MUSIC101 (www.music101.com) How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Well, if this site’s to be taken seriously, the answer is, Practice, practice, practice — on the Internet. Such is the mantra of Music101: Interactive Education, where novice and out-of-practice guitarists can take ”private lessons” and rehearse between classes.

Acoustic pros Christopher Parkening and John Tapella offer performance tips and practice techniques.
