Please Note: Make ups for missed classes is not guaranteed, though any open spots are available for those who need them.

The small class size offers exceptional one-to-one instruction on exactly what you want to learn.

Students are encouraged to listen in, ask questions, and offer feedback on all instructions.

We share all knowledge exchanged within the group.

With four students working on individual projects and sharing information, it’s like having four workshops in one.
