Simon’s podcasts are filled with amazing information. He goes into great detail at times, but keeps it interesting with stories and great examples. I’m really enjoying listening to him
Been listening to this podcast for many years. I always learn something new. This latest podcast, "What Makes a Guitar Piece Difficult", is filled with incredibly valuable information for teachers and students. In addition, Dr. Powis wrote notes below; something I was planning to do as soon as I got back from my walk during which I listened to the podcast!
