Every student is different, and therefore learn at different rates. We recommend scheduling a single-session lesson first, so our instructor can assess and evaluate your child. At the end of the lesson, our instructor will fill out an evaluation form for the student. The purpose of this is to provide a sense of direction with your child’s training. From there, you can choose to book single lessons (a la carte), or upgrade into one of our package programs.
