Our Mission: Bringing Personal Dreams Within Reach
Since most of us have that something we've always wanted to learn speak a language, to paint, or dance, or play an instrument. These are personal dreams we hold dear, but as time passes and life gets in the way, these dreams can sometimes slip farther and farther out of reach. Formal schooling is often out of the question for busy adults. Private lessons are pricey and inconvenient. So how do we re-kindle these dreams and make them come true? That is the mission of Legacy Learning Systems: To make difficult skills accessible through multimedia self-education courses and bring personal dreams within reach.

About Legacy Learning Systems
In a world of cheap, over-hyped, "Learn This Overnight" instructional videos, Legacy Learning Systems was founded to produce truly comprehensive multimedia training courses for those who want serious instruction in the comfort of their own homes. We believe that learning should be fun, unintimidating and systematic, with each new skill building on the previous one. Our first courses were in music instruction, but other topics related to the arts, hobbies, career, and a variety of special interests are under development.
