good to do it a second time after Covid Period
good teaching
Absolutely awesome
Taken 3 months but completed the course. Thank you Jonny for your boundless generosity and superb teaching. Life changing stuff. Practice. Practice. Practice….
Challenging and Rewarding
Well done. I appreciate the patience in teaching these principles and Im looking forward to mastering them.
Mountain of information and techniques.
Some content a bit above my level but very inspiring, just takes me a bit longer. Arthritic hands, particularly the index fingers and thumbs makes an extra challenge but that’s what them old digits need to keep moving.
Great stuff.
Jonny, really good. Sometimes you get carried away, but that is good too and fun. Looking forward to more stuff to explore.
