I enjoyed this class. Very easy to follow. Improvements for future classes. Better sound quality and playing note sounds as you teach them. (I played along in my DAW which will help with ear training as well.)

Good job. Will revisit this class often to refresh myself with the knowledge.
Easy to follow. Audio recordings for the video are not the clearest but it works.
