Do I have time for this?All you need is 10 mins a couple times per week to get the most out of the program! You can even listen to videos for review while cooking dinner, or going on a walk.
Do I need this if I'm already taking lessons?If you're still feeling stuck on things like intonation, key signatures, counting, and fast technique... this course is perfect for you! Many of our members are also taking private lessons. Think of it this way - if you take this course, you won't have to spend your entire lesson talking about key signatures! You can focus on PLAYING instead.
How long do I get access to the videos?An entire year!! You will also be invited to all the monthly group lessons during that time.
What if I can’t make it to the group lessons?We have regular monthly classes for you to ask questions and play for feedback. Everything is recorded for later viewing in case you're not able to attend!
