This competition aims to help people be more open to sharing the stories behind their passion for music, going beyond the usual sharing of talents, tricks and tracks.

Instead of the usual talent vs talent contest and random raffle drawing, Takelessons had a neat idea to incorporate inspiring stories of real people into a competition. In this way, even if you lose, you actually still "win" by opening up to your friends and social media contacts, possibly inspiring one or more to take up music.

Joining is very simple, all you have to do is submit an essay of 250 words or less on the topic, "How has music changed your life? Please describe a specific example and share what music means to you." It is then up to you to share your story to as many friends as possible to improve your chances of getting votes.

The company says, "A vote is calculated when an individual clicks on the heart shaped vote icon at the top or bottom of a participant’s essay. Each person may only vote for an essay once. TakeLessons may disqualify any entry at our sole discretion and without notice if we detect any fraudulent voting activity."

The more personal and convincing your essay is, the better your chances are at taking home one of the prizes, and even better than the material prize, you might end up inspiring the next big star, or maybe rekindle the passion of a tired musician.

This contest is limited to US citizens only and they will be accepting submissions until 11:59 p.m. PST on Thursday, April 30th, 2015. The contest is divided into two phases, the first phase being the submission period which will last until the deadline of submissions. In this initial phase, allessay submissions will be published and available for the public to vote on at the Takelessons.com website.

The first phase will end with the top 10 entries moving forward to the finalist round, they are chosen based on the number of votes that their essay received during the first phase. The successful finalist essays are then going to be reviewed by TakeLessons staff, who are tasked to pick the three winners from the top 10.

TakeLessons.com is giving away three Guitar Center gift cards: $2000 for the grand prize winner, $1000 for the runner up, and $500 for the third placer. By sharing the story of how music has transformed your life, you are given the chance to inspire your friends and other people to take up an instrument and at the same time be in the running for a nice prize.
