What is MasterClass?
MasterClass is the streaming platform where anyone can learn from the world's best. Members get unlimited access to all 100+ instructors across 11 categories with their annual membership. Stream anytime, anywhere, at your own pace.
What format do the classes take?
MasterClass is an immersive learning experience. The curriculum for each MasterClass is designed by the instructor. Each class features about 20 video lessons, at an average of 10 minutes per lesson. You can learn on your own terms—in bite-size pieces or in a single binge. Cinematic visuals and close-up, hands-on demonstrations make you feel like you’re one-on-one with the instructors, while the downloadable instructor guides help reinforce your learning. In addition, many members utilize the class discussions below each video to share their thoughts, and upload and provide feedback on each other's work.
How long is each class?
Each class consists of 2-5+ hours of video content which is split up into individual lesson videos that you can watch and re-watch at any time. In addition to the lesson videos, each class has a downloadable Instructor Guide that you can use to supplement the videos and a member community that you can use to exchange feedback and discuss the lessons.
