Is It Any Good?

If your child is set on learning to play the euphonium or clawhammer banjo, but local lessons aren't available, you can look to Lessonface for an expert teacher. The selection of instruments is outstanding, and high school students preparing for college can study with a Juilliard-trained teacher to prep them for auditions. The cost is around what you might pay for a local lesson (that is to say, it'snot cheap), but Lessonface also offers group lessons at a lower cost.

Considering all the challenges live lessons for kids present, privacy-wise, Lessonface seems to have its bases covered, with lots of options for parents to communicate with teachers and know exactly what's going on in each lesson if they like. If your family is already shuttling kids around to lots of activities, Lessonface would be a nice way to simplify your schedule, as it allows kids to take a lesson right in the living room.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
