Which is better for me - a Star* class or an individual lesson?
How do I pay for lessons?
Once you are registered in our system, you can simply have your account on autopay, which will be billed on the 1st of the month.
Is there a multi-student or multi- lesson discount?
Yes! Broadway Lessons© will work you and the instructors to provide these discounts.
What are the teachers’ backgrounds? How do you hire them?
The beauty of Broadway Lessons© is that we take care of everything. We pre-screen all applicants to evaluate their professional background and teaching experience, plus we conduct criminal background checks. All of our teachers have performed or worked in a Broadway or professional theatre setting. We take great pride in providing a top quality, safe experience for all of our students. For the beginners, we have hired a specific staff perfect for working with those who want to learn the basics before connecting to a Broadway professional.
Will there be a recital and where will it be?
Our recitals will be the experience of a lifetime. Once a year we will invite you and your teacher to perform live in New York City. This will be a red carpet affair that will have students perform their craft on stage with their Broadway Star teacher.
In the event that a live performance can not be arranged, accommodations will be made for a virtual recital.
What is the age range of the students?
That is a great question. Most teachers request that their students be at least five or six years old. If a student is younger than that, we can arrange a trial lesson just to make sure the child is ready for lessons Also, you are never too old to take lessons. We currently have students well into their 80’s.
What if I need to reschedule my lesson or can’t make a lesson?
That is not a problem. Broadway Lessons will take care of all your scheduling needs. All we need is a 24 hour notice so we can schedule a make up lesson. Our teachers are independent contractors and receive their schedules the night before. Because of this, we can not offer make-up lessons after we send their schedules. Those lessons will be forfeited. If you cannot make a Star* class, we can not offer a make-up lesson.
Why are the prices different for each teacher?
Depending on the teacher’s experience, Broadway Lessons works with teachers to determine a fair lesson rate for our students. This is another great reason to take lessons through us because we will handle all the negotiations for you.
What are virtual lessons?
Broadway Lessons works with the teachers to determine a fair lesson rate based upon their experience.
A virtual lesson is having a music lesson in the comfort of your house. The day before your set lesson’s time your dedicated staff member will send you an email inviting you to your lesson. Lessons will take place on Zoom or if need be on Google Hangout. It will be like the teacher is sitting right next to you. Lessons can come with weekly homework or projects dependent on the teacher and type of lesson or class.
