The intimate class of ten pupils — which will cost $750 per student and is by application — will meet for three hours every Monday at 6 PM. According to press notes, the participants "will learn from a different Broadway diva each week, covering various musical topics: song interpretation, ballads, up-tempos, audition material, and comic songs, among many others."
