Jordan Xu “Just had my very first music lesson online with Dave (using Zoom). Didn’t know what to expect. It was great! The video recordings are clearer and more stable because I’m not holding my smartphone with my shaky hand. Makes it a lot easier to refer back to them during practice. Thanks for the awesome lesson Dave!”
Thank you Jordan Xu!
