BANDHAPPY, the brand new and first live online and in-person music education service, has announced the launch of registration abilities as of 11am ET today (Thursday, January 5th, 2012). Lessons will begin on Monday, January 9th as students are activated into the system. The site has received thousands of requests from students seeking lessons so far, so be patient as BANDHAPPY is approving students on a rolling basis.

Teachers are still able to apply and can continue to apply at any time. Rules for application are currently on the BANDHAPPY teacher registration page. Hundreds of teachers have already signed on and are ready to teach. Teachers that have already signed on include Tosin Abasi (Animals as Leaders), Rich Redmond (Jason Aldean Band), Gil Sharone (Stolen Babies), Jeff Loomis (Nevermore), Ben Weinman (Dillinger Escape Plan), Mike Mowery (Outerloop MGMT), Chris Adler (Lamb of God), Willie Adler (Lamb of God), AJ Minette (The Human Abstract), Evan Brewer (The Faceless), Paul Waggoner (Between the Buried and Me), Rody Walker (Protest the Hero), Peter Wichers (Soilwork), Louis Cato (Marcus Miller Band), Spencer Sotelo (Periphery), and more.

There are two new tutorial videos available now on YouTube, one for teachers and one for students. The videos assist in walking new students and teachers through the registration process, as well as other important individual points like setting up a lesson, creating your profile, etc. You can view the teacher and student tutorials below. New features will be announced soon.

Founded by Periphery drummer Matt Halpern, BANDHAPPY will reshape how music teachers and students connect in a first-of-its-kind music community. BANDHAPPY will offer either in-person lessons or online lessons anywhere on the planet via a custom-built, in-house video chat system.

BANDHAPPY offers access to one-on-one lessons – in person or online -- with the teacher of your choice, chosen from an impressive roster of professionals in every possible genre. BANDHAPPY is not specifically focused on just instrument lessons either; lessons will also include all areas of music business and production, as well. Anyone can apply to teach or take lessons with BANDHAPPY.

Musicians can use BANDHAPPY for instant access to a readily available pool of potential students, so they can teach whatever they want, whenever they want, wherever they want. BANDHAPPY makes it easy for musicians to manage their teaching schedules effortlessly, while still doing what they love to do and earn income even when they’re out on the road. The touring musicians who created BANDHAPPY have made the entire process hassle-free for both students and teachers. Everything from scheduling to payment is handled seamlessly in one place on the site.
