Fantastic!

I love this podcast! There are so many concepts that I have either not known or have thought of in a limited way. This podcast has opened many pathways for me!

top notch performers and teachers

It's so great to have such pros who are also excellent teachers and who take the time to answer questions. Even after attending Berklee, I'm always learning something new from these guys.
