    As always, Steve has done a wonderful job in laying out this course in an easy to understand way. The exercises presented are very helpful in improving my ability to play accurately, and the presentation of the Bii scale is well done, clear, and offers a lot of insight. The improvisation exercise is very fun, and even though it’s based around some simple concepts, and I’m not very advanced yet, the ability to make musical lines all within the presented scale is very satisfying. Granted, I have a lot of musical experience in my past, but I believe it is presented in a way that even someone who is just beginning their musical journey will gain imense knowledge from. These courses continue to be a great help and asset, especially when one is located halfway across the globe from Mongolia. Wonderful job, Steve! Keep up the great work.
