I’m very happy to announce LessonUp has won Austin Family Magazine’s 2012 Reader’s Poll for Favorite Place to Learn Music. We are now officially an Austin Family Mag Favorite!
Since it’s a reader’s poll, we literally couldn’t have done it without all of you, our loyal students. So thank you to all the students/parents who voted for us. For an organization that is just about to have its first birthday, this is a great honor.
And we aren’t resting. We have big plans to improve music education. Many of these plans will start to come to fruition by the end of the year, so stay tuned! Thank you again to everyone!
