Can I request a specific Instructor?
Private Lessons & Semi Private Lessons: Yes, if that instructor is available we will assign them to you.

Group Lessons : No, unfortunately we are unable to accommodate instructor requests for group lessons. However generally the same instructor teaches the same class levels each session.
