Our Teachers:

If they are teaching at Devotion, they know what they are doing. We pick our instructors based on their extensive creative and technical experience. We realize that not everyone with skill and talent is also a good teacher, so we also place great emphasis on quality of instruction. Each instructor works with Devotion's Educational Director to consistently hone their teaching game.
