A marketplace that connects music students and music teachers all over the country, Taylor Robinson Music provides music lessons in-studio (with locations nationwide) or from the comfort of your own home (in the form of mobile, in-home lessons or webcam lessons).

The company provides instruction for most any instrument, including guitar, bass, keyboards, vocals, drums and more. Instructors are all professional performing musicians, recording artists and songwriters with a unique musical background and priceless experience to pass down.

In 2014, Robinson pitched his business to the Sharks on ABC’s “Shark Tank,” asking for $100,000 in exchange for 10 percent equity.

While he didn’t walk away from the show with any funding, the show provided several indirect takeaways that boosted his business in terms of brand awareness and credibility.
