Due to popular demand, we've added some additional live FDBK courses in March. Several instructors are taking "overloads" of a sixth participant, as well. There are plenty of GMT-friendly sections for international members at 1pm ET during the week and Noon-3pm on Saturdays. All sign-ups begin at 10am ET one week before the class session and you can have two Active FDBK courses at one time. If you are having difficulty registering for a FDBK session let us know here. Out of respect for your peers, if you can not attend or submit a song to a class you've signed up for, please delete it from your Active Course list to open the spot. Thank you! See View/Add Live Courses. More details in Course FAQ.
