br /> This is the claim of a new article for the Chicago Tribune by Louis Carlozo, who stated that a whole range of video lessons are available online free of charge.

He conceded that while video tutorials might not be the perfect alternative to physical lessons, they are "not a bad stopgap".

"Trawl YouTube and you'll soon hit on video after video of music tutorials. Name an instrument and someone has posted a lesson for it, be it the banjo, bassoon, harp or tuba," Mr Carlozo wrote.

A host of famous musicians already post music tips on YouTube, including David Ellefson, the former bass player from Megadeth.

Tutorials are also available for using music software such as Cubase, while some instrument manufacturers such as Gibson post lessons on their own websites.
