Music education has made my life an amazing journey. I have something to look forward to everday.
Music education is fundamental to a well-rounded education.
I was fortunate to have teachers who were knowledgeable and dedicated. This is now possible on a much broader scale.
Every child has musical potential that can be brought out through supportive parents, a healthy environment and good teachers.
Our lesson plans are organized into intuitive, systematic curriculums. Every video is accompanied by a written transcription of the oral lesson, sheet music, an application for feedback, and a progress tracker to ensure accessibility and success for all learning styles.
Our prices are the most affordable on the internet, keeping in mind those who have never been able to access high quality music education. Choose from our database of 14 instruments or, if you're like us, access them all!
Our program is beneficial for students learning at home, as a teaching tool in schools, as a supplement to private lessons, for developing high quality music programs, and for community building.
"The Practicing Musician is a valuable resource for anyone looking for affordable music lessons. The level of musicianship and the quality of the teachers guarantee a great experience. I'm a believer!"
"I am a strong advocate of promoting music education to as many people who are interested as possible. After hearing how the Practicing Musician will offer tutorials, much like Khan academy, for people to learn how to play a musical instrument, I was inspired and hopeful that this project will reach a wide spectrum of people."

Come Fall 2017, the Practicing Musician will be tested in public and private schools from the Seattle to Burlington-Edison school districts. If you are an individual user who would like to test this program from home, please contact Jake Douglass by email at email@example.com. This process will be ongoing throughout the 2017-2018 school year to ensure the program's efficacy in many different settings. If you believe that the joy of playing a musical instrument should be accessible to everyone, please help us turn this dream into a reality.
