Shredkick Announces One-Time Event in Staten Island to Promote Music Education

Combining the advantages of face-to-face instruction with those of online lessons can help aspiring musicians quickly master guitar playing, publishes


Staten Island, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/29/2014 -- While the countless benefits of music have been long known throughout the world, a recent neurological study revealed merely listening to music can reduce stress by up to 33 percent. Those positive elements are more than doubled for those who can play an instrument. This is old news to the 20 million Americans who currently possess some level of guitar playing skills; however, an estimated 30 percent of Americans who have the will but not the opportunity to learn this art have yet to experience those gains.

For the thousands living in Staten Island and the surrounding areas who fall into the category of those who want to learn guitar, Michael Hayes of Shredkick has announced an unprecedented upcoming event. The company's staff of local guitar masters will soon be gathering in Staten Island to speak to the public about music education. Comprised of virtuosos in every genre, these instructors combine various teaching methods to help those of all current skill levels become proficient.

Said Hayes, "We encourage anyone interested in learning guitar quickly and easily to join us for this one-time event. We will be offering written articles and video tutorials online as well as face-to-face lessons via Skype. Our instructors meet or exceed Graduate level in Music Education and are backed with at least 10 years of experience in playing guitar along with 5 years or more in teaching the skill."

One-on-one lessons have proven themselves over the centuries, providing instruction to music students on an individual basis. This allows students personal time with their instructors for asking questions and addressing problem areas as needed. Consumer surveys indicate the main drawback of this learning strategy is balancing students' home and work schedules against available lesson times.

This downfall has played a major role in the popularity of online lessons due to students' ability to learn on their own time and at their own pace, but this, too, has its disadvantages. Those who attempt to learn an instrument solely online admit the lack of time with a physical instructor hampers their learning capacity. This leaves millions of aspiring musicians in a stalemate when it comes to honing their skills.

Hayes concluded, "We offer the best of both worlds by combining the flexibility of online lessons with face-to-face time with our instructors. We are happy to work with our students' schedules to ensure they are able to make the most of our teaching strategies. Anyone who wants to find out more about our lessons and our one-time event may fill out the form on our website for more information."
