Providing the Guidance You Depend on... Remotely!
While COVID-19 has presented its challenges, one positive development is awareness of the ease and usefulness of video lessons!
Pre-recorded lessons can be POWERFUL since the process cultivates independence and critical thinking skills.
Riders may include their own audio with the ride they submit. It's a great way to:
  1. convey what you are feeling
  2. develop your eye
  3. create a verbal "journal" of your thought process
One lesson turns into many as you are able to watch repeatedly and gain more insight!
Submit A Video or Test
Wolfgang will review and provide voice-over feedback. You'll receive an edited version of your recording that includes Wolfgang's Wisdom!
