Read some testimonies from past students

“Very impressed with Raz’s teaching skills, particularly his attention to detail with each group. I felt he spent enough time with each individual section. Also, his manner was very pleasant and it felt very relaxed – despite learning some new and more complex rhythms he made it seem quite easy somehow.” Sambadoc, Pembroke
