TakeLessons, a San Diego, CA-based online music lessons marketplace, raised $4m in Series A funding.
The round was led by Triangle Peak Partners, with participation from Siemer Ventures, Tim Kendall, and current backers Crosslink Capital and SoftTech VC.
The company intends to use the capital to expand its marketplace into new verticals such as tutoring and performing arts.
Founded in 2006 and led by CEO Steven Cox, TakeLessons connects certified instructors and students in thousands of cities across the US (see here how it works). It also offers music programs for schools and community centers, as well as at-work lessons programs for corporate clients and their employees.
