"MP3 Audio Lessons"



Seeking the 'Real' Thing?

"MP3 Audio Lessons" is a special site addition for Vision Music Members only, where students can continue to receive great lessons, but with an entirely new, exciting interactive learning experience. Using an MP3 player, the student now has the option of accessing special audio lessons in MP3 format. You'll be hearing me speak to you and describe the lesson while I'm demonstrating it on a guitar or bass. Pretty cool, eh? For details on joining for only pennies a day, click here.

Note: what you'll need (if you don't have one already), is an MP3 player for your browser. You'll be able to access, then listen to the audio with a single mouse click, while viewing the same high-quality lesson scores (with tablature) that Vision Music is famous for.

The examples shown below are just the "tip of the iceberg," so click away & enjoy the best interactive lessons on the web!
