How many Students are in your training?
We strive to keep our teacher trainings small so students get plenty of individual, hands-on attention, guidance and instruction from our staff.  A typical class has 7 students enrolled.  

What happens if I miss a day or a weekend?
You are strongly encouraged to attend all sessions.  But we understand that life does happen and this is a significant commitment.  If you miss time in a session you will be required to make up the missed material by taking private lessons with one of the leads, this could have an additional cost.  

Do you offer payment plans or scholarships?
Many students pay in full before their training begins, but others take advantage of our payment plans.  You must be paid in full to graduate.  Currently, we do not have scholarships available for the 2019 class.  If you would like to donate to the education of a student please contact us.  We are a 501c3 Charitable organization and your donation is tax deductible.
