The first lesson is always FREE! Chetan is open to meeting all potential new students and doesn't deny students at any level. The chemistry just has to fit both the student and the teacher, thus the free first lesson. Also, he believes students should take lesson AT HOME in their own environment to feel most comfortable when learning and practicing.
