Q & A

We are here to answer all the questions. Use chat bubble if you don't see yours.

What is LPM? What does LPM do?

Liberty Park Music (LPM) is an online music school. We teach music through videos and supporting materials like homework assignments and backing tracks. Currently, we offer lessons on piano, guitar, drums, and music theory. We will introduce more instruments, subjects, and services in the future to give you even more choices.

Do I need any special equipment or software to take the lessons?

All you need is a computer or a mobile device that allows web browsing. With a reasonably stable and fast internet connection, your viewing experience is optimized on your desktops, laptops, or tablets.

How often do you release new lessons?

We are constantly producing and publishing new lessons, about one new module each month, for every instrument and subject.  So you always have new materials to work on. 

Does my membership only gives me access to one course or instrument?

Your membership, regardless of of your plan, should give you access to the entire library of lessons. That means ALL lessons are available to you, across instruments, styles, levels, and subjects. For example, you can take piano and theory lessons at the same time, or if you have a good musical appetite, take our piano and drum kit lessons at the same time! It's your choice.

Can I really learn music online? What are the benefits of online music lessons?

Yes. Learning music online may seem novel to you, but if we can learn a language and other skills online, why not music? Online music lessons allow you to learn on your schedule, in the comfort of any locale of your choice, and at your own pace. You can pause when you need a moment to digest the lesson or rewind to view a particular section again. 

What types of payment do you accept?

We accept credit card payments or PayPal, powered by Stripe and PayPal for your security. We also don't save any of your credit card information in our database. 

Will I be able to change my plan or cancel?

You can upgrade or downgrade your plan at anytime. You can also cancel anytime. You can do all this on your Dashboard, or contact us at membership@libertyparkmusic.com.

How do I sign up for the free trial?

It's very easy.  We will need you to select a membership level (Balcony or Center Stage) and provide your credit card information or use PayPal.  We will NOT charge you anything for the first 30 days.  After that, you will be billed monthly.
