UCLA Extension, in partnership with ArtistWorks, is pleased to offer an exclusive package of online music lessons for students interested in learning to play the piano, guitar, or sing. This unique opportunity allows you to study with world-renowned performers and master teachers in their fields—all on your schedule. Once you select your instrument, you will be enrolled in a quarter-long experience that will allow you to learn at your own pace from anywhere in the world where you have access to the internet and are comfortable singing and / or playing. Once a student, you will be able to access the special UCLA Extension environment where you will have unlimited access to all recorded video lessons for your instrument and the full video exchange archive, three opportunities to record your progress through video recordings and submit work to your master teacher for review, post videos on your own student page, use background tracks to improve your performance as a member of a group, learn music theory, and participate in special live monthly broadcasts. This program provides you meaningful music-making opportunities whether you are a first-time learner, picking up a new instrument, brushing up on an instrument after many years, a composer, or other music professional focused on the joy of making music.
