What People Are Saying About It

“The most valuable thing I gained from the class was having the chance to actually learn from and talk to someone who actually does this stuff. I’ve been making (crappy) music for ten years now, but only this past 6 months have become interested in having a professional look at some of them for mastering.”

“You presented the course material with clarity and patience. The course material was excellent, and intense! Therefore, the downloadable webinar videos were absolutely essential. I plan on watching all the videos again in succession (maybe twice) while taking notes, then applying these concepts to my songs.”

“I appreciated that you took the time to answer each question thoroughly, and patiently. You also respected each question, which is very important. After all, there is nothing worse than an instructor who takes a condescending tone when responding to “beginner” level questions. So I am glad that you welcomed all questions equally.”
