Intermediate and Advanced Workshop Testing

For those wanting to participate in our intermediate and advanced workshops from 7-8pm, you will need to pass a short test. This is to make sure that you will be able to fully participate with the class material and avoid frustration. The test is held on the first lesson of each month (the 2nd Saturday) from 6:45-7pm. If you arrive late, you will not be able to participate. All decisions are made by the instructors, and are subject to their discretion.
