I personally study under the instructor of this course, Bjorn Bjorholm.  Bjorn is one of the leading bonsai professionals in the world and studied in Japan for 9 years prior to opening his own Nursery here in America.  Bjorn and Bonsai Empire knocked it out of the park with both the basic and intermediate bonsai courses.  These are excellent video courses with solid advice.                   - Andy Youtz, President Superfly Bonsai

Les Lonsdale (Bainbridge, US)
thorough course and great sound track

Not only does Bjorn cover a wide range of topics, he plays a wide assortment of good musical pieces. The 'boring' wiring/pinching segments are in fast-motion - thanks for that! A good course that is worth the price in my opinion.
