What do our students say?
Dean is an excellent teacher. Very methodical in defining a lesson plan and executing it. Has a great manner and it helps that he’s a killer player in his own right. Highly recommended!
How long do the courses run and how long does each class go for?
Each course is made up of multiple terms that dive deeper into the course topic, each term is 6 weeks long. How many terms you take depends on how much you want to learn and improve. Classes are an hour long and run once a week.
How big are the class sizes and will I have to play in front of everyone?
Depending on the enrolment of each course, class sizes can differ. That being said, they usually average out to anywhere between 6 – 8 people in size. You won’t be expected to play in front of everyone. We’ll play as a group when learning something new and you’ll play to me during one on one time when refining something. You won’t be expected to stand up and play in front of everyone.
Will I be able to ask questions and receive help during a class?
Yes, there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification regarding course material and information. There will also be plenty of opportunity for one on one guidance through out each class. Obviously it’s a class and not a private lesson so you’ll be expected to share class time with other students. But considering you’ll all be working on the same material – they’ll likely have the same questions as you anyway.
Where will the courses be held?
Courses are usually held in class spaces in Melbourne’s northern suburbs or inner city, though they can also be hosted closer to Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, western suburbs or bayside area. If you’re interested in taking a course, contact me today to find out where the next course could be running.
