Groupon

Thank you to all who purchased our NEW Groupon Offer! 

Great News!  This time around, you may take Voice, Piano, Guitar, Violin, Dobro, or Mandolin Lessons!

The first step for redeeming your Groupon is filling out our Registration Form.

IMPORTANT NOTICE!   The deadline for taking your first lesson (on our most recent Groupon offers) was Wednesday, March 6, 2013.  Once your lessons have begun, you must complete all lessons in your package within 30 days of the original lesson (or 60 days if you purchased 4 half-hour lessons).

Cancellation Policy:

Our regular policy of 24-hours' notice required to cancel or reschedule lessons will be followed for Groupon customers. We are working very hard to meet our students' scheduling needs, so we appreciate your understanding and consideration for our teachers and your fellow students who are also trying to schedule their lessons. If less than 24-hours’ notice is provided for canceling a lesson, a fee, up to the amount paid for the Groupon lesson, will apply.

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

How do I schedule my lessons?

Just fill out the Groupon Registration Form so we can help match you up with the teacher best suited to you!  As soon as we receive your registration form, we will call or email you (your choice) to set up your first lesson.

back to FAQ list

Can I use more than one Groupon for myself?

No, unfortunately.  The purpose behind this Groupon offer is to allow students to get a taste of what we do, to determine if they enjoy taking private lessons, and how they feel about working with a particular teacher.  We feel that the packages offered give a reasonable amount of time to do this.  The teachers are taking a drastically reduced amount for the lessons (after Groupon takes their cut, teachers take home less than 25% of what they would normally charge), so you can understand why we need to limit the offer to one Groupon per person.  However, if you purchased more than one Groupon, you may give it as a gift to a friend or loved one.  Think what a wonderful gift that would be!

back to FAQ list

Can I choose the teacher?

Absolutely.  We encourage you to read each teacher's bio, listen to their audio clips, and read their students' comments to help you decide.  We know our teachers well, so if you need help, we can guide you to the teacher who is right for you, and with whom you can build a great working relationship, based on your goals, style of music preferred, as well as location and availability.

back to FAQ list 

Can I try more than one teacher?

Sure!  We understand that finding the right "chemistry" between teacher and student is crucial.  So, if you find you're not 100% thrilled with the first teacher you try, feel free to use remaining visits with another teacher.  But we are going to do everything we can to make you happy, so we doubt this is going to be an issue!

back to FAQ list 

Is there a minimum or maximum age allowed?

We work with students of all ages.  However, for piano, we recommend students be at least age 5, because that's when most children have enough finger strength to press the keys.  Knowing their numbers and letters is also helpful.  There is absolutely NO maximum age!  We encourage everyone to engage in learning to sing and play instruments for life, and it's never too late to start!

back to FAQ list

Can I mix it up and take piano, voice, and guitar lessons?

Yes, you may redeem your Groupon for any combination of lessons, including voice, piano, guitar, violin/fiddle, mandolin, dobro, and composition!

back to FAQ list 

Can I use my Groupon for in-home lessons?

We have two teachers - Sharon Stanley & Wendy Boyce - who are offering to do in-home lessons.  If you live within 20 miles of Hancock Park (the 90004 zipcode), you may opt to take in-home voice lessons with Sharon Stanley.  If you live within 10 miles of Westwood (zip code 90024), you may take voice &/or piano lessons with Wendy Boyce.  If not, you still have the option of coming to our other studio locations listed above.

back to FAQ list 

Can I share my Groupon with a friend?

You may purchase additional Groupons for as many friends as you like, but each Groupon package is valid for one person only.  Why?  We want to provide the best experience for both students and teachers, and we want you to really get a chance to see some progress in technique, while getting a true sense of whether this teacher could be the one to take you to the next level.  If you'll commit your time to the process and see it through all the lessons in your package, we think you'll have the best experience possible.

back to FAQ list 

Can I use my Groupon to book a group lesson?

Ideally, this offer is to allow you to take advantage of private sessions with an instructor.  But if you and a friend BOTH have purchased the Groupon package, you may redeem them together, provided you discuss this with your teacher ahead of time. 

back to FAQ list 

When does my Groupon expire?

This Groupon offer will expire on March 6, 2013.  You must at least begin your lessons by that date.  Once you begin your lessons, the remainder of your lessons must be taken within 30 days (or 60 days if you purchased 4 half-hour lessons).  We will do our very best to accommodate your request for scheduling, but we ask that you please do not wait until the last minute to redeem your Groupon, because appointments are scheduled according to instructors' availability, and those who have waited may find that the instructor of their choice is already full.

back to FAQ list 

What about the Universal Groupon rule that says Groupons must be used in one visit?

This is a multi-visit Groupon package, which overrides the general rule, so you may use the Groupon for all visits in your package.

back to FAQ list 

Are there any special discounts for me to take advantage of AFTER I've used my Groupon?

Yes!  We offer several discount packages for those who wish to continue taking lessons after the Groupon deal is finished.

back to FAQ list 

I'm already taking lessons at Lori Moran Music.  Can I buy a Groupon and use it for my future lessons?

Sorry...this offer is for new students only, but a Groupon would make a great gift for a friend or family member who has been wanting to take lessons.

back to FAQ list 

Once I start my lessons, how long do I have to finish redeeming my Groupon? Is there a time limit?

Because we have so many Groupons to redeem, we require that students complete their lessons within 30 days from the date of the first lesson (or 60 days if you purchased 4 half-hour lessons).  We recommend students commit to weekly lessons once their Groupon begins, because it's been proven that regular weekly lessons produce the best results.  We know that's not always possible, given everyone's busy schedules these days.  However, if you are NOT able to take your lessons in subsequent weeks, please talk to your instructor to develop a time frame that works for you.
