Welcome to Homespun Online



Greetings!

We'd like to personally welcome you to the new Homespun Tapes web site, which features the largest catalog of music lessons on DVDs and CDs available anywhere. Our lessons are designed for learning players at all levels, from absolute beginners (including kids) to experienced professionals -- and everyone in between.

2014 will mark the start of our 47th year of teaching people to play better! We have become known throughout the world for the high level of our production as well as for the superior quality of our instruction. Our instructors are top performing artists, experts in their field who enthusiastically share their years of experience with learning players.

We are devoted to teaching you how to make music on a wide variety of musical instruments, and have fun doing it! Our lessons are informal, easy to use, and fun -- the closest you will find to having a world-class musician teaching you personally in your living room. Each artist takes his or her music apart and shows you, in close-up detail, the techniques and musical ideas that have made them so successful.

Whether you are a "back porch picker" or have aspirations to play professionally, we have lessons for you. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our website. I'm sure you'll find many interesting and exciting items on these pages. Remember that ordering on this site is secure, and all of our products are unconditionally guaranteed against defects.

We are always interested in feedback, so if you have questions, comments, requests for future lessons, suggestions for the website, or just want to get in touch, please email us:
info@homespuntapes.com.

Jane and I, and the entire Homespun staff, look forward to hearing from you.

Musically yours,

Happy Traum 
President
