The ArtistWorks online visual education format allows virtuoso musicians to “Teach the World” by presenting their full method, technique or curriculum in HD video to subscribing students of their sites. Simple webcams are used by the students to submit videos to the Artist through the site, for critique and guidance if they want personalized instruction. The Artists can easily review student-submitted videos using the ArtistWorks Video Management System (patent pending). Regardless of whether or not students participate in exchanging videos with the Artist, these “video-exchanges” are posted for all subscribing students to learn from. This groundbreaking use of video-exchange for the instruction of musical instruments has been implemented at Jimmy Bruno Guitar Institute, the Qbert Skratch University, Andreas Oberg Guitar Universe, Peery Piano Online, Tony Trischka School of Banjo, Howard Levy Harmonica School, and the new Martin Taylor Guitar Academy.
