How much do lessons cost?

See contact and costs.

How long do lessons last?

The introductory lesson lasts for an hour, and after that, a lesson lasts for half an hour.

How many lessons will I need?

There is no single answer to this question. People vary in terms of what they need, what they are looking for and their ability to learn. The best way to answer this is to discuss with a teacher during a no-obligation free consultation.

How often will I need a lesson?

Again there is no single answer to this question. The only general recommendation is that for the first few weeks, lessons are weekly. After that, we will decide what frequency is best, considering where you want to get to, your budget and the time commitment. You can discuss this before starting lessons in a free consultation - see below. 

Do I remain fully clothed?

Yes, you remain fully clothed. It is helpful to remove your shoes and wear loose, comfortable clothing for lessons. 

How do lessons work?

See the page on how we work.
