What’s the estimated time to complete this pack?
Everyone learns at different rates. I’ve had some students who will progress through this pack in a matter of hours and others where it can take around 2 weeks to develop the coordination and sense or rhythm. At absolute beginner level you should be aiming to practice for at least 20 minutes each day and you should be using a metronome as much as possible to help with timing.
