time, and to get access to the event recordings.

Mike Mitchell: Teacher of the Year!

Mike Mitchell, Lessonface Teacher of the Year!

...treat it no differently than they would coming to a studio in person.  Be committed to the process, realize that the instruction is the same, whether on screen or in the room.  Your work is no different.  The learning process is the same. 

--Mike Mitchell, Lessonface teacher of the year's advice on Lessonface & online music lessons
