The skills learned in each class can be rehearsed with an adult at home (or friends).
Students may receive written feedback from the instructor upon request at any point. Helpful and constructive verbal feedback will be given after each exercise.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
