You may choose 1 class point for each day you’re attending the course. With up to seven class points included in the whole course
fee, time is given for preparation, reflection and observation of other classes. There will also be the opportunity to take part in evening

According to tutor availability, extra classes may be requested at an additional £35 per class (£25 for students). To reserve these classes
in advance, please mark them with an ‘E’ below or you can request extra classes once the course has started.
Applications for advanced classes (marked (#)) must be supported by a recording and/or teacher’s reference if not known to the
