    The Scales Essentials Course is tremendously beneficial, and I highly recommend it for any level of player who wants to dramatically improve their musicianship. Mark Smith is the BEST in the business. His teaching style is very professional and thorough. He doesn’t believe in gimmicks or showing off. Get this course, and you won’t regret it!
