Customer feedback

glen sansom said: "I thought arriving to the course I pretty much knew everything needed. But without the 1 day of mock exams, tests and going over the material multiple times I think I may have failed. Thanks for a great online course and positive interactions on the classroom sessions. I look forward to getting my Pactor and start to play!"
