Within 2 days of buying my first pan I came across your website. Within 3 days of buying my first pan I had improved immensely thanks to your tutorials! Within a couple of hours I was feeling confident enough to try putting together some sequences of my own. I can’t wait to move on to the second and third tutorials.
