What they say

Hey folks, I also tried it out, although at first the idea to sit there on my own in front of a computer seemed a little crazy to me. Learning from Louis Cesar through Skype is definitively an innovative idea, however. Now, all of us can reach him... No matter whether we live off the beaten path (the other side of the globe)... Or whether we simply cannot afford to travel to Workshops in Zurich and so on. Obviously, the experience is not the same as shaking his hand in person or seeing him play live. But for all of us who have an urgent question to solve, I cannot think of a more experienced teacher than him. What a cool idea! Keep it up, Louis Cesar. You are a star.

When I watched the Kakilambe Intro "Nice and Easy" on Youtube, I was at the same time fascinated and puzzled. So I booked a Skype lesson with Louis Cesar Ewande to ask for the ‚secret'… Louis not only explained how the Solo ‚works', but also he showed different strategies to learn to play with a similar logic. Even though the connection in my repetition room wasn't very stable, Louis' comments on my playing were - like in analog settings - highly precise and very helpful. I highly recommend to anyone!

I had my first Skype lesson with Louis Cesar Ewande today. The set up is top! LCE took care of every little detail. Sound is great and in sync, the visual is very nice. He uses 2 cameras which makes it very personal and gives a very clear view of his movements and hands. Top teacher in my living room with just a few clicks - Brilliant!

Que Louis ait des choses à transmette c'est indubitable, la question c'est: "Est ce faisable par Skype?" J’étais curieux alors j'ai pris rdv facilement, mail de confirmation, alarme une heure avant pour rappel... A l'heure et au jour dit nous voilà assis chez nous face à face pour 30' de cours... Louis voit et entend ce qu'on fait, son œil et son oreille font le reste et il peut donner ses corrections et ou ses indications très efficacement. J'en ressors avec le sentiment d'avoir reçu des réponses précises à ma question ..... C'est tout bon!!!! Allez-y vous ne le regretterez pas. Michel Weelen
