  1. Brilliant lesson! Thanks Megan. This has really answered many of the questions that I have been mulling over for the past year. I used to learn classical, but actually didn’t touch the instrument for 20 years until one year ago when the lockdowns started. . Actually I was quite shocked that I could play anything at all when I picked it up. This site has been a godsend for me!

  2. Thanks for the video! This one has been a huge help.
