Online courses: our offer
Our online courses are a great alternative to those on-site as they keep the same content, adapted to the digital context. This is why we consider them to be even more effective than traditional ones, so that even the most skeptical people will have to change their mind.
Why choose our online courses:
– participants can watch the demonstrations closely and observe the teacher’s gestures in detail: the shots are extremely close and taken from the best possible angles;
– the selection of the frames, which take only the gesture under study, avoiding distractions;
– the depth of the program: you can be part of all the middle phases and see with your own eyes the final result of the work that requires hours or days of commitment. It gives you the opportunity to ask questions about all the phases of the work;
– you will receive a detailed list of each material and tools used during the course;
– you will receive a detailed summary sheet of the course, including the description of all the steps and procedures shown during the video and explanatory photos from the videos.
All the material can be consulted at any time and free you from taking notes during class so that you can focus entirely on the video.
These are individual lessons rather than group lessons as those held in Italian and French.
Our applicants for English courses reside in different countries, so this makes it difficult to set up a time that would work for everyone.
The first two lessons are theoretical: the student watches the demonstrations and listens to the explanations without working. In the third lesson, the student shows the results of the exercises assigned by the teacher, who corrects him/her and clarifies any doubts.
It is forbidden to record the lessons, as they are protected by copyright and privacy.
Lesson 1: Tutorial Class (about 2/3 hours)
In the first lesson, called Tutorial Class, we list and explain all the techniques, using both theory and practical demonstration. After the payment of the course, you will receive the list of materials used by email.
For the more specific ones, you will be provided a link to purchase them from the UK. Links can be used as reference to look for the same material in your own country.
In the same email there will be PDF summary sheets of the techniques shown ready to be printed and used during the lessons. For the Tutorial Class, we would recommend you not to purchase any material or equipment as you do not work with the teacher and you can follow this Class from whenever it suits you. You only have to watch the demonstrations, listen to the explanations, check the notes and ask all the questions you might have.
At the end of the Class you will be able to buy the materials listed with more confidence to get the right ones. The duration of the first lesson is between 2 and 3 hours. The questions asked must be exclusively on the topics covered in the course purchased, no answer will be given to questions that are not relevant. These are not personalized tutoring lessons. No changes will be made to the program of the course purchased and in case of misunderstanding or violation of this clause by the student, no refund, even partial, will be due. Please also note that the student can ask questions and receive answers about the topics covered in the course, the materials listed in the list received and the summary sheets of the course only during the lesson time. Please do not contact the teacher outside Class.
Lesson 2: Reminder Class (2 hours)
The second lesson of the Reminder Class is recommended to be done after 10-15 days. It is not compulsory, if you think it’s not useful for you, you can book the option consisting of two lessons (Tutorial Class + Making Class). This lesson is a review, please remember that lessons cannot be recorded. The most important moments of each demonstration shown during the Tutorial Class are repeated and some in-depth information is provided.
You will receive answers to all your doubts and questions after the first lesson. In this lesson you still do not need any material or equipment and you do not work with the teacher, so this lesson can be followed from whenever it suits you. Those who have already started experimenting and already have the materials can take the opportunity to ask questions about the purchases made and any problems encountered. You will also be given exercises to show, in addition to your personal work, during the last lesson. The duration of the second lesson is up to 2 hours, Duration might vary due to the topics that need to be clarified and analyzed more in depth. Please note that no answer will be given by email.
Lesson 3: Making Class (1 hour)
To finish the course, you will have to take the Making Class within 2 months from the first Tutorial Class. Here you will be able to show the teacher the results of the assigned exercises, your personal work done with the techniques learned, clarify your doubts and show the work procedures to get teacher’s feedback.
This lesson should be followed in a place equipped to work.
The course ends with this lesson, please note that no answer will be given by email during and after the course.
