The course is great! I’ve been sneaking ahead to watch the videos, just had my hand surgery on Friday and it went GREAT but it’s in a cast til at least next Wed. You are such a wonderful teacher and I love this on demand format. I’m excited to dabble in DAA noter style ASAP. FYI, I took your class at Lake Junaluska a few years ago and loved it, so glad I was in your mailing list!

I really appreciated the lessons which were gently and systematically presented. I was able to use the principles in the lessons to play an old hymn tune by ear. That is a big new step for me. Thank you. Kathy F.
