St. Lucie County Libraries Now Offer Online Music Lessons

Now is your chance to become the musician you always dreamed yourself to be. Dust off your instrument and, courtesy of the St. Lucie County Library System, learn to play the guitar, the piano, the ukulele and more.

Free to all St. Lucie County Library card holders, ArtistWorks is dedicated to providing anyone, anywhere in the world with affordable, interactive access to some of the greatest music teachers in the world. Their mission is to “Teach the World Music.” The online tool connects master teachers with enthusiastic players.

In 2008, former AOL executive David Butler set out to finally master jazz guitar. With no acceptable teachers in his area, he eventually built a revolutionary online platform that enables anyone with an Internet connection to get ongoing, personal feedback from one of our hand-selected virtuoso teachers, on their own schedule, at their own pace. Today, ArtistWorks, LLC. hosts more than 50,000 video lessons, features 35 teachers and has taught tens of thousands of students from 80-plus countries.

You will need a library card to get started. Don’t have one? St. Lucie Library staff are issuing them over the phone Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 772-871-5470. If you already have library card, visit the Library’s webpage, and go to E-Resources.
