Great Rob!! Takes me back to the good old Friday Live Show days. I love the story of Emma, where you gave a lot of detail I didn’t know from your book and show. You’ve mentioned John a couple of times too, and I know exactly the kind of studentw you mean. He seems to be getting on great, especially if he’s nailed a Bm barre chord. Very inspiring, thank you very much. Your whole outlook and method resonates with me so much The videos are really well done too.

Hey Rob. Great work on these videos. I’m going to try to get some friends of mine to play along with students at our next performance. Something simple like maybe a bass and/or guitar player to join the piano students.
