I submitted my Performer Request Form.  How will I know if/when I will be coached by Tom?

  • When you request to work in class on a given Saturday - plan to be signed onto the meeting no later than noon EST and remain the entire time.  We call on performers through out the day, but, as this is an organic process and the length of time we spend on each piece will vary, it's important you'e ready to go when called upon.  
  • To be considered for the current upcoming Saturday we ask that you submit your form no later than Thursday.
  • You will be emailed a confirmation that you will be getting coached by Tom
  • If for some reason we are not able to get to you, you will go up the following Saturday.

Can I pause my membership?  
This is a good option if you need a brief break, and you plan to return again soon!

Please email us at two (2) weeks prior the date you would like to pause.

If we pause your account, this means you will keep your current rate.  Our monthly rate will occasionally increase, so, by pausing rather than cancelling, you will not lose your current monthly rate.  If you choose this option please let us know if you want to pause for one or two months.

How do I cancel my membership?  
We would be bummed to see you go!  We understand though and will certainly take care of this for you! 

Please email us at two (2) weeks prior the date you would like to cancel. 

Please know that if you decide you would like to return, you'll be signing up at that new rate. To do this, just go to the "Saturday Workshop" page on our website (here) and scroll down to "Join the Membership" to sign up again.
