Not necessarily. We developped our device with a user-friendly philosophy. However, we recommend it for a quicker grip. We are also happy to meet you in person and answer your questions on the spot. An introductory workshop of 3h is included in the price (only within EU). We organize it on the day of delivery of your MotionComposer. You can also learn on your own with our user manual, activity book and online tutorials (available soon).
