Monday, December 19, 2016 - Reverb.com - the online marketplace for buying, selling, and learning about music gear - this month announced that all employees will receive free music lessons as a holiday bonus. Through Reverb Lessons - Reverb’s online marketplace for music lessons - employees will have the opportunity to choose from online or in-person lessons in guitar, violin, piano, voice, songwriting, audio production, and everything in between.
“From critical thinking, creativity, and confidence to patience and teamwork, the benefits of playing music have been proven by study after study over the years. We believe that we can improve the world around us by creating more musicians and, as a result, more music - and that starts with our team members,” said David Kalt, CEO and founder of Reverb.com. “Even if you don’t have previous music-making experience, it’s never too late to learn how to play an instrument, write your own songs, or mix tracks.”
Of Reverb.com’s more than 120 employees, nearly 85 percent are musicians. According to Kalt, these free lessons will enable team members to improve upon current abilities or learn an entirely new skill. Aside from the personal and professional benefits to employees, the free lessons will also encourage employees to spend time on the Reverb Lessons platform.
“We’re literally putting employees into the shoes of our customers,” said Reverb Lessons President Jason Hunt. “I’m excited to hear what team members love about the platform as well as what services, tools, or technology we can implement to make the experience even better.”
Reverb.com launched Reverb Lessons in 2015 with the mission to make it easy for aspiring musicians to connect with experienced instructors for in-person or online lessons.
