Reviews of Classes by HeARTistry



Great and fun experience

It was a fun beginner's lesson, skills taught were useful. I enjoyed the reaching assistance. Only felt the class was too short and progression was too fast before we got to the main part without sufficient practice. Teachers were helpful and knowledgeable and I'd attend again.


Awesome!

Very detailed and professional lesson! Enjoyed it very much :)


Informative

Class size is good if the venue can be organized in a class room seating arrangement than a boardroom style.
