Press Release: TakeLessons (www.takelessons.com), an online marketplace that matches students with the best instructors, today announced a contest that will leverage Google Helpouts, Google’s new marketplace for receiving help over live video. One lucky winner will be given the opportunity of a lifetime: a free, 30-minute online guitar lesson with guitarist David Kennedy from Angels & Airwaves. The randomly selected winner will schedule his or her music lesson with the renowned Southern California musician. As a launch partner with Google Helpouts, TakeLessons will continue to offer music, arts and tutoring listings through the platform.
“Following the launch of Google Helpouts, our top tutors and private instructors have been giving lessons to those who want to learn and improve their skills, all via live video,” said Co-Founder and CEO of TakeLessons, Steven Cox. “David Kennedy represents a sector of modern rock music popular across the globe. Now, via Google Helpouts, one lucky winner will see how fun it can be to take a live lesson from a remote location, but on this special occasion, they’ll learn from a true American rock star.”
TakeLessons powers various Helpouts listings in the music, arts and academic tutoring categories. Until 11:59pm PST on November 22nd, contest participants can visit the TakeLessons.com Facebook page, Angels & Airwaves Facebook page, or Google Helpouts to enter for a chance to win.
