      • Matias expects that the student will practice/rehearse all the tricks that will be taught at class.
      • Some techniques might take a while to develop, and it is expected that the students will make the proper time to practice and rehearse. Failure to do this could turn into a class cancelation. 
      • Lots of practice is required in order to develop presentation skills.
      • Also lot of enthusiasm for learning new things.
      • Matias reserves the right to admission selection as well as continue teaching the student if the student shows no longer interest in learning or doesn’t practice and doesn’t work on the assignments.

      CLASS CHANGES

      • The class schedule can be changed temporarily due weather conditions or other major conflicts, or if Matias has a show at the same hour.
