To get the most from your free trial class you need a device with a camera and microphone. Your smartphone will do, but the larger the screen you have, the better the experience will be, so if you have access to a laptop or tablet, we recommend that.

You will also benefit from improved audio by using a headset or headphones with a microphone. If you have any questions, we would be happy to help.

The classes that are given through the internet are very entertaining and effective."

"I can highly recommend this school to everyone! They have good prices for what they do and offer a variety of different classes, and they are very friendly."
