Music & Arts, the nation’s largest music lessons provider, continues its mission to share and support the merits of music education with a special event. Students, parents and educators are invited to attend an Open House weekend for free guitar lessons, a free guitar offer, live music and to explore the variety of musical instrument lesson opportunities offered in their studios. The nationwide event will take place the weekend ofJanuary 25, 2019, at all locations that offer musical instrument lessons.
Special on-site programs and opportunities will be offered at each location during the event:
All weekend long: visitors can tour the lesson studios and meet Music & Arts’ university-trained, background-checked instructors. Those who enroll in a month of musical instrument lessons will receive their choice of a free seafoam green Fender Stratocaster electric guitar, a Laurel Canyon full-size or ¾ size acoustic guitar, or a Laurel Canyon ukulele, while supplies last.*
Music & Art’s Lesson Open House Event has had a positive impact in the past. Luca Latcu, a 9-year-old student from Schaumburg, IL, took advantage of the free guitar offer and it has truly changed his life, helping him to integrate into a new community. His instructor Nick Reuille shares, “Luca and his family are new to the Schaumburg area from overseas. Since they moved to the area, Luca has been begging his parents to take guitar lessons. Because of our promotion, Luca was able to receive an electric guitar as well as lessons! He’s only had a few lessons, but he’s already progressing. Luca says he wants to be a rock star when he grows up!”
Friday Jan. 25 from 6-8pm: Musicians will have the opportunity to perform as a soloist or band — or watch local favorites — during the “Take the Stage” open mic night.
Saturday Jan. 26 at 11am and 1pm: Free “Pointers-4-Players” classes will guide beginner guitar players through the first steps of learning, as taught by a professional instructor. No guitar? No problem! Borrow one at no charge for the class.
The events will take place at all Music & Arts locations that offer lessons. To find a convenient location and to RSVP for free online, visit www.MusicArts.com/OpenHouse.
Music & Arts teaches over 1.5 million lessons per year, with customized lessons for a variety of musical instruments to fit all levels, ages, and genres of music. Open house weekend is designed to support music education and to encourage new musicians to begin a lifelong relationship with music.
“It’s been shown that people who learn a musical instrument do better in other areas of life, too, so we’d like to make it easier than ever before to learn by providing an instrument new students can use to get started,” says Renier Fee, Music & Arts marketing director.

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.

Mojotone will manufacture and market over 60 of their speaker cabinets and amp kits as “Licensed by Fender.”
This partnership marks Fender's recognition of Mojotone’s dedication to its craft, quality of products, and dependability of knowledge. Beginning November 29th and ranging from $327 - $1,016.
Amplifiers were among the first products to wear the official Fender seal. A qualified electronics technician by trade, Leo Fender developed his iconic amplifiers during the mid-1940s putting innovation at the forefront. To this day, Leo’s influence and innovative spirit can still be heard in today’s amps, as that same iconic, clean Fender tone continues to color new music around the world. As a result, the process for completing the exclusive licensing deal required Fender to carefully audit Mojotone’s amplifier kits, wiring diagrams, electronics, hardware, construction methods, and more to ensure this innovation carried on through the partnership. Mojotone’s many years of intense research, quality production, and favorable reputation solidified the deal.
Mojotone has always been determined to provide its customer base with the most sought-after parts with their insider industry-knowledge. They have spent the last 25 years helping musicians recreate what they deem to be the most famous and easily-recognized tones and aesthetics in the music industry. When purchasing Mojotone products, like Fender products, customers can be assured of unmatched quality and craftsmanship.
