FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Can I disturb your planned program with many questions?

Yes off course. The course includes support via email 24/7 so I can answer all your questions.


What happens if I have to study a lesson in one week and I am not able to do it on time?

If you take individual lessons, you can schedule your next lesson whenever you want. 
If you take the intensive seminars (3 months), you will have all the material in PDF so you can keep practicing after the seminar has finished.

I don´t speak either english or spanish very well, can you speak very slowly?

English is my second language too… so we´ll both need to speak slowly and clear. 


How many lessons we will need to get together on video skype?

In the SKYPE Edition you will have a lesson every week, with 45 minutes online dedicated to you. 
In the seminars, there is also a SKYPE meeting for questions and answers, once or twice a month, depending upon your needs.

What does it mean “Optional: Skype account”? Does it work without a Skype account too?

Yes. If you take the seminars, SKYPE is optional. In the VIDEO LESSONS (one-on-one) you need to use SKYPE. 


Can I get after the 12 lessons all the PDF’s and music sheets to keep practicing by myself?

Yes. As I mentioned earlier, when you sign up for an INTENSIVE 3 MONTHS seminar, you will receive material (PDF, eBooks, Audio, etc) so you can keep practicing even after the seminar has been completed.
