“These 2 videos are above and beyond anything I’ve done before. When I visit schools or even give private lessons, I’m always frustrated because I know that person or those persons are going to need more coaching, more support to walk that path. Now I can tell them to watch these videos to hear exactly what they heard from me, with demonstrations and all, so they don’t need to lose momentum on what they’re trying to do. It’s a great relief.” Kenny Werner
