Courses differ from our regular drop-in classes in that one signs up for courses in advance and maintains the same teacher and classmates for the duration of the course. This system allows a relationship to develop between the teacher and students, and among the students themselves. The class follows a natural progression as the students become more adept at what they are studying. Courses also cover the theoretical aspects that sit behind the practice. Our courses are as follows:
