With regard to observation, we suggest that the majority of your 40 hours should be observing a Polestar teacher. We are mindful that for students living far away, finding access to a Polestar teacher for observation is not always easy, which is why we do allow some of these hours to be with a non-Polestar teacher.
However the point of observation is to hear the teacher giving appropriate cueing, which will not necessarily be the same with non-Polestar teachers. It is possible to observe teachers at our London studio . This needs to be booked in advance with reception and there is no charge to students.
We also suggest students attend our Friday & Saturday Club classes and use these classes as either self-practise or observation hours.
