Drop-in Classes

Typical group classes cover several skills in a set number of weeks. Our Drop-in classes, however, are each designed to train one skill to completion.

Start with four lessons, and add in as many more as you need. Attend when you can, skip when you can't.

Group Classes

Group classes are a series of one hour lessons. When the series has concluded, it starts over, thereby allowing new students to enroll at anytime. Take classes just once to get the general idea, or repeat the series to perfect skills.
