Supporting Cast
Of course, online music lessons cannot be taught by teachers alone. The lessons have to be planned, filmed, and edited, the website has to be designed and programmed, and without marketing those willing to learn don't know that music2me even exists. Here you can see all those who make it possible for you to learn the instrument without standing in front of the camera.
Andreas is the idea generator and marketing coordinator at music2me. The common goal is to make learning musical instruments as easy as possible for people. He is a passionate guitarist and has been playing electric guitar since childhood.
