- Ages are a guide only. As all songs include multiple difficulty levels, there is some overlap of which classes can be suitable for a student.
- Students do as many or as few terms at each level as they need to become secure in the skills and knowledge for that level.
- Students who practice regularly progress through the levels faster.
