Perfect course tailored to individual skill levels and needs. A very patient and well informed tutor with many tips, suggestions and techniques to try when things get in a tangle! The zoom experience is intense and strangely exhausting though since the technololgy adds another layer of things to concentate on so multi-tasking energies are running high. Would thoroughly recommend.
