Progression to more advance practice in the class and/or your own practice
For those who want more out of the class you will have the opportunity to apply more advance techniques that we learn in some classes to all your classes. It’s best to let me know if you want to work in a more advanced way, that will ensure I give you some extra pointers although it is always good to have students come to me to discuss as and when they would like to progress.
