One evening session per week for 5-6 weeks. Starting at 7pm.

Classes take place over Zoom with small numbers. The class uses some break out and some screen control for exercises and to change up the group learning. We show you how to export and share your work so we can listen and feed back as we go. Each session includes demo/exercises/discussion and interactive elements to help grasp the fundamentals. There are ‘Work-Ons’ in between classes to help the content bed in and we do a ‘Tech Set Up’ session in advance of the course starting to make sure you’re all set up correctly.

We review and feed back on individual progress and queries week to week. Joining in from your own home for short, productive sessions you can slip the training into your normal routine & develop new skills.
