Class Descriptions

Age ranges are listed next to many of the classes. This indicates the age that a student may start studying that particular genre. For all of our beginning level classes, the student must meet the minimum age by the first week of class. A majority of our classes are skill based. Students are placed in various levels of classes depending on ability. It is very important to us that our classes are both challenging and fun.
