I think the concepts in this course are what every intermediate Djembe/Dundun player should understand and apply. The quality of the video and music samples is excellent, made with a great musical and aesthetic taste. Louis's instruction style is humorous and personal, I enjoyed it very much! On the cons side, I would expect more material and more invitation to practice or even homework assignments. I was able to go through in an hour. Maybe it's just me, but I need a little push from the teacher to make me practice :) Also, in some rhythm examples, especially for phrasing, the difference between straight play and phrasing were really hard to spot.
