Marianna Maruyama

I'm really impressed by the incredibly well-organized inventory of techniques and clear demonstration videos. There isn't anything like this anywhere else (in one place and systematically organized!) online. I think this is going to be a massive contribution to the field and practice of music. I love the references to different composers and individual works within each entry.
