Early next year, which is in, like, two days, Bandhappy — an online music community founded by Periphery drummer Matt Halpern — will launch.
According to a press release, Bandhappy promises to “reshape how music teachers and students connect in a first-of-its-kind music community.” Bandhappy will offer either in-person lessons or online lessons anywhere on the planet via a custom-built, in-house video chat system.
“Bandhappy really spent the time gathering information from students, teachers and touring artists to create the most well-rounded and groundbreaking online music tool that I’ve seen,” states Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler; we’ll have more on this in our next installment of Adler Chatter. “I’ve given and taken lessons on here myself and even picked up something I used on the new Lamb of God recording. Bandhappy has it all.”
Musicians can use Bandhappy for instant access to a readily available pool of potential students, so they can teach whatever they want, whenever they want, wherever they want.
“Bandhappy makes it easy for musicians to manage their teaching schedules effortlessly, while still doing what they love to do and earn income even when they’re out on the road. The touring musicians who created Bandhappy have made the entire process hassle-free for both students and teachers. Everything from scheduling to payment is handled seamlessly in one place, on their easy-to-navigate, user-friendly site.”
Adler — and his brother Willie — are connected to the site, as are Animals As Leaders’ Tosin Abasi, The Human Abstract’s AJ Minette, Evan Brewer from The Faceless, Between The Buried and Me’s Paul Waggoner and Peter Wichers of Soilwork.
