Hamilton currently has a limited number of spots available for new students. Typically, prior to accepting a new student, one free session is held in which a few games are played to determine player strength and to discuss the goals of the student.

Rates for lessons vary depending upon whether they are group or individual, session length and lesson locations. To obtain more details about lessons and availability please click here to contact Robert directly.
