Options for Personal Practice


The absolute best form of practice is playing.  As with any new sport or hobby, lessons alone are not enough to help you feel confident and skillful. We highly recommend your finding a group and practice outside of class at least once a week.

We also believe personal, individualized practice can be extremely valuable in helping you cement specific concepts.  We recommend the Whirlwind Bridge series of practice Workbooks as an excellent resource for flexible, topical practice.  These workbooks are available in print version on Amazon – and they are also available as an app for either iPhone or iPads.  The first app download is FREE, so there is no reason not to try out this option.  What could be better than specific personalized practice on the go!
