NEW YORK, May 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lessonface, the digital platform for live music lessons that brings together highly qualified music teachers and professional musicians from around the world with aspiring music students of all ages, today announced the company is expanding its class roster yet again. Lessonface is offering exciting new classes, bringing its weekly live online music and language class total to 50, featuring renowned musicians and educators hailing from not only the United States, but also from India, Colombia, Guatemala, and beyond. Many of the all-ages classes are completely free, though enrollment is limited. To register please visit www.lessonface.com.

Lessonface connects students with music instructors based on skill, level, availability and class pricing for instruments including the piano, violin, guitar, voice, trumpet, banjo, ukulele, harmonica and more. In addition to live, online 1:1 lessons and group classes, which Lessonface has been offering for more than seven years, the company recently launched its new Group Online (GO) class format, where students of all ages can find weekly group classes with sliding scale enrollment, starting at free. 

“For more than seven years we’ve been building our collaborative platform for music education online, providing lessons, classes, recitals, and open mics for students of over 80 instruments,” said Claire Cunningham, Founder and CEO at Lessonface. “Last fall we added language lessons and classes, and this new set of classes we announced today are a unique amalgamation of the two schools of music and language, with a concentration of courses with some neighbors to the south, in Spanish and Latin American language and music. Though we may not be physically traveling right away, we can journey for an hour, see the faces, and interact with teachers and artists, whether they're in Fargo, NYC, Bogotá, or Seville."
