Lessons with John de Pfyffer

I teach through a busy schedule of classes, workshops and private lessons. The classes are generally in the evenings at a variety of locations in Victoria, and usually run as a cumulative series of lessons. The workshops are often associated with either a dance or a practice session. Private lessons are by arrangement, either in my home studio or in an appropriate hall.

Details of times, locations and costs are circulated through my mailing list which you can sign up for at
