    I was very impressed by the class I attended on Sunday Feb 5 and felt that you have an excellent grasp of your material and a good lead hand on your kids who as a group, are not easy to teach. Your easy going and inclusive style makes everyone comfortable and this is all complimented by you and Tristan knowing what you’re both doing. Way to go guys.
