“Wes improved my musicianship by showing me the emotional changes through musical changes.  Wes improved my life by teaching me interaction and social skills through my song.”   -Middle School Student
“The pace and atmosphere was great. I loved the variety of tools/tricks. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
