I liked it very much, for many things.
I liked it very much, for many things. Videos are fine, well done, practical to use in iPad, with a proper duration to be useful in one/one and a half sessions of practice, which is my case, as an amateur pianist. Content is very interesting, speech clear and well delivered. Written material and audio support for it is also fine and full of precious information. Congratulations for the great work.

Definitive Piano Improvisation Course
In just looking at the first videos, I have gained so much information on improvisational skills. Ms. Yoke Yong thoroughly explains all video material in a concise way. There is so much instructional information in this course; and I am looking forward to viewing and learning more from the videos about improvisation. Ms. Yoke Wong makes it easy to understand and applicable to piano playing. After finishing this course, I believe that it will take my piano playing to a whole new level.

My world on the piano has opened.
Since I have started to listen to Yoke Wong course "Definitive piano Improvisation" I can tell that my world on the piano has opened. I used to be very dependent on the music sheet, and would never play without it. I could play advanced enough pieces, but dont ask me to play "Happy Birthday". Since I have started Yoke Wong courses, I feel like the playing of piano has become demystified. I have been able to arranged a few songs, find the chords and make it sound nice, thanks to the tips Yoke Wong is giving. It feel so comfortable playing, because I know what I'm doing and my eyes are on the keyboard only. And this is a great pleasure to be able to play the songs I like.

I would like to add that Yoke Wong explanations are always concised and to the point. It is often as the "Egg of Columbus", which refers to a "brilliant idea or discovery that seems simple or easy after the fact" (quote from Wikipedia). Sometimes she review basics, but shortly, and she comes to her point right away. She speaks clearly and tell only what is needed - one can already watch clips on YouTube just to get an idea.

In conclusion, if I happen to be somewhere where is a piano, I can play, I do not need a music sheet neither feel embarassed because I cannot play without music sheet. In one sentence, I feel now a kind of freedom while playing piano, and this happened since I have listen to Yoke Wong "Definitive piano Improvisation".

It makes it a pleasure to play each lesson
I am absolutely impressed with the Definitive course material that you have sent me. I have made huge steps forward with the first 11 lessons and the great thing is I improving with very little effort. Advancement is so subtle it makes it a pleasure to play each lesson one after the other with many pauses in between. Being a Tae Kwon-Do Instructor I am of the belief that one must "eat an elephant one bite at a time" to succeed at tasks.
