The heart and soul of pool flow from an accurate hold on the cuestick. But how to make the classic pool grip, is a thing of function and power. I know finding the proper balance between an art and a science of playing Pool, when these two elements becomes easy, one can come out proud as a pool player.

Thanks for the quick response. My daughter is 18yrs old and her name is Tammy. She is interested in Pool lesson, i don't know how to appraise such talent, but people adore her when she plays, she is not a beginner though, she has no much experience aside what learned from the Pool dvds and her dad.

I Strongly believe the more quickly one learns something, the better they will learn, because when a student learns over a shorter period of time, the experiences are more recent and vivid especially when someone intends to use the skills to make an income. So being a Pool player is one way to have a career using your knowledge of playing while some enjoy playing Pool as a hobby or sport.

We are looking at she needs it 3 times a week at 1hr per day for 4 weeks, say Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays or Saturdays, the time will depend on when will be convenient for you, as she will be free at all most evening times. She lives with my cousin in Forest Hills NY and i will prepare her after payment from her dad.

I will like to know how much the lesson would cost for the 4 weeks since her father is the one paying?
Name the check will be payable?
Mailing address?
Direct Phone#?
Cell phone#?

I look forward to hearing from you.
