I personally find many of his posts educating and informative.
More importantly, I truly respect his dedication and generosity to share his knowledge on the forum.
If one take some effort in looking at his posts, one would wonder how did he manage to put on so much details on his posts consistently over a long period of time.
He really needs to be commended
Also, I would like to mention here about Mayla, who has been writing personal messages to me giving me advice on how to start learning the piano and have given many resources to read on.
