Dear potential bridge student,
forty years at the bridge table I still feel a rush of excitement each
time I pick up a hand. I can't help wondering what new adventure awaits
I am Jeff Bayone.
I love this beautiful game. I also love teaching it. At my club we teach bridge like it should be taught.
We never forget, first and foremost......It's a game!
begin by playing "War", a game you probably played as a child. Step by
step we build on that until midway through the first session you
find yourself playing bridge. By the end of that first session you will
have a basic understanding of how tricks are won and lost and you'll be
starting to bid and play without having memorized a thing!
the six lessons and two practice sessions I can't promise that you
will be a great player (sorry), but you will have an insight into what
it takes to become one. And hopefully we will have passed on to
you our love of this remarkable, exciting game.
Small, small, small classes.
or five students to a teacher. No one comes close to that
ratio. In fact, because bridge requires four players, that's about
as close to private lessons as you can get.
Also included are two supervised practice sessions which we hold several times a week. These group sessions are where you'll get to meet other players like yourself who are just starting out. You'll
get to play for two hours, practice what you've learned, and get
additional instruction. Each hand you play is carefully prepared to
highlight principals taught in those first six lessons.
This combination of semi-private and group lessons works.
have an outstanding track record. A high percentage of our students go
on to become players. Each week hundreds of our students play in one or
more of our practice sessions and/or novice games. In
the past thirty some-odd years our club has probably created
more bridge players than any other club in the country. The classes are
fun and the instruction is first rate.
This I guarantee....No one else in the city will do as good a job of getting you started as we do. No one.

Our complete beginner's program, designed to have you playing in either our club practice sessions
or on your own with family and friends, includes the following:
Six two-hour semi-private lessons.
