All Level of Students are Welcome
The average skill and experience level for students is between six months and three years experience. This is a workshop for students who want to improve. Resist thinking you are not good enough or be intimidated. If you do, you could miss out on this valuable opportunity to improve. Everyone in the class will be there to learn and be supportive of each other. What ends up happening to all students is they realize they are just like everyone else in the learning process. That becomes a great source of comfort and encouragement in of itself. If you have concerns on either end of the skill perspective, please call Ross at 1-866-322-6567.
