      Thanks Ahmad,

      I appreciate the compliment. Let me know if you have any suggestions or requests for upcoming lessons.

    Hi Leon, So very glad I found your website, I have decided to go back to school for music and your method is really helpful to me. Are you going to publish the book? Go Pirates!

      Hi Bea,

      Yes, ultimately I will publish my book, but I am only at the very beginning of the writing process for the full book. I will be updating and adding new lessons in the next few weeks. I am currently completing my doctorate in music composition so these past couple of weeks have been hectic but I will be making a new lesson soon. Be sure to signup for the free newsletter if you havent already so you can stay posted on the new lessons.

      Glad to hear that the One Minute Music Lesson helped you out,

      (PS, Go Pirates!, Cards! and the Fighting Illini!)

    All i got was an attachment with your business card. Not exactly what I was expecting. I guess the saying “Nothing is free” or “if it seems too good to be true” applies to this.
