Note: This podcast interview was recorded over a year ago for a separate project.
In this GearPipe podcast episode, I speak with Steven Cox, CEO and Founder of TakeLessons
, America’s leading source for private music and voice lessons.
We talk about the state of music education, the strict guidelines TakeLessons private instructor applicants are judged on, and even the role Guitar Hero and American Idol have had on music lesson enrollment.
In the end, Steven leaves me with a great deal of hope about the future of music making, telling me that “even if music (education) is cut, what’s really wonderful about music is that this is not going to stop the level of curiosity and the level of interest that people naturally have in music.”
As Christmas rapidly approaches, and gift-buying deadlines loom near, please consider a TakeLessons gift certificate
