Why are these lessons not available on DVD?
Unfortunately we ran into a problem with one of our cameras while recording these lessons which was not picked up until the edit stage. This has resulted in one of the 3 camera angles sometimes showing a slightly out-of-focus image. The learning is still the same but as the picture quality is sometimes not up to Musicademy's normal high standards we decided not to release this series to DVD. Rather than scrap the footage we've made it available as a download-only product. You can watch the sample video for an idea of the quality of the content.
