AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Originally established in Orlando, Florida, Live Music Tutor Inc., announced today that the company will relocate its headquarters to Austin, Texas, where they will continue to provide an online interactive platform for streaming music lessons between instructors and students. Live Music Tutor also will bring employment opportunities for Austin musicians who wish to earn extra money in music education.
“Austin is a city that supports and loves the music industry,” says Ted Gee, co-founder of Live Music Tutor. “We are excited to plant our roots here and contribute to the trade by helping musicians make a living while fostering new talent and bringing top-notch music lessons to budding musicians around the globe.”
Live Music Tutor uses a proprietary web-based platform that allows musicians to teach and students to take lessons anytime, anywhere around the world. With an Internet connection and a video camera, students of all levels can login and select a customized curriculum that fits their needs through live streaming two-way video lessons taught by a roster of talented and trusted instructors. The accessibility, convenience and schedule flexibility of Live Music Tutor makes it a unique and easy way to get people involved in music education. Along with individual tutoring sessions, the program also provides group, celebrity, and master lessons.
“We have developed a real-time interactive, conversational tool that so far has delivered over 20,000 lessons to students in over 220 countries,” notes Gee. “We wanted to remove the traditional constraints of limited schedules, driving, and geography to allow as many people as possible to benefit from learning to play an instrument.”
Students choose their own highly trained instructors available for more than 30 instruments including voice, from piano and violin to drums and guitar. The customized curriculum of each class works for all ages and skill levels. Then, students can practice and re-watch sessions, which will live in their online library. The Live Music Tutor platform also has a social component, which lets users chat with instructors and other students.
The platform supports an interactive community of music professionals to manage and monetize their skills. Live Music Tutor thoroughly screens their instructors, and each must pass background checks. An online rating system ensures that the best instructors are retained. The student’s progress is evaluated by the instructor, while the instructor is also evaluated by the student.
One-on-one classes range in price from $25-$60. For more information, to sign up for classes, or to become an instructor, visit www.livemusictutor.com.
