Here are some topics that may be covered in the four 90 minute long sessions in this course. This is the first time this course has been run, so there is a chance that we might not get to all of these topics. In class, if there is a specific issue that you need help with, please let the instructors know – there might be someone else in the class with the same question! We look forward to seeing you there!

The goal of this class is to introduce all of the topics in Level 2 On Line. You may need more time to practice these tasks to actually make them passable for your Level 2 On Line Audition (depending on how much you practice outside of class). You can always repeat the course if you feel as though you need more practice time on any of the topics listed. At the end of the course, if you graduate, there will be lesson times available to film your Level 2 On Line Audition. Graduation means that the instructors feel you could pass your official Level 2 On Line Audition.
