Concert Musician provides a way to receive a first class music education from the comfort of your home. During the first week of the COVID-19 shutdown, we saw more than 5000 students enroll in our free piano course. That's when the idea of Concert Musician was born. The shutdown highlighted the need for everyone to be able to receive an education from the safety of their home. At Concert Musician we do our part by focusing on providing a stellar music education.
Is the education you will receive at Concert Musician really as good as what you would receive from a private teacher?
It really depends on the the quality of the teacher and the learning style of the student. Dan Hegelund knows how to take a student from complete beginner to advanced level. He has won many awards and brings an expertise and talent that most music teachers cannot match. Likewise, many students like being able to watch, rewind, pause, and rewatch a lesson, and enjoy the visual aid of recorded lessons. We have received hundreds of 5-star reviews, so evidently many students seem to prefer our teaching method.
How much will I save by choosing Concert Musician compared to private lessons?
Concert Musician will save you thousands of dollars compared to a traditional music education. All our beginner courses are free. Our Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced courses cost $30. That's less than $1/lesson. Compare that to private lessons which cost anything from $60 to $350 per hour. Let's compare:
Scenario 1: John and Mary want to give two of their children music lessons for 9 months. Total: 9 (months) x $280 (tuition) x 2 (children) = $5040. Luckily, they found Concert Musician. Our Total: 3 courses (101, 201, and 301) x 2 = $120. Savings $4920. That was just nine months. Imagine three years, or five.
Scenario 2: Tom always wanted to learn how to sing well. He is surprised when he learns that the local vocal coach charges $350/hour. Tom thinks it may be worth it. Then he learns that Concert Musician, offers a singing course for free. By opting for Concert Musician, Tom saved thousands of dollars.
If our product is so good, why do we make our courses so affordable?
There are two reasons. The first reason is scale. A private teacher has to charge so much because he is teaching only one person. Concert Musician can reach thousands of students simultaneously. The second reason is that we want students from other nations to be able to enroll as well. While $30 dollars may be affordable for the average American family, there are many countries around the world where $30 is a significant chunk of their household budget. Dan Hegelund is also the senior pastor at Tacoma Faith and has a heart to reach other nations.
How often will courses be released?
We plan to launch a new course every month. We will start by focusing on piano lessons, then we will branch out to vocals and other instruments. Be patient. We are a family business, so a course per month is about as fast as we can produce them. Feel free to suggest content at firstname.lastname@example.org
