General Class Information

Classes can be formed at any time.  A minimum of 8 students per class allows me to teach with the regular cost for each student of  $12.50 per each  2 hour lesson.   Classes of 4 students can be arranged but the cost increases to $25 per student per lesson for the smaller class.  Additional costs may be included to cover the cost of instructional materials. If you’re interested and a class is not in the schedule to fit your needs, get some friends together and form your own class.  Just call (816-237-0519) or e-mail  to set it up.

Supervised Play and classes are also available on Mondays and 1st and 3rd Wednesday. Check out Supervised Play-mini-lessons.

Playing Lessons

I am happy to provide a lesson by playing with you. For adults with fewer than 800 masterpoints, this means that I will meet with you for up to 1/2 hour before playing time to go over our convention card. I will play with you, noting the bidding sequence and leads as we play. I usually refrain from making too many comments during the actual playing time. I will then stay and go over some of the issues that occurred during the session, looking at hand records if available, for up to 1/2 hour. The cost for this playing lesson service is my entry fee and $30.

For adults with 800 masterpoints or more, I am happy to play with you for free if I can fit you into my schedule!

For high school age students and younger please see my scheduled rates on the Kids Bridge page.
