RAV Essentials FOR BEGINNERS

At last, you own a beautiful RAV Vast. But you’re not sure how to get a good sound, how to keep to a beat, how to create new patterns or how to switch seamlessly between them. You’re frustrated and feel like you’ll never grasp this wonderful instrument. Sound familiar? This course is for you!

Videos that make sense.

Ever tried to learn a tune with only the front view of a RAV? Tricky, isn’t it? All our lessons are shot from above, so your left is his left, your right is his right. No more complicated reverse thinking that melts your brain. No more squinting and pausing to see which notes are being played. Every pattern is shown slowly and progressively so you can study and copy David’s hands around the RAV.

Fun & innovative notation system.

Symbols, colours, numbers and ghosts (wooooo)... To make tutorials productive as well as smile-inducing, David has created a very intuitive notation system for your hands. With just a few minutes’ practice each day, you can learn and remember any pattern. Follow the notes and enjoy rocking these new grooves.

100%

Progress at your own pace.

Enjoy lifetime access to the course : Dip into each lesson whenever you want, finish whenever you want. Play each lesson as many times as necessary and keep track of your overall progress to stay motivated.
