Adult Flex Pass

A program for adult learners, the student takes lessons at their leisure, enjoying scheduling freedom. Lessons are 30 or 45 minutes, and are sold in 5 lesson or 10 lesson batches.
We extend this option to high school students, with teacher approval.

The Flex Pass is perfect for students who would like more independence of schedule and are self-starters with practice, who travel frequently, or who or do not have the time to commit to a weekly schedule. Scheduling subject to teacher approval and availability.

Buy a 5x or 10x pass, schedule your lessons at your own pace in a one year period, and buy a new punch card when you are ready!
