"Linda (Linda Gillum, Instructor - Level 1 Introduction to Shurtleff) did a great job. Nice way about her and positive and healthy approach overall. Just the right balance for beginner group and range of ages, talent, etc. I think the orientation by Kurt is a great introduction and the more that people experience it the more it helps to promote the studio and have people join classes."
