Andres Giraldo was an EXCELLENT teacher. He made the class fun and interesting and practical. My only request would be that the class meet earlier in the evening. 8:00-9:30 is late (although i realize there were people from the West Coast in the class).

This class was perfect for an absolute beginner. Lalo on Saturday’s at 12:15 made the class fun and something to look forward to. It was easy to participate with him and feel comfortable. After 7 weeks, I feel like I have a lot of knowledge and excited to learn more.

Kind and informative instructor. You learn a lot in each class so if you can practice during the week between classes then it is great!
