Joshua is a great inspiration
Josh made this lesson very fun and entertaining. He is a very gifted musician, and I love his teaching style. My interest in the lesson was to learn how to play long chordal runs with and without counter movement between left and right hands as well as play a song that can be embellished with lots of expression. I am pleased to add a beautiful classic to my repertoire that will be a pleasure to play at any time.
