TakeLessons Expands Beyond Music, Opens For Any Private Instructors

San Diego-based TakeLessons, which has been operating an online marketplace to connect students with music instructors, has made a major expansion this week, saying that it will now make its tools available to any private instructor, in any field. The site now offers up connections to tutors, ballet teachers, and instructors in many other fields. TakeLessons said its tools now let anyone who manages a roster of students to handle scheduling, billing, and lesson management. The move is a big expansion for the company, which had been entirely focused on connecting students with music teachers, for both in-person and online lessons. TakeLessons is led by Steven Cox.
