“I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying ALL the classes that I can attend. The recordings are most helpful also. After listening more than once I hear or pick something out that I missed. I can tell I have made a little improvement in two weeks. Only two years under my belt with this instrument. That’s so amazing.  Thanks Ronnie for your hard work and AWESOME way of teaching. Keep up the good work.”
