2016 DUDUK LESSONS VIDEO 1.mp4_snapshot_00.05_[2016.06.01_02.22.12]

I’ve had several people contact me since learning via self study in written form isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and I realize not everyone has disposable income for online Skype lessons & thought developing a set of videos for a low price might be a useful alternative. All Videos are in HD MP4 format & some lesson packs include notation and audio accompaniment.
