When it comes to Black Friday music deals, the natural inclination is to search the web for discounts on hardware - everything from guitars and recording gear, to electronic drum sets have had their prices slashed this year. But what if you have everything you need, and you simply want to get better at playing, or enhance your mixing skills, say? Well, there’s a Black Friday deal for that, with online guitar lessons and online piano lessons sites offering mega discounts right now.

Maybe your new year’s resolution is to brush up your playing skills, or someone in your family is getting an instrument for Christmas and you want to get them started on the right foot? Online platforms are a great way to learn remotely via quality video content from expert tutors.

Do you play guitar and want 50% off lessons with Fender Play? You got it. Or maybe you’re a pianist or drummer looking to improve?
