In these 6-day private courses, the lessons will be tailored to suit your personal skill level and will address any specific needs you have. You will be the only student in my studio for the duration of the course. You do not need to bring anything with you except the desire to learn — you will be provided with all the supplies you need.

Please send an email to if you have any questions about taking private lessons from me and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. For information on preparing for the course, transportation in Austin, and places to stay near my studio, click here.
