Conway, P. (2014) "Lessonface Website Review" CommonSenseMedia.org
"LESSONFACE offers online music lessons in real time, with a real person.

Considering all the challenges live lessons for kids present, privacy-wise, Lessonface seems to have its bases covered, with lots of options for parents to communicate with teachers and know exactly what's going on in each lesson if they like. If your family is already shuttling kids around to lots of activities, Lessonface would be a nice way to simplify your schedule, as it allows kids to take a lesson right in the living room."
