"Your Sor product (Lesson No. 1) is just fabulous!
In just a few days I’ve worked my way slowly
through the first eight measures and I love it.
The music itself is beautiful, and your instruction
couldn’t be better. Your teaching technique is so
helpful as you demonstrate not only how to play
correctly but also mistakes to avoid."
