Only ArtistWorks offers personalized Video Exchange Learning with high profile teachers. While JamPlay does have some high profile musicians,...

We believe in the therapeutic benefits of lifelong music learning. So does Billy Cobham and best-selling author and Columbia professor of neurology Dr. Oliver Sacks. Dr. Sacks' book Musicophilia explores "how music can animate people with Parkinson's disease who cannot otherwise move, give words to stroke patients who cannot otherwise speak, and calm and organize people whose memories are ravaged by Alzheimer's or amnesia."
