Wow, you have no idea how excited I am to share with you what others have been unwilling to share. Some people think that it's job security to hide what you're doing from everyone so that no one can "take your spot".  What a joke, because we are all unique and I can show you EXACTLY what my settings are and your sound will still come out completely different than mine. It's in our spirit - not our gear.

If you're like me, your love for music drives you to keep learning and improving. The feeling that you get when your music starts coming together is indescribable. Pure Nirvana.

Our industry is in big trouble right now because they forgot that it's about what you and I want, NOT what they want to cram down our throats to make a quick buck. We have too much love to continue watching our passion and joy get hijacked.

I want you to come join me on a fantastic and informative ride to reclaim and uplift the quality of music and re-raise the bar back up high. A highly crafted song is a thing of beauty.

We have the tools - we have the technology - all we need is each other to make it better than ever. I'm going to show you all the small stuff that makes the difference. You are not alone.
