Quality online private lessons from jazz musicians

Member sign up(free)

Music Lesson Online (MLO) offers online private lessons for all levels of players from beginners, intermediate to advanced level players. Are you having difficult time finding an instructor in your area? Do you want to become a professional jazz musician? MLO can help you find an instructor for you.

Our instructors are professional jazz musicians from all over the world. They are performers but they also make their time available to give lessons to all levels of students. Instructors give lessons online from their studio or home office and you can learn from your own home, office or studio via PC or tablet PC.

Instructors give private lessons tailored for your skill level. Lessons are fun and instructors help you improve your skills, knowledge or whatever you want to learn. If you are an amature musician, improvisation may be one of the skills you want to learn. You can learn the basic playing technique for improvisation from the professional musicians. They can also give you lessons on music theory for improvisation for all levels of students.

Ultimate goal for all jazz players is to perform improvisation sessions with your jazz friends. Professional jazz musicians can give you the best lessons for improvisation because that’s what they perform in front of their audience.

Are you worried about the language barrier because instructors may not speak your language? Many of MLO students take lessons from instructors who do not speak their language because instructors give music lessons not in just words but by their actual performance. Most of the instructors find English as a common language. You only need to learn few basic jazz terminology to start your communication with instructors. We hope you take up on the challenge many MLO students have already done to take lessons from instructors all over the world.

You may want to give MLO lessons as a gift to your family or friends. (please click here for more information)
