Did You Ever Want To Learn To Play An Instrument?

Most people either didnât want to learn to play one or in some cases like mine, were forced to learn to play an instrument they thought was useless. Today of course there are much friendlier options for kids to learn how to play an instrument. One of the absolute best options has to be learning from free online programs conducted by public libraries. One I have found and have used myself is from Lorain Public Library System from Cleveland Ohio. Now I donât live within 7000 miles of Cleveland but I can still use this system. My goal here is to provide you some insight into this topic and if you are looking for more in-depth information you can click here. Letâs continue our discussion, shall we?

In my teenage years my school decided we had to learn to play an instrument, and of course everyone wanted a guitar or saxophone, I got handed a flute, and had no idea what it was when it was handed to me. I did learn about the flute, mostly that I couldnât play the thing. At the time I hated every single minute that I was forced to try and learn how to play it. As you can gather I never did learn and to be brutal about it now, with the attitude I had then they were wasting their time and mine.

The Lorain public library system offers a program called ArtistWorks to to anyone who wants to study. It is a video-based art and music instruction program that is made by Recorded Books. Recorded Books say they are the largest independent publisher of audio books, and they are also the largest provider of digital media to the market. The library has teamed up with them to provide clients with readily available downloadable and streamable material. The material is available from Internet enabled browsers, that means you donât need any kind of app or software to view the material.

The material is also available for viewing on all these devices, desktops, laptops, tablets and smart phones. The sheer number of instruments and music genres available through this program is staggering considering that the beginner level courses and the intermediate level courses are all free.

The beauty of doing courses from an online source is that the instruction is available to you 24/7 as long as you have access to the Internet. You can however also download upcoming lessons so that you donât need the Internet access. I have never tried this so I donât know how it works but I would guess you would not be able to download more than one or two future lessons. These courses are progressive in nature so that kind of system would make sense.

As well is teaching instruments, you can also learn other things using this type of course structure from this provider. You can learn how to sing properly or if you want to you can learn how to paint or draw. To get a full listing of the courses that ArtistWorks has available you would have to go to their website because even the Lorain Library does not provide all of the courses available, they do however say that you can find where a course is available from the providerâs website.
