Frequently Asked Questions

If we’ve missed anything below that you would like to ask, do get in touch.

If you have already taken an individual assessment with us and would like to join a group, you do not need to take the assessment again. Please contact us so that we can provide you with a voucher to alter the price of the group booking accordingly.

If you took your assessment in person at the studio, we might need to arrange a short video call via Zoom to check that you are set up with the materials properly before your group begins.

We never cancel courses. In the rare case only 1 person is booked, then the course goes ahead with one person – it will be an individual course. 

If you can’t attend one of your classes, your teacher will show you which parts of the course materials you have missed. If you would like to take the class, you can book a 30 minute or 60 minute 121 class at a special rate (£30/30 minute, £60/60 minute) and go through the material with your teacher.

We don’t allow recording of group courses for privacy reasons. 

You can cancel any time up to 5 days before the course is due to begin for a full refund minus £15 processing fee. Cancellations within 5 days of course start date are not refundable.
