BandHappy Official Thread

Hey there guys, I would like to share with you a new way to receive online lessons! Matt Halpern, of Peripherym, is starting a website called 'BandHappy' to receive online, guitar, bass, drum, vocal, recording, etc lessons. There is already a long list of familiar faces on there that I know many of you will enjoy. The roster of artists is constantly growing. With teacher names such as Matt Halpern, Devin Shidaker (envenomedcky), Neil Boshart, Paul Ortiz, Chris Letchford & many more. Keep checking back to this thread for more information, launch details, etc. Also check the facebook web-page.

i was thinking how are guys like tosin and aj (the human abstract) going to teach people who cant read music and understand no music theory?

I don't think that we ever thought of it as the equivalent of music, as the end-goal was to buy more in-game slut clothes-- schecterwhore on rock band

Each teacher is going to have their own personal page with information, you will also be able to save each video session to go back and watch it again.

I'm just gonna go ahead and this.

How is this not being talked about more seriously? Have you guys seen some of the names of the guys who will be teaching on here?

If you're going to 'like' my posts, give me some rep instead.

Also the advertisement that was released looked really professional, as does the layout of the website, I'm honestly really surprised how well this project has turned out.. I'll definitely be signing up when its released!

It's like doing lessons over Skype. But I'm guessing there has to be more to the idea than that... maybe an interface for providing the notation material. And obviously it must provide a more organized way for students to find teachers and sign up for lessons, and also simplify the payment process so teachers aren't having to keep tabs on a million paypal transactions. In other words there must be some features to make the teachers' lives simpler and also reach a greater # of students, otherwise I think they would be sticking to skype and paypal.

Really excited about Michael Keene teaching on there. I have this feeling that I'll be nervous taking lessons from him haha. He's never seemed the social type.

I hope the prices are the standard $40 an hour, hell even Broderick was charging $40 an hour over skype right until he joined Megadeth.

the only problem i have with this idea is i cant imagine that most people will be able to give consistent lessons to 1 person.

there is a thrill and a novelty to be had by getting a couple neat lessons from your idols.

but beyond that i cant imagine it being much of a tool.

i cant wait for the neverending youtube installments of lessons from random people though

I've been super excited about the lineup of teachers they have, and am even moreso especially now that the guys from Being have jumped on. Looks like a fantastic site.

My teacher account has now been activated. The site looks really good. I've posted a few potential lessons on various things, priced at $25USD for the 30 minute lessons and $40USD for the 60 minute lessons. I'm very open to lesson requests.

You can find me at:
AdamSatur | BANDHAPPY

It's difficult to tell at the moment but I hope the search brings up teachers with their student rating contributing to their place in the results.


Check out my book: "Playing Guitar Musically: A Guide to Creativity on Guitar & Bass"
Buy the full book here. eBook - 5. Physical copies also available.

PM me if you want to discuss it or just fancy a chat.

I also give lessons over Skype, and within the Lothians.
