One On One Lesson

Broadway School of Music & the Arts has a 40-year commitment to providing one-on-one instrument and voice lessons to people of all ages. We remain steadfast in our belief that the mentoring and instruction that takes place during one-on-one lessons not only advances the student’s musical ability, but confidence, creativity and social- emotional skills.

Weekly 30-minute lessons are open to a wide range of ages and ability levels from beginner to advanced. A typical lesson involves a warm-up, review of past concepts and music, and learning new material. Enhanced lessons of 45 or 60 minutes may include additional instruction in music theory, composition or arranging depending on student interest. On occasion, depending on student enrollment and interest, we offer other classes such as group Suzuki strings to give students a chance to experience playing together.

There are two 18-week sessions (Fall and Spring) and a 6-week summer session. Students may enroll for lessons at any time from September through July. Scheduling is based on studio room availability and the instructor’s schedule. Generally, lessons are on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays in the mid to late afternoon or early evening. The student is generally expected to keep the same weekly lesson time slot for the whole session. Tuition is prorated depending upon the number of weeks remaining in the session at the time of registration.

We returned to in-person lessons for the 2021-2022 school year. We will continue to evaluate the safety of in-person lessons based on the most current guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Cuyahoga County Board of Health. All of our wonderful instructors have the ability to offer weekly lessons remotely, using a variety of online platforms that vary by instructor. Remote lessons may be flexibly offered on Wednesdays or Fridays as well, depending on the instructor’s schedule. Please call us at 216-641-0630 or email for more information.

Students are strongly encouraged to participate in the recitals that are scheduled throughout the year. Students work with their instructor to select a pieces or pieces to perform and the instructor coaches on performance skills and etiquette. We believe that performing for others is integral to becoming a musician. Learn More

Instruction is offered to children through adults in Classical, Popular, Jazz, Spirituals or Gospel styles, among others, in an exciting array of instruments: The exact starting age of children depends on the instrument and teacher. Instruments include: Cello Clarinet Cornet Drum Set Electric Keyboard Flute French Horn Guitar Marimba Organ Piano Recorder Saxophone Snare Drum Trombone Trumpet Tuba Viola Violin (Suzuki Method) (*Age 3 1/2 and up) Suzuki Violin (Ages 3 ½ & up) The Suzuki philosophy emphasizes learning through listening, imitation, repetition, games, and practice—with the teacher, parent, and student working as a team. The parent participates in the lesson and guides home practice. Listening daily to recordings of the music the children will play is an essential part of the method. Voice (Ages 10 – Adult) Develop vocal technical skills of breath control, tone production, rhythmic control, phrasing, stylistic interpretation and sight reading. Students also learn proper singing posture, music theory and diction. In the second year, singing in a foreign language (Italian, Spanish or Latin) may be introduced. One year of piano prior to starting voice lessons is recommended, but not required. For younger students, a trial lesson may be requested to evaluate student’s readiness.
