The ArtistWorks’ Video Exchange™ Feedback Platform enables students to get individualized feedback from monster players. Each ArtistWorks teacher creates a comprehensive online video lesson library, and subscribing students submit practice videos to these master musician/teachers. The teachers respond to each student with personalized video feedback. Student-teacher interactions are paired together on the site as "Video Exchanges" for all students to see and learn from. ArtistWorks' online schools are social e-Learning communities where enthusiastic amateurs can "up their game" and learn to play better with help and guidance from world class players.

ArtistWorks online schools are designed for a broad range of players – casual or serious – beginner to advance. Online lessons range from rock to jazz – bluegrass to Americana – and cover guitar, bass, drums, vocals, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, Dobro, harmonica, DJing, and much more.
