Customer Reviews

Poor quality sound Review by Quilty

Not very impressed.

The sound was very poor and I could not hear the comments from the instructor. The parts I did hear were good, she did clarify some of the charts for me.

Also, if I stopped in the middle of a section, I had to start at the beginning again. It would have been helpful if I could have skipped through the sections.
