“We were so proud to host a Broadway Connection teacher of such caliber at our studio!” - A. Veit

We had such a wonderful time with Jakob Karr.  He is a fantastic teacher.  He knows just how to pull the best out of all that attended the class.  He is innovative, charismatic and inspiring.  We felt very honored to have him as our Broadway Connection Master Teacher!
