Like a well-run car lot, the Lesson Factory is great at selling the dream. Promises of mastering an instrument, performing, and being a rock star, admist the flashy stage with the lights and big screen are a great sell. However, the student's experience can be hit or miss, completely depending on the teacher. LF does not have any curriculum: it is not a school of music. The teachers are musicians who are proficient at playing their instruments, and may or may not be good teachers. The atmosphere is loud, the lessons are short, there is no standard for grading or measuring a students progress. The management is mostly concerned with the upfront sale - and that is reflected in the high turnover rate of students. All in all, the Lesson Factory is an okay place for kids to try out an instrument, but serious students find their education elsewhere.
