BEAVERCREEK, Ohio, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Many things can be done just as well online as in person, but is learning the guitar one of those things? That's the question many guitar players and teachers are asking themselves. But for students of JamPlay.com (http://www.JamPlay.com), the leader in online guitar lessons, the answer is a resounding yes.
"There is debate among guitar enthusiasts as to whether students are better served by lessons with a face-to-face instructor or by online video lessons," explained JamPlay.com co-founder Kevin Wimer. "Personal interaction certainly has its advantages, but at $30 to $80 per hour, expense is a major drawback. Online guitar lessons are considerably more affordable, and the growth JamPlay.com is experiencing indicates more people are moving to JamPlay's online platform."
Although many students initially begin taking online guitar lessons at JamPlay.com based on the cost -- just $19.95 monthly -- they stick with JamPlay.com because of the depth and breadth of high-quality guitar instruction the site provides. For the monthly membership fee, students get unlimited access to over 500 hours of guitar lessons from 46 professional instructors representing every genre of music. Students can also participate in live webcam lessons for up to 10 hours every day for no additional cost.
JamPlay.com offers acoustic guitar lessons and electric guitar lessons for beginners through advanced guitar players and for children and adults alike. Topics include everything from guitar basics and learning to read music to playing different genres, writing music and playing popular songs. Lessons average 15 to 60 minutes; each is broken into chapters, allowing students to learn as time allows, and includes printable materials to support the lesson. JamPlay.com adds at least one new lesson to the site every day of the year.
The JamPlay.com business model makes it possible for the site to offer its exclusive blend of quality and quantity. As new members join, JamPlay.com is able to acquire additional lessons from more instructors. The greater volume of lessons attracts more students and instructors, and the site ends up sustaining its own growth.
"We believe the vast majority of guitar lessons will occur online in the near future," stated JamPlay co-founder Chris Dawson. "JamPlay.com has already taught tens of thousands of people to play the guitar through a 100% online model, and more are joining every day. The value and quality of the lessons, combined with students' ability to learn from a wide variety of instructors, allows us to offer students a much more diverse learning experience than what would be available to them locally."
JamPlay.com online guitar lessons are available via monthly, quarterly and annual memberships. Membership includes social networking and community features in addition to guitar lessons, supplemental materials and a printable chord library. Learn more at http://www.JamPlay.com.
