I've been looking for a fast pace course as some courses can be too slow and become a slightly tiring to watch. This one seems to be going at and I'm impressed with what I have learned so far and I'm only on the second lesson!

This is a wonderful course. Learned a lot about how drum racks can be used and edit beats appropriately.

Great course. Covers mainly the basics but there are elements you might not have come across.
DJ Kiva has a great way of presenting the info and is passionate (but in a subtle way) about what he does. This makes it more enjoyable to watch and learn.
