We strive to provide you with access to instructors far and wide, including instructors with busy professional careers and instructors in hard to reach places with limited resources.  To accomplish this we prioritize personal connection and content over big production. 

Instructors teach online from their homes, while on tour, sometimes even from rooftops. This means you get to connect with them as real people in the everyday course of their lives, but video, lighting, and sound quality may vary.
