Karl explains the logic behind the play. So, you don't need to memorize as much and can play with spontaneity. His notes are concise and easy to follow. The takelessons platform offers seamless audiovisual. It's easy to forget you're learning online.

Some connectivity issues. Of course, the landscapers with condo association decided it was a perfect time to use their leaf blowers. None of which were Karl's fault. Great guy. Great teacher. I tutor ESL to new Americans so I know a good teacher when I see one. I've signed up for next Tuesday at the same time. Thanks, Karl.
