Students in our studio have a year-long lesson commitment. The school year of lessons are divided into three sessions. Each student has a private lesson once a week and group class twice a month. Lessons are taught in Kirkwood (Atlanta) on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Lessons are also given to Waldorf Students at the Waldorf School on Thursdays.
