Live Lesson Masters, a website founded by Disco Biscuits’ bassist Marc Brownstein and VP of Global Touring and Talent at AEG Presents Alicia Karlin, debuts today. The site features an “instruction-focused platform for online one-one-one and group lessons.” (Quote via press release.) At its outset, Live Lesson Masters will feature music, yoga and cooking instruction.

The founding of the site was inspired by the fallout from the coronavirus. “Live Lesson Masters was launched in response to the debilitating impact the COVID-19 crisis has had on the global music community,” read a press release “Live Lesson Masters provides immediate revenue opportunities for participating ‘Master’ instructors and helps keep fans connected to their favorite artists during the open-ended cancelation of live shows, festivals, and gatherings throughout the world.”

“In a world where artists and fans are accustomed to using social media as the hub for their communities, Live Lesson Masters’ unique one-on-one offerings take the possibilities of connection much further,” said Alicia Karlin via press release. “Right now, we are all feeling anxious about the current state of things. We hope Live Lesson Masters creates a space where engagement happens, and where people can use this time to further their own creative pursuits and leave their troubles at the door for a while.” 

Marc Brownstein added, “We wanted to provide a seamless platform for musicians and instructors to interface directly with the people. With the industry grinding to a halt, musicians across the country are eager to find new ways to connect with their fans. I have personally booked over 20 lessons with my fans in the first week of the quarantine, and immediately realized how exciting this opportunity could be for both the fans and my fellow musicians.”
