The student can attend any of the 12 open class hours a week, and they can attend as many as they would like. You book your times right through our app! See class times.

 

The student is able to learn at their own pace while also having the opportunity to work on their individual skills in a group setting. The teacher provides individual instruction to each student and also provides time for them to practice while they help the other students.
