Although our home base in Back Bay is undergoing extensive renovation, we are pleased to be able to once again offer private instruction for students willing to meet with instructors in alternate spaces.

The cost for instruction begins at $75 per 45-minute teaching unit for private instruction; the group rate varies by the number of participants. Private instruction is sold in packages of 10 teaching units, and most private instruction is arranged to use 2 units per meeting.
