REASON FOR STUDYING
“When you have a method and it’s effective at beginner level, and the same method evolves so it’s still effective and enjoyable at advanced levels – that’s really useful. That’s really good for everyone because the teacher can really concentrate on the most important thing – the students.”
R. Scott, teacher
