Online PR News – 13-October-2011 – – It's that time of the year - the American Music Awards nominations have been released, and the polls are open. The awards, as determined by online voting by fans, are a great way to see whose hard work - both musical talent and star power - is impacting listeners the most.
Many stars these days have humble beginnings, and more often than not, private music lessons are involved. TakeLessons, the nation's fastest growing music lesson provider, hopes to prove that private lessons are an integral way to jump start one's career, and get hopefuls in line to win an American Music Award themselves at one point.
