Sarah says, ‘It is important you establish good technique, you must build on good foundations. It is so hard to unlearn poor technique…. People tell me about their online learning experiences from youtube. I am sure there are some good tutors on youtube but it is a minefield, you cannot guarantee that the advice being shared is qualified.’ In these courses I have carefully planned out every step for you as if I was teaching 1 – 2 – 1, I look at the problems you may be encountering, how to overcome then and what to practise.’
