“This workshop is really great. Kevin’s ability to balance the presentation of musical concepts with personal demonstration and hands-on coaching was perfect. It allowed for the session to have a private lesson feel, but with the advantages of group input only possible in the context of a larger master class. I learned a lot - when's the next one??” - Gary Versace
