F.A.Q.

How do I register for classes?

Simply fill out the Get Started form and Broadway Lessons© will then take care of placing you with a great teacher who is perfect for your needs. If you are interested in a specific teacher, please let us know. We will arrange your lessons. We will work with your schedule and the teacher’s schedule to arrange the perfect time. Upon inquiry we will send a personalized packet with all of the information you will need based on your interests and needs.

Which is better for me - a Star* class or an individual lesson?

Our one-on-one lessons are 100% customized to meet your goals and are a great way to accelerate your progress. Taking Star* classes are a great way to learn from Broadway’s finest. These lessons follow more of a classroom style setting with multiple students, but you still get individual attention.

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 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 belike 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.
