Excellent Class

Martha gave very thorough and clear explanation on every stroke, she gave almost real time feedback which is very helpful when I needed to ask something during my practice time, she adjusted her way for teaching to make me better understand, and she is very generous of her time and knowledge.

It was a great time, lot of attention to the details. Martha provided all information for the successful practice, and cared about whole process. I appreciate for her time and all the things she taught and generously shared with me. It's really great class, all video, materials, explanations and reviews changed my mind and level of attention.
