    excellent tool

    This book to great for the songwriter who needs that extra push from ok songs to great songs. Whether you are starting from scratch or revising songs already written, this book will help you see your songs with an objective eye. Not only will you write better but you'll listen better. You'll learn to listen to hit songs and figure out why they are hits. Great tool for any songwriter.

    One of the best structural integration techniques in a uniquely flawless way to learn.

    One of the best structural integration techniques in a uniquely flawless way to learn. My songs and the way I teach my students have never been more productive since I have taken the time to view your course. Well worth the cost. Sincerely, Jamil Leonardo
