Learn Music From Anywhere

No matter where in the world you live, you can receive music instruction from the Glencoe Academy of Music.

Why take lessons from us? Our faculty are professional musicians that have Bachelor and Masters degrees in their field of study from accredited institutions such as The Juilliard School of Music, Manhattan School of Music, Eastman School of Music, Berklee, to name a few.

Each instructor has been hand picked by the Executive Director Carlos Bendfeldt, who holds a masters degree from The Juilliard School. Our instructors are aware that everybody learns at their own pace, therefor having patience is a quality found in all of our instructors. Let us begin your musical training, or take you to the next performing level via Skype. Please contact us to get started.

System Requirements

  • Computer + High-Speed Internet Access - You’ll get a smoother picture, better audio, and fewer dropped calls if your home Internet connection is high-speed.
  • A Webcam - Most laptops and netbooks come equipped with webcams now, but if you don’t have one, they’re available at Staples, Wal-Mart, or online, starting around $30. Click here to browse some webcams.
  • Skype - Skype is free to download, install, and use. Just head over to the Skype website, click on “Get Skype,” choose your operating system (PC, Mac, or Linux), download and install it.Once it’s installed, you’ll start it up, create an online login using your email account, test your webcam out, and you’re ready to go.Our Skype ID is GlencoeAcademyofMusic.
  • A Printer - It’s handy to have a printer available, so that if we send you a worksheet or song during your Skype guitar lesson, you can easily print it. It’s also possible to view worksheets onscreen during lessons, but I recommend printing worksheets out and keeping them in a lesson folder or binder.
