    Just tried the Colors/Materials tutorial and was impressed. I found the narration, along with the illustrations, easy to understand .

    However, when I tried the one about new tools, had the opposite experience. No narration and annoying music. Much too quickly moving illustrations and text.

    I am the type of person who learns best in a class and would take one if there was one nearby.
