If a large group from 10 students books, then she will organise a master class with all the orchestra and a photo session for all students will be included (Advance to Professional Level).
All Levels are Welcome to study the BGBDC from Beginner Level
As you can figure out is a very intensive program, but don't worry if you struggle during the course, because Amora's speciality is to make sure each student achieves the highest level day by day, guiding you, but she also needs your help to make it happen.
All students who want to achieve the professional level at the end of the course, no matter their starting level, they must work hard every day, no laziness is allowed during the daily training, otherwise it will show up at the end of the course.
And if Amora doesn't see you ready for the Show Test, she will not let you present yourself in front of the public, so you can't get the Professional Level Certificate, you will only have achieved the highest level Certificate during the course. To be able to pass all exams, all students must do their daily written and practical homeworks, if you do not do them, then you will not pass the exams even if you start the course as a professional level student.
So, this course is very intensive and requires full dedication to achieve best result at the end of the course.
All students must get their own International Health Insurance for the duration of the trip, Amora Shams is not responsible of your belongings, health and security, even if she will be like a mom to you during your stay. Normally students get a 3 months International Health Insurance for about 50 euros.
