Brett seemed like a good teacher, but I found the audio was very scratchy and difficult to hear for this class. I checked with another member of the class, and they had the same issue. I brought this to the attention of Cozymeal but didn’t expect much of a response. Thankfully they took my concern seriously and worked to make it right. I have booked another class.
