Online lessons are quickly becoming the wave of the future. No longer do you need to order a DVD and wait for it to come in the mail, or shop around your local music store for a book that actually offers substantial information.
That being said, as with every new wave, there is always a ton of scamming companies ready to hop on the bandwagon to make a quick buck off of unsuspecting buyers.
In this WorkshopLive review, we’ll discuss whether this is just another company looking to scam you out of your money, or a genuine online community that will help you to grow as a musician.
WorkshopLive offers over twenty-four hundred lessons tailored to various skill levels, pertaining to guitar, bass, drums, and piano. Each lesson is filmed in high quality, and altogether, they offer over fifteen thousand videos. That’s a lot of content, and although we didn’t have the chance to watch all fifteen thousand, the videos we did watch were each as well made as the last.
They have over fifty instructors, all of which are degree holders in various musical fields (which is a nice variation from the many “I learned to play guitar so can you” programs with no information).
They offer animated tabs, musical notation synchronized to the lesson, and guitar chord charts to help you understand each and every aspect of your playing. This makes it easy to walk along with the various lessons.
They also offer a fair amount of free trial lessons so that you can get a taste of what it is like to use the website before you shell out the cash for a membership.
You get printable exercise sheets, as well as a site metronome and tuner to allow you to develop crucial timing skills and stay in tune throughout your lessons.
The site offers a media player so that you can play different MP3’s and other files, as well as great customer service and lesson help, all online.
Although relatively new to the scene, WorkshopLive is impressive. They have emerged as one of the top online music learning systems in only five years. This is due to the staggering amount of material and resources they offer.
The lessons are easy to follow, and each and every concept is taken and broken down so that you can understand the techniques involved. The lessons vary from beginner lessons such as scales and triads, to advanced lessons covering arpeggios, sweeping, and tons of other great techniques. All in all, we don’t have much negative to say in our WorkshopLive review.
The things that are a bit bothersome are the fees. Obviously, we don’t expect it to be free, but if you decide to subscribe for consecutive years, you get no discounts. The price is roughly the same as most DVD sets. The only problem is, unlike the DVD sets, the amount of things you learn for the price are limited to how much time you have off during the year.
This is a bit of a downer. But, if you have a ton of free time, WorkshopLive will be a great tool that will allow you to improve every aspect of your playing.
