All of AACM’s Classes Are Being Offered Online

The AACM has been offering group and private classes online since 2009. All classes are recorded, and the videos are available on our student portal, AACM Online.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, and while we are being asked to shelter in place, ALL of our classes are now being offered online. If you have questions about our classes, please view the class schedules for San Rafael and San Francisco, or email us at We are all working from home, so email is the best way to reach us.

Keep healthy, and stay safe!
