Bandhappy, the first ever live online and in-person music education service, will open its doors to the public at 11am Eastern time tomorrow, January 5, 2012. Lessons will begin as student accounts are activated on Monday, January 9th. Due to overwhelming demand (thousands of students have requested lessons so far), Bandhappy is currently approving students on a rolling basis. The website offers access to one-on-one lessons – in person or online — with the teacher of your choice, chosen from an impressive roster of professionals in every possible genre. Bandhappy is not specifically focused on just instrument lessons either; lessons will also include all areas of music business and production, as well.
