The progression of the course is laid out beautifully. Being able to print out the steps of progression and then follow along with the videos is very helpful. The layout and design of the screens is easy to follow the progress of the course from beginning to end. Thank you for providing the course. The instruction was superb and the song is beautiful. You did a great job!!

Clear and lovely!

A beautiful melody with very clear explanations and videos which leads you through a series of important techniques on the autoharp. I found this so helpful - being able to watch Cathy's hand positions up close and to replay the videos was most helpful. Many thanks for making this available.

Informative, enjoyable

I very much enjoyed this mini course. I play chromatic but still found it very useful and it helped my confidence. A beautiful song named after a beautiful place, it was a joy to learn it on Autoharp. Thank you. Christina Murrie

Nice tune, well presented, not for beginners!

by Carol Manahan
A beautiful tune. I watched the lessons through once before trying them. I have only finished the first two parts of the iBook lessons, so not everything was clear for me. I specially liked the pace here. The different skills were presented gradually, so you could learn step by step. I didn't know what open noting was until I watched the lessons, and only figured it out by observation. If I would have learned that in book 3 or 4, I just have to claim over eagerness, but it still might make sense to explain it in this lesson. My Autoharp is chromatic, so I will just have to wait to try that. Also, Cathy, even though most people who find this already know you, you might introduce yourself. I don't want to sound overly critical ... These are really small suggestions. I am looking forward to actually learning to play the tune.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was presented in a very understandable manner. It was also very educational as it progressed in a manageable learning curve. Thank you for teaching us this beautiful song and for allowing us to learn it at our own pace.

This course was wonderful

I bought your Udemy course and did not know that it was gone. I only watched it and did not have my autoharp to play at the time. Your Udemy course was great of course, but I love this one even more! The camera set up is better seems like I am sitting right next to you. This is the best lesson I have ever seen! You broke it down so well also! Thank you so much!

forres cradle song - titles were good

by Paula Brawdy
Excellent teaching! clear and loved it... my internet is a little slow loading it... and they only technical difficulty I had was getting the bar to show up to drag it back and relisten to it.. once in a while I could get the loading bar to come up and drag is back while it was loading, but most of the time I couldn't get it to appear.. hope that makes sense!

A Great Course Even Better in Thinkific

by David Marc Tan Creti
Hi Cathy, Thank you for your innovative work. Audio visual courses with downloadable pdf files is so much better now for most people compared to selling a printed book. Hopefully the companies leave some profit for the teacher. I tested the course on linux with a chrome browser and on an android samsung tablet. Both worked well. Best Wishes David Marc Tan Creti
