Students aged 11–18 team up with professional coaches to learn at least three songs. They then perform these songs in a live concert complete with stage lights, smoke, and an energetic crowd. Instruments include the guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, saxophone, voice, and violin. Though students are encouraged to bring their own instruments, rentals are available for an additional fee.<p>
The Lesson Factory
Glass doors line two lofted floors at The Lesson Factory's headquarters, barely able to contain the harmonies held within. In training rooms throughout the facility, instructors—some with degrees as high as the graduate level—guide aspiring musicians of all ages toward their music-making goals with programs geared to individualized learning. Students choose from rock and classical instruments, learning how to form chords on a guitar, keep steady rhythms on drums, or nobly play violin on a sinking boat. Thanks to a steady schedule of blues jams for adults and recitals for kids, all budding musicians get the chance to show off their skills to an audience on a regular basis.
