The Seattle area is home to professionals in a multitude of disciplines offering their expertise to those looking for opportunities to learn. The area has world-class glass blowers and graphic artists, classically trained dancers and chefs schooled at Le Cordon Bleu. This region is so diverse, you can surf behind a tugboat in the morning and attend a digital marketing bootcamp in the evening; the possibilities are endless.

Sound Publishing is committed to supporting growing businesses that are making a difference in the community through avenues such as education. The company’s new partnership with Connect2Classes is a natural fit because the online class marketplace empowers learners to enrich their skills for personal and career growth.

Sound newspaper websites now include a link to Connect2Classes so that students of all ages can find and register for classes on one easy-to-use platform.

Find the link in the dropdown menu on the top left side of the Valley Record website, and other Sound Publishing titles. Watch for stories about new and exciting classes, workshops and bootcamps in these newspapers in the upcoming months.

“Connect2Classes is a community-minded start-up, focused on education,” said Gloria Fletcher, President of Sound Publishing. “With the strength of our community media outlets we can widen the reach to connect learners with a broad network of trusted class providers.”

Digital marketing, UX design, woodworking, wine tasting and barista training are among the most popular on Connect2Classes. Whether you are looking to upgrade your career skills, follow a passion to learn something new or have an evening out with a partner or friend, there is a class to suit your objectives.

“I love taking classes. When I look through the class listings I get completely sidetracked and picture myself in French cooking classes, or dream about learning to sail,” adds Dallas Jasper, CEO of Connect2Classes. “I hope visitors to the site find what they need, and get sidetracked into something they will love!”
