Frequently Asked Questions

How much do lessons costs?

See contact and costs.

How long do lessons last?

The introductory lesson lasts for an hour, thereafter lessons last for half an hour.

How many lessons will I need?

This is very hard to answer without discussing a pupil’s individual aims. It varies from pupil to pupil according to what each person is looking to achieve, where they are starting from as well as their own abilities and commitments. It is best discussed with a teacher at one of our no obligation free consultations.

How often will I need a lesson?

This very much depends on each pupil’s learning style and what they want to achieve. The only recommendation that we make is that initially lessons for the first few weeks are taken on a weekly basis. Thereafter teacher and pupil decide together what frequency is right for the pupil.

Do I remain fully clothed?

Yes, you may be asked to remove your shoes otherwise you remain fully clothed. It is advisable to wear loose comfortable clothing.
