Here's what customers are saying:
"I found the fingerings, registration ideas, and general comments to be excellent" - Robert
"I have found your download very helpful! It was really excellent! I have watched some of your teaching videos, and when I read your instructions, I try to imagine you are there teaching me! You may feel disappointed that I am ~2-3 days behind, but I am a slow learner, and I have committed to taking the time to get it right as you say. But the other night my wife commented that she had never heard me play such a detailed melody in the left hand so well! (my left hand is generally poor!)" - John
"Dear Vidas. I just got through learning your practice score of Benedicamus from Tabulatura Nova, by Scheidt. I used your practice schedule and it is an excellent approch to learning any composition. I like all the performance practice information you include in this score. Best wishes." - Frank
