Interview with ArtistWorks Founders

online learning at artistworksEd Turner of Seniors Web Radio has published an interview with David and Patricia Butler about our interactive online learning model here at ArtistWorks. Ed asks how the idea of ArtistWorks all came about, which David explains with his own story of wanting to develop a better way for learning guitar. Remember what they say about necesity being the mother of invention? It's true. 

 
"I started thinking about my background at AOL and the idea of creating online communities. I wondered if we could create an online community of guitar students like me, and we could hire a mentor to help us all collectively learn how to play jazz guitar - that was the seed of the idea. The idea would be that each of these guitarists would chip in a little bit of money each month, and we would basically retain this teacher as our 'guitar guru' and we would learn together. And we would see what he taught us, but also what he taught other people.  
 
From that we developed the idea of ArtistWorks, where we have a leader of a community (a teacher, a great instructor, in the case of music a virtuoso musician), who is there and people join by subscribing (that's how we pay this person), and we all learn by submitting our videos for evaluation to the teacher. And then we get to see the evaluation from what we submitted. But the most important thing, is that we can also see the exchanges between the other students and the teacher." - David Butler, CEO of ArtistWorks
