About ArtistWorks

In 2008, former AOL executive technologist David Butler set out to finally master jazz guitar. With no acceptable teachers in his area, he built a revolutionary online system to enable anyone to get direct feedback from a master teacher anywhere in the world. Founded by David and former financial executive Patricia Butler, ArtistWorks, Inc. is the leader in a new generation of online learning platforms. This patented Video Exchange® Learning platform enables world-renowned artists and musicians to “teach the world” by presenting their artistic legacy in the form of HD video lessons and direct feedback to subscribing students - creating an innovative, two-way online learning experience.

About Video Exchange

Each school is built around a massive core lesson library that guides members from the fundamentals to advanced techniques. Whenever members have a question, ArtistWorks’ patented Video Exchange Learning® technology allows members to submit practice videos and get personalized video responses from their expert mentor. Each video interaction between instructor and student is paired together on the site and made available for all members to learn from. These Video Exchanges form the basis of an ever growing, ever changing online learning experience that mimics a real classroom and provides the most convenient and effective way to learn online.
