Superb prodduct!
This way\s was my first purchase from this site - it the quality of this video is indicative of your standards, it will definitely not be my last. I'm an educational; psychologist who has spent most of my career in the business of training and evaluating teachers - so from both a personal and professional perspective, I have to say that Seth Apter gets an A+ on all the important variables. His easy going, direct style, personal warmth and ability to break things down into understandable units make for a wonderful presentation. Moreover he teaches and models techniques in such a way that both beginning and advanced students will find something interesting, useful and fun. It was such a welcoming and practical presentation that I uncharacteristically went right from watching to making art (typically I am a timid learner and have to mull things over....) Bravo and many thanks to all involved on this excellent product! Review by Felice (Posted on 7/3/2016)
